Try them through their latest eBay listing;

They were always very responsive to me on fitment and color questions...

Just pulled the trigger. Asked for light smoke for what should come out to $121 shipped.
@Hungus, is yours light smoke?

Mine is (allegedly) dark smoke. Since I don’t sprechen zie Polish, I am unsure what I got. That aside I like it a lot. Was tempted by the orange one, but that might have been over the top. Post pics once yours is installed. I’d like to see light smoke...

Same here. It would have been perfect for low light driving, but my wife said it looks like yellow sunglasses, i.e. stupid. It's just a bit cheesy, while light/dark smoke is on point.

I just figured out I can read Polish. The bag my screen was packed in is inscribed “CG”, which stands for “ciemmy grafit”. That loosely translates to “dark smoke”. Yours should be marked “jasny grafit” for “light smoke”. Looking forward to seeing yours installed. As an aside, I was on a group ride over the mountains here in Arizona yesterday. The screen takes all the wind off your torso above 55 mph... good stuff

So I received mine in mail, and tried to install it last night.

Immediately, I ran into one issue. Although mounting brackets are made well and finished well, the bolts that hold them to the motorcycle are too short. Because the length is insufficient, the bolts only make a few rotations before being fully tight. That is, the threads are grabbing with only two teeth or so. In other words, the grip is not reliable because bolts are too short.

Below are comparisons of upper bracket bolts and lower bracket bolts with their OEM counterparts. Keep in mind that the upper bracket bolts are also intended to go through a rather thick washer to create a gap between the bracket and the mounting surface.

@Hungus, did you run into any issues?

My installation went better than yours, why I can’t really say. I just Loctited ‘em all and stuck it together. The screws seems to have reasonable engagement. You could talk to the guys at Cacko, but I would likely just locally source a longer screw(s) and have at it. The “light smoke” color looks great...
