This might help a little if the sun is at the right angle... Or... It might Blind you more...

I don't know... Never had it... But its a thought... It fits up to a 2008 C50... I'm guessing the Speedo's are bigger in the newer models... Again I wouldn't know I have been out of the Suzuki World since 2007...

The chrome around the speedo? Remove it and paint match it to your bike.
