I'm not Tony, but here's some places to start for your windscreen
Gustaffson Windscreens: http://www.bikescreen.com/
Clearview Windscreens: http://www.clearviewshields.com/
MRA Windscreens: http://www.mra.de/English/PRODUCTS.HTM
I have a Gustaffson +4 which works well, but turbulent air still hits
the helmet with the resulting noise (not much improvement over stock.
Had a Clearview that I was ok with until a bird took it out. I
recently bought the MRA touring screen. It's shorter than stock, but
with the upturned lip at the top it provides a very nice ride. I
think of all 3, I'm happiest with the MRA.

I hear what you are saying, but its just not sinking in. If removing
the tank is so easy, why all the whining about the air filter. Also,
it seems to me that I have many times read warnings about the fuel
lines under the tank getting pinched, cracked or otherwise screwed up
during tank replacement. I believe I will leave my choke as it is.
Triumph should have put the knob on the side anyway.

replaced my fuel lines with high pressure fuel injection hose they are
almost 'unkinkable' anyway-
You should remove the tank to replace your fuel lines & vacuum hose- clean
the microscopic fuel filters etc... It's part of general maintenance!
Otherwise you may discover yourself removing the tank in some
less-than-ideal location to fix one of the above issues in the future.
If you are truly 'afraid' of doing this type of work, at least take the poor
bike to a mechanic and have them do it~

confortable with. Lifting the tank lets you check your fuel/vac
lines for cracking etc, doesn't cause it. The airfilters are awkward
to replace. Much more fiddly than lifting the tank.
If you saw it done once, you'd be fine.
