Hi, there are a few threads on this but couldn't reach a conclusion.

Now I've done airbox, 17gr dr pulley washer, bike goes really well. Had a good run today and now wind buffet at 80mph is more of an issue as I'd like to ride faster.

Have I think stock screen, pic attached. What is recommendation for best comfort touring screen.

This (kappa) looks promising, anyone tried?

I had the two piece adjustable Givi shield on my 500 Touring. Nicely made, excellent & easy fit.

It was acceptable cool on stinking hot days in town when set low and, when cranked up, created a great dead pocket of air for me to hide my 6'4" frame behind while cruising down the highway at 130kph+.

Just don't try to adjust it while moving because it will jam, adjustment is easy when stopped.

It was about $200CDN in 2012.

From my experiences with the MP3, the Piaggio optional tall screen works the best. Keeps me dry and out of the wind on the coldest wettest days, yet I still can just see over the top edge and get just enough air.

Tried the GIVI, didn't like it and wind buffeting at higher speeds meant it got stuck back in the box after a couple of hours.

On my Honda 1300, I recently installed a Puig and am very pleased with that unit although the Honda has a motorized windscreen adjuster. The only issue with the Puig are a couple of minor areas in the middle of the screen where it distorts vision. Probably a factory defect and will have it exchanged to see if this was a exception.

Yeah, that is the GIVI that I tried on my MP3. Did not like at all.

It was flimsy and floppy.
