Touring Screen
« on: May 14, 2012, 05:12:34 PM »
Tested the CT again today and being a much windier day the standard screen was useless I feel a Touring Screen should be fitted as std. Had a chat with the dealer who said no screens available until 25th May earliest. A Friend of mine also tried the CT out and reportred the same wind problem his dealer said he had had a lot of complaint re the low screen and the touring screens were on back order!  Is this a case of spoil the ship for a couple of quid :232: Dealer was pushing for deposit but he had no chance until i've tried out the bike with a touring screen :431:



Honda you make a good quality machine and then  :172: it up for a few pennies ....................not happy should be waiting for delivery  :232:

The standard screen can be moved higher up the bracket. Loosen the 4 studs and pull the screen down then away. Relocate in the higher holes, push the screen up into place then re-tighten. I'm 6ft 2 inches and it's perfect for me.

Does anybody know how much taller the "Touring" screen is over the standard one? 

And will the Givi Screen be taller than the Honda Touring screen ?  :211:

Yes. 126mm higher - 460mm high and 390mm wide (base) 300mm wide (middle) 360mm wide (top) - just measured it

The Givi screen is 510mm high and 420mm wide - sounds good

You're welcome.

I think the Givi screen will provide much better weather protection with the extra width. The extra 50mm height will take away the buffeting I get with an open visor.
