Scotsy re the Screen saga your right the Touring Screen needs melting down! the Givi Screen is as much use as a chocolate tea pot so its back to the standard screen........plus a mra X-Screen?..........hope this sorts it out its costing me a fortune :005:

5' 11" in not  tall as some but I tried the Givi in both low and high positions and once up to 60 plus mph buffeting kicks in ,seems better with the std screen its windy but no buffeting :007: perhaps a MRA x-Screen is the answer :188:

Before ditching the Honda touring screen completely give the bracket modification a try, you have nothing to lose as it is only an elongation of a hole which is completely hidden when fitted and completely reversible with no ill effects

HarryH also has been doing something similar to try and get the top of the screen closer to the rider

good Luck

Hi Grahew, i am only 5ft 7" so i assume that is the difference, when riding today i lift my butt off the seat about 2" and i start to get my helmet in the airflow that passes over the screen, must be where your head is in normal riding. i used a mra vario screen previously on a Aprilia Caponord and found in  of little use in combating buffeting (i also tried a laminar lip and a taller Givi screen on the Aprilia and concluded the buffeting could'nt be fixed !) Cheers

Hi Trecker, thanks for you road test I've just ordered a vario-x screen as a last resort if this does not fix the buffeting I don't know what will. It's a shame the bike is brilliant but let down by the screen  :110:

I had a Givi Airflow on my GS, which was not pretty but was the most fabulous screen for a smooth quiet ride on the motorway, whilst still being able to slide it down the its lowest setting for bimbling around single track roads in the more remote parts of these islands. 

Givi are developing the Crosstourer version and although it is not ready yet, I shall be amongst the first customers when it does appear because I agree with you that the wind protection is the only weak point I have found in the past 1,000 miles:  http://www.givi.co.uk/Screens--spoilers/AIRFLOW/AF1110

We'll be waiting for the CT version of the Givi Airflow (I used a Givi screen on my old Transalp and was good).
And meanwhile, grahew, when you receive your vario x-screen we will be waiting for a picture of it ...  :169:
It doesn’t matter the fast you go, but the far you arrive ...
