Who's happy with their standard screen?
« on: September 23, 2012, 01:05:33 AM »
The more miles I do the more content I am with the std screen. I really dont like the looks of some of the aftermarket ones either and if i really wanted to sit behind a screen all day i would have bought an RT  :008:

Anyone else happy with the std offering?

wasn't the young fella bringing it over? he's lost too?  :430:  :002:

I just got a new Nolan 104 lid and I am using the honda touring screen (i'm 6') and the screen on it highest setting it still catches the top 1/3rd of my helmet. Would be interesting to try the std screen with the new lid as I only had an enduro lid before

its actually not bad with it off altogether and it looks like you can remove the mounting brackets for a clean look - worth trying everything with whats kicking around in the shed first

if no good It'll have to be an MRA screen next, the smoke with the attachable lip thingy looks ok in my eyes

The only thing that is bothering me about it just now is having to clean flies off my visor again! Having said that I haven't been out in the pissing rain with it yet so I might change my mind.

Just about to try and get a quick 150 miles on the bike just now and have moved the screen in to the high position just to see what difference that makes but at the moment on the low setting I am not getting any turbulence around my helmet so not complaining too much.

150 miles later and the high setting makes little difference, if anything I prefer the lower.

Will more than likely go the MRA route before doing any big mileage. Hoping to get to Spain about this time next year and the journey down to Plymouth is a real grind on the motorway.

Thanks for the recommendation grahew :031:

My issue with the standard screen is simply the noise.  I was planning on getting a Givi Airflow, having been very happy with the one I had on my GS.  However, I am getting fed up with waiting for Italy to get back of its holidays and start making stuff, so the MRA looks tempting.
