Screen RQD
on: April 20, 2013, 01:04:13 AM
I've been thinking of a wee project for my CT. Does anyone have an old screen they want to give/sell me. I'm not bothered if it scratched, or even chipped along the top.
Cheers
Slomo

Hi Slomo,
I've only got the standard OEM screen and the OEM touring screen. The smaller screen is OK, but I didn't get on with the touring screen at all.

I have the Givi Airflow on my CT, and it's very good, although some members don't like it either. I think you might get quite a few offering various screens that they've tried but didn't get one with.

Good luck in finding the right one for you.

PS. Is that bike clean yet?

Aye aye Doc,
I've got both screens as well. I was actually thinking of cutting one down to around the height of the clocks to see if it will reduced bufting around my head. I know it won't give a lot of proctection, but I can always change it back over before I go for the longer runs etc.
Just a thought.

Hi, this may or may not be helpfull I'm 5' 8" had the bike lowered 20mm and had the same problem with the wind hitting the top of my helmet and sort of shaking my head.
I made 2 rubber washers 4mm thick and placed them under the top of the screen, thats the standard small screenin the max height position, I know longer have any problems.   :001:

Good idea Vfor:) I just fancy cutting a screen down. Perhaps I can just take my one of first to see how it affects the wind noise. As I say, this will only be for day to day riding, and if I'm going away on a decent ride, then I can put the touring screen back on.
