Screen buffeting what`s the conclusion?
on: May 09, 2013, 07:47:01 PM
Hi Guys

Quite a while since I've been on the forum, managed to put my back out big time last year and have been off the bike for 6 months!

Anyway, like a few people the one thing that let's the bike down for me is the buffeting in the chops, I did buy the taller Givi screen last year but it didn't make any difference  :003:

So, not wishing to rake through every message on the subject is there now a definitive conclusion to this problem so I can sort the bike out before I venture into France later this year? I rode my mates RT1200 at the weekend and it was really nice not to have my head shaken to bits!

Cheers Guys

Oh sh#t, I was hoping the Givi screen would be the answer. Best wait to see what the more experienced peeps on here have got to say before I buy one then.

Hi WWW

When I first looked into sorting this problem over a year ago Givi had only just brought out this "higher" touring screen which unfortunately hasn't worked for me but I understand they have brought out another two piece screen which is adjustable which might be the answer but that's another dollop of money hence I want to know whether there is a final conclusion so that I can spend my money wisely!

I went away right after posting that to do a bit of research as it happens. I thought the only one they did was the two piece jobbie. I didn't realise there was another one as well, thanks.

I now cannot help myself, I am trawling through loads of bloomin posts on the subject  :087:

When you say 'Givi Screen' do you mean the Airflow or another version :261:

I've had the Airflow for a few months now, and now I've found the ideal height for the top screen there's no buffeting.
More adjusting required maybe  :084:

another +1 for the Airflow...There is loads of adjustment with the Airflow ,but as with all these screens a little perseverance is required to find the sweet spot..... I actually like a little buffeting/turbulance  to remain as it gives me a better feel for the riding .... :305:

Givi airflow is tops. Since fitting I have found that "nirvana" position, no buffeting, no flies on visor, but still some air over visor. Its easy cleaned, just slide off to kitchen sink for cleaning and no scatches.
