Surprise surprise a screen thread.
on: March 17, 2015, 03:38:49 PM
Well after about 700 miles and playing with the std and touring screens in various positions I've ordered the Givi Airflow. I found the std screen was ok in the the upper position but certainly not visor up gs adv comfort and the Honda touring felt like someone was tapping my head repeatedly at higher speeds, better protection but the buffeting was definitely a no go for me. I went for the airflow after a recommendation from a friend with a CT. Anyone else gone with this option ?

Nope, but best results reported back ot the CT forum has been to turn the thing upside down, it apparently actually works then...

Yep. lots if guys seemed to get the best results from that specific screen but the would turn the adjustable section by 180deg so the bulbous section is at the bottom. (I'm only quoting actual airflow owners) I went for the fixed givi touring screen.... it was wasted money but yes, the aerodynamics or lack there-off has this nasty habit of doing weird things to your head. I was that desperate to sort the issue I ditched the hand guards and made a bigger screen.

Ah ok, I look fwd to trying it out. I hate the screen problems that new bikes tend to throw at you. Must have spent a fortune over the years pi $$ing about with aftermarket bits of plastic. Usually Puig have been good to me in the past, mra rubbish. Let's see what happens this time.

Don't hold your breath!! Puig and givi touring are dimensionally identical. Puig looks awesome (light smoked screen) but from 80mph onwards or with a strong headwind tends to be forced downwards. The major bollocks honda made with the ct was the handlebars on full lock turn into the actual screen hence why the very narrow middle section and the bigger upper section. Our main problems stem from the handle bar cut-outs and that wind rides up your forearm and starts splitting over the shoulder. This creates buffeting and uneven windflow creating a vacuum and turbulent air - aka noise.
