    Just joined the ranks of those who own a Honda Crosstourer, purchased new March.
    Happy to say I am delighted and enjoying the DCT clutch. Never had a bike before with DCT. Certainly adds to the riding experience.

    Hi and  :400: Alpax. After 2 years of Dct ownership I've yet to experience any downside to the system, especially when touring two up.

    Has anyone changed the front screen?
    Although I have the taller screen from honda I am about to change it as it seems a bit small. I am experiencing buffeting which is due to the size of screen. I am 6.2" and need something higher, any recommendations?

    Just about everyone has changed the screen, at least on the pre-Highlander model. There is a huge thread on here entitled "Screen solutions". Somewhat of a holy grail the perfect screen. With helmet design's among the different effects that the same screen can give two similar people.
    Myself at 6 1" am happy with the Givi touring screen which I don't have set at the full hight due to it fouling on the mirrors in full lock which can be overcome by putting spacers in the top holes in the bracket.   Research or trying out another members Ct with a different screen is the cheaper option.
    Good luck.
