Tall screen wanted

Maybe a long shot - but you never know

Looking for a "higher than stock" screen at sensible money

Anyone?

Many thanks

Look for a Givi airflow instead, just my opinion.

As with all Givi kit, no doubt it's great quality ...........

However, I want a slightly taller screen - not what looks like it's come off an F1 car or something about to sail across the Atlantic - thats HUGE!.  Surely has to have a detrimental effect on performance and stability at speed?

There's the honda touring screen...however, not sure it will be any better than the OEM screen TBH.
What do you mean it's raining....get ootside and ride the thing.

I'm hoping someone might have  one hanging around in the garage - perhaps after selling the bike perhaps?

The Puig one looks a bit higher than stock

Ive one of these Bert:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-POWERBRONZE-DARK-TINT-FLIP-SCREEN-HONDA-VFR-1200-X-VFR1200X-CROSSTOURER-12-/111127211281?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item19dfb2ad11

Its not for sale but they aint that dear new. It does offer better wind protection but can cause a bit of buffeting.

That looks a bit of alright for £60 - worthy of due consideration

Whilst I'm used to a little bit of head buffeting, noticeably at "making progress" speeds, my usually well-ventilated Shoei helmet is now very windy inside and being a contact lens wearer over long periods it's becoming a bit of a problem

The Powerbronze double- bubble may not make that much difference

I have a spare Givi D1110ST screen. It's 19cm higher than the stock standard screen so gives much better wind protection.

I don't use it any more because I had the bike lowered and put the Honda Touring Screen back on. I found that the Givi, when it got mucky, was too tall for me to see over.

You can have it for £25 plus postage or we could meet somewhere in North Wales (Ponderosa?). That way we both get a ride out....
