Givi airflow or Puig with visor?
on: December 19, 2015, 10:48:41 PM
Hi all,

Having got my first decent run on my CT I now realise a screen upgrade from the standard touring screen is in order. But I'd value anyone's feedback on of they've experienced both the givi airflow and the puig with the visor. Which gives be the best wind/buffeting protection? May I say what a superb machine this bike is. Can't wait for the summer riding to start!

Any advice appreciated.

Adam.

The puig is sh#te IMHO. The tilt thing at the end does SFA. Also considering how much it costs it is still only Acrylic

I believe just stick with the touring screen and buy an adjustable bracket

I cannot say it looks pretty, but the Givi Airflow works for me.

I'll second that....At any speed
Due to recent financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off until further notice.

Me too, plus if you want to feel the wind you just remove the sliding screen and you are left with a mini fly screen

i think the airflow is ok but at 120 kmh the bottom part just isnt wide enough with 30cm. the wind buffets directly to the side of the helmet from there.  :827: On top its quiet.

The only reason it is not wide enough is to give room to the handguards at full lock. The handguards kan be put back at least 5 cm til they touch my fingers at full spread. So with adjusted handguards and a wider bottom screen it would be good.

But a wider bottom screen i cant find. Maybe a dl1000 vstrom or versys1000 can be made to fit  :187:

Hello Swift Add,

I'm 6'4" and have the Givi Airflow on my CT. I find that it offers all the protection I need. I might add that the highest setting does not necessarily achieve the best result !

Also, as someone else mentioned, it's quite nice in summer to remove the top section altogether !

Bye for now.
