    Aftermarket windscreen still use factory adjust lever?

    Very close to ordering a Powerbronze tall shield from the UK, and just wondering if I will still be able to use the factory height adjust lever?

    I see pictures of this screen on another thread but can't tell if you can still adjust it up and down.

    Does anybody know?

    Thanks!

    Hi Thork,

    Just be aware that this screen will probably not fit your bike.

    You may not be aware that prior to 2016 the CT screen was different and was not adjustable with a lever, the mounting holes on 2016 model onwards are different.

    Oh, I see... Perhaps I'll keep searching for one specifically designed for 2016.

    MRA looks like they make one for the 2016.

    I guess my question remains.

    Assuming I find one made for 2016+ would it still utilize the factory adjustment?

    Let's say with the MRA Vario Touring Screen:

    Open to other suggestions for taller screens for the 2016 that retain the factory adjustability!

    Thanks!

    Hi  Thork

    I am 6 feet tall and I order  the Medium CalSci screen for my CT 2016, last year
    With the Honda factory level adjustment mechanism I still have plenty of height possibility

    It fits very easily as replacement of the factory adjustable screen
    Screws and all grummets needed are furnished

    I am very satisfied of the protection (taller and wider for cold wind at spring time or at fall)
    The design is may be questionable .....but what do you need ?

    I guess I don't NEED anything, but it would be nice to have a little more of a bubble of calm air than the stock screen at the highest setting provides.

    I'm 6'5" tall so taller is better for screen replacements.

    Had the tallest Parabellum on my Tenere and it still wasn't quite tall enough.

    Hello folks,

    Not sure how relevant this is to you chaps, but I'm 6'4", and I have the Givi Airflow two piece adjustable screen on my CT, and have found that the highest setting doesn't necessarily produce best results ! !

    Bye for now.

    Hi Thork, I also have a CalSci screen  and I must say it works pretty good, especially with the CT adjustable windscreen option. When it gets hot, I drop the screen and when I need more protection, I bring it up. I find it gives me more protection to the shoulder area compare to the original windscreen.
