    Disappointed with Givi Airflow screen

    My 2014 DCT came with a PUIG screen fitted, which gave me a headache as seemed to concentrate the airflow onto my visor/top of my helmet. The seller gave me the original screen as well, and I found this much better as the airflow was now hitting me in the chest. I'm 6'3".

    I thought I'd give the Givi Airflow a go after fitting the Touratech high seat, as I was hoping the air would be directed over my head, making my journey quieter (even though I wear earplugs), and perhaps keep me a little dryer. However, in the highest setting, it was awful at motorway speeds! Tried lowering it half-way down, no better really.

    I think the Airflow is the biggest screen you can get for the Crosstourer, so I'm guessing I'll be going back to the standard screen :(

    Happy with mine, but then I’m only 6’

    could you attach a flip to the top of the Givi Airflow? I'm 6'2 with standard seat and its just about enough. So you probably just need a fraction more height! You could place your left hand at the top of the screen and see if it helps, cheaper then buying a flip and finding its not enough!

    At 6ft I have had the Honda touring screen on both the CT & AT with no problem and can ride visor up at all speeds. I am assuming you have the Honda standard screen Dan.

    I had no joy with the Givi Airflow either. I use the MRA screen that has a deflector similar to the one posted by Fat Bert. It’s been the best solution I’ve found for me, and I’ve tried several. At 20 quid I may get one and try it fitted to the Honda touring screen.
