Windshield

So a tree killed my puig screen, had to put stock back on. I have tons of buffeting now. For reference I have tall seat and am 6'1. So a couple questions....

Does anyone have a taller screen they want to part with?

Has anyone put on one of those front spoiler screen extender or wind deflectors on and how well do they work?

Here is the link to my now dead screen.

Many thanks.

I have a Madstad 18" adventure windscreen you can have if you are local and pick up. I'm located in Chambersburg PA.

This is only the windscreen and does not include brackets. Not interested in shipping as it is bulky and would probably cost $30 to ship within the lower 48

Those little add on's make a big difference. I have the MRA Vario and it's neat-o. I have a laminar lip on another bike and it works well too. Just non adjustable.
Why not just order up another Puig Screen?

The best screen for your bike is without a doubt the Givi Airflow. It's so far ahead of everything else it is simply no contest. Unless it s a beauty contest. Then all bets are off.

This is as subjective as the day is long. On my DL650 I had the stock screen, Givi Air flow and a 18" Madstad 18" Adventure I liked the Madstad best as it eliminated the most amount of buffeting (not all, most).


Interestingly enough my 06 R1200GS has the stock windscreen and my 07 R1200GD came with a Givi Airflow. I have them both and have ridden back to back.

Just yesterday after 5,000 miles and several months of trying to adjust the Givi to get it to where it doesn't buffet I threw my hands in the air. I then got on ADV Rider found a used stock windscreen and bought it. The 06 and 07 are 98% the same and the stock windscreen buffets 90% less than the Givi.


Windscreens, seats, handle bar bends and any other ergo/comfort related item an individual like/dislike thing.

Bit presumptuous

The Madstad complete system is by far the best windscreen IMNSHO. These guys really know what they are doing.

https://madstad.com/collections/suzuki

Just keep an eye on the adjustment fasteners as they like to work loose tho they are secured from falling away. Users suggest getting one size up since there is such a wide vertical adjustment as well as angle.
Personally I don't like lipped screens.
Awful amount of clutter in your face.




I had Madstad on both my Wees and it's even better on the CB500x as it has winglets.

Gentlemen,

The OP posted in the 2014+ DL1000 forum area. I assume he has a 2014+ DL1000.

Presumptuous? What are you assuming? That your experience on other models applies to the Vee2/3?

I believe you will find that owners of Vee2/3s that have tried multiple screens agree. Check the posts. Do the reading. The numbers in the data pool endorsing the screen significantly reduce the chance it is just a subjective opinion.

Gen 1 bikes less so, but then we were talking about Vee2/3s right?

I've tried the Givi on 2 totally different manufactures and have not come to like it. I'll not try it on a 3rd.


Your post stating "The best screen for your bike is without a doubt the Givi Airflow" is one mans opinion not panacea.

Absolutely, one man's opinion. When asked (several times a week) that is the opinion I give. Based on talking to many members, having tried several screens, and understanding the engineering behind wind screen design, and the flexibility built into the Airflow, and feedback from those who switch to it.

Just one man opinion.

And when you say you have tried Givi on two different bikes, was it the "air flow?" Where any of those bikes Vee2/3s? Or where they just Givi brand screens and misc. random bikes?

Could you please explain why you think what ever screen you like and have tried on the Vee2/Vee3 works better than the compression jet, expansion jet, double layer with seven inches of adjust ability than the airflow? Then tell us about the feedback from others that you have gathered.

Or not. What ever.

How about a joke? Know any good jokes?

Here's one. Yesterday I saw a guy throw all his scrabble letters on the road. I asked him, "what's the word on the street?"

Both of the Givi's I have had on motorcycle were "Airflow" models and in both instances I did not like them. I don't care what bike you put them on it is the opinion of the guy sitting behind it if it works to his standards or not.


The Airflow can have fancy compression/expansion jet technology or it can suck like a Hoover that doesn't mean it'll work for everyone. The stock screen on my R1200GS has none of this declassified alien technology but works a 100 times better at eliminating buffeting for me verses the Airflow. Why is this?


Making the blanket statement that the Givi Airflow is the best of the best is simply not true. I've had 2 and did not like either. Sure the Airflow works for a lot of people but it does not work for everyone and that is why several companies produce alternate options. Honestly if the Airflow was the end all be all of windscreens don't you think Suzuki would source them from Givi?
