I do not quite understand the ‘buffeting’ thing. Can someone point me in a direction to learn what this is? I have never experienced my helmet being ‘jostled’ while riding. Is there any other symptoms of buffeting? So if it does happen, I can put a name, and solution to work.

Imagine your pillion shaking you around your shoulders! Blurred vision, just one of the affects. It all changes with speed. Worst bike I ever tried was a VFR800, despite all the rave reviews. Vibration through the bars, that transfered to the foot pegs as the speed rose, then the seat. Then my knees started flapping in the slipstream, then my non existant pillion gave me a good shaking. Something about that bike I did not like!
So far on my 2017 Strom I have fited a Puig visor that sort of improved things, I then tried rubber grommits on the lower screen bolts that tipped the screen back a little more. Slight improvement.
I then bought the Givi Airflow and it is not the wonderful screen as many people have said for me. 5' 10" 32" inside leg. I find on the lowest setting set right back it is good at lower speeds, on the motorway pushed upright is best, but still not great. On higher settings it obscures the road and not much improvement, and with all our potholes I need a clear view of where the next the hole is. We used to ride on the left, now we ride on whats left!
I had a CalSci screen on my Stelvio, with NACA hole, worked great. I made a similar NACA hole on my Caponord and it worked great on that as well, so looking at CalSci's site I am going to try a similar hole on the stock screen., it's sitting there taking up space so why not. It either works or not.
