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.

I have fitted a 2018 model screen on my 2014 DL1000A and the annoying buffeting that I had with the old screen in many of the positions went away. Some people still have a buffeting issue with the 2018 OEM screen but for my mate (who has changed to the newer screen too) and I the change has been remarkable, considering that it doesn't look that different to the old one and isn't anywhere near the size of a Givi Aiflow.

I had a small GIVI universal wind/fly screen on my SV650 when I first got it years ago. It looked pretty good and kept the wind off my chest, but it did seem to blast my helmet. Most of the time it was pretty even, but at certain speeds or wind direction, it felt like somebody was repeatedly slapping my helmet on one side then the other. Besides screen design, speed, and wind, rider height and position is also a factor.

I looked at the Puig 7229 instructions. One is to loosely fasten down one side of the screen, then push and stretch the screen to line up the holes on the other side.
So, it isn't formed properly to begin with?
Are the Givi screens like this too?

2018 1000XT, black. The Night's Watch. Givi engine bars, rear wheel mud guard, radiator screen. Givi V56 Litre Monokey topcase. Puig screen. Freeway Blaster horn. Speedohealer. SW Motech guards for R. brake reservoir, R. brake cylinder, exhaust pipe valve. Aprilia Tuono mirrors.
2006 DL1000, The Red Rhino. Gone for good.

I installed a Puig 7229 this past weekend. The holes are in the ballpark of correct and so you'll need to help things along. The V Strom's windshield ratchet mechanism is sort of a wobbly thing, so it's hard to place the blame. As to stretching the Puig- it's pretty thick and strong, and it's not going to stretch.

Btw, I didn't ride a lot with the Puig, but the Puig seems to work pretty good. I have it mounted in the lowest position, and tilted one click from all the way leaned back. I can look over the top of the Puig shield just the way I like it, but not get an air stream on my helmet.

Anyone else try the Puig 7229?

Installed my Kappa Airstream (It's a Givi screen with a Kappa sticker over the logo) and I iust "blow" away the factory screen and the Madstad bracket/screen combo I had on my 650.

It so quiet now I might try to ride without earplug again.

So far the Givi Airflow seems to smooth out the air stream, but I sure don't like the bulged rim at the top. Very annoying and much prefer the cut edge on the Windstrom Manta on my 650.

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.

I had an airstream on my 2014 and it was great, but i was just looking at the Puig as a cheaper option. How are you liking yours now that you've got 6 months of use on it?

I'm getting no real buffeting on my '18 Strom 1000. The new designed windshield works fine for me.
