2012 Screen Replacement - Which One?

Hi, I am having to replace the widshield on my 2012 - (I've cracked the original). I was pretty happy with the standard original, buffeting acceptable, but a little too much wind noise. Thinking of the Suzuki Vario Touring screen or the MRA Vario Touring one. Has anyone got any opinions on these. Thanks

Check out my Parabellum one, I'm very happy with it. There is a separate thread here somewhere

Replacement w. s.

Two w.s. come to mind to replace your stocker. The Givi AF3101 adjustable shield is much better than stock. I had the Givi for most of the summer and then decided to try another shield, the Givi D260 for 2011 and older with the Madstad Bracket. I am happy to report that it is better than the A F shield and def. blocks more wind overall. It's the Madstad that makes it so effective. I actually had about 2.5 inches cut off the shield. I am 6 ft with 32 in inseam. The Madstad/Givi D260 combo is actually a bit cheaper than the Givi AF 3101. That's my recommendation. Good luck whatever you choose. And welcome. Great bike.

Please stick to the thread futo posted. It's titled the only one for a reason.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
