I'm not sure that the “clean” air from a wind tunnel would duplicate the problem. With the stock windshield the performance in the high position is not too bad on a calm day, but on a windy day where the wind hits the windshield at an angle, the turbulence causes my helmet to be pushed side to side at a high frequency which is horrible.
With the US Suzuki high windshield in the high position my helmet vibrates in time with the top of the flexible windshield. If I steady the top of the windscreen with my hand the buffeting goes away.
Also on the windscreen topic, I would like to see adjustably of height and rake of the windshield from the saddle without the use of tools. Perhaps by use of knurled knobs on the “dash”. This would allow for adjustment to the optimum position for different riding conditions.
