I have the stock windsheild with the Laminar lip. I love it 96% of the time. I find at very high speed or cross wind that I still get buffeting (but still not as terrible as without the Lip). I'm thinking of trying the bike with a sheild cut down very low (maybe only a few inches above the mounting bolts) and just enjoy the open air. One draw back to this idea is that my windsheild at the moment is COVERED in dirt! So I guess that means that dirt will be on me instead.

I'm using the stock windshield but mounted a couple of inches above the stock top notch. Works well for me, I'm 6' tall.

Stocker on low for the warm months, MPcycledesigns for the cold and rainy months. In fog and rain, a big screen is the way to go.

Windstrom Manta. . . . The only screen even close to that for me was the MP Cycle Design I tested for Paul a year ago.

I'm 6'4" and have no issue with the stock screen. If I didn't want to get any wind I would drive a cage or a goldwing. As I have said on here before.. a lot of the buffeting people complain about is due (in my opinion) to the lid they are wearing. Some helmets seem to slide through the air easier and smoother than others.

Thumbs up

I have the Givi mounted in the middle position (no Madstad). Because the Suzuki Gel-seat raised me 1 1/2" inches higher in the saddle.

I use the stock screen with a Madstad bracket. The Madstad really helped eliminate the buffeting problems I initially had. Mostly I like the combination but am considering making a wider and bit taller screen to try.

Stocker, but cut down by 3 1/2" so it's flush with the fairing. A bit chilly in the winter, but we only have *THAT* season in NC for about 6 weeks.
