The Givi USA warehouse I literally just down the road from us. We can get anything in the warehouse in a matter of hours.

I have been advocating the airflow ever since putting one on my 2014 DL1000. It works for everybody except the very, very tall (above 6'4"). It has seven inches of up and down adjust-ability and performs as if it were taller and wider than it's actual dimensions.

The upper screen is just below eye level.Any difference as to where the bottom piece is mounted?There are three choices.
Mine came with spacers for the 4 mounting bolts. I mounted the bottom piece in the holes that are recessed Using the spacers. In this position, the “ears” on the bottom piece fit snuggly against the upper surface of the fairing. There might be a better way or a preferred position but so far I like this setup.

You know the guy who discovers something that the rest of the world already knows and then goes on the spread the word as the self appointed expert?

So after a relationship with Vstroms going back to 2005, I installed a Givi Airflow windscreen today. It was windy and only plus 3 degrees so also a great day for a first impression. I am absolutely amazed at the improvement. I have ridden motorcycles for almost 50 years (49) and I was never really sure what buffeting was (it’s a motorcycle, I’m going fast outside, it’s windy) but today in the absense of buffeting, I now know exactly what buffeting is (and at my age it can be one more thing I can forget).

I bought a "new to me" 2012 650 DL ABS this past April and it had the WindStrom shield on it. Pretty tall with curved flair outs on the sides. Super happy with it, almost no buffeting at 75 mph. Unfortunately I think the company is no longer in business. But if anyone finds one I would buy it.

Thanks for posting. After reading endless posts on Stromtropper I installed the Airflow on my 2013 Wee a couple years ago. It is just amazing. I routinely just forget to lower my helmet face shield even at highway speeds. Best motorcycle mod I have ever done.
