Clean your windsheild with Laquer Thinner, trust me. :evil: :shock:

(had this little tar spot or something on there, bad idea)
















Hey Honey,
Remember I told you I wanted to order that new Givi windshield for the bike?

Hopefully - you learned this on the lower section of your shield. If so - maybe you can tint it with spray paint or window film from the inside?

Hopefully, window film tint will hide the smudge marks?

ORRRR
Get your electric jigsaw out with a fine tooth saw blade (for cutting metal) and make yourself a custom Mini shield & paint the inside black?

I cleaned my faceshield with a product made for cleaning the glass
of digital scanners. It put a haze on it. Was an experience riding home
that night.

I decided on the Windstrom Manta. They are backordered 2 to 3 weeks. I ordered it a few days ago. I'll give a report when I test it out.

If it's REALLY BAD, start with Novus 3, then 2, then 1. It will take out a lot of nasties from your screen. And speaking of screens, My vote is for the Cee Baileys 21.5 incher. Did a great job of getting rid of the buffeting and I can look over it with no problems. BTW, I'm 5-10 with 30" inseam.

Windstrom

I put some 1/2" rubber washers under the bottom of this shield with the shield in the lowest position, after I put my Corbin on, and it's great!! I can see over the top and I can use either my 1/2 helmet or my flip-up (even in the flipped-up position) and it's not a problem. I am the same size as LewStrom.

As a happy Givi screen owner, I'll put in my plug.

I've tried a CeeBailey's and the Givi and, of course, the stock shield. The Givi smooths out the turbulence the best (I'm 6'2"), looks sharpest and was in my price range.

I'd recommend it to anyone planning to ride the Strom for anything longer than 1-2 hour rides. In fact, I just got home from a 6500 mile trip around the western US. I didn't have problems at any speed (including some that weren't exactly legal...).

Good screen. I like it.

Let me add, though, that with more riding I found that it does have turbulence over 60 mph. When that first happened I thought it was just because of bizarre cross-winds, but it happens all the time.

Turbulance over 60 MPH

I have a Laminar Lip and once I get to around 60 MPH I begin to get more and more turbulance as well. Nothing as bad as the stock screen but definately noticable.

I must be a real novice; the wind buffeting on my new DL1000 seems rather "normal" for riding a motorcycle. I did 403 mile trip on the second Saturday after I got the bike, and the only fatigue that I experienced was not having the grip strength to turn a door knob with one hand the next morning. :lol:
