Hey Rhino, where'd you order yours from? I can't seem to find it listed in Canada... Thanks!
this thread is for dl 1000 2014..Hello All. I have recently bought a 2008 V-Strom 650a. The bike came with a Madstad bracket and Suzuki touring shield. I am 6 foot and have the stock seat but sit on an inch and a half high pad. The set-up that came with the bike didn't eliminate buffeting and after a weekend of tooling around I had a sore neck. I have since purchased a Windtsrom Super Tall windscreen and the buffeting is gone. There is still a lot of wind on my torso but that comes from the shape of the tank. Of course I don't have to tell DL650 owners that. Just wanted to say that the Windstrom eliminated the buffeting for me. The plastic is thickest of any windscreen I have ever seen.
You can order it here.Hey Rhino, where'd you order yours from? I can't seem to find it listed in Canada... Thanks!
Well, finally spent 90 min on a test ride of the new DL1000 today and was floored by the high-frequency buffeting of the stock screen. I literally couldn't read road signs my head was shaking so bad!!
Admittedly, the helmet I wore is an unknown (cheaper) one but I never noticed anything like this with other bikes. I'd rather take the screen off altogether than ride with this.
Is there a reasonably certain fix for this.....I wouldn't like a large screen distorting the view.
:thumbup:I admire people who have the skills and patience to build their own stuff when they are unable to find it on the market ! Congrats !I finally got a chance to give the home made windshield a good highway test. All the way up to 75+ it is pretty much buffet free. The wind goes well over my head at any speed. It would probably do a little better in crosswinds if I had made it just a little wider, but it is still really good. Took a 100 mile loop through all kinds of roads from city streets to freeway. Averaged 55 MPG!
