I'm going to go with bar end mirrors to move them low and further out. I think you are right after playing with wind testing for the past several months. You can clearly feel the turbulence start right after the mirrors disrupt the air flow.It surprised me, but changing the mirrors made a big difference.
LOL, love it. If you could transplant that fairing/screen to a DL I would do it!
Let me know how the mirror trials go. I’m very interested in changing the OEM mirrors but not sure which ones to purchase.LOL, love it. If you could transplant that fairing/screen to a DL I would do it!
I rode my friends 2005 RT1200 and I was very impressed with the fairing and motorized screen.
DC regarding the Tuono mirrors are they a drop in for the V Strom I have a 2019 VStrom 1000 is there a specific diameter that is required - i know the mirrors are an issue I tested the bike without any earlier this summer!I wanted to add my $.02 to the discussion. I'm coming from a '07 DL650 that was fantastic on the highway - 800 mile days were easy and comfortable. The '18 DL1000? Not so much. Even after adding a Givi Airflow, the buffeting was almost making me ill. At 500 miles in a day, I'd had about all I could take. I'm 5'10 with a 34" inseam and sleeve length - Mr. average.
Well, I've added those $25/pr Tuono mirrors and 2" mirror extenders - the buffeting is much better. I'm also running the protaper high adventure bar un cut. I have the Givi Airflow mounted in the middle position on the brackets, and with the windscreen set at its lowest angle, and the Airflow blade position with 1" or so of track on the bottom showing under the adjusters, it's now comfortable. Not perfect, not quite as good as my memory of the '07 DL650, but comfortable.
I'll report back after my first 500 mile day.
I might fab up some of those vortex generators, as well. I want to get this thing ready for coast-to-coast!
They are drop in (I got them off Amazon for $25/pr) 10mm thread and 17mm wrench (although I used crescent wrench for a tighter grip).DC regarding the Tuono mirrors are they a drop in for the V Strom I have a 2019 VStrom 1000 is there a specific diameter that is required - i know the mirrors are an issue I tested the bike without any earlier this summer!
Also for everyone - I'm using a MadStad windshield and absolutely love it no buffeting but there's room for improvement I like DL's idea but would like something a little more discreate probably a winter project
