Sorry guys, disregard my post, I did another search and lots came up regarding the Rifle. Cheers, ronHello, I am a newbie here, having just purchased a 2011 1000 V-Strom. I have read a lot about the buffetting on the bikes prior to buying this bike. So far it does not seem to bad, however I am riding it to Calgary this weekend, so we will see.
I also own a 1981 Honda CBX, that with the stock shield, was absolutely brutal with turbulence. I decided to purchase a Rifle shield for it, and it is absolutely awesome, best, quietest windshield I have ever had.
I see the make a windshield system for the VEE that allows angle adjustment, as well as being larger. Has anyone here tried this system. Thanks in advance, Ron
Nice setup, where did you get those ears? They look like they would work quite well.Givi D255ST from Twisted Throttle, now >$100, is 24.5" high, about 8" taller than stock. Sets into the nose like the original, 2 screws.
I'm 5'4" and cut it down 3". The top edge is on a level with my smile so I can look over it to about 25" in front of my Vee. No buffeting.
Narrow coverage lower down, so I added Laminar Ears. Great coverage now.
