I know there is already an entire encyclopedia on windscreens for our bikes, but I hope someone may be able to give the us the clif notes. I’m 5’7” with about a 30” inseam, I have a Sargent seat, and I ride a 2014 650. I’ve been looking at the Madstad system specifically. I live in the central area of NC, so I’ll have hot summers (is that cutout on the CalSci a good thing?), but I like to ride in the winter too.

EasyRider did you ever get that Parabellum windshield? If so, how is it working for you?
Im probably late to this, but I did in fact go with the Parabellum. I purchased the large one and mounted it in the lowest setting. I tried all 3 and the lowest was the best for me. It actually increased the buffeting effect around my helmet over the stock windshield. I opted to install the XCreed visor and all is good now.

It's been an untypical year for me as far as riding so the wife has not had an opportunity to test the new windshield setup. However, I rode approximately 2k miles to, around, and from the Appalachian mountains with the new setup and it is fantastic.

The mirrors are fine around my Barkbusters. The left hand mirror does contact the windshield when I have the steering turned full lock to the right. I could avoid it by repositioning the mirror extender, but I have not done so. I like where the mirrors are and it really hasn't been a problem for me.

This is a half serious/half shit-post.

I am a new 2012 DL650 owner, but no stranger to trying to tackle buffeting after owning a 2006 R1200GS several years ago. (I eventually solved that with a stock screen + winglets + a spoiler/deflector + screen brace + a lot of time.)

I was drunk on bourbon late one night and purchased some cheap plastic "wings" from eBay a few weeks ago. I mostly forgot about them until they arrived today. Since then I have added an Airflow, AdventureTech mirror extenders and a Scuberth C3 with some improvement. I am still playing around with those.

So if you were going to stick these on your fairing, where would you put them first? I doubt these will fix anything, but I am secretly hoping bourbon will solve my buffeting issues. Please don't make too much fun of me! 🤪

late reply, but madstad and givi airflow seem to be the most common choices.

I will put in my $.02 worth. I just installed the Givi airflow and it is so much better than stock. I have it at its highest and it works well for me. I’m 6’6”, with a 36 inch inseam. There is still some wind around, but the hard buffeting and deafening sound is gone. I am pleased.

Glad to hear that it works for you. Below is the link to the wind deflectors you saw on my bike last weekend. I don’t know if he still sells them.
