did anyone get that micaspeak link to work? I'd like to read up on that but it appears gone
to the orig poster: the Givi is not too wide at all. its not wide, in fact. its the stock screen expanded a bit, same shape, same issues except less severe. The Givi is almost 22" tall, so in the tiptop position you're looking through it. In the tiptop position with it spaced to stand up straighter [less rake] it does OK, not great. better than stock, but not great.
I really think that the right fix, when it finally comes, is going to be quite wide at the bottom and meant to be set ALL THE WAY DOWN, very low at the bottom, which means it has to taper off and be narrow to the north. There has to be better integration at the bottom-most end, as some have discovered by re-drilling their stocker to fit even lower. i did an experiment by clamping a memphis shades WIDE cruiser windshield onto my givi. The Memphis is as wide at the bottom as at the top. Worked like a charm, til it shook loose from the clamps.
The Vario appears to be pretty broad at the bottom.... it might work but I doubt it.
If evolution is valid, why do I still bite my tongue occasionally?
