Aerodynamic windshield trim?

Hi All:
I read in one of the forums about this trim you can put on your windshield that helps with airflow, but I can't for the life of me remember the name. I've tried searches, but no joy. Does anyone know what this stuff is called? Inquiring minds want to know. Thanks.

Are you refering to the laminar lip. I've seen several versions of these. There's lots of comments on them here. Use the search button and you'll be busy for days.

Plastic trim

Do you mean the guy that clamped the plastic spine from a "spiral" notebook across the top of his screen to break up the air? I saw that on one of the v-strom boards.

Saeng edging? It's a black trim, almost like car door weatherstrip.

The grass may look greener, but there is probably more POOP in it!

BINGO! Microswirl was the name. Was recommended by one of the guys in the Star riders club. I'll check it out. Thanks.

Forget the extra screen lips and all. Check out Madstad's replacement windscreen hardware. It works for me.
