I will remove mirrors and see if that helps. Just didn't want to go buy another helmet, I love my XD3.
It doesn't shake my head or anything, its just the noise.

Just been discouraged reading other inmates threads. Seems nothing works well without spending lots of bucks, and still not fixxin problem. Shorty the best option? Aeroflow?

Guess I can get it solved at the KTM rally?
A new shield or helmet seems to be much easier than a new bike.

A friend cut a hole in the lower part of his windshield to reduce the backpressure issue that causes a lot of the buffeting.
