Seriously anyone with buffeting probs look beyond your screen and check mirror heights, even taking them out further takes away dirty air from beside your helmet, just not too far our or you will get the leverage buffeting through your bars.

As Craig points out sitting position etc can make a huge difference as well so there are many factors adding up one by one that can help.

Nope, I'm in the northern hemisphere and I'm 5'10" like you with no buffeting. Maybe we have smaller heads

Y'all are riding upside down; the air is smoother close to the ground. Even I knew that

I'm 5'-10" and deal with only a very slight amount of buffeting using the standard windshield, I always using a full face helmet (Arai Corsair V). The airflow is no issue, and I typically travel between around 60-80mph.

Dirt bike helmet use for local rides only...noisy!

The weather finally permitted a bit of a test run with my Aeroflow windscreen. I bought the medium (~6" higher than stock). I'm 6'3"; 215#; Edit: XL Arai XD4. I haven't been through all the variables yet but initial impression is good. I can tell you the head buffeting I was experiencing from the stock screen was, at times, disorienting and not what I wanted tooling along at 80 in traffic. With the Aeroflow, the head buffeting is nearly gone and I noticed the wind noise is greatly reduced as well. I notice there is a definite vacuum behind the screen that kinda pulls your head forward; gonna have to get used to that. I also notice more wind on my shoulders/chest but it feels balanced. At lower speeds, the sight line is a bit of a bother.
The unit mounted easily using the upper 4 windscreen screws and I was pleasantly suprised at how solid it was. The distortion is minimal but there seems to be a bit of milkiness to the transparency; not bad but there. I think it will be good for long hauls and I may get the side deflectors as well. I plan to cut down the stock screen for dirt work,etc. and will update if that combination works with the Aeroflow.

I'm also 6'3", ride in mx helmet all the time.With this screen I'm able to listen music from headphones even when I fly on highway. But on long days you have to use ear plugs anyway doesn't matter what bike you sit on.

Where do you get that screen?

Okay as I was a little bored traveling today I have been doing some experimenting. So one thing I found this that if I sit a little further back or hunch down in the seat I find that I experience some buffeting. So my view is that where I normally sit allows the dirty air to hit my chest and my is head is in clean air. So I am of the belief that for those experiencing buffeting you either need a shorter screen to deflect the airflow to your chest - or the likes of the Aeroflow to send all the air over your head.
