Aeroflow on a 990A

I put the tall Aeroflow on my 990A. Works great. No buffeting, but a little too tall for me (6', 34" inseam) so I drilled some holes higher on the screen to lower it 2 inches. Now, I look over it. Still gets air over me.

I'm also using Aeroflow Screen and Aerogards

I have a medium screen and optional aerogards on my '05 950 Adventure S. I bought it for an upcoming long trip but like it so much I have left it on since initial install for the last month of local riding.

Will the med Aeroflow work over a KTM Touring windshield??

Or do I have to find a stock windshield and then buy the Aeroflow???

No I tried. The tour screen "Alien" will not fit with the Aeroscreen.

That's the large moved down. So, the med would probably have fit me perfect. Hindsite.

Thanks- I'm 5' 11" and think I'll get a medium. (I still think their 3 sized pricing is silly)

how did this work for you . . .

Hondo - how did you go with the medium Aeroflow aeroscreen? is it the right height for you - reduces the buffeting but still able to see over it?

At 5'10" I am tossing up between the medium and the low (standard) - I am very undecided on which height to get, so any advice appreciated.

I'd go with the low; I'm 6'3 and when riding two-up I'm looking through the screen of the medium. When riding solo, it's borderline; I'll prolly wind up shaving off an inch or so. I'm liking my stock screen more and more now that I took off 2" and added a stiffener to the bill of my xd-4. It is definitely much quieter behind the Aeroflow though. Something else to try is mounting the Aeroflow on the lower screws to see how that works. I'm not sure I'd leave it that way; you have to spread it a bit to fit, so its putting stress on the screws.

Thanks Maoule, most of my distance riding is at around 80km/hr (50mph) on dirt roads with some highway riding at 110km/hr (70mph) to get there. I definitely need to reduce the head buffeting but don't want to have my view impeded too much. One option I thought of was (as the OP) to get a medium and drill some lower holes. But if you are at 6'3" and looking through the medium, me at 5'10" will be completely hidden behind it!

Hit me right in the eyeballs with the standard height screen. I'm 6'1.

Sale pending but there's a few pics of it mounted in the ad

travelsomewhere - how tall are you? and you have done the line of sight measurement over the stock screen (as per Aeroscreens advice).

I am struggling to figure out what size to go for at 5'10". Aeroflow recommend the medium but my heart screams the standard (low, at 4" above stock) to keep my dirt road visibility.

I would happily settle for a 50%+ reduction in buffeting and keep my line of sight.
