I used the hacked down taped up stock short screen for years because I ride the 950 extreme off road and a stock tall screen is very scary at 90mph on a desert road when encountering a panic G-out, or when doing a hill climb, riding the 950 in sand also requires getting way forward

I am working on a larger version but I would not want to make the top part in all carbon. It would be clear Lexan because safety is a big concern of mine I dont think it should restrict view
I did a lot of testing and found that wider is what works better than taller for protection from the wind
a dilemma I have for a taller design is that
I also believe that tall is excellent for on hiway but for off road should be able to be folded down out the way for off road safety, and that effects the "pretty factor", which seems to be what most people want . Personally my priority is OFF ROAD function and safety
I just believe the 950 is designed for 50% off road and it belongs off road so I just cant bring myself to design something for on road for this machine, its hard enough for me to strive for pretty
Im also sad that KTM cancelled the 950 SE and is moving more towards the street

Is there anyone out there 6'4" or taller who is currently using this beautiful piece of art? I'd like to know how well it works at speed: i.e. 80mph (flow of traffic when I'm the freeway).

I've got the $ burning a hole in my pocket, but I'd like some assurance that, besides looking phenomenal, it will smooth the air flow around my head. Sorry if this question has been asked already in other threads.

BTW - as a fluke I tried the "Super-Visor". Granted it looks a little hokey, but it has quieted the wind noise down on my street helmet to almost nothing with ear plugs and considerably reduced helmet buffeting with the stock windscreen.

I'm 6'3" and on a tall renazco seat and have clean full air flow on my upper body and head. It's nice in good weather but when its cold out I really feel it.

Any users 6 foot tall? I am very interested in this screen as the buffeting is really the only thing I don't like about my bike.
