And because it's available. We'll need a ride report and your physical stats.

I would love to find someone to duplicate the Hyde Racing screen I have. I wish I knew why they quit making them. It looks and works great.

just some info

I ran across the following web page as I was pondering various solutions to my turbulence problem:

http://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/Fairing.html

Some great info on what causes turbulence, how to cut and finish plastic, proper windshield height, cleaning solutions, repairing scratches, etc.

I will be giving the NACA ducts a shot to see what that does for me.

Cheers,
Lance

I think that coming from a cb550 cafe bike has affected my ability to comment in these sort of threads. Ha.

Question windscreen fun

After riding for over 50 years I've come to realize that the visor/peak serves a very valuable purpose, that is to block low angle sun, I currently ride through the mountains early in the morning daily, finding the visor of extreme value and of safety when it comes to visibility, every time I ride the same route on my road bike and with a road type helmet, I can't see the road clearly when the sun is in my eyes.....those folks who quote "Or do some people just prefer the looks and pose value of the 'off-road' style MX lid, over practical considerations like wind noise??" need to realize that the visor serves a distinct purpose!
As far as wind nose, I prefer the use of molded ear plugs, like those having music abilities like those made by "Ear Fuze" (cheap), nice jazz music and very little wind noise..I also use a windshied extension made by Touratech, used at over 100mph, no issues!
But regardless, a visor is going to create turbulence and the visor is hell is harsh side winds, I had to take it off at times..so that my two cents worth! p.s. excuse my hurried message..

From what I understand, NACA ducts are designed to be installed parallel with the airstream. Like, on the top of a wing, or the side of a fuselage. Places where it would bring in air without creating drag. Installation on a surface that is facing directly into the airflow isn't the application it was designed for.

Here's the Wiki on it.

I agree

MT,
Thanks for the link. I agree that the NACA ducts are not functioning exactly as designed in this application. However, I think it does equalize the pressure (to some degree) and provide some form of laminar flow up the back of the screen to merge with the air coming off the front to reduce the turbulence somewhat. Plus I think it looks kind'a cool. I figure if it doesn't work, no harm, no foul. Can't get worse! Famous last words, I know...

Cheers,
Lance

carbon screen extender

I've just made an extension in carbon (or orange etc) for the 640 Adv--but its based on a 990 Adv screen. I did do a "dry fit" on a 990 but my mate reckoned it could be a problem as isn't see through--but looking at this thread there doesn't seem to be an issue ?. With 3M type dual lock it can be altered in height to suit (with masking tape and road trialled ) before you fix the final position. With the 3M spacing there will be an air sheet--and I've used the shape change as a feature to promote a bit more air ingress (although the gap is more pronounced on the 640). It makes my 640 at least 10 mph faster due to comfort!--but screens are very subjective so its what works for you. I'm happy to make a few for you to try--as I have put all the hard work into the mould. However , its a hobby and I will have to make to order (I do the tank guards for the 640 so people have seen my work).

Price will be 59 GBP (BUT with a heavy discount to the first one or two takers as they will be giving the verdict!) , and please contact me at chrisbarnes1@yahoo.com if you have questions /interest.

here's the link--I'm at the bottom of page 2

Regards, Chris

ps I've added a couple of pics here and will try to do a "dry fit" for phots on a 990 and add it so that you can see --UPDATE, UPDATE --phots added--and of course you can "mess" with this with care and a dremel type tool.

This is true.
However they do make a difference, so does a few holes..who cares if thats not the specific use of the duct??. I like the duct so that a bunch of rain does not come threw the screen.I also think it looks cool.
