I am getting ready to chop that windscreen. I am chopping it at the point where the widest point tapers back into the screen. Will try to round it. The way it sits I have butt loads of turbulence, and a bunch of noise. I can't drop the screen any because of the way I have my Rox Risers. The are situated straight up, not pulled back like most folks. As you can see from the picture I am a big guy.

For the winter I will put on a GSA screen that I have.

Torbinators!! I have them and love them!! You may need a bit taller screen but they will help a ton!

I was not satisfied until I got an Aeroflow for my R1200GS. I now have a "cone of silence." I'm about an inch and a half shorter than you, but I ride with my seat in the high position.

The bike: R1200GS, Givi DT330 screen, ADV winglets, ADV beak extension (OEM). No tank bars or spotlights (yet). Seat in the lowest setting, no bar risers, OEM handguards.

No buffeting, markedly reduced wind noise, a lot less wind pressure but still some airflow. Good stuff
+1 here. I'm a believer too. Just installed a Givi D330ST last night on my '05 12GS, rode into work today.

50 miles of mostly highway, took it up to about 80 and only then did I feel any turbulence. Could even ride with the shield up in the '60's. I haven't fiddled with the angle at all (it's 1 click above the lowest setting), so that may take care of it at 80+ (or maybe I should just slow down)?

I have the winglets on order, so those should only make the experience better.

The barn door parabellum is going back ... problem solved.

6', 30" inseam, seat on upper setting, all stock.

I ended up fitting a GSA screen and a spoiler to my stock R1150 GS. It was the best out there.

But in the winter it would be cold and very wet when raining so don't know yet if I keep it like this or put the original back on.
Similar experience! IMHO, After using the Flowjet (great looking piece) on a 200+ mile day of freeway, backroads etc., I decided, "with out a doubt" to go back to the stock screen. This was due to increased buffeting I had with the Flowjet while going around various trucks / cars on the freeway (I could only imagine how bad it could get with a good headwind). Anyway, I think the Flowjet would/might be better for offroad use/no freeways or highspeed work.

Couldn't disagree more. I guess it depends on several things such as your height, type helmet you wear, angle of the shield etc.



This pic was taken about halfway through a 6,500 mile trip through the Canadian Rockies from North Carolina. I've used the flowJet for about 5 years now, just replacing it with the stock screen during the Winter as it keeps more wind off my chest. The FlowJet (for me) causes much less buffeting and thus a quieter ride than the stock screen and is much cooler in the Summer.

The trip to the Rockies was a mixture of Interstate and back roads, doing several 800 mile days and one day across Montana on Rt. 2 where speeds rarely dropped below 90 MPH. I love it...plus it looks good on the GS IMHO.

Well, there you have it! Like you said, it could be seat height, helmet or both.

Enjoy the ride and the Flowjet!!!!!

Kind Regards;

Givi

Just my 2 cents--I recently put the new Givi AF330 on my 2010 GS and it is truly amazing. I also have an RT and the GS is now 95% as good as the RT on wind protection (upper body, anyway). I never expected to get this quiet a ride on my new GS. I can raise my face shield at 70 and the air is calm. Its a winner!

FYI, I am 6'0" with 31" inseam. The shield works well regardless of where I set the height! I esp. like the cost savings vs. the Aeroflow, which I was THIS close to ordering.

Are you using it with or without winglets?
