This thing works for me.

How tall are you and what seat height do you have?

Did it come with the rubber strip around the screen or did you add that yourself?

I added that. It came with the Powerbronze (metalmule) screen that I had on previously. Thought I'd give it a shot to see if it makes any difference. It may but I can't really tell.

cheers,
Mark

Thanks to all of you I am $800 more poor. I installed last night and was able to put a few miles on late this afternoon. I did install rubber washers since I could push down on the screen when everything was tight. Thanks for the heads up DP.

I think it works well but my XD3 visor is buzzing something fierce at highway speeds. It's annoying and becomes distracting. I tried all different screen positions and some were better than others but it was still there. If I just touched the visor on the helmet it stops. Does anybody else have this problem? Is there anyway to stiffen the visor? I was almost thinking a few layers of fiberglass would do the trick!

Wiz,
Thats the XD. On the 950 A is was unbearable. Yes, you can stiffin it with fiberglass.
Or do Like Indy and I did, get a Shoei Hornet. Way, way better.

Also, loctite those knurled adjuster nuts. On dirt roads they will vibrate loose and get lost.
Ask me how I know.

Try adding a small (1/2 oz.) weight to change the point of vibration frequency of the visor.

Thanks RV8. I've been digging and it seems poeple are adding tape wheel weights so I'm going to try that. I was at a local get together yesterday and there is was an Arai dealer selling stuff. I talked to him and he wasn't much help but then he mentioned trying the weights. If that doesn't work..........DP can buy me a Hornet. I did a quick spin last night with the shield in the lowest position and using my regular full face helmet. The air was clean. Nice and smooth. AAAAAaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh

This thread needs to go away. Far far away. At least until I get my tax return.

Yeah, I keep unsubscribing myself from it, only to return and ponder yet again . . .

Stupid/wishful thinking(?): Does Touratech do group buy pricing?

Waiting on a package from Woody today - I really can't justify this purchase right now. Then again, I said that about the bike last year.

Hey, I just rode home from my motorcycle club meeting. A little chill in the air I notice. Oh, no problem,
D3 shield up & foward. Rode home with my helmet shield up and no glasses on either. Geez I could hear every sound my bike makes now.
Sounds nice........

Then I sat on my floral print couch and fondled Woody goodness.
