My solution to wind

I added some height to the KTM screen and ventilated my helmet peak. Works great up to about 120 KPH - after that all bets are off.
I'm 6'.

I'm considering that one for my Ginger. On road sections my helmet is really pushing up hard.
Windscreen definitely helps with the helmet lift. It is not a windshield though so don't expect any miracles. I really like the look though.

Looks excellent!

Haven't read everything here but thinking about to buy the 690. This fairing and windshield is from rally raid? I haven't found this on their website. Can someone post the direct links to it? :)

I have that/the oem windscreen by itself and it's great for the price. Puts wind right on my chest instead of on my stomach/abdomen area and is short enough that it doesn't get in the way when hitting the trails hard.

Wind deflector and GPS Mount

I made my own wind deflector to add to the KTM windscreen just to get a little more wind off the face. Still testing the height of the deflector. It's great at speeds over 120 km/h. Base also serves as a mount for my GPS and switches.
