Which rear rack to you have, and is that a Moose-Racing wind screen? Does that short screen help with the buffeting? If it is a Moose, I've heard that fitment is a problem... is that true?

I have a moose screen. It does fit like garbage. Seemed to help with buffetting, but gets old on long trips or days there is a crosswind. If you are ever in Eastern Oregon I will give it to you for the low low every day price of free, installation included! lol, I put my stock one back on.

Rear rack is tourtech. Screen is Moose. As mentioned the fit was less than great. The stock screen has a bridge piece under the light, this doesn't and flares a bit. Not thrilled with the looks or quality, but it's eliminated the buffeting basically because it enables all air past so it's like riding screen less. Might give the rally raid a shot.

I read somewhere that the aeroflow screen fitted over the short moose screen works very good, they are not cheap but might be worth a try. I am using the moose shortie same as yours & agree 100% with your comments about it.

haha - not unless someone borrowed it without my knowledge. But I have done my best to make it look the way I wanted it to. It's why I love this bike - no two are the same. Each one takes on the personality of it's owner. Can't really say the same of GS's.

Beautiful silver beastie, but why the low and high fenders together?
