You know what I mean bucko . Hell, I've already got a taller seat, lower pegs, bar risers, and Pastrana FX bars....gotta have a taller screen.

My past experience with after market screens has been less than positive. I simply won't spend money on a screen that's designed to be mounted in only a single fixed position. So, I'll continue to work on my own version of Tobinators with my old GiVi windscreen.

Fairing destruction is not my idea of agood time....

The adjustibility would be quite nice, however I have no complaints about the effectivenss of my set up.

I do agree with you that it would be a nice feature if it was easy on/easy off.

Sheeet, did I pay that much? I do not remember, but for some reason I thought it was under a bill...

FWIW, having had experience with this mod, I would probably give $150 for it if CB did a slick job of it (hell, I may have given that for my hackjob apparently).

I think it is a worthy mod. It does its job, I do not even notice it is there till someone asks me about it, and I forgot the cost - these things point to a worhtwhile mod in my book

But that's exactly my point. It's YOUR set-up. Works great for you and that's also great. If it works for others, to them too!

But how tall are you? What kind of helmet do you wear? How high is your seat? What other bits/parts are there to affect the wind?

I don't actually expect details, just making my point....

The more long road trips I make, the more I want/need something better. I'm happy as a clam up to about 60-65mph. After that, the aero properties just seem to break down.

So I have this old screen off my GPz1100 collecting dust and it's 'almost' the right size and bend. It already has the SAENG winglet mounts so I figure I'll just play around with that and see if I can make it work. I've managed to bend the screen a bit more so it matches the curve of the OE screen. Now I'm tring to create an adjustable mounting system. Work is slow as it's not that high on my priority list of things to get done, but it'll happen some day.

I see what you mean completely, but at the same time you may be over engineering it a bit? Put it on, see how it works - add a spacer or two if needed IMO.

As I read your post I started to get ideas as to how to fab a adjustable bracket for my shield, then I thought why? If I want to redirect the air, I can adjust angle using the existing spacers - simple...

BTW, the odd angls and form of the f650 shield seem to assist in eliminating the turbulance som mant complain about with other shields as it allows air up and under too.

Of course I am the guy who thinks function comes BEFORE (fixed, thanks MP ) form too though...

Yep, it was me.

This is the fairing as it arrived, totally untrimmed.



Trimmed it down to this, as you can see it's the same as above but I trimmed down the width of it and added the air duct to try to stop buffeting.



Still getting far too much wind noise and, following experements with and without the air duct and with/without an airbox behind the duct to channel the air up I gave up on the duct and blocked it off. Also trimmed some more hight off the screen.



Even with the further reduced hight I still have more wind noise and buffeting than with the stock screen so I will have to try some more variations. Suffice to say that bigger and higher isn't always going to result in quieter and less wind. I'm happy with the "Rallye" look of the fairing but it hasn't turned the Adventure into any more of an Iron Butt tourer than it was

Not to poke at you KTiM... but the more you trim it, the more it looks like the stock shape to me.
