I think you will find that no matter what you decide to do, you are still going to have buffeting. Some options improve it, but none seem to eliminate it entirely. I've been pretty happy with my RADE screen, but I wouldn't call it the full answer. It does look bad ass on the bike in full carbon fiber though.

aeroflow makes tarmac tolerable.

Start here at the 'Windscreen Disgust' thread.

Good luck

My endorsement is for the Britannia Composites Voodoo. I'm 6'4" and use 2" handlebar risers.

Take the peak off, I have Arai xd ...when I removed it it helped a a lot...I also had the factory tall screen on before and it had unbearable buffeting...like I said before it eliminated the buffeting...unless your driving behind or beside a big truck or high winds...it's important that you get the proper height Aeroflow wind screen...I'm 6 ft...I got the medium size...top of screen hits me at the bottom of my nose...just enough to see over it down the road...at 75 to 100 mph I just scoot forward on the seat a little and get helmet a little lower behind the screen and it still works well....even at high speed I don't get that horrible ear pounding sound...if you want complete wind protection you going to have to get a Goldwing....

Cut 3" off the stocker.

Done.



I've never understood how a taller windscreen can be used off road. I'd be banging my face against the edge of it it.

over the bsrs and thru the scrren

Glad this thread is here. I just flung myself right thru my windscreen on my way to work. No worse for it but I can't say the same for the screen. I now know that they breakaway. Was thinking I should have cut it down long ago. One great observation was that with no screen I have plenty of clean air. No head bobble at all. Now it is decision time. Go with the moose OR try a rally type. I ride alot of off road. Sandy rocky stuff. Its arizona what can I say. How is rain protection on the cut down versions?

I have used the stock, KTM Touring screen, Moose shorty, and now the Rade Garage screen. The Rade screen is by far the best of these screens.

The Aeroflow screen looks awful but I have heard it works well..

Moose shorty caused all the wind to hit my shoulders and face. It may sound funny but I was always tired after riding with that screen

Touring screen was great but too tall for off road. I would hit it every once in awhile.

Stockers just sucked

Rade has reduced bobble head a lot. Still get a little with the visor on but if I take the visor off my Soumy Turing helmet I have virtualy zero bobble head.
