I've used what you call a "visor" on two different screens on a BMW R1200ST.

On the stock (short) screen it cuts way down on buffeting.

On the taller Ztecnic screen I have it totally eliminates buffeting to the point where I can use my Shoei Hornet with the face shield up and the peak installed at 100mph. The only time I put the face shield down is in heavy rain or cold. It may look ugly but on the last big trip (6,500 miles), it was a Godsend.

That is interesting, because I feel the exact opposite. To me anyway I thing the lip redirects the air making a much larger bubble for the ridder to sit in. My last bike was a V-Strom 1000. The standard wind screens on those were straight. Most people had buffeting with those. I rode with the Suzuki touring screen which had a three or four inch lip as opposed to the KTM 1 inch lip. For me, I never felt any buffeting, 6 feet tall. But I understand everyone's different. I recently switch my 1190R to the standard windscreen because it's been so dang cold. I was hoping to block a bit more wind. Pretty sure I'll switch back to the R smoke colored screen when it warms up.

Did some experimenting with the screen on my R yesterday. I'm 6'2" and it seems to work best all the way up and all the way forward. I don't really get enough wind to feel it, but the wind noise is slightly higher than if I stand up and get my helmet in clean air. It's not a huge difference so I think I will just live with it. However slumping down a couple inches quiets it down a lot. I think if you are under 6' it should be fine?

That's interesting. How tall are you?

I also find the best for me on the Adv, is stock screen all the way up and forward in the curve, plus MRA spoiler on top set to almost parallel with the screen. I'm 5' 11".

Tire Pressure settings

Does anyone perhaps know how to set the default Tire pressures.

Mine was set to 2.2 bar front and 2.8 bar rear.

On gravel i like to use lower pressures. So I went to 1.8 and 2.2 but now the Alarm is on the whole time. It is quite annoying.

Maybe i missed it in the owners manual.

My personal preference is to set the TPMS to psi instead of bar.
Most people dont talk in bar language as far as that goes.
But if they did they would be incoherent coz they are pissed.. .

You must have a 2013, think there is a software upgrade that will show actual PSI below those numbers. I run 33/37 unless 2up, no alarm and shows correct pressure, until a few miles then they both warm up and go up higher, like maybe 4psi each.
