That kind of bothered me, too, when I first got the bike. Then, I rode it to California and, crossing Texas, I was doing 85 & 90 mph in a 25-30 mph head wind. The windscreen worked like a champ and I've experienced no issues.

How does the wind screen deflector work for you? Happy? Less noise and/or turbulence? And what are your dimensions? Thx!

Your the first I've heard of installing this. How was the installation and the fit with and without the side cases. Is the extra space worth the $$$.

I have not received it yet. Should be here next week.

I have the CJ designs toolbox on my KTM 990A in place of the exhaust can when I went with a 2 into1. I have come to like having tools in a dedicated location, readily available. Additionally, the tools will always be with the bike regardless if the panniers are on or not.

I will give a report/pics as soon as it lands and I get it installed.

I've put the Great Loop Handlebar bag - great to hold sunglasses and walet.
Touratech bar risers and big foot

My major project was putting a Pelican case on as a top box. I made a quick release mount that uses the tail rack as is. Its perfect size so my wife can get on and off the bike and has something behind her.

Wolfman Blackhawk bag.....holds 7l I believe. Very secure and fairly easy to remove at fill ups.

So I have had my bike for a couple a days now and riding.
I think I will go with a bags connection bag with the tank lock on the gas ring. Not sure which one will fit. I know the other thread mentions a "daypack". But the GSA is a little different on top the gas tank I think.
I am looking for an electrified bag with no straps.

Wonder if this will fit all of the tubular bag mounts or is just specific to the ADV? Please let me know after you get yours in place.

SW-Motech Stuff

So, I asked Kevin (twistedthrottle) if the SW-Motech cylinder guards would fit the GSAW (with its OEM crash bars). Here's Kevin's response:

I'll send up the bullshit flag on the EVO tank ring for the EVO bags. It does not fit. Unless they made a change in the last few weeks, the spacers are too tall and the bolts not long enough. Another inmate did his own re-engineering to make it fit, but out of the box it does not fit the GSA. If you try and mount the ring without the spacers, the top of the GSA tank ring is slightly curved so it will deform the EVO ring enough to where the bag will not mount. Been there done that.

This is exactly i was looking for. No point in reinventing the wheel.
I wish they would re-engineer the mounts and make it work.
