The best travel Windshield for the 1190 Adventure R

Hi there,

since almost 20000 Kilometres I am riding my 1190 around the world. (www.freiheitenwelt.de)

And since 20000 Kilometres I am trying to find a prober solution for the windshield. I had all original ones. Short, Standard, Touring. I shortened the short one. Then I extended the short one with another one. Right now I extended the Touring with a tiny peace by round about 5 centimetres.

And still - these wind vibrations on my Arai-X4 drive me nuts. I already got a tinnitus on both ears and can't ride without earplugs anymore.


Right now I am back on just the Touring shield. Till 80km/h it's still all right. But everything faster then 100km/h causes enormous vibrations.
Higher speeds are insane loud and all this is with earplugs and now wind... ;-(


I got a TT comfort seat, ads +3 centimetre, and I am 1,83 Meters TALL...

So here the question. Has anyone with the more or less body size, helmet and seat found a solution for this?

Since the plan is to travel for at least another 3 years this has become a serious topic to me. If I can't find a solution to this I can't continue my travels like I planned.... Travelling is nice - but I need my ears for some longer time...

Maybe this was discussed before somewhere - sry for the extra thread then...

Greetings Martin


All tips higly welcome...

Hey Martin, i'm going to build a rally screen! But this will need more time! But have you tried to go without any screen? Looks like shit but it's quite noiseless! I am 1,88m !

I'm having the same problem and believe the only solution may be to just cut down the shield until the air flow is clean. Much of the turbulence is going around the sides of the tall narrow windscreen so not sure much can be done other than lower the whole windscreen.

Sorry I can't help
but this thread may have saved me a LOT of money

the wind noise is my biggest problem on my 990 Adv

actually entertained trading for a 1190 to help this out
some have given the impression that the 1190 was bliss ?

I have cut the stock 990 screen down to only 3" above dash
and that has been the best for buffeting BUT gives NO wind protection.

I am 10 cm (4") taller than you and have the std shield. Laminar Lip.com is a USA
company on line. They don't have one yet, but I took my 950 one, lip, and made it fit.
I am awaiting all the aftermarket types to come up with something. Until then
this is working as it pushes the wind through a venturi affect and it goes up over
my helmet. Sometimes a second smaller over shield does the same thing.
You may need to find one and adjust up and down to find the correct spot for you.
Use duct tape temporarily to find that spot before permanently mounting it. Hope
this makes sense?
Allen.

I just mounted the CalSci screen and the touratech folding mirrors and the noise is much improved over the standard and the touring screens. The 1190 with the std screen is still way better than the 950 screen ever was and even the CeeBailey ones on the 950 the problem was the buffeting don't have much of a problem with that just the noise.

Somebody was posting that Puig touring screen was effective. I've just about given up on trying to get adventure bikes to not wreck my hearing.

I'm 6' 00" with the 1190R. I use the stock windscreen and have very little buffeting with an Arai XD4. Very happy with it. With ear plugs its great.
I test rode the 1190 STD and hated the windscreen on that.

It is one sweet motorbike; I find myself standing on the pegs in clean air just to feel that magnificent engine without my head shaking.

Try this....these guys know what they are doing. If you do not like it send it back for a full refund.

I ordered a 16" bronze tinted one.....I had one on another bike and it was very effective.

More Options

Two more variables to play with:

- hearing protection - I've tried different foam ear plugs. Some are much more effective than others. Theses should be easy to find an inexpensive to try. They made more difference for me than anything else.

- helmets- my Arai X3 had very different acoustics than the road oriented ones. If possible, consider trying different one(s).

Sorry you are having such problems! I have tinnitus myself and have been through the same search for the right combinations.

Aero flow windscreen worked well on my GS.

I have one of these on order. It looks like the same style of design used by Madstad (which isn't making one for the 1190 yet). I was very, very happy with the madstad windshield I bought for my Tiger 800XC.

http://www.calsci.com/motorcycleinfo/KTM1190prod.html

I also bought a set of Bose noise canceling headphones, and the difference is absolutely amazing. There are expensive, but I think they are worth every penny - quiet bliss.

I also found that loosening the bolts on the visor of my XD4 and retightening them with the visor in the highest possible position made a huge difference.
