Calsci

I've recently installed a California Scientific Medium Windshield on mine:

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

The medium is 20.5" height x 20" width vs
the stock: 17.5" height x 14" width.

(Click on each image below to see the full resolution picture if you want to check the details)

Here it is with the standard screen of the standard 1190 aligned on top of it.
There is a big 3" up top, but the width difference is much less since the windshield is much more curved.









The windshield comes with spacers, screws and cleaning cloth & liquid:




Here it is in top position mounted on my 1190 std:




When in top position, the handle protections come right under the cut. When the windshield is in the bottom position the handle guards hit against the windshield at full lock:




(Click on each image above to see the full size picture if you want to check the details)

Calsci has a sizing chart to determine which model you should buy:

I went with the Medium.

Thanks,

Hiya

I work in construction, and being next to anything from just a circular saw to a 40ton piling hammer requires hearing protection. I've always found the foam earplugs that are all that ever get supplied to be rubbish, maybe why my hearing isn't what it was :(

At a bike show I thought I would try custom moulded earplugs, and since no-one had ever looked in my ears before they revealed I have small ear canals, to the extent that they had to make their plugs a bit longer than normal to stay put.

Small ear canals means I've never been able to get the foam plugs to fit properly but I never realised. The instructions just say roll them up and push them in

The difference is vast. I now have a work pair and a pair with speakers in for music on the bike or on a plane. No batteries to go flat like on noise cancelling ones, and a lower volume needed on IPods etc too. Maybe £250 total and worth every penny. Your ears are always growing so maybe in a few years the moulded bit will need replacing, but I'll still be able to hear hopefully!

With these in it won't matter what screen I have, peace and quiet

THIS

once you've gone this route you'll never go back. I've been running this set up since I got my first pair at WSBK at laguna at a vendor booth in 2001. very quiet except for what you let in.

Perfection.

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...
Madstad is developing an install for the 1190 and it should be ready within a couple weeks.

I had one of these on the 800XC and it was the single best improvement to the bike.

Start at about 2:15 on the video below. The full effect is amazing.

They are a little fugly though.

Hi there - did this allready - gut the Tiny Shild down as far as possible. Also without it there is too much of vibrations.

I had the "Sunthingy" at the helmet removed - it's right now actually better with it. Put some tabe on it to reduce vibrations.

cheers

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?

As I wrote in my first post - I tried all these. Basicial my Shield is like duct tape ;- )

P.S: I am close to Paraguay now. Maybe Givi or Puig has a solution for me... But most likely they will not have this windshields in stock somewhere...

I contacted Givi and their Airflow windshield AF7703 will be available in 3 to 6 weeks from today (4/4/14). I had one on my 2009 GS and it was wonderful .

Here are a couple of ideas that might work. Both are windshield extensions. You would have to order both and figure out where to have them shipped.

Touratech - Windscreen Spoiler
http://www.touratech-usa.com/Store/3...90-Adventure-R

Saeng - They make three different products that can be mounted to your windscreen to help with buffeting

Good luck on your ride.

Awaiting for the consensus to emerge



I'm in the same boat. Need to find a solution. Had a CalSci on the 990. It was ok. Buddy has a Madstad on a Tiger 800XC he swears is the best add on. So I'm gonna stay tuned....

I went with the Medium.

Thanks,
GED2, have you had a chance to ride with the CalSci yet? How is the noise?

When i got my CalSci I was not impressed with the quality of the bottom cut out, so I called and the owner he told me that the computer program was having trouble cutting the bottom because it is more of an oval, so i rounded it on my belt sander now it looks fine. I had to modify my hand guards also because mine hit the screen because of my risers (Rox 2"). I do like the screen. Much less noise than the touring or stocker.
