Alternatives to touratechs clip-on windscreen

I really enjoy the touratech clip on windscreen spoiler thing, but I dont like how it makes my whole windscreen shake and the ENORMOUS overly engineered mounting that blocks your view.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a clip-on windscreen spoiler that has less weight and better visibility, or maybe even a tad taller?

I fabricated my own laminar lip and attached it with Meccano which I commandeered from my kid. :)

I have a Puig spoiler that works great. It come with the clip on brackets or you can get the parts to bolt it on to the screen, thats what I did.

Cut and bent some plexiglass I had laying around, velcroed it on. Height can be adjusted by peeling and sticking back on where I want it. Cost=$0, works great, does not block my view with clunky hardware. Doesn't look "slick" but I do not care at all about that. Some said it would fly off, but so far up to 75mph it has not budged. I suppose if a large bird hits it, it might; I will take my chances. I tried to get a pic of it but can't get anything good with my phone cam.

Hi Doug, I purchased the 2015 model and now in the process of compiling a list of farkles. I noticed you have the lower engine guard. Can you school me on the benefits of this add on? thanks Joe

Doug, that Puig spoiler looks pretty nice. They make three sizes. Is yours the S, M, or L version?

This looks good

Saw it on some other ADV thread I think

http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/m...-spoiler-blade

Anyone have experience with this?

Puig Spoiler with high screen gives me almost still air and very minimal buffeting.

The MRA spoiler and the Puig do the same thing but the Puig comes in three sizes mine is the middle size. The lower engine guard is the skid plate. This just protects the bottom of the engine and the exhaust pipe from being damaged when riding off-road. This skid plate from Black Dog Cycle Works also includes a kick stand relocation kit. If you look at the kick stand and how it is mounted to engine bosses you can see if it were ever to contact something it could crack the engine case, again if you are not going to go off road and use this as a street bike then it's not as important.

Laminar Lip

Here's the Laminar Lip on my 1190.

It reduced buffeting significantly over the stock windscreen.

Also just got the smoked version of the taller KTM power parts touring windscreen to try on the next ride.
