GIVI D4114ST Windscreen

Can anyone who has one of the subject windscreens please let me know what it measures from the center of the adjustment knob to the top of the screen? Some photos make it appear terribly tall to me and others not so much. I know it can be cut down, but any significant cutting will remove the curve or flip at the top & likely reduce the air deflection.

Mine is 16" from the center (adjustment knobs) to the top. I believe I bought the "tall" one. I'm 5'9" and with the shield all the way down I can just see over the top. Perfect height as long as I remain erect (good posture). In the rain it might work better half way up.

Thanks Duffy. I'm only aware of one height being available. If anybody knows of others - please chime in.

Just putting my GIVI 4114 on; It's 14 7/8" from hole to top. It's 5 7/8" higher than stock. Also stock max width is 17", this one is 19". I'm 6"0", still to determine correct adjustment for me.

Thanks. Please report back your feelings on how much, if any, you feel it's an improvement over stock. My only reason for changing is noise. No matter what I do, the stocker is more noisy than nothing. Photos would be great if it's not too much trouble.

Here's a bunch of photos. I have it on the lowest setting, and can see over it easily (I'm 6'0"). I was only able to ride a few miles before rain was threatening and I won't have time to go out for a few days to give it a real workout, but the difference was HUGE. Much better wind protection and noise reduction at the slow street speeds. I actually rode around for a few blocks with just my baseball cap which stayed put and I could hardly feel any wind on the top of my head. Very encouraging so far!

Well made windshield, easy to install, and clearer optically than the stock one.

I think I wish I had bought a GIVI, but I bought a PUIG. It is good protection to the chest and face area, but over 60 mph there is a lot of wind buffing to the top of the helmet. Even more then the stock 2015 windshield. I have it all the way up and can see just over the top. I am going to put in a couple of spacers to give it a little less angle and see if that will help. I am 5'9".

Took the bike out today for a 60 mile road test of the GIVI 4114ST. For the most part, I left the screen in the lowest position as I really like looking over the windshield. The noise issue for me goes away almost completely. I could leave my helmet shield up and actually enjoy the sound of my humming twin. Very little buffeting, absolutely no air blast on my torso. What little buffeting you get is probably coming around the sides, not the top. For my freeway portion of my test, I raised the shield half way up. The difference is noticeable, but not dramatic. You can probably ride all day at 75 plus without getting exhausted from the noise and buffeting from the stock windshield. If I was going to do lots of interstate riding I would probably leave it half way up; you will be looking through the shield but it's very good optically.

I'm very happy with the GIVI, and it's a bargain at $117.
