So I had been waiting forever for a Givi D4114ST Windshield. I'd call Twisted Throttle and it was always, Givi is sending a shipment in, so I kept waiting - 58 days. This past Monday, I called in for the 3rd time and asked for an alternative.
They had a Madstad for only about CAD$150 where the Givi was priced at CAD$121.
The Madstad arrived today and on it went to my Gen3. It fit the stock brackets perfectly.
Went for a short ride (in the rain).
Highest position in height, smallest slant (most upright). MUCH quieter than stock. My head wasn't in the turbulence. I'm 5'10". Also, while my helmet and faceshield was collecting a bit of rain, I stayed almost completely dry.
After gassing up, I pulled the top of the shield back to give it the most slant. I didn't get to highway speed, so still some more testing to see if that is better or worse. It felt about the same.
If I ride to work tomorrow, its supposed to be pretty hot 27degC (81degF). I'll see how the low settings work.
I had a Madstad on my previous bike (Tiger 800 Roadie) and it was much harder to adjust since it had 4 separate hand knobs and could articulate in a bunch of different directions. The Versys unit may not have as much overall adjustment as the Tiger unit did, but moving it seems WAY easier.
