When I initially got my 09 V, being 6’-1” the stock screen just did not work for me.
Over the years I have tried a number of different screens and mounting positions
At all heights including mounted upside down
Givi Screen at all heights:
Best position was lowest. The highest position let too much air under the screen and created more turbulence / helmet noise @ speed.
Givi Screen mounted on Algard Screen brackets
The best position was at its lowest but with the top edge raked down and back. Lots of shelter for my body and clear air flow around helmet not much turbulence / helmet noise @ speed. – BUT when I wanted to add the Acerbis dual road handguards the steering lock was restricted. :151:
Givi and inverted stock
, mounted together in highest position on standard mounts:
Cuts the turbulence except at high Speed (+70mph) and gives good shelter.
I use this for winter / cold weather riding, if I can be bothered to change back to it.
I have not got a picture of this setup but it looks a bit like this (fills in the gap at the bottom), but without the Vario spoiler - May try that at a later date.
V-Stream on stock mounts:
Good but does create similar levels of turbulence / helmet noise as the Givi on its highest setting.
V-Stream on Algard screen mounts:
(Currently running this setup
Lower / raked back. Lots of shelter for my body and clear air flow around helmet no turbulence / helmet noise @ speed.
Good clearance to the handguards I have fitted. :002:
My 2d and quick resume of my trials & experiments. :006:
