Sorry, my bike is an 09 and my screen is the 405. As for the question regarding noise or buffettiing, it is not noise. The stock screen is noisy but there is zero buffeting. The givi is like a light, soft hammer hitting me in the head hundreds of times per second. Thus the blurred vision I spoke of. I may have to go with the stock screen and get some good ear plugs. My concern is I like lto listen to music with my Scala G4. Does anyone do this with ear plugs and, if so, what were the results?
Must admit, the twists and turns that some threads take! No offense intended! this is sometimes the way we learn, but it can be a very round a bout
So... there's really nothing wrong with the stock shield, if you wear ear plugs? Let's assume that's correct, as it appears to be what's been said...
first, you should always be wearing ear plugs! Yes, you really should. A full face helmet will always produce enough wind noise that over time, you'll lose your hearing. For those that don't know, when you lose your hearing, it doesn't "come back later". When it's gone, it's gone.
secone, yes, it's a problem (dilemma) that's faced motorcyclists all along... How to hear music (etc) while still having ear protection? Not a new question! there are many many threads on the subject in probably every motorcycle forum that exists! the answer isn't a different windscreen
I've found the best results for me are the S-PLUG
. They have both superior noise reduction capability (as good as my 32 db Hear-o's) even with the music off! These plugs are made to actually go completely in your ear, and the way you pull them out is by the wire. Yes the wire is that strong and it's intended to work that way. They won't hang up on the lining of helmet when putting the helmet on and off.
But... you'll get a million answers on what in-ear speakers are best, which ever anyone is using currently
But that's a far cry from spending hundreds and hundreds on many many many different shields when the stock would do and all you need are in-ear speakers that work for you
