windscreen review

Hello out there. A newbie owner. Has anyone installed the GIVI D405ST windscreen and is it worth the $.
Thanks
Dave

I like mine, but after taking the curve out at the top, mounting in low position, and angling windscreen bracket back 5 deg. I'm 5'10. Still, I'll take it off and run the stocker upside down when it warms back up.

I'm 6'2 and I still get some air hitting the top of my helmet with the Givi wind screen. It's not real bad but it could be better.

I'm 5'9", and have tried several windshields. The Givi worked best for me. I put it on the medium height, and added 1/4" rubber spacer washers under the bottom screws to angle it back a bit. I don't make any changes for temperature, I've tested for 30 to 95 F.

It's not like riding in a car (or a Goldwing) though.

Ther can be trade offs like helmet buffeting and noise increase.I have a ex-large Calsi touring screen,MRA touring screen plus my stocker screen.I prefer the stock because of the smooth air flow and little buffeting.When I take a trip in the cold I Like the Calsi,I'm willing to endure some helmet buffeting to stay warmer.The MRA touring looks good and gives more protection over stock,very little buffeting,but is louder.What does one want a windshield to do?Have a great day.

Ordered one a few days ago. Putting it on this weekend. I am expecting no problems with the Barkbuster storms already installed.
