Stock VS Givi Windscreen (on 2016) Size Comp

I'm not sure if anyone has posted this but here is a size comparison of the stock vs the GIVI D4105ST (sorry for the totally messy garage )

I installed a Givi D4114ST on my 15' in place of the OEM and it works great. In the down position it's about 1/2" too tall. I can live with it.

You can always cut the 1/2" off.

I was torn between that one, the Puig and the one I got. Ultimately I figured they would all be better than stock. So far I am happy, at lowest setting the air graces the tip top of my helmet (I'm 6'3" or 190cm) and at medium I am pretty much in the clear. At all but the highest setting I am looking over the top unless I'm looking at the road up front.

I thought of that......but this shield has a "flip" at the top and I wouldn't want to remove any of that.

When I say 1/2" high I should also state that my motorcycle posture is horrible. I slump down a bit after riding a while and that makes the shield that 1/2" too high. If I set up as my grandmother always told me too it is fine.

Try a back-brace. I ALWAYS wear one while riding, and it keeps me from 'slumping'.

I just bought one a month or so ago............haven't used it yet though. Too much white fluffy stuff.

I've read reports from someone from Australia that these shields are not so great in the summer - they block so much wind, you're actually deprived of cooling.

Any opinions in this regard? Too early to tell?

I seem to get adequate air flow to keep cool. Haven't tried it at 105 F yet but will next summer. Probably wouldn't be nice in Arizona in July though.

FWIW - on both my Vs, I put the BIGGER one on for winter or colder temps, OR for long rides where rain's possible, and use the OEM ones during warmer times. I do the SAME w/ my handguards regarding their plastic "shields".

I'll need a few months before I can test hot (90+) weather riding. I suspect that it will be fine as I'm pretty acclimatized to Texas weather.
