Gen 1 windshield

Just installed a Givi 405 st & like it a lot. I had a V stream on my 08 for about three years. It was pretty good but I much less noise & buffiting when I would scrunch my neck & shoulders down 3 or 4 inches. Found Competition Accessory had the Givi on sale for about 56 bucks. It is 17" high & 17" wide at the bottom. Narrows down to about 8 at the top. The V stream is 14" high but narrow at the bottom wide at the top. I am getting much less buffeting & can ride with my face shield up at 60. I had to drop the shield at 35 or 40 before. There is still wind noise but ear plugs are cheap. I am 5' 10" with a 32 leg.

I have V-stream, Madstad 22", OEM Kaw and Givi. They are ok, but I prefer the OEM Kaw screen best. I run the Madstad in Winter and Kaw screen in summer. At speeds above 70mph, the buffering is too much with V-stream, Madstad and Givi screens. I get clean air on my chest and helmet with the Kaw screen. I sometimes think that the Kaw "mini" screen fits the gen-1 Versys best. Just my 2 cents.
