KTM handguard/GIVI windscreen clearance

Just put my new KTM handguards on and they really smack the GIVI screen during turns. GIVI screen is in the highest position. It is so bad, that I had to put the stock screen back on! Now I'm getting slammed in the face with turbulence again. I would like to keep the GIVI screen as it worked well for me but would be willing to try another screen if it provides good wind coverage.

Can anyone with KTM handguards fill me in on their shield setup and any issues you may have with clearance?

Thanks a bunch!

I have some other handguards but had the some problem. Ended up getting Rox Risers to gain clearance.

Fitted Barkbusters to mine and the they hit the Givi screen. My husband just trimmed a fraction off the bottom side edges of the screen... still have the height of the screen but now the hand guards don't touch it on full lock !!

I put Accebis guards on about a month ago. I also have, had, Givi shield. I had to trim about an inch off both sides with a hacksaw so I could get a full turn on the bars. no real big deal and nobody really can tell.

This is lame. Doesn't twisted throttle have a hand guard that will work with the givi?

I just did mine a couple of weeks ago, KTM and a Givi screen. As it isn't even close to clearing the screen, I trimmed it. I'll take a couple of pics tonight and post them. It worked out fine.

Pics would be great, I know what you mean, you can barely turn the bars without hitting the screen. I just ordered a Madstad adjustable bracket that I want to try before I do any trimming.

I just cut the screen with a jig saw using a fine tooth metal blade. Drew a straight line down from the upper part and cut off the entire lower extended part....And on the KTM's, a lot cleaner look with out the end weights.
