Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. I put one of the Kawasaki MRA shields on this spring, think it looks awesome but unfortunately am getting a lot of buffeting at head level and alot of noise (even with earplugs). Am either going back to stock upside down or was considering one of these lips. Anyone have luck with it? Anyone want to sell one?

Still tryin' to recapture the magic of being 10 years old on a Honda Mini Trail 50...

Put the laminar lip on last week. Easy install and works great! Smoothes the air flow and eliminates the buffeting.

I put the laminar lip on the second largest OEM V windscreen. The combination is 17" high, and was a great improvement in reducing turbulence. The L Lip did not fit flat against the OEM screen, since the OEM screen has assorted bends forming a wind tunnel up the shield. So, as an experiment, I covered the gap with duct tape. The result was an even smoother flow of air over the combination. I've ridden the combination up to 85 mph with no issues. All of this told me I needed a larger/taller windscreen, so I ordered the GT Touring screen from MikeShields. Should have it in a week or so.
