Thumbs up Givi windscreen

I'm 6'1" and grew weary of being blown around on the highway so I broke down and bought a Givi windscreen. I installed it last night, and while I haven't had the opportunity to take the highway with it yet, I can already tell a major difference between the Givi and the stock windscreen. Now I get some buffetting on the top of my helmet and that's it'..... awesome

Can't wait to see the change on the highway!

Got mine from them too and it works great, but...I wish they made it just a bit higher. I'm only 5' 7" and have it on the highest setting. They lost a lot of tall people's business I think.

Another big Plus one from me on the Givi Screen. Around town I ride around with the stock one but I purchased one for trips and it sure does make a difference.

I ride with it in the middle position and find that to be good for me. It puts the air right into the vents on the top of my helmet. The high setting is too high and the low puts the lip at the top right in my line of sight. Works great and highly recommend the product.

EDIT: Oh, just in case anyone wanted to know, I'm 5'7" with a long body and short legs. Just so you get an Idea of preference if you happen to be the same size and build.

I have one as well, I'm 5'9" and it's just great. Will be interested in knowing how it feels when the weather turns cool. Right now it's certainly "Hotlanta" here......

I installed handguards with some foreknowledge that the GIVI screen may not clear the gaurds at full steering lock. Got the screen today and sure as ****, I need about 3/8 inch to avoid hitting the windscreen with the handguards. Anyone done a modification to fix this

You can cut windshield lexan/poly with a coping saw and clean up the edge with a piece of sandpaper. Go slow with the saw and let the blade do the work to keep from heating up the plastic and it will not bind in the cut.
