I've been looking around for a larger windscreen and a few things I've read have said that the Givi is top notch.

I wondered if any one here has changed theirs out and had any experiences or recommendations to share.

I put the Kawasaki factory wider/taller one on. It seems much better, but I haven't ridden it far enough yet for a good test.

I put the Kawi factory one one and it has made a big difference. It's still not perfect for me since I'm 6'4" but it certainly helped. Since reading the posts in here, I might look at the Givi. I need to measure the factory one to compare but can't until my bike gets out of the shop. Its getting it's spring maintenance.

Vario Windscreen

For myself, I purchased the Vario windscreen. Adjustable, but it's a look that you need to be comfortable with. I'm awaiting the snow to go, so I can test and provide some real road feedback. I'm 5'11, and from what I've read, I should be very happy.

Givi Windscreen

Hi, I've got the Givi D405ST windscreen as shown below. Once I found the correct height it is perfect for me. I found the lowest setting to be the best for least buffeting. I'm 5'11" and somewhat of a "widebody". I find that the added width of the Givi does a great job of shielding my body as well as my hands.

I ordered the GIVI. Just checked the tracking #, be here tomorrow.YEAH!! I'll post my findings soon. BTW, picked up a set of Cortech sport soft saddlebags at a swap meet. The guy that was selling them only mounted them once. They weren't big enough for him. They look brand new. I got em' for $50. They go for $129 new. Very lucky for me.

I got the GIVI yesterday. I tried it on the lowest setting for about 20 miles. Air hits me at the mid-shield level. Chest area is well covered. I'm gonna try moving it up to mid level today. So far I'm impressed by the quality of the unit. Thicker than stock, with nicely beveled edges. Clear optics.

I went with the vario because the givi seemed a bit large to keep the bike looking the way it does, i love the look of the vario too. The givi defently has best protection from what i hear, but the vario works 11 times better than stock, and is good enough for me!. im about 6 foot and the wind hits about 3/4 the way up my helmet, witch is defenetly tolerable

I have a Vario type that works brilliant. I'm 5/ 10 height. At 185 KM/h i can leave my visor up and don't shed a tear at all... This screen is adjustable too which I have at full wind deflection. Love it and it looks as good as it works. Tinted looks the best on my green machine..

I looked at windscreens yesterday and I don't know which one to get. The vario is prolly the best for me however I think it's ugly so I won't be getting it. Also I sure would hate to buy one and it not deflect the air above my head and I would be stuck.

The kawasaki tall windscreen is only 2 inches taller than stock, right now with stock at it's highest setting I get hit about mid face shield with air and I don't think 2" would do the trick. Any thoughts?


I am 6'2" 190# with a 34" inseam, does anyone have an aftermarket windscreen that is around my height for comparison?

Hi, new poster.

I am really interested in windscreen options. I am 6'6", and I am getting wind from mid-chest up, and it's kind of sucking. I could get the givi and the vario, but if it still means full wind blast (or more, with redirected wind blast) in the face, there seems to be not much point.

I am 6'0 tall and get hit just barely on the top of the helmet with the GIVI on the mid setting. Gonna try it all the way up tomorrow. I'll post findings.
BTW..GIVI screen is very high quality, with clear optics. So far i like it.
