Longer bolts and tap washers will move the screen from the Barkbusters.
Thanks Mr. Paul. Big DUH on my part.

Do you know if it fits the 2019 model?
No the Givi D1121 wont fit without some extra work.
When aligned on the left side:

The screw holes don't match on the right side.

With longer screws and some spacers it could fit.

Here you can see the 19 Honda windshield on top of the Givi

Thanks a lot eightysix, now I know for sure that it doesn't fit. I'm going to try a MRA Vario to see if it works for me and my height.

I tried the Givi touring screen on my 2016, as it came with the bike as a spare....didn't rate it to be honest. It definitely reduced wind blast up to around 40mph, but didn't seem to clean the air up as well as the stock '16 screen at speeds above that....very subjective and rider/helmet dependent

Just thought Id post my recent experience with this screen.

I also installed the Givi/Kappa windscreen over the past few weeks on a 2015, switching from a Puig 6480H.

Took a while to install, mainly because the spacers I bought were too thin and poked the new wellnuts out.

Ended up fitting in the lowest position with two tap washers on the bottom screws and one on the top (3/8 I think). The screen is flush to the bike front without these allowing no air flow underneath. Photo attached of this setup.

I found a similar amount of buffeting to the Puig screen at this point.

I then added a MRA Vario visor screen (type B). Part of the reason I switched it the Givi was the width to both - give room for the visor without looking it stupid (I dont like the look of the sports variant or Puig version), and reduce the air deflecting around the side of the screen in windy cold weather.

At 57 it gives plenty of protection from buffeting now. The is still space above protected from buffeting for those taller than me, and lots of variability with the MRA (I set mine fairly low down).

Hopefully this helps somebody!
