It's far easier to find and read info on a specific model of windscreen when it's posted in a separate thread.  No need to lump it all in one thread in a long and sometimes confusing mess.  Imagine trying to read a book that wasn't organized into chapters, just a story jumping around in no particular order.  Maybe a new section header can be created for windscreens and each make/model be in it's own thread, that would be ideal.

+ 1      Makes sense to me. In those generic threads most of time I'm not sure which product the responder is commenting on. Then if ya ask a Q about product "A" folks respond with a comment on product "B".

I'm 1.80 Mt's or 5.9 and was experiencing very annoying turbulence/buffeting noises that mostly disappeared or went almost to none with this windshield at the high position. Just a regular, unavoidable and acceptable wind noise. Also now I can ride in the city with the visor open. Very pleased here.

I have had my Puig for about 7 months and love the extra protection it provides. I no longer feel neck strain from the wind. I'm 5"11 and as long as I don't stretch my torso I do not feel much wind. I may get the additional visor at some point we shall see. Anyways, here is a thumb up for a taller shield than what came with the bike. The Puig windshield has helped greatly.

Hi guys,  :148:
I'm in need of a bit of help please.

I'm just about to order the new Puig touring windscreen with the additional wind deflector installed, anybody out there got any feedback for me please?

I have read nearly all the posts relating to after market windscreens and still no idea what's best

Currently I'm commuting around 150 miles a day speeds upto 80mph on A, B roads and some motorways. I'm just being hammered by the wind, also I cant hear myself think at time too.

#help

Kind regards

Clive.

Hi Harry,

I was having issues with noise (rather than wind) and found that taping over the integrated speaker pocket in my helmet (Bell Qualifier DLX) made a massive improvement.

I have the 13 model X with stock shield, I have added a cheap 'clip-on' screen that improved wind but had little impact on noise.

I use earplugs but by far the biggest impact on helmet noise was to tape seals on my helmet.

Not sure if this is any use to you with your specific helmet, but you may be able to make some similar improvements to helmet noise.

Cheers, Treedoc

I'm 6'2" and the wind goes over my helmet finally after adding the visor/extender.  I would highly recommend it with addition to a taller windshield.  I think our main issue with this wind is the windshid angle.  The visor corrects that a bit.

Good evening

Well, I'm happy to report that my pug windscreen arrived finally!! I've installed it with no effort too, I did however have to adjust the knuckle protectors to allow full lock.
The difference is amazing!! I can ride at 80mph with minimal wind going into my face, this was a no no with stock shield.
I've given it a good test today clocking up 160 miles around north wales,

Overall very happy with my purchase.
Also installed a puig rear hugger and front fender extension.

Looks the part too.

Any questions please feel free to ask.

Thank you all for your advice and replies  :152:m
