Utilimuter,

Have you received the Givi screen? if so, how does it perform for you?

I haven't yet. They are on back order in the states about 5 more weeks. . .  :151:  As soon as it comes in, I'll install it and take it out for a review. I live right off of a highway with a 75mph speed limit.

I would like to know too!  I spoke with Twisted Throttle and they are about to get a shipment in of these.  However they were all on backorder.  Would be nice to see if anyone who back ordered one and is a taller rider would pipe in once they get it.

Side note:

I kept trying to find a way to make the stock windshield work....and I did!

I installed a washer on each bottom mounting point. Raising the bottom of the windshield 1/4" and took the bike for a highway ride at 70Mph and the buffering/turbulence was pretty much gone!!!!

It was so quiet, I couldn't believe it. I am still planning on getting a taller screen.

I hope this helps other members too.

I attached pictures of the washer and part number

I've got mine on order from them. Hopefully I'll be in that first shipment.

Mine is fitted. I'll try and get a pic tonight. I'll also take it for a bit of a spin and let you know how it does at different speeds. Here are a few comparison shots:

The same situation as when I got my GIVI Top box, the screen is cheaper from Accessorimotostore.com in Italy than it is from a U.K. shop or website.

Crazy really

I cannot stand that stock windscreen anymore, it's useless!

Wanted to keep it but always riding with my visor closed and a useless jet helmet is not for me! Nor is cold in my chest and neck!

I used to ride with open visor until 100~120 km/h on my previous Transalp.

I don't like the Givi windscreen (too big) but I ordered another big one, the Puig model. :)
