The CalSci wind screen looks like the Alien head.

Joking aside... if it works, then so be it.  I'm exploring options to reduce wind noise/turbulence as well.

I made an extension the other day. Took it for a test ride and love it.. wind goes over my head finally. It gets cold here a lot.  Piece of $4 lexan from home depot and a heat gun.

Good tip!

Just went from a Givi to the Calsci myself. 5'9'' and I can now have the visor up on my Shoei GT Air to 60mph (the most I could do on any of my past bikes with an RF1200) without turbulence. The give just wasn't quite tall enough... oh well. Up for sale it goes.

The Calsci is a fantastic screen, my first from them thusfar. No other bike has required it.

If it's not too much to ask, can you post a pic of the two windshields side by side?  I know the Givi is smaller but by how much...  the OEM windscreen just ain't cutting it for me. 

Maybe a Thailand "Puig" windshield, posted below?  Ha.

Anybody have the source for the wunderleicht deflector in the USA?

I need just a bit more deflection on top of the CAL-SCI, as 6'4'' is a curse of finding a happy envelope of fairing nirvana.

After a 300 mile ride today, I found by just putting up my hand on top of the fairing, it finally gave that comfortable air flow just to the top of my helmet, and a deflector, that can be turned down in the slower twisties would be nice---as I believe the Wunderleicht would accomplish.

Got it,---will google first, no excuse for playing ignorant anymore...thank you  :430:

Note, cheaper if I buy the product on Amazon, than directly on their site.  That shouldn't be the case, but not going to fight it. :187:

Or, try the Puig clip-on, $115.51.  Free shipping (in USA).

Anyone else tried rosmoe's 1 1/4" spacer method.  It will be the most economical way to go if results are satisfactory.

If you response is "get a bigger bike" go f@#k yourself.

I am 5'8'', I'm still try to find comfortable noise level in about 5 months. I have tried without screen (constantly whistle), screen in lower position - it is noisy, in upper position - it is impossible because claps sound on top of my helmet. I got complete silence inside helmet only when I stand on pegs on any speed (I have tried until 60 mi). I have replaced screen bolts on 35mm long ones and have played with them, I tried to change angle of screen by putting small spacers under lower attachment bolts. Now I ride with 1'' spacers, it's little better than just stock windshield in lower position for me, but now I have noticed that I have begin to catch dust in my eyes from everywhere if I keep a small opening of my visor. I want to cry because I very like this motorcycle and in the same time I hate Honda engineers for the ugly windshield turbulence that killing my ears.
