Installed pics:




This screen is hands down better than the Honda tall option. There is a tiny bit of side to side buffeting at high speeds starts around 65mph (100-110kph). I was cruising comfortably at about 80 mph (130kph) and it easily felt better than the honda tall screen at about 60+.  I would definitely recommend this screen to any taller guys over the Honda tall screen.  (I'm 6'3'' (190.5cm)with an inseam of 31'' (79cm)) There is also great coverage of the hands with screen.

Thanks. I ordered mine from Italy yesterday and it's due for delivery Tuesday  :002:

I fitted the Puig screen a few weeks ago (purchased from Germany on eBay). I'm very happy with it so far. Much smoother airflow over the helmet. I only get buffeting when following a large vehicle, which is to be expected.

I'm 6' 3" with a Shoei GT-Air helmet and found the buffeting with the standard screen too much to handle at 100 - 110 kph. I'm also going to try a couple of spacers under the base of the Puig screen just for interest's sake.

Unfortunately, it won't work. There just isn't enough room. Even tried with a set of bar risers but it made the situation worse.

I got the Vario Touring screen last fall, it was an easy install.  Only had few runs with it before the snow came but I found it very good.  Needed to try a few adjustments on the spoiler to get the best performance for my height (5ft 10ins).  Now if the snow would just go away!! I could try it out some more
