New Puig from Revzilla installed.
Had an 1" of rain today. Still contemplating throwing on my gear and riding to see the difference.
Will get back.

New Puig from Revzilla installed. [snip]

Look forward to hearing your thoughts. Is that the smoke model? Great price from Revzilla.

So rode with the new Puig in pouring rain. I had mounted it the highest setting. Btw I'm 6'2".
So at 35mph I could feel that there was no wind on shoulders and chest. As soon as I got above 50 I could feel the buffeting that Dukie had talked about.
The plus for me as I tend to ride in the rain alot is.... Now at the wind comes over the new windscreen and then down my face shield. This blows the rain right of my shield.
With the stock screen the rain drops jut stayed static and did not move
Until I move my head from side to side.
I readjusted new Puig to the lowest setting on the bracket.
This first of all looks better. Didn't see too much difference. 
Overall I like the it.
I'll need to test drive it some more when it's dry and I don't have traffic all bunched up around me.
More later.
A pretty good deal tho at $86. Oh and yes it is a smoked shield. Darker than it appears on the Revzilla site.
I also had $25 credit from Revzilla after buying $500 worth of riding year so my total cost was $61

Looks like the Cal-sci is the tallest at 11 inches over stock screen but its also expensive  :005:

No matter what I've tried there is still excessive wind noise, high/low screen setting no noticable difference, a givvi tall screen which is just as noisy with unbelievable buffeting bordering on dangerous in strong side winds and when overtaking lorries. A new Schuberth C3 pro helmet made no difference, still noisy, it's quieter on my TT600RE, so I think a lower screen may be the answer.

Well, after lowering my screen about 2 inches below standard it tested crap.
So it's back in the low position with happy results, between the high and extra low I find the normal low is good. Gives minimal noisy wind and far less turbulence than the other settings.
I've spent/wasted lots of cash on screens that never worked so considering the options and reports here I'm staying with the standard.

I'm happy with no screen, but, I've ridden enduros and naked bikes since 1960.

Same results here, 178 cm tall using Shark Evo 3 or Icon Variant ADV helmet. Shark is noisier.

Well with my new moludar helmet and Puig windscreen (on the lower position) I can ride up to 100 km/h with flip up!

Some turbulence but much better than stock!  :018:

I'm 1.82cm tall.
