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.

A lot of us have experimented to find out what works for us. I have tried the OE small screen that came on my bike in the low and high position with no luck. I bought a member's 118bikes Honda screen which is just a very dark Givi screen. It was better, not great. I have tried it in the upper and lower position. I have spaced it out about 1/2 inch in high and low position. Nothing worked for me. I rode a couple others CB-X. One with the Puig and one a Madstad set up with a 22-inch screen. The Madstad was by far the best. It all seems to come down to where your head is in the air stream and what comfort level you're expecting to get. I knew I'd never get it as smooth or quiet as my big cruiser's windshield.

Good evening fellow CB500x owners.

I've just ordered the Puig screen from France, arriving mid August hopefully, until then I will just have to be battered by the English climate,

I'm wearing personally moulded ear plugs at a cost of 75 however these are over 15 years old :745: but still fit well.

I will update this thread once new screen is installed. hope its worth the money :138:

Ride safely

Harry

I'm a bit surprised reading some of this subject - Admittedly I'm coming from a naked bike, but the standard screen (2017) seems great to me!!

Same here on a 2017.  I'm 6' with no windshield problems.
