Replacement Windscreen

I purchased a RallyRaid windscreen and fitted it to my bike hoping it would cut down on the buffeting. I have done roughly 1000 klm, and I am not sure that it has made enough difference to warrant the cost of it. My plan is to now refit the stranded screen and do a trip and try to compare the difference between the two. Has anyone else found this to de the case or am I the only one?

I donít get any buffeting (turbulence) with the RR screen. But I didnít get any buffeting with the stock screen either because it was much too low to cause any. The RR screen keeps the wind off of my chest much better. But my head is still up in the (smooth) airflow.

Ah, screens... like oil and tyres, as the internet saying goes - YMMV.

fwiw. I've used both the stock shorty screen and the taller Rally Raid Touring screen, and I'm actually quite happy with the stock screen when using my full-face Icon Variant helmet.

However, I would say that the Rally-Raid screen was noticeably better at cutting down wind noise at higher speeds in that helmet, while conversely in my open-face Arai helmet (with a short peak), it seemed more noisy so I refitted the OEM screen when riding with that helmet as it was actually quieter at higher speeds.

So the upshot of this is I think it depends very much on your helmet, build and riding position whether a particular screen combo works for you?

Hope that helps...
