New Windscreen

Just got a new windscreen. Went with the Givi A240 and A257A install kit from twisted throttle.

Givi Windscreen (Universal A240 - Light Smoke) - Givi 240A : TwistedThrottle.com.

A little on the pricey side considering what it is, but fit and finish are great and I am very happy with the way it looks on the bike. Have to wait till tomorrow to road test it.

Looks good! That'll keep the bugs off the gauges (and hopefully you to)!

For sure, and give a little protection to my I-phone which attaches to the handlebar, between the mounts.

Cool, I haven't seen the clear Givi before. Looks like something between the OEM screen and some of the larger ones. nice bike!

I just put the A240 back on mine while I try to figure out how to get rid of the vibration/rattle from the Honda wind screen, there's very little difference between the two screens when it comes to protection

Looks good Willie. I have a similar Givi, made for the 599. Definitely keeps the gages clean and pushes the wind blast up a bit, about to neck level on me (6'3").

Thanks all for the comments! Just road tested her, didn't notice a huge difference in keeping the wind off of the torso, but some... about like you'd expect. I do like it though and would recommend it to any one looking for a smaller screen.

Rode her again last night and wanted to revise my original evaluation. My first road test was in less than ideal conditions with lots of cross winds. Yesterday's conditions were very still and there was noticeable difference in wind deflection. At 5'9", I found that a slightly crouched position, dropping my stance 4 -5 inches below a standard upright riding position, made a huge difference. I think this is going to be really appreciated as the weather turns cooler. Again, definite thumbs up on the Givi!

faster you go the better they work....highway speed upper body and head is more relaxed....little more wind noise,but trade off is worth it

I got the exact same Givi on ebay this past friday, NIB. It hasnt' arrived yet. I'm glad to hear that it works well, and it looks pretty good to. Can't wait to try it out. It's starting to get pretty chilly here in GA in the early morning and at night, mid 40's.
