Windshield

I would say the Puig "touring" screen. I have one on order. its 53cm high and 54cm wide, so should give good protection. Top of screen is nearly level with top of mirrors. Not sure if they sell Puig in USA though. I am in UK. Puig are a spanish company

This thread will be loaded with everyone's personal favorites. I am 6 ft and am happy with the stock windshield. It keeps most air off my chest, and keeps my head/helmet in clean air.

As for the rose color, use cling wrap (sarran wrap?) to cover the entire front of it, then carefully paint the inside flat black. Rose problem solved!

Press Any Key To Continue.

I have an older version of the National screen, it works excellent, virtually no noise or buffeting....I think it looks ok too. It is lightly tinted.

All I found for Puig Touring was replacement shields for fairings. Are there more for a naked bike?

National F15 Tall

I am using the F15 tour modified to fit the 919. I like it, I am 67" and can run 75 MPH on the Interstate with no problem. I does a pretty good job for the price. I had to drill a hole into the headlight bracket to mount the adjust bolt.

I'm happy with my GIVI. It is just a little bigger than the Honda screen.
It attaches to the headlight bracket and can be tilted slightly up or down.
It gets the wind off your chest also.

Barton I really like my Givi A755. At first I thought it was ugly but it grew on me. Good protection while still staying sporty. I am sure you have seen pictures of it on Facebook or here.
