    Aftermarket Screen advice...

    I have searched and researched extensively, but cant find anything on my specific queries.

    Has anyone purchased or used the NN Super High Wide Screen?

    Is it recommended? Is there anything else (such as the Givi) that is better/more suited?

    I'm 6ft 2in and am looking for a real world idea of what further protection it provides and what issues there are with it (views reduced, etc). I commute 122 (soon to be 130) miles round trip through some country lanes and mostly motorways.

    I've tried the standard screen in all positions and just get a little too much wind in the face/helmet area.

    I'm looking at installing the wingless as well, but am a little worried about drilling the plastic.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance and/or massive amounts of 'sledging'.

    Peter

    Also, how is the original screen measured in height? Is it from the base of the lights parallel to where the screen wraps around or from the top of the lights to the top of the screen?

    Is this the same way that the NN screen would be measured?

    Note - what works for one may not work for another. The purchasing to find the right one for you can be expensive and you may not even find the right one!

    I know what you mean, I'v had the same quandary with other bikes. I was hoping that maybe someone of a similar size to me, may provide a slightly better or more accurate comparison.

    If it helps I am also 6 foot 2, single the second screen is about 3/4 up with no vibrations but 2 up I need to put it to an inch of its max and there are some vibration at slower speeds - but its a cast improvement on the standard which for the pillion resulted in a rag doll situation as she is 5-10

    Thanks rodsharp. Would be handy if I could rent or try before you buy on such a personal item!

    Thanks autogs,

    I've read about the MRA x add on elsewhere as well. Plus I used to have one on my Deauville. I struggled to find the sweet spot for buffeting. Maybe it will be different on the GS.

    Thanks rossman999,

    Is that the Nippy Normans SuperHigh screen? My pillion is also 5ft 10, so interesting info.

    Purchase made...

    I've ordered a NN screen as it's only £75. Will see how it fares...

    Report back how it fairs, I'm 6'6. And have just got the screen in the best position with an E1 lid. Not all the way up, GSA screen.

    I'm comfy at 80 as long as there isn't a white van man in front.

    But with a head wind I want more protection, does a bigger screen actually ever give this?

    W-w, I'll be sure to. I've got a C3 Pro, but don't find it any quieter than other lids.

    Finally got the NN super high/wide screen yesterday.

    Fitting was trickier than I thought, as the nuts behind the original screen are fiddly to get to (fairly straight forward with right sockets/spanners, etc, but just unexpected from previous screen experience on other makes).

    Taking my first ride today, but first impressions are that when I'm sat on the bike (standard seat hight), I look through the screen in the highest position. I'm 6' 2", so have taken it to it's lowest setting for my first ride today. I now look slightly over the top of it and it doesn't interfere with my Garmin Zumo 590LM in either highest or lowest position.

    Long commute today (130 mile round trip), so will feed back later on comfort, movement, etc.

    Also fitted the NN grip buddies, so hopefully they will improve grip comfort
