    Alternative screen for 1200GS Adventure

    I'm considering an alternative screen for my 1200GS Adventure.

    I'm 6ft, ride with the seat in the low position but still feel that an extra inch or two in height may reduce the buffeting....but have no idea if it'll actually work.

    I've been looking on YouTube and it seems the Puig Touring and Givi Adventure are the go to screens? I'd be interested in members' tried and tested recommendations please.

    I like the look of the tinted ones (not full black).

    Not an ADV but GS but I use the MRA screen , brilliant , no buffering and I cut 4 inches off mine , the deflector works really well.
    Sometimes having too much screen can cause worse buffering for some reason , I tried the ADV screen once , sold it after a few rides out in the early days . each to our own tho.

    Standard GSA screen with MRA X-Creen lip attached does the job for me. I found I was riding with it set much too high as well. Dropping it down with laminar flow over the top stopped all the buffeting, the vets worked on my lid, the rain cleared form my visor etc etc

    Didn't work on my KTM 1290 SA-T though, that was a beeatch for the buffeting.

    Puig touring screen works well for me. I haven't got the additional screen support but may add it as the larger screen does flex a bit

    I think any of the larger or add-on screen causes a fair amount of movement at speed or over bumpy roads.

    Agreed, the Puig Touring Screen is very good. The only support needed is the Givi one for about £22.

    Tinted (not black) Puig touring screen is excellent along with additional supports. I ride all year with my visor up and the screen does an excellent job of pushing wind and rain over my head. Happy to post a couple of photos if required.

    +1 for the Puig screen. Im a elfin height at 5ft 8" and it does work for me. Ride with visor up, even in the rain, and in conjunction with the winglets zero buffeting.



    R1250GS plus loads of bling = happiness.

    Can you see over the screen or do you have to look through it even at the lower setting?

    Del,

    Whats the overall height of the Screen from the top to bottom at the point of the V please

    And did you need to put any stiffening on it - is that a support bracket on the RHS ?
