puig touring screen
« on: December 05, 2011, 05:33:08 PM »
Just noticed this while drooling over the ixil exhaust again. Wind turbulence issue (depending on height of rider etc ) still to be considered but price and looks appear better than the Honda standard tall screen.

Hi,

thanks for the link.

I guess more and more extra parts will come up for the crossrunner.
About the windscreen,I will wait until he next exhibition in Dortmund to see these parts live.

It is 6 cm highier than the Honda's high windscreen.This will make a LOT of difference.When i was wearing on my bike the Honda's high windscreen and tried to lower my position a little bit, no more turbulance problems.So i think and hope this height is the key..

You could be right Redeemer -have you purchased a Puig Screen??
 If so - I would like to see some pictures (front and side views) of the whole bike with the Puig Screen fitted.

No.I think i after the original's high windscreen disaster i should wait for the quality safety of an MRA windscreen.I hope they will made 1 for us soon!
Also it's a fact that to use a high windscreen or not it depends of your riding speed.I mean that if your usual speed is 130km/h average no need of a high windscreen.With the small 1 you ride more smoothly.On the other hand if you ride with 150+km/h you need a highier 1 to ride without the air pushing your head back,in cost of stability of course.

Hello,

it is also up to your body length what kind of windscreen make sense.
At my testride with the CR there was the original higher windscreen installed...I guess I drove about 130 Km/h max.
No position change needed on the bike...now with the small screen I feel the wind much more.
If I drive 160-190 Km/h of course I go in racing position,but it makes no fun with the CR.

If I will make longer travel with the CR,then I will think about higher screen for the "autobahn" parts.
But I will open my eyes for all extra parts for the CR.

My main concern with the puig, even tho I know they make good screens is, there is no metal bracket to help stop the screen flexing at the top which the honda screen does.
May well try one come spring time providing the retailer will take it back if it flexes.

I hope cee baileys, givi  and mra come out with a screen because the honda touring screen sucks...

Have sent an email to suppliers asking for some more info and pictures.
Looks to me like there is a double crease built vertically into the screen design which might add to strength and avoid/reduce flexing.
It might also cause a problem with me Barkbuster Handguards which might collide with the wider screen base when on full lock. :182:
Will post up anything of use that I find out - but "try and buy" would be the best way and it's best to wait and see what else becomes available.
