    Touring Screen Discussion, again – 2011

    Hi All

    It seams that Crossrunners and touring screens are not the perfect combination. Some use adjusters to omit the problem. But if you don´t want adjusters, you will have to choose the perfect screen for your shape of body.

    From the different discussions in here, it is not obvious which screen will be ok for you. The physical hight of the screen can easily be found. But  depending on the angle of the screen and how tall you are, you will have different opinions.

    I am concerned about that some screens might be too tall for me. So I need a little help.
    Could someone please put the bike on the centerstand and measure from the ground to the top of the screen. ( without adjusters)
    These are the screens I probably will choose among.
    Puig Touring
    Powerbronze
    Givi Touring


    PS:
    With all the experience we have, it would be nice to summarize touring screens in a table.
    A guide to see other peoples opinion. The fields could be e.g.
    - Product
    - Screen adjusters
    - CR year
    - How tall are you
    - Turbulence/buffering chest (1-10) 1= Poor and 10=Perfect
    - Turbulence /buffering helmet  (1-10) 1= Poor and 10=Perfect
    - Short commend
    - Member


    Anyone see that as good idea?
    Best Regards

    Have you seen Powerbronze's latest adjuster kit? It allows you to change the height & angle of either the OEM screen or their own screen.

    Hi
    Yes, I agree that it is very functional. But the bracket is also very visible/dominant.

    The powerbronze screen adjusters fitted to my bike are fairly well hidden and look ok on the bike. Well worth having for the difference they make as a taller screen alone doesn't cure the problem. Well happy with my set up of Powerbronze adjusters and Ermax screen. :002:

    Do you have any close up pics of your screen and the adjusters please?  :031:
