Powerbronze screen adjustment brackets
on: February 17, 2017, 05:59:40 PM
Anyone fitted the Powerbronze adjustable screen brackets?

I pick my bike up in a couple of weeks time. When I test rode the CR I was reasonably impressed with the standard screen other than a little turbulence at higher speeds. Just wondering if the PB adjustment brackets with the standard screen might overcome this for touring?

Any comments or input gratefully received.

When I test rode before buying I experienced a great deal of turbulence at speed. I fitted the Powerbronze adjusters and Powerbronze larger screen to my 2016 CR. I now ride with the adjusters right down and back and find this perfect for me at 5'10"
as I like a little wind on my head to keep the visor clear, hope this helps.

I got a higher Ermax screen because of the turbulence, was better but not ideal. Fitted Powerbronze adjusters with Ermax screen and all is now good  :002:

I am contemplating the Powerbronze adjusters with the standard screen and if that doesn't work then I will buy a second screen.

The screen adjusters on the 2017 model look good and work nicely although I don't understand why they didn't adopt the design Honda put together for the Cross Tourer, which is excellent.

Does anybody know if the screen on the 2017 model will fit the 2015 model and has anybody been out for a test ride yet to see if it's any better?

I have recently fitted the Powerbronze adjusters to the standard screen, a well made bit of kit however they unfortunately ship them with rubbish plastic bolts which strip as soon as you try to tighten the screen. Once replaced with metal bolts all is secure.

So far, I have only had a quick ride with the new setup, and mainly at the lowest position as it has been the hottest summer on record here in Brisbane, Australia.  I really like the fact that the low position is lower than the stock screen, as it gives more air and a bit less noise - I'm pretty sure the with the range of adjustability that higher positions should help relieve the noise and turbulence a bit too.  Will be testing it our thoroughly as it gets colder in a few months before heading to Phillip Island for the MotoGP later this year.   :046:

I read about the fiasco one of the forum members had with the Givi Airflow screen but having seen one at my local Honda dealer fitted to a CR, I decided to buy one. It looks as if it will deliver in most conditions, most notably at high speed when touring. Let's hope mine stays anchored to the bodywork! I pick my CR up on Friday, just a shame the weather forecast is so poor. Envious of all that Aussie sunshine? Nah, rather have rain, snow and ice any day 🤥
