Screens on 2017 models
on: September 02, 2018, 02:35:21 AM
Just got a 2017 CR and would like to try a different screen. I know this model has the adjusters, and if i dip my head by about 5 inches its a very quiet ride, on the top setting.

The Givi 1157St is 55cm tall, (Standard is around 39cm),and that seems too high, but without guessing, I'm hoping someone here has tried, or has experience of, something higher on the 2017 on.

I am otherwise, a happy customer, coming from a 1200 Triumph tiger, this CR is a featherweight, at least by feel, but my 2016 triumph had a Triumph touring screen on electric adjustment, and at about 80% from top it was almost silent, you could ride visor full up at 80mph, so Ive been a bit spoilt.

I've got one of the last of the previous model so fitted a Palmer adjuster bracket along with an Ermax screen and extremely pleased with the result. I'm not sure how much adjustment you have with new model but this screen set it's highest position allows me to ride comfortably with my visor up at 80/90mph (allegedly) without any problem whatsoever  :400:

I have a 15 model with a standard screen and Honda screen adjusters. Lifts the screen high enough to massively reduce the number of flies hitting my visor and I can ride around with my visor open at 60mph with ease. I'm 5ft 10.

I experienced similar with my 2015, which came with a MRA vario, after I'd fitted the Powerbronze adjuster... if I ducked down, all was calm. So I fitted a Puig touring screen.. much taller, but not all that much difference. There is considerably less turbulence in general (particularly that generated from air flowing under the MRA screen, which I had set quite high), but I still need to duck down to get the quiet ride I'd like.

See attached pic for an idea of how big the Puig screen is.

I've reached the point where, if I want vastly reduced airflow to my head, I take the car!

I know from lots of previous experience that bigger is not better, usually more height increases noise, as the air funnels around the side, and you feel a "suction" on your upper body.

It can be a long, expensive, experience trying to improve the noise.

Ermax have a 45cm (Std 39) that might be better than the Givi at 55cm, But at £80 plus, each, its a bit like playing a lottery.

Yep, exactly that. I've found the Puig screen is the best overall, so far.. but as you say, at 80+ a time, chasing perfection is likely to be an expensive business.

I think the a manufacturers should let us rest ride the screens to see what improvement if any they make, how do they come up with the shapes and sizes. The standard for me was woeful at anything over 50 my current set up is a an Giving touring screen from my old Vstrom on a Powerbronze bracket not perfect but best of a bad job ear plugs helmets height and posture all play a part happy hunting.

There's an owners' forum meetup in the making there... a 'try different screens' day would be entertaining!

The TDM forum I'm on have occasional fettling day meetups... it's a great idea for exchange of ideas, skills, kit, etc.

Well folks, after much deliberation, i coughed up £82 for the "enormous" Givi screen.

The ERMAX seemed to be generic, ie 2015 to 2018, meaning it probably hasn't changed design, and as i have the adjusters, this could be a mismatch, and the cheapest place was Silverstone Motor in France https://www.silverstonemotor.com/en/, not the best way to get reliable information, in french.

so could be an "experience".

Well for the first time, an after market Givi screen, has been a success.

Its at least an 80% improvement, i can now at least sit upright, visor up, at 80mph, if needed, and the noise is almost gone  :152:

So for any 2017's with the adjusters fitted, the Givi screen more or less works.

Thanks for the input folks, i knew i just had to risk the purchase price.

For those interested this is a site in ITALY i get a lot of my Givi parts and luggage , and all posted for 7.50 Euro to UK
