I also like the look of the Givi.  Lots of adjustment possible.  Easier to fit than the adjustable Powerbronze?

The Puig?  It looks higher than the others.  Can you say what he problem was please?

The puig indeed. It made more windnoise then the stock screen.
Now I have the givi airflow and palmer adjuster, not a "bubble of calm", but acceptable and a lot better then stock.

Anyone tried the Puig?  Looks a decent height.  I always reckon that if you are going to the trouble of replacing, you may as well get one that gives maximum protection.

I have this screen, mounted on the Powerbronze adjuster. It's not perfect, but the best I've found for reducing turbulence. I find it a bit too tall in the way that the top of the screen sits just about on my line of sight where I'm doing a final scan of the road for bumps and debris, slightly distorting my view. Mine is also slightly tinted, such that in low light I do not have a particularly clear view through it.

I've just ordered a set of Palmer adjusters to go with my puig screen which I've found still cause noisy turbulence, although it does offer a lot more protection and is better than the MRA Vario and Honda touring screen for me.

I've also tried an MRA XCreen on top of the puig but found it didn't help dramatically.

Finally ordered and fitted the Givi AF1139 as in the video.  Works brilliantly and a doddle to fit.  Watch the video and make sure you apply some cooking oil or something initially.

Very pleased.  Cuts down the wind noise and air blast significantly.  Height setting to fit the smallest and tallest of us.

Late reply but +1 on the Givi Air Flow. I have  my top section set @ about 3/4 up for speed to 120kph bug catching while cruising/touring. I remove the top completely above that speed due to buffering plus with air flow by then getting above the helmet, @ 5'10",  it's not waranted anyway .... Best of both worlds.

I've checked the multiple threads here & ordered the puig for my 2012 bike

As soon as I get it & installed will let you all know.

As an update to this, I discovered the other day that things were much improved by simply washing the bike. A cheap and easy fix!  :008:
