Thinking of buying the Puig screen and Honda wingletts just wondering if anyone has used either or both and if they are worth the money thanks Rob  :031:

Honda don't recommend that you use the winglets with their tall screen so I don't know if they would be OK with the Puig.

I think an email to honda to get the answer.  The launch pic of the crossrunner on visordown show the air deflectors with touring screen.  And we know the man who would love the opportunity to give Honda another kicking.....


Joe. over to you mate.  Email the top mate if you dont mind  :001: :076: :076: :076:

I talked to a couple of dealers a while ago about this mate (and very politely on that occasion) - they said that they don't really know why the Honda accessories web site says don't fit the Honda tall screen and wind deflectors together - but they assumed that it would be because there is a risk that the "turbulence" caused by the touring screen has potential to cause a strong force when hitting the deflected air from the side deflectors whereby said deflectors are ripped off.

Sounds plausible - even if they stop on - maybe there would be conflicting air streams (remember that Honda spent ages and ages in the windtunnell with the Crossrunner.
Anything worse than that - like "the bike will take off , flip and do a belly flop" is stretching the imagination. Given what they said - I decide I wouldn't invest in the deflectors - but somebody on this forum has them fitted together with a tall screen I seem to remember. Have tried a quick topic serach but didn't turn anything up.

My guess is that they do take an amount of wind off the body which is not a bad thing - but just how much difference they make - can't say.
