Puig screen
« on: May 26, 2012, 08:18:26 PM »
After uhming and ahhing for ages   :084: I finally realised that if I wanted to get a higher screen in time for my trip to Scotland ( leaving next Thursday  :150: ) I better make a decision and order one  :169:.

The standard screen creates a lot of buffeting  :230: especially as the airflow hits my shoulders and creates all sorts of turbulence around my head  :182:  The Honda taller screen does a good job with the airflow but it made the instrument pod wobble alarmingly  :230:  So I decided to go for the Puig as it seems to be the highest at the moment.  Ringing around Pyramid Plastics had them in stock, they are available cheaper but I need it quick!  So around 14:00 Thursday I rang Pyramid to order, when I mentioned I needed it quickly the woman said she'd have a word with despatch to see what they could do.  It arrived next day so top marks to Pyramid for customer service  :152:

I fitted it this morning and had a quick blast on a variety of roads at various speeds  :014:  The screen flexes enough so that the instrument pod doesn't wobble  :046:  The airflow is directed further out to the sides so it just misses my shoulders, that improves the turbulence around my head  :047:  the airflow hit my helmet around the top of my visor so my head isn't in good clear air  :021: but overall it is an improvement on the standard screen.  It was a bit blustery today, the crossrunner doesn't like side winds much  :003: but when travelling into the wind the results seemed good.

I'm happy with the finish, the edges of the screen look like they are milled to a slight curve.  You can see some tool marks but it's not bad.

I'll report back when I've done a few thousand miles around Scotland  :047:

Just got back from Scotland with my new Puig screen can now cruise at 90+ and my arms are still the same length but by taking the wind blast it does put more weight on your arms and it also directs all the bugs onto your visor

It seems that Scotland is a popular destination for CR riders. Pity I didn't meet any up there this week. Strangely despite owning my CR for a year I have yet to meet up with another one with the exception of the guy who attends the bike meets at our local dealer or even see one out on the road

Ok I've done over 2000 miles with the Puig screen now.

Motorways show up the faults with the screen, it doesn't deflect the air high enough and I get the airstream hitting my helmet at the top of the visor and this creates a bit of turbulance leading to some vibration of my helmet.  The air is almost deflected around my shoulders but no real problems in that area.  Side winds and turbulance from traffic in front causes a lot of turbulance, but an improvement over the standard screen.

On the twisties the screen works well.

What I might try is tilting the screen forward slightly, using some spacers to move out the top mounting points, and see how that works.

I just mounted Puig screen to my CR and I am pretty comfortable for now. But there is a strange noise coming from mounting points. I am sure I fitted the bolts well. Anyone experiencing the same problem? Should I use new plastic washers other than the original Honda's?
