Aftermarket windscreen

Ok, so I've pretty much narrowed it down to two different windscreens. Cee Bailey and Aeroflo. Anyone have experience with one or the other that might want to share? They are pretty much the same price. Although I am just 72" I'm inclined to get the taller of the screens. After my recent trip out west the stock screen must go before any more long adventures.

Cee Bailey


Aeroflow

MRA Vario screen is brilliant for me at 5'8" and it's not too tall. The spoiler makes it act like a much bigger screen

I am 6' tall and have the tall Aero that works well.

I also installed the Cymark R1200GSA LC Adjustable Screen Strengthening Brackets (Pair) in Black

Are you suggesting the Aeroscreen might need additional support?

They seem simple enough to install

For taller windscreens I would add the additional brackets. The Cymark support on both sides.

I've had a National Cycle VStream on my BMW LC for the last 30K mile no issues except added wind pressure at speed prevents adjustments. But I'm 6'1" and stock shield blasted me and VStream is just right at maximum height adjustment.

Just put the aero flow on two weeks ago. I am 76" and the difference between it and the stock screen are dramatic.

Riders, I'm 73" and this is a great thread. Thinking of the same. Now I do enjoy the clear visibility and the air seems to be clean, shoulders and chest are fine, but boy you get a blast. Need to use ear plugs with my Shoei Neotec.

I replaced the stock screen with a Puig 6486 on my '14 GSA. The difference in comfort at higher speeds is indisputable. No strengthening brackets. The screen does bend a little in response to wind pressure, but not so much as to cause concern.
