Default Just installed AeroFlow Windscreen

The Tall AeroFlow Sport Half Fairing didn't quite do it for me, so I went with the Extra Tall. Today was my first day, so I'll add to this thread after a week or so to let you know how I'm liking it.

Looks great! I loved mine so much I took it off my 05 and put it on my 011.

I have the XT touring on my 2012 1200gsa. I am 6'3 34" inseam. Liked the screen initially but loved it after I tweaked it. I have it tilted all the way back towards me and with a 12" strip of Saeng micro swirl edging on the top of the screen. The screen's top edge is about even with my chin to lower lip area. I like riding with the screen lower and the bike seems to be much more stable in crosswinds. In fact, it is almost immune to crosswinds. Feels more sporty and quicker with the shield back. The Saeng put the final "finish" on the smoothing out the air/noise. The Saeng raises the airflow a few more inches to the point I do not have the vent air noise in my helmet vents. No buffeting at all and turbulence from cars and trucks is improved. Riding along, I can pull off the Saeng edging and wind noise is back instantly. I did try putting Saeng edging around the screen but the wafting from car/truck turbulence was increased. Across the top is optimal. Also, I do get a nice gentle breeze in the cockpit. Very happy. Much much much better than the Touratech extender I tried.

I do wear audiologist custom ear plugs when I ride. I know about windshield hunts coming from a V-strom where I spent $100's of dollars on windshields but in the end sold the bike. Aeroflow is the way to go.

Spencershea, can you post a picture of your windscreen with the Saeng micro swirl edging? If you only place it across the top of the windscreen, how do you keep it from coming off at 80 mph? And how many inches is across the top? Thanks!

Even at 90mph the Saeng has not moved. It is a snug fit. I also carry a spare just in case... Here are a couple of pic's I had on my iphone. You can see the edging at the top. Really not that noticeable and you get used to it pretty quick. The edging is about 12". I think 10-12" is about right.

Thanks for the pics. Looks great. I'm going to give it a try. Although, the AeroFlow has significantly reduced buffeting for me as is. I'll let you know how it works out.

Agreed. The aeroflow by itself was a very significant improvement over stock and stock with touratech extender. The Saeng edging just added the finishing touch- for me. ... I am done thinking about windscreens!
