|LAS||[RIGHT]Thanks for the feedback. I still haven’t decided on a screen for winter. I have not found the VStream sport to cause much buffeting. It doesn’t block much air, which is a problem in cold weather, but what hits me is clean.|

I've been going through various windscreens with my Puig electric unit & here's my findings:
Stock screen distorts my view (works well otherwise).
VStream Touring screen is way to big.
VStream Sport screen: too much buffeting on highway.
I returned both VStreams.
Got a Calsci and it's really nice except it doesn't work well with the Puig electric unit. Air comes through the vent in the middle of the screen and hits the Puig unit such that you get an intolerable whooshing noise. Mark at Calsci is letting me return it for one he'll make without the vent. He's also going to cut it down a couple of inches as it's too tall for me as is.
Hope this helps!

|Gdoss||Anyone, particular those over 6’3” have the Puig ERS with a tall screen? Very interested in your impressions.|

I hope this helps.

For those who have this unit, I can't tell via the video, where the controls are mounted. I have the GSA, so I have the aux lamp controls where the left side mirror is mounted. There doesn't appear to be a lot of room on the handlebars. Can't someone either take a pic of what this looks like or explain. I just came back from a 500 mile ride in a heavy rain/wind combo, I would have liked to have had a similar screen as my K1600 has, so I might spring for this unit and install during the winter months.
Thanks for the help

New perspective on a windscreen...

|LAS||No, the Puig unit is bolted to the bike on both sides. The windscreen is well supported and does not vibrate or shake.|

|LAS||No bracing needed. No shake either. The windscreen is very stable at any speed.|

For those of you that have installed the PUIG electric windscreen, do you still need bracing for the larger windscreens? Do it cause windscreen to shake at higher speeds? I have a Givi screen and it has additional bracing.

This is a fantastic bike. On/off throttle is much smoother than the RS I had, the quick shifter is better and it's definitely quicker. I also am liking the shorter and higher reach the Installed Helibar risers are giving me.
