Had a chance to test out the fairing yet? I'm 5'8" so I'm really interested to hear if you're experiencing any buffeting at speed.

Hi dl, no unfortunately I haven't made it back to the US since I did the install. I'll keep you posted, but it may be the summer before I make it back to the States. :sad:

I hope the CeeBaily works out ok, because I really don't like the buffeting I was experiencing with the Eagle Screen. Otherwise, I'm going back to no screen at all.

Best Regards, Fred


Thanks, looking forward to hearing how it goes!
Finally had a chance to ride with the CeeBaily (installed with 10mm spacers between the windscreen and the headlight shroud). Happy to report that I only have a minimal, acceptable difference in air flow turbulence. No buffeting at all, and much reduced air flow at the chest area.

I will need to add brackets to the headlight shroud. It's just too wobbly, especially on rough terrain or rough roads.

Sorry it took so long to respond!

Best Regards, Fred

I have the exact same windscreen on my DR. It is awesome! Not too tall, great for commuting and still I can stand up off-road with no issues at all. I did weld up some stays to support the headlight shroud. Mounted to top bolts of the screen to the top bolts on the handle bar clamps. That fixed the wobble 100%! Now it's extremely solid. I got the screen in clear.

I'm 6'3" with a 34-36 inseam, and I've been considering this windscreen. How do you think it would work with my height? :s_dunno

I bought one of these but have not installed it yet. Typical me...it's been 6 months. Anybody got pictures of what they did to brace the fly screen?

That is a sharp looking deflector screen. Adding the standoff's was a good idea. I know it helps create a low speed area with some of the other brand screens, like Madstaad. Seems like it would help a little with keeping a touch of wind in your face without it being the full blast. I might have to check into one of these!!

You inspired me. Mine is on now. It looks good. I may take a black sharpie to the nylon bolts.

PS: I didn't think it was possible for someone to use worse fasteners than Suzuki. I need to get to the depot and get something else stat.

I just installed the sport deflector today and went for a ride. Huge improvement over the DIY trash can shield I had before. Made some stabilizing brackets so now it's nice and solid. It improved the twitchy wobble at freeway speed by 40%.

Thinking of one of these too -
It would be great to see what you whipped up for stabilizing it.
Thanks,
George

This is what I came up with. Aluminum stock twisted to match angle of fly shield and handle bar guard mounts. Solid

At 5'9" with spacers under the upper bolts and grommets under the lower bolts I am getting some helmet noise. Lifting up and inch makes it go away. I'm going to pull the spacers and see if that gets it. I'd really hate to start chopping up my pretty new screen.
