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!!
