eddd Posted November 12, 2007 Share Posted November 12, 2007 I currently have a stock R1150RT screen on my R1100RT. This shield is quite low; it is only about 19.5 inches tall. I am looking over it at all times unless I put it all the way up and duck down. I use it to keep the wind off my torso, but the top of my helmet is definitely in the wind stream. I like it this way for most riding. I hate looking through a windshield. Now for the question. There are times when riding in strong winds that I get some pretty good head buffeting. I was wondering about the shields that have the flared top. 1. Do these flared top shields reduce/eliminate head buffeting? 2. Does anyone make one that is “short”, somewhere between 19-23 inches as measured right in the middle of the screen? 3. Do these shields still buffet you from the rear when they are up? 4. Any downsides to this type of screen. BTW, I don’t like the wide shields, so I’m looking for something that is about the stock width. Thanks for taking the time to give me some input. Link to comment
