after naffing about with the standard screen , all positions, tilting using spacers , mirror extenders,thought of getting the dremel to it to shorten it as I've read this can work for some,  took it off today no buffeting but very  noisy so rather than buying every screen available I'm going for the rated airflow however the kappa is slightly cheaper than the givi , am I right that both are operated by the same family so are exactly the same product?

Identical, I'd say, apart from the words Givi and Kappa.

kappa airstream arrived this week first chance I've had today to get out and test it. very impressed ,its transformed the bike for me anyway . I got it from Fuorigiriweb (italy) on amazon. I've no ties with them but got it for £92.60 + free delivery. so anyone wants a givi airflow and save a few ££s its a good price.

Echo the above, bought the same screen for my 2013 Glee, massive difference. Worth the expenditure.

I don't have any experience with other wind screens as I'm fairly new to motorcycling, but I've got the same screen on my 2012 Glee, and the wind buffeting is basically non-existent. My height is 178 cm (uh, 5'10"?). I almost always have it all the way up because it's just so comfortable. And the mechanism to move it up and down is extremely easy and convenient.
I like M&Ms - motorcycles and metal 🤘
