Stock or aftermarket on a 2019 1000
« on: July 25, 2019, 11:06:17 »
Off to test ride a 1000 tomorrow with the view of getting one once my current bike comes back from the repairers. Currently working my way through the “what version, what custom bits do I want “ stage. So far it will be the base red one as I will put Givi luggage and different engine bars on it. Question for you learned lot is do I go for the stock screen and change it for a OEM one or upgrade to the Vario Touring for £150?

It all depends on your height in the saddle and what suits you. Some find the stock screen is OK while others need an alternative screen. But again the "alternative" is still a matter of what suits  you.  Sorry to not give you a definitive yes / no answer which IMHO could be misleading.
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.

lol, forgot! Normally I prefer a taller screen. Had Givi screens on my old DL1000 and XT1200 though the Burgman had one by Puig. Hopefully the demo bike with have the upgraded Suzuki one so I can see what it is like

I upgraded to the Vario screen, direct from Suzuki, a month or so ago. It was on offer on their Site for £105 delivered at the time. Maybe, still is.?

Happy with it, as - for me - it has cured the turbulance, although not really helped much with the wind noise ( although earplugs help, here, anyway)

No matter how big a screen I have had on previous bikes I always have suffered from a bit of wind buff/ noise above 70 mph so I am kind of used to that. It will be interesting to see how the variable tilt thing affects the wind flow etc. The Burgman has the luxury of an electrically adjustable screen. Probably fine for someone shorter than me but I always seem to have mine fully up except when doing slow speed stuff (sub 20 mph) then it is fully down so I can see over it. Roll on this afternoon- test ride time!

I opted for the Givi Airflow after reading comments on this forum and it was money well spent.
