DL650 - Standard Screen and 6ft tall?
« on: September 14, 2019, 13:06:55 »
My Learned Brethren,,

Any advice on the right screen for me please: DL650 - Standard Screen and 6ft tall?

Do I go for an aftermarket add-on to the original (which I prefer the idea/look of), or should I just forget such fancy (possibly cheapskate) ideas and get a touring screen?

Thanks for your advice / experience.

Art

I am just short of 6'2" and find the original, standard screen on my V -650 fine.

What year of DL650? I had a 2009 and it was fine once I had fitted an MRA lip to it. I'm a little bit over 6 foot...
Old enough to know better, but still too young to care...

It's a 2006 bike - and I have the screen fully up.

I just experience the buffeting at >80 mph occasionally, with a very gently (but continual) giggling of my head, which I know on long journeys is a recipes for headaches / disorientation etc..

Hello Brett, I have a mate who is 6.4, but when we sit next to each other we're the same height (he's all legs), maybe something like that is happening here for me.  :shrug:

cheers

Well it may not be normal - but I'm going to answer my own question:

This is what I was looking for https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00GA35PCO/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza

Puig 4639W Deflector, Adjustable Transparent Windscreen

That's better!

I got one for £25, which must have been an Amazon return - which was in perfect nick.
