I have a givi on order for the cold that's coming. but man, this bike is WAYYY better with no windscreen!! I TRUELLY GOT TO ENJOY THE ENGINE for the first time in 1000 miles . stock handle bars pulled to top and stock seat . i was going to give up on it that's how bad it is.my helmets are shoei quest and a zx 12 with bottom curtain from England and i wear a nylon pulldown not to sweat in my helmets. just thought id share!!

    no I don't. I don't like the underwater feeling of hearing i get from them. Hard to describe I guess ? I have tried but I feel disconnected with them. Put over 100k on 3 busas(combined) 30k on a zrx (bikini fairing) with the same setups and NEVER had this problem. I am praying the big givi gets the air up enough for cold weather riding .but at least I have next summer to look forward to without any shield if need be.i find the vtec to be more fun than my big bore bikes, as I get to ring it out alot and its fun as all heck. I was dreading having to sell it if I couldn't find a fix.

    I ran with a new windscreen for almost a year. The only difference is when you get above 80 miles an hour gets a little "tuggy--wants to pull you off!

    If you can't see fit to pull the plug on a headlight could you do the same for SOW. We here on the other side of the pond would be most grateful.. :)

    M'thinks riding withoot the windscreen would be no worse or better than riding a bike that didn't come with a windscreen or fairing to begin with.

    to not listen to the wolf over the BB troll would bee a big mistake, if you run one headlight then you now have a spare light, your charging system has one less thing to run:alien:

    Clean air blowing by is better than the focused stuff on my head ,winter riding will suck if the givi doesn't help
