    650mm Screen

    I am seriously thinking about getting the 650mm windscreen offered by Power Bronze.  That is 26 inches tall!!  I am relatively tall at 6'2" but have a long torso.  The windscreen on my TTSE is good but when fully extended I get buffeting on my back.  I'm certain that a taller windscreen would cure that.  Additionally,  I am not to "keen" about the shape of the screen which dishes out the center of the windscreen, why?  Anyone else want to jump in with comments about the stock screen v getting the taller screen mentioned?

    Just a thought!
    Regards,
    Gary

    Gary, you may want to look at the National Cycle V-Stream N20608 Triumph Trophy Screen. Excellent protection, and as I'mm 6' 1" in height I find that with the screen all the way up I'm looking through it about 5" from the top. It's big, but certainly doesn't create any buffeting. The wife prefers it fully raised when she accompanies me on rides. I have it fully raised when on straighter/ freeway roads but down when in twisty sections so I can look over the top without the distortion that the edges bring. My price here in Australia was $329.00. Excellent fitting instructions and it is made out of Hard Coated Lexan Polycarbonate. I have had one of V-Stream screens on my BMW R1200GSA as well as my BMW R1200RT and had no hesitation in fitting another to my Trophy. All the best in your choice. I do agree that the standard screen created an air flow that pushes you in the back as well as creating turbulence for a pillion round the head and shoulders. The V-Stream alleviates both these problems. Cheers.  :821:

    I agree that the V-Stream is a great choice. I installed the N20607 earlier this month and I'm very happy with it. I got a great deal compared to what it's selling for now (I paid $154), and on a recent ride to South Dakota it performed much better than I expected.

    Hey Guys,

    Thank for the info on this screen!  Sounds like the better way to go and will take care of the rear buffeting and also will take care of my pillion!

    Best Wishes,
    Gary

    Hey, I went to the website and they had a video comparing acrylic to polycarbonate.  I am never going to have an acrylic shield.  They shatter with about everything from a rock to a shot gun whereas the poly justs shucks off the impact and doesn't shatter but absorbs the impact!  Thoroughly enjoyed the information on this great screen you recommended.

    Regards,
    Gary

    I priced the 24" screen with National Cycle and it is $240 US.  Not a bad price!  They show a video from using a slingshot to using a shotgun against the polycarbonate screen and it did not break or shatter like all the acrylic shields did.  I was quite impressed!!
