On Friday I am getting my warranty work done which include a replacement screen assembly. After that I shall get the Calsci screen. It looks good and I have had good reports about them.

I'm also 5' 9" and have the larger Trophy screen with the protective coating which works well, makes for easier cleaning. Have ridden through a lot of rain and it keeps me well protected. No issues as others have reported re water coming over/round the screen. (Maybe they had the standard screen? Can't remember)

I have the standard screen and in heavy rain it does tend to come over the top. Not a big problem though.

I am 6 foot exactly and have the standard screen. It is normally set quite high.

I only get the vortex of water in heavy rain and I have to be honest I do what I can to avoid riding then! LOL

Hunting away on e-Bay today ( as you do ) I came across this:

Laminar Lip

Anyone got one / tried one / thoughts ?

The other half has something similar on his K1300S. He thinks it works really well at directing airflow away and over his head.

I have the high Triumph touring screen and it's fine. I'm almost 6'2''. In fact there's less buffeting at speed than there was on my previous LT with high screen and Laminer Lip.
