Reading the V-Stream site, I am impressed with the technical explanation of the van Karman vortex and how it impacts the rider. From this explanation, this screen seems ideal, yet some reports would say it doesn't work.
In fact, the more I read about windscreens, the more difficult it is to choose. There are riders who've bought 2, 3 or 4 (and more!) windscreens, attempting to silence the F800ST noise monster, without success.
There's GOT to be a better way.
Would like all the V-Stream reviews (16" and 19" models) I can get. Please...and thanks.
I have the 19" one, which is a lot better than stock. I do wear eye plugs too.
I know you meant "ear plugs", so I won't make the obvious wise crack. How long have you had the 19" and can you provide some detail about how it feels compared to stock. Thanks.

I like the stock screen better. V stream does silence and gives wind protection, but we have LOTS of crosswinds out here, and it acts a bit like a sail sometimes.
PM me if you are interested in buying it. I can't decide whether to see or keep it and try again.
So far, I don't mind the wind.
Thanks for the offer, but...

Also hear some favorable stuff about Puig racing screen for the "S", which I assume would work on the "ST" model.
opps! I have had the 19" for two now , the wind now hides the top of my head instead of the center of my chest. Madstead or Aeroflow, I would go if did a do over, and don't complain about the COST!
