    Windscreen F800GS a few choices left... Touratech, Moose Racing, Givi, VStream

    I am 5'8" and ride a lowered f800GS. I get a lot of wind noise in my Shoei RF-SR helmet. Thinking a windscreen may make a difference. Looking at the Moose Racing +4, the Large Touring Touratech, Givi 333DT, and the Stream Z2492.

    Has anyone tried any of these? Thoughts?

    Thank you!

    I had the Givi 333DT on my bike for a while, it had good coverage, but I needed more length for my 6' frame. I ended up with a Madstad instead, which I much prefer because of the adjustability. It's easy to drop when the temps get warm and I'm riding slow.

    Is a windscreen even worth it? Will it provide any comfort to buffering and wind noise in helmet?

    Also would you go clear or tinted shield?

    I found it tremendously helpful in blocking both wind and noise, but I had to find the right windscreen to do it (hence the adjust-ability of the Madstad). The little flair wings on side also help a lot for both wind and noise.

    I have the light grey tint, as I bought the screen/mounts used. Color wasn't that important to me, as I don't look through the screen while riding.


    There may be some pictures here of my build

    Puig

    I've had good luck on a few bikes with the PUIG brand screens. Looking at both revzilla and Puig sites it appears its no longer made. Great screen and I did 20k miles with that screen, I liked it enough I've put their screens on two subsequent bikes and have one on my 850GSA now too.
