I've got one of these flyscreens on the bike I bought, and I'm curious as to if it actually does anything besides keep the speedo clean. My google-fu must be off, and searching the forums didn't yield much, but I'm 6'1" and I can't imagine that this little thing "keeps the wind off me." Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like this ends up being more cosmetic than functional.

I am pleased with the wind protection the Givi A240 provides.

I think it's stylish, too.

I have a similar Suzuki fly screen on my first gen.



I like it. IMO, it helps take a bit of air pressure off my chest at highway speed, while leaving my helmeted head in clean air. It's useless for weather protection, though. FYI, I am 5' 10" tall.

+1. Ride into a headwind and it definitely blunts the impact. At 6'1'' you won't find anything large enough to hide your helmet from the wind.
Closest I've seen comes from Parabellum and costs $600! My Rifle SuperSport is a close second for half the price.

Hey OrganDonor, I would hate for your name to become prophetic. Have you given any thought to the idea of your face or chest coming into contact with your flyscreen at a high velocity? Ouch. Maybe you could use some "break-away" or nylon bolts to secure it? And round off some of those corners... Sometimes flimsy is good LOL
