Hello to all, I have now had the burgerking for about 3 weeks and have put about 700 miles on it 8) . but when I get on the highway, the helmet buffering is horrible. the stock shield allows the wind to bounce my helmet around, the wind is loud. not a good experience on the highway. I am not a big person, 5' 7" at about 180lbs. I see the posts for windshields and read most of them. My question is simple. I need a windshield that is about 4 inches taller than the stock 650 shield.
Givi, or clearview. I dont need a huge discussion, and would like to hear from those that have either of these on it. I found the givi for about $119 us, is this tall enough for my hight?

thanks to everybody. sorry if I sound frustrated. I have a headach from riding on the highway today at 70mph, helmet being buffered badly.

thanks :roll:

This subject has been tossed around so much....
I have niether of those windscreens as each of them will act as an air brake. And at your height those shields might be overkill. Instead, I went with the Saeng Wing Tips http://www.saeng.com/2117.htm which not only do the job, they're adjustable "on the fly". I can't tell you how handy this is come in. On hot days I WANT the wind in my face. On the highway I don't want the wind. I can adjust it while I'm driving to give me just the right amount of wind or none at all. The Givi, Clearview, Gustaffson and other replacement screens are just big air brakes. My two cents.

Use search at the top of the page and search on the terms "windscreen' and 'windshield' and you get tons of information. The feel I get from the posts is that the Clearview is slightly preferred over the Givi. The Clearview also now has the option for a factory installed vent.

Givi dimensions are 31" by 26". You'd probably be looking through it. Clearview comes in four different sizes. They will email you the dimensions on request.

I am using a large Clearview with vent. It has reduced helmet buffeting by about 70%. The wind no longer peels the lips back from my teeth, my hands are better shielded, and the jet stream hits the top half of my helmet giving me better airflow through the vents.

I need some wind on my face when I ride and the large has made highway trips much more enjoyable. The vent is nice for directing some extra air at my body or face, but was probably not as necessary on the large size as it would be on the xl or xxl.

The Clearview looks great (I will try to get some pics this week).

Forum member Burg650 (Roger) uses a Laminer lip and seems to love it. He can even ride without eyeware if he likes.

I have noticed NO change/reduction in handling or mileage, just the added comfort.

thanks

thanks to everybody that read and posted for this. I have decided to go with the givi for a simple reason. The "freezer factor". For those that dont know about this let me explain. I live north of Boston MA. The temp this morning, 9/05/04 was 42 degrees F when I left this morning. It is currently 38 degrees out there now. add in a wind of 35 -45 mph, and you get a windchill of around 20 deg. So for my cold weather riding (fall/spring) I will use the givi, high enough that it will have the wind over me, with ample hand protection against the cold. and when the warmer weather comes in, ill pop on the stock deflector.

happy scootering :)

In addition to being cold, it looks like you guys are a month behind too!

Its called the wind chill effect - creates a distortion in the space time continium - can only be rectified with dilithium crystals and a good old shake of the rotating plasmatic convertor. :) :wink: :lol:

In another month I will put the Givi back because it is getting cold in Houston now...below 75 in the morning. My mesh jacket and gloves are already in storage.
