You know how it feels so good when you stop banging your head against a wall? Nice!!! Maybe the Japanese didn't figure on anyone over 5 feet tall, I don't know,.. but the stock windscreen creates a Cat-5 hurricane in the face at any speed over 50mph if you're 5'11'' like me. I cried inside to remove such a curvaceous piece of sexy architecture from my scooter, but Oh! What a Relief!! I feel like I'm whooshing and swooping like a bird of prey now; all that slamming and buffeting to the helmet I endured during this first week of ownership has literally given me such ringing in my ears I couldn't sleep. My ears are still ringing right now, like a pack of sex-starved cicadas took up residence in my skull.
Anyway, I can't wait to finally enjoy my commute home this evening, and then the whole weekend spread out before me (like a patient etherized on a table, you're thinking) ...let's see: I think the Scenic Route around Lake Mead to Valley of Fire is calling out to me.

The stock windscreens stink regardless of the model from what I gather. They seem to be squarely in the middle between wind in your chest and helmet buffetting central.

You either need it gone or to get a bigger one...or vent it with shims.

Most people do go bigger, but that gets hot in the summertime too.

I guess ideally they'd come with a little one for hot weather and a larger than OEM for the cold. Personally I'm getting a larger (taller and wider), vented one for cold and will stick with the OEM in its lowest position for the summer.

it DOES seem that the screens are built for Japanese heights, but the seat is built for AMERICAN beehinds,

I have a 400 and removed the WS once, when I took the bike to the dealer for a Rectifier recall. The ride wasn't bad.
Now I have a GIVI one-piece which is taller than the stock turbulence-generator. Pleasant riding but 5% penalty in MPG. Overall, I'll keep it.

For my previous Silverwings and 2008 Burg 400s, I replaced the stock wind screens with Cee Bailey screens that were two inches taller. It made such a big difference. When I bought my 2015 Burg 400, they had apparently improved the screen because it didn't flutter like the 08 screens had so I left it alone. Now that I bought a 2020 Burg 200, I found that the stock screen is perfect for me. I had kept the Laminar Lip extenders for both the 400 and the S'wing and it turns out that the one for the S'wing will fit the B200's screen.
