Thans for the reply. I don't know how common H1s are on motorcycles, but like I said, my 640 Adventure needs two, and my 1150GS adventure needs two as well--so there's $240...

I will say that in clean air, the XD-4 is perfect. So when I stand on the bike, it is very nice. I think the buffeting sensitivity has been an issue since the original XD.
