Yeah true ,I seemed to be having no troubles with my stock screen, because since new I installed the screen adjusters and all summer I was riding with it in the lowest position. it just might fix anyone else who is having that jimmy buffeting problem

Madstad screen

Well, after reading through this and the Tiger 800 thread about all the different screens I decided to buy the Madstad screen. Reading about some guys having bought three screens and still not being happy did it for me. The Madstad is infinitely adjustable so I should be able to find a good setting for it. Mark at Madstad was very helpful and recommended the 22" screen as I am 6'3" tall, use the high setting on the seat and sit very upright. I installed the whole thing last night and it fits together beautifully. I did have to bend the additional side deflectors out a little bit to stop them from rubbing against the plastic on the tank, but no biggie. I like the fact that in hot weather I can remove the screen and just ride with the metal mounting plate, which looks pretty good. I am not fashion conscious enough to go as far as to remove the brackets so I would just leave them on. I won't be able to try the thing out until April or so after snow board season has ended. It's -6 celsius here right now and snowing, so I'm off to the hill. It's all good.

Now I just need a better seat. Is there a dedicated seat thread for the Tiger 800? Corbin says they have one "coming soon."
I've found the basic shield to be tolerable, but it could be better. I still need ear plugs, and get some buffeting. Since we are about the same height, I'll ask you, how much difference did you notice between the two screens? I agree the OEM options look best, but if the touring shield wont make much difference, I'll be looking for a less attractive more protective option...

As for the seat, I bought the OEM low gel with the bike and am quite pleased with the comfort it provides. I've not taken any seriously long trips yet, but my daily commute is 1 hour each way, with no discomfort what so ever!

Tiger 800 windshields

So I've got the stock windscreen in a box, the adjustable touring windscreen on the bike, more happy but not stoked. Anybody thought/tried piggy-backing the stock on top of the touring? If I can figure out a way to test it without drilling any/many holes I may give it a test. Up, out and away, and over the other. Adjustable, similar, potential, opinions?? Homemade

I'm the same as you as far as what I have on the bike and in the box.

Hadn't given any thought to your solution but would be interested to see what you come up with.

So, if I'm reading this right, there is very little difference between the stock and touring windscreens? I was hoping for more from the touring screen, glad I haven't purchased it yet...

Nice Triumph sticker fbj913, looked like a great afternoon to ride too!

They are the Acerbis Rally Pro. I then cut the top off of the stock guards and zip tied it to the Acerbis for some wind protections. It actually works very well. Acerbis makes a lip that goes on the Rally Pro's that I will eventually buy.

Thanks. Looking forward to some more pics and updates as you pile on the miles with this setup. This looks like the best option on the market.
