I went with Laminar, and am satisfied.





Edit July 23: "satisfied" as in it seems to work. I do believe there are probably even better ways to mount and better sizes to fit to the DR650. IMHO, I'm not afraid of the Velcro tabs letting go, but at 85 MPH + I can see it push back the DR's plastic fairing a bit, and in as far as height, why... I guess I even it could be taller and bigger.

Low budget Wally World trash can screen

Here's what I came up with after finding inspiration on another forum. I already had the velcro and the trash can was <$5 so i figured I couldn't go wrong. Work well at 65. I think it's a little two tall so I'm going to trip it down a bit, but not bad for a budget wind screen.

You may just need to go LOWER-budget. Do you or any friends/family own an indoor cat perhaps, and would it's name happen to be "LavaBunz Jr."?

i went for the Madstad setup
pics here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...1&postcount=55

since it's fully adjustable i found he perfect position w/ no buffeting at any speed.
i replaced the regular nuts and bolts w/ thumb nuts on the robo brackets, so i can remove the robo brackets & sceen as 1 piece in minutes and have just the brackets that attach to the bike left on.

i can go from full on wind-protected tour mode to day-riding dirt mode very quickly so know I have 2 types of bikes. with the screen on it still works great in the dirt, does not get in the way and I stand up just fine. the Madstad provides much needed wind protection for long rides and colder weather. I've also ridden a long way to a rally then camped and pulled of the robo bracket/screen and gone day riding in my off-road mode.

everything other screen is a compromise IMO. if they are too small they don't work well at hiways speeds and if they are too big (& stay on the bike) they are in the way when riding off-road.

I think I'm wishing i had gone with the Madstad over the Laminar. Maybe I have the laminar on the bike wrong, but it doesn't seem to do as much as I'd hope a screen would do.

MadStad

elkins is right ....

The MadStad set-up gives such a great range of adjustment, both in heigth and tilt --- most all will find a windscreen position that works for them.

Mine:







TCI bracket, Cee baileys main sheild, Laminar top. For me the Laminar was too small, and the Cee baileys was good, but gave me some nasty helmet noise. I found a good position and bolted it all together. Works great at any speed. The TCI bracket gives some flow behind the shield for air flow so it doesn't get too hot. Its not as much of a barn door as the parabellum is, and it does't move around at all at highway speeds. Its about 3 inches below my eye level. Only extra thing I want to do it add thumb screws and wing nuts, so I can take it off quickly if I want.

Ooh, and as for the tint.. that was just because I bought 1 with tint first, and the other without. I have some car tint lying around. eventually I will tint the Cee baileys shield.

I just acquired on of these djebel cowls for my DR350 (still shipping) Was wondering why they are not more popular as it was an OEM part.
