I've got the Triumph Tall adjustable screen but would like something wider to help keep the wind off my shoulders.

information is on their website.

I'll bet this works well. I used a Puig "Up&Down" on my Scrambler and that was superb with the top bit being height adjustable.

Need more info on this screen, adjustment. I did 436 miles yesterday and the wind noise was a little rough at times. Do you have additional photos from the side? Thanks in advance.

Yeah this one is nice but very pricey, $399 I think. The model I have is almost to tall. I wouldn't want to go any taller.

No, because it's a photo from the Givi website. http://www.givi.co.uk/Screens--spoilers/AIRFLOW/AF6401
I was only contributing to the screen discussion by passing it on.

No, and for the UK buyer I've just found this http://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php?topic=1837.15 DK motorcycles are offering a discount for "tiger800" forum members down to 149.99 with free posting within the UK.
All we need now is to hear from someone that's actually used one.

I personally don't want something so complex. I want something that is functional but that I don't have to screw with all the time. The extra piece that moves around would just drive me nuts. And it just makes the front of the bike look to busy. The bike is pretty simple as it is with not a lot of parts. I want to keep it that way...

Inmate cjracer is making some nice racks for the Tiger 800.


I don't think they are listed on his website yet, but he will gladly send pics and prices if you PM him.

Yeah, decals aren't perfect but I like 'em. Thought about trying them on the plastics but they ended up on the tank. So if you see me on the road or in the desert somewhere you'll know which one I am, on the adventure tiger.
