    Let us know how it turns out Flux! If they build you a screen be sure to post a shot of it. If it turns out nice, then I'm a buyer for one.

    I am 6'4" and have a Renazco seat with almost no slope. I have a 2003 with no fairing mod and I feel the wind on my helmet but whatever hits my torso doesn't seem to bother me. Maybe it is hitting me but I don't notice? :dunno

    My Renazco seat is also pretty flat. When the weather was warmer, I didn't notice the breeze that much. But, when the temps dip below the mid 40s and travelling on the highway I notice it a lot. With some of the mods I've done and those that Zerdog did to the suspension, I'm really liking this bike.

    The Laminar screen looks to be like something I am looking for.

    Good info here. Thanks all. I would be riding my '06 much more up heya in New Hampshire with better wind/rain/snow deflection. This latest shield is best yet seen and price is acceptable.
    Where did you buy tank guard?

    Hey, Can Fly! I was walking around here and I noticed you have asked about tank guards. It's uncommon nobody has answered you, it's not this forum's normal behave. I think may be nobody has read your question before.

    Better late than never ... just in case you haven't bought yet, visit the following pages, they are all related to tank protection and more:

    I've been running the Laminar Lip on my 640 Adventure for about 3 months.

    It definitely helps make the bike more pleasant while seated, but only when used with a tank bag.

    I usually have tank bag on the bike, but when I took it off last week, I noticed a very significant increase in turbulence around my head while seated and traveling above 40 mph with the Laminar Lip in place. At 60-65 mph, the buffeting around the helmet was so severe the leading edge of my Arai XD visor was actually fluttering.

    I put the tank bag back on and the wind noise and turbulence dropped significantly.

    BTW, I see GSteve also has a tank bag in his picture above.

    That's quite an unsuspected and wierd air flux, BillyD ... :eek1
    I can't tell about this laminar lip, since I have a different windshield, but I try to think how come the air radically changes its behaviour with vs without the tank bag and I can hardly imagine ...

    Did you check your position with and without the tank bag? may be you seat forwards without the tank bag, due to the available space, and backwards with the bag installed ... and this cuold make some difference.

    Let's see what have to say the other laminar flips users :ear
    The other option ... well, it's a shrink :rofl
