    How does this setup work for you? I just bought a new 2017 SA-T and the buffeting of the stock screen makes 5’10” me look like a bobble head going down the freeway.

    I finally figured out that if I held my right hand up near the right hand top of the windscreen when at its highest position, all buffeting went away. I haven’t tried it at the lower positions yet because the bike is still unregistered in Utah (flew to WA state last week and rode it home).

    It works perfectly for me (6’0”).

    I’ve wound the screen to the highest level, then just fine adjust the screen spoiler.

    Tested it in France a couple of weekends ago, and after 700km decided it was spot on

    Has anyone is the US purchased an SAS screen for their SAR? Are they available from the dealer?

    I was going to but it was $165. I'm looking at other options right now.

    I did, it was $123 at rockymountainatv. An improvement, but at 6'4 I think it needs a bit more height.

    Can't find it on that site. They have one windshield made by ktm but it's for smaller bikes. Did you search by ktm part number?

    I found it via their OEM parts pages. But I just tried it and it's not orderable. Shows on the picture as #1, but there is no row for #1. I attached a pic of my order, I'd just call rmatv.

    Bringing this thread back from the dead. Has there been any development on new screens? So far the options seem to include: KTM SAS, Givi, Puig touring or shorty, the Ermax screens (which there are no pictures of) and then the hideous but practical Cal Sci screens. I'm only 5'11" and I'm looking for something closer to the SAS screen in height but with some level of smoke.

    My Givi is still working for me in the Summer months. No need to go back to stock for the hot weather.

    I snapped my Calsi in half, going under a tree. Don't really miss it for the summer, but I'll have to look into something for the colder months.

    Well I messaged Ermax as they have an "original" size screen for the SAS available on their website, but no pics. I'll see what they respond. They offer 4 different levels of tint also which is nice.

    I have a CalSci shorty and it works pretty well for me. I tried the XL first but it was too big, even though according the size chart that's what I should use. But I like the shorty pretty well.

    Do you have any photos you could add? Their website only has one head on pic

    I'm still on the fence with my Puig. I'm happy I got it but there is some buffetting around my head. Still way better than stock though.

    I’ve made the same evaluation.
    There’s quite some buffeting but even with that is is way quieter behind the tall Puig than behind the stock one.

    Very pleased with my Puig light tinted. I’m 6’1” but long waisted with only 32” inseams. The Puig gives me excellent coverage and buffeting protection while slabbing/commuting. The rotti/Arrow mirrors may help there a little bit. Overall, still looks pretty good.

    Only downside is if I’m going predominately gnarly on a ride, I bring back the stock screen. Doing whoops on the R + Puig the windscreen see-saws to close to my helmet for comfort. It does help bat branches and leaves away, so not all bad.
