Just fitted some tucano urbano muffs and they are fabulous, with the heated grips no cold hands and no draughts either, thoroughly recommend

No, although I'm still tempted to cut down one of my cracked CalSci's to the same size and shape as the OEM screen, just to try it.
The vent is there to prevent the back pressure and resulting turbulence off the top of the screen, which is not so much of a problem if it's at chest height.
Mike,if you cut down one of the screens,I would stillmake it highr thatn the OEM by about 3 inches. If that did not work, you can stilltrimit back tothe same height as the OEM....bit difficult togo the other way.
As has been pointed out before on this forum,I am also a firm beleiver that the with is possibly more critical than the height
I might be mad or even slightly insane....but I LOVE my CBF1000GT

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rukka-GTX-3Fingers-Motorcycle-Motorbike-Gloves-Black-/141274819375   Searched around for offers, found them for less, have the thinner Spada version and they're pretty good, the Rukka's are even better!
Formerly an EMT (1), now a Superintendent, not that makes any difference, still just as crazy...
I ride for pleasure, commute mostly by PTW, do most of my own spannering.
Started to do my IAM, having done the RoSPA version years ago, seems I'm not fast enough, unlike the Chief Observer I'm not prepared to do 50+ in a 40 limit, so I've given it up as a bad job, 'too slow to pass, too old to care'!
