Unless you have the big fairing and screen of a proper big touring bike you will always face some compromise with wind protection and buffeting. Personally I find the Puig to be pretty good.
The up/down adjustability gives you some choice about the protection/buffeting balance point. I tend to put it higher for long journeys on fast roads and down for more relaxed enjoy-the-scenery type riding.
Earplugs, though, are a must and I nearly always have them in.

Can't understand how the Palmer baffle does not affect the performance of the screen on the brackets. I thought the idea of the brackets was to create a bigger gap between the screen and the fairing cowl to allow more airflow up the back of the screen.

I didn't know they existed either! Would have bought this had I known. Looks to be rather a big gap at the bottom of the screen, what is it like in the rain? I see Palmer produce a screen baffle for the winter, which suggests maybe that the elements come up from below the screen. Your views please Mr Brown?

Tommo, only noticed your comment now, 4 months later so apologies for that.
There is a gap at the bottom but this serves to reduce buffeting and wind noise. I can ride 80mph very comfortably. Personally I don't see the need for the baffle, the screen still puts the wind/rain around and over me.

I have some Palmer brackets for a mk2 CBF1000FA screen for sale if anybody is interested. Good as new with all the easily adjustable fittings.
