Puig Screen Visor
« on: 11 August, 2018, 04:59:37 PM »
Hi All,

I have a Puig screen on my 2011 CBF1000 which looks the part and does an excellent job up 65mph. Anything over 65mph and I get a lot of buffering and wind noise, if I crouch down about 50mm then its a different world, no wind, no noise - brilliant.  I have tried various screen positions, the highest position is the best.
My question is: Will fitting a visor to the Puig screen help, or is it a case of fitting a touring screen.
Many thanks

I'm thinking of the Puig, so your post has my attention.

Can I ask how tall you are

I am 5' 8" so not that lanky! I have been checking out some of the E-bay offerings, Puig are very expensive but the fittings look better than some of the cheaper alternatives from China.

That's  the same height as me, so the Puig may have to be deleted from my list. Time to research the Ernax and Powerbronze.

I take it you have your seat on the lowest setting

Yep, the seat on the lowest setting.  Check out the MRA Screen from bikehps (E-bay shop) about £104 and it has an adjustable wind deflector.

Rather than another screen you could try Palmer adjustable brackets. This will enable you to increase the height and angle of your existing screen.
I combined Palmer brackets with an MRA vario and very pleased with the result. I'm 5'9" by the way.

Thanks for the info.

I didn't even know such a thing existed, but having looked on their website may well give them a call.

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?

I removed my Puig screen this morning just to get a look at the brackets. I noticed the adjustment was only about 100m from the lowest setting, I moved the screen up to this position by gripping both sides of the screen and lifting it up. With the screen removed I was able to move each bracket up to the highest position, about another 120mm I then re-fitted the screen. I am pretty sure this maximum adjustment wasn't possible with the screen fitted! Haven't had a chance for a test ride yet, maybe later today...  Hopefully, this extra adjustment will solve the problem of wind buffeting.
