Thanks Art,

I'm also convinced about the inadequacies of the stock windshield so will make a move on that. Did you install the Givi FT with adjustable blade?

Bairdb,

  You might also want to investigate the Kappa windshield. There was quite a bit of discussion about it that you can see by using the search box in the upper left corner.

Kappa and GIVI same----maybe price difference. Givi is more commonly available in US.

John,
I forgot to ask, where did you get your adjustable windshield? Not sure if I will need it but, if so would like to know how yours worked out.
Thanks
Welcome to the most friendly place on earth. Normally. Ha
I just wanted to add that if and when you get the GREAT windshield, make sure the adjusting screws are real tight. I have been hit twice in my face shield in traffic going 65 and it was not fun. Evil or Very Mad

John's
Thanks for the tip, I had an extended windshield come off of my NM4 at highway speed and, as you said, "It was not fun."
Bike assembled in Sacramento and shipped to SFmoto.

You do not adjust "screws" on windshields, but Nuts--10mm socket will do it

Hi Blain and welcome to the site from England.

I agree with the comments about the Givi Airflow (although I have the identical Kappa), and here in the UK heated grips are a must.

Enjoy your Swing!

Thanks for the continuing great tips on GiVi 124 nut security and heated grips.
Got some photos on the uncrating in Sacramento Honda warehouse if anyone is interested.

While I haven't lost the top of my Givi I do have two friends who've lost theirs. I have gotten into the habit of checking the security of my air flow and have found it noticeably loose a couple of times. Now I keep a dedicated 10mm wrench in the cubby to snug-up the clamp bolts. I check them every couple of weeks or more frequently if I'm on an extended ride.

Mine blew off while my brother was riding it. He went back and got it. I was fortunate in that it blew off onto the side of the road and landed in some soft grass. No damage.

I know all about Givi screens flying off, and top section number 3 has behaved itself since the summer of 2012. Which is just as well since the Wunderlich wind deflector fitted to it cost four times as much as the screen. But I digress, why is this under a topic labelled ’New California Member'?  scratch

Thanks for the hijack reminder, Meldrew. This topic has been split off from "New California Member"
