Well I'm happy to report that the screen fitting process on the newer twin headlight European version seems to be a piece of cake compared with the single headlight version.

1. Simply remove the 2 x crosshead screws in the airvents

2. Then pull gently on the bottom of the 'V' in the airvent, and after a couple of seconds of wiggling, it comes off.

3. Remove the 4 x 10mm bolts to remove the original

4. Stand back and admire your handiwork. Best 15 minutes I've spent in a long time Surprised

I'll give an update tomorrow when I can wind it up a bit on the dual carriageway.

I would love to fit a Givi screen to mine, before heading to Belgium next month, but they are a bit spendy for me at the moment and I fancy the adjustable one. This will be useful information when it comes to my doing it though, thanks for the "how to". Smile

Theyre quite reasonable over here, I got mine in the sale here for 109EUR, which was good, and included postage :-)
https://www.motocard.com/en/windshields-2/givi-af214.aspx £127 in case the currency doesn't show up correctly.
It does say until 2009, but that's when they went to the twin headlight ones here I think?

Good luck and enjoy the Belgian trip.../Rob

So who can answer... are the pre 2009 screens actually different profiles from the 2010 on?

No, identical.
The Givi AF 214 fits all Silverwings of the 'old' shape.
My 2009 and 2014 models both had or have that screen, both came with the original screens which were narrow!

All:
I have a GEVI windshield on my scooter. ???? when it rains , the
rain stays on the w/shield. It seems there's not enough wind force to
blow it off to the sides. @ 30 mph or 60 mph - any speed
Anyone have this problem?
Thoughts please...

Yes, rain will bead up on the screen. Especially at lower speeds. Hopefully you are not of the "look thru the windscreen" persuasion when you should be looking over the screen. If so, you're just going to have to purchase some magic concoction which purports to eliminate that beading problem.

Barring that you may need to trim down the screen to the proper height So that the wind, rain and bugs get deflected over your helmet.

Top is about 1.5" below my line of sight. I have a good air flow front
and behind the w/shield. never tried rainx on plastic. somewhere i think
i read it would cloud the screen. i'll check a can at the auto store. i know
it's great on glass w/shields.

thanks

I took it off again, my line of sight was about an inch BELOW the screen, which I found surprising as I'm 6'3" and most people who ride scooters here are wayyyy shorter than me. The other surprising thing was the lack of wind and air circulating, so I was roasting. OK, that's more of a problem in the south of France than UK, but still. I might cut a couple of inches off and re-install it in the winter :-)

Robbo would you not be better trying to add a lip to the original screen than butcher a new givi thst you'd most likely get money back on second hand

I had a Laminar Lip on my X9 (on the orignal screen); it was just the ticket.
I think if I'd bought the 'ears' for the Silverwing Lip it would probably have been just as good.

They do a Rain-X for plastics specifically. Yes indeed the glass version will cloud most plastic screens.

I use this, years old now (out of date) but still works a treat.
Used for helicopter screens. Try asking at a local airfieldNew Givi Screen Fitted today 20180811

I seem to remember Waspie, a former member here and helicopter engineer, used to use something similar.

Of course there's two Givi screens available for the SW-T Silver Wing. The non adjustable D318 ST that Robbo has fitted and is usually too high for most riders. The other being the height adjustable AF318 Airflow, similar to the popular AF 314 for the FJS/FSC Silver Wings.

As for Rain-X rain repellant, both the OE and the Secdem screens I had on my 650 Burgman were dirt magnets in prolonged rainy weather. I did try treating them with Rain-X after thoroughly washing and drying the screen and it did work.

Rain droplets beaded off, but after a day's wet weather riding it's effectiveness diminished and it was back to a dirty screen. I've never had a problem with the Silver Wing's Airflow, it doesn't get dirty and my Wunderlich spoiler is very good at deflecting rain off my visor.

Meldrew,
I think you meant the AF 214 is the adjustable screen for the fsc/fjs Swing 600.

The Givi AF 214 is the correct one for your Silverwing, Foxy.

You're right mate, a simple slip of the keypad while the coffee machine was firing up. Anyway, any info required on Givi products is there on their website, and there's more posts and topics on Givi screens on this forum than any other subject.
