They sell the Givi screen all over the internet and I’ve seen them at a discount- not sure if you’d get it by 7/5 though.

EDIT: Just saw you’re in the UK…sorry

There's shed loads of Givi AF 214 Airflow screens on eBay UK mainly from Italian sellers. I have to say that I was surprised to see how much they'd shot up in price over the years since I bought one. Really surprising considering the FJS Silver Wiing was discontinued in 2016.

As for the AF 318, that's the Airflow screen for the updated SW-T version of the Silver Wing that Honda UK could have added to their scooter range in 2010 but didn't.

It may fit the FJS version and it may not, almost everyone on here has the FJS or North American FSC version.

The Kappa version is supposedly the same exact windshield as the Givi version but generally cheaper:

Would that be a Givi Air Flow (AF-214) windscreen or a standard, non adjustable, Givi (D-214) windscreen Dave?

Yep - it would have been sensible for me to state...
It's a Givi 214DT fixed screen.

Tell 'em the Givi 214DT is 3.93 inches taller than the useless Honda OE screen too.

Whether you'll sell anything on here to what is mainly a US orientated forum I've no idea.


Although I sold my Airflow screen and Factory Service Manual to a Yorkshire member, in contrast to online buyers when I had a recent long overdue clear out.

Advertising various items of bike gear on Facebook selling pages, I've had 'I can collect it today' and then they don't turn up. 'I can come for it tomorrow', and they don't. 'Can you send me more pics?, which I do. A rather pointless exercise when I've already posted multiple pics for the selling page.

I've also had "I'll come for it tomorrow', and I reply that I'll be away all day but I'll bag the items up and leave them by the back gate, they can put the cash through the letter box.

Returning home I find the items still by the back gate.

Other things that I have sold, I've refused lower offers saying it's well worth the asking price, and the buyers have been pleased with what they've bought for my selling price.

In the end I got fed up, boxed up the stuff that no one was interested in and took it to a local Hospice charity shop.

I also had a load of UK and European motorcycle rally badges that were once quite prized and I'd nostalgically hung on to for years, in the end I just binned them too.

I haven’t even thought of advertising it on social media marketplaces. Didn’t think there would be much interest. Just thought I’d see if the chap was still looking for one.

If you have the space then hold on to it in case of damage to your existing screen.

You never know when you might need a spare Question

I held on to the unmarked or faded OE screen for my 2005 Burgman 400, a taller Secdem screen for the 2008 Burgman 650, and a National Plastics handlebar screen I had on a Honda 650 Revere back in the Nineties.

I maybe should have tried to sell them on eBay a long time ago, but I didn't. I even moved them from Cumbria to York where they cluttered up my shed for the best part of 10 years.

I finally came to my senses and chucked them in a skip at my local recycling centre a couple of months ago. Now all I have is the OE screen off my Forza 300. As the Forza's screen is electric it's a lot smaller than a fixed height screen.

Sadly this hoarding affliction is endemic amongst motorcyclists. Glance into any home with an open garage door that has motorcycles inside as you walk past. Or on forum pics, and the garage is invariably cluttered up with for want of a better word, ****. Neutral

You're absolutely right - there are two exhausts and a handlebar on a rack at the back of my garage off my ER6f, but the SWing Givi screen has now gone in its box in the loft.

There's a topic on 'hoarding' here on the forum. I've bailed myself out of more than a few tight spots by having a few spares hanging around!

I realise this is an old post, just wondering if the Givi 214 DT screen is still in Davetech's loft, being 6'.5" it would be useful, and it's well within my riding distance.....

A big thank you to Mike for the swift transaction, Givi 214dt now fitted.
What a difference a screen can make, far less wind noise and I don't have to hunch over being 6' 5",
Mirrors stay where they are, and far less buffeting.

I like the 214DT for similar reasons.

Previously, how fast were you going to make the mirrors move? Laughing

Ah good point I should clarify mirrors comment.
Every picture advert I have seen for the Givi 214DT screen shows it installed on a Swing with mirror extenders fitted which place the mirrors wider than the handlebars which I didn't want.
Well luckily they are not required for the mirrors to miss the screen on full lock.
Hence "mirrors stay where they are!"

Got it. I have mirror extenders fitted and it's a PITA setting the mirrors up so as not to touch the screen on full lock. I can't do without the extenders though.
