GIVI Shield
« on: August 23, 2011, 01:17:20 pm »
I just installed the Givi shield last night and will try to get pictures by the weekend. It is 5" taller and 1"-2" wider than the OEM shield. Now I have clean smooth air flow over the top. I can ride with my shield open on my helmet with out it pushing down to close. I took a short ride and at 90 it still have smooth air and shield stayed up. The only thing I have noticed is I have an orange halo from the driving lights. But that you would have with the Cali shield also. I installed the shield in the highest setting and seems fine there, I am 6'1 with 32" inseam to give you a reference. The shield is also $35 less than the Cali shield. I bought it from Revzilla, it goes for $150 with Free shipping. Plus they give you Revzilla dollars to spend on your next order.  ::026::

With shipping it is $50 less than the Calsci.  Committed to a large Calsci but look forward to the pictures.

I got mine last week and installed it for a ride this past weekend.  I've got about 400 miles on it and it's a huge improvement over the stock shield.  I think I am getting some back draft as the back of my jacket seems to be lifting at speed.  I also added a top box (over the rear seat) at the same time so that could be affecting the wind as well.

I'm 6', 32" inseam and I have it mounted in the mid position (I think there are 3 or 4 positions it can be mounted in based on holes in the bike mount and the holes in the windshield.  I'll be trying it with the Yamaha side deflectors next week.

I just did a 200 mile ride with it and had nice clean air on my helmet. My body was getting hit with more air. I think it was coming up over the fairings, I got the Yami wings on order and will be putting them on. I am 6'1 32" inseam. I have the shield mounted in the highest position.

+1 on the givi here as well. I just did 200 miles with the wife and we could actually hold a conversation without yelling, both had a great pocket. Likely the best bang for buck option to date....

I have to go back and review the specs, but I'm wondering why you picked that screen and not the Givi screen where you can slide it up and down.

I dunno Im just not gelling with it for some reason, it drags pegs more than i want it too and i wish it was smoother i know i change a bunch more stuff but at the end of the day its me, i think what i want out of my ride has changed a bit over the past three or four years and im looking at other bikes i wouldn't usually look at, i like to tinker with stuff and ride something you dont see so much i think,

maybe a valkyrie cafe racer is next  ;D
