F Fabbri screen for me .... fixed , no adjustement but very double bubble style and it worked for me, it seemed top work like a blade and parted the airflow, it was fab on the 15 plate  ....... . I still wish I could fit it to the 19 plate, I think the screen on that is awful ... bloody rattle drives me mad!

I never found a tall screen to help with buffeting.  I went short, wind hit mid chest with NO head buffeting.
Might look around, if you go too big make sure you beef up the cockpit. It can crack and I would guess eventually fail.

Its a tall Powerbronze screen on at the moment, the buffeting and noise is horrendous! So am thinking short screen would be better. Its gonna be a case of just keep trying until I get the right combo.

You could try the standard screen, and add the MRA Vario clip-on to it, as a start to experiment with. That's what I have. It's not perfect and took some experimenting with angles to get the best result. I don't get buffeting but do get noise, but I have a flip and wear earplugs anyway.

I did have a spare standard screen somewhere, but donated it to the local Triumph owners branch for a raffle. I could ask if they still have it if you're interested.

Hi paullie yeah I think thats the way forward for me, start from scratch and go from there. So yeah Im on the lookout for a standard screen. If the one you kindly donated is still laying around Id be very grateful, and obviously give you something for it.

Sorry JT, just heard that the screen actually went on the raffle night (much to the surprise of the organiser!). So can't help you now. But you can usually pick them up cheap on eBay.

Well I got myself a standard screen, the noise and buffeting is still there but not as bad. So Ive got one of those clip on spoilers from eBay so Im going to fettle with that to see what happens. I know it largely depends on what screen and height of rider but does anyone have any tips on what position these spoilers work?

Parallel to the screen works best for me - and a little higher.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
