1st post sans intro... I've been lurking, beat me up if you must... I have logged 3,200 mi on the new Blue "ALBA" Tiger in the last 6 weeks and have been experimenting with screens swapping out various configurations during my 80 mi commute.
OEM suspension settings, 5-10in, 185 lbs, 31in inseam, I slouch a bit while riding (sounds slightly like a personal ad eh?)
1. Stock screen = clean wind blast with excessive noise. Not a super bad thing with earplugs. Real useless in a downpour or headwind.
2. Givi screen = (Touratech handguards hit lower screen edges with about 1 in to go till turn stop) real good pro and good dbs untill about 60 mph. About there my head begins to get tossed about in all directions so unpredictably that the bike track is altered. Seriously long-ride discouraging.
3. Givi screen (post angry and impulsive Dremel Tool alteration) -2 inches = good pro and OK dbs until about 50 mph* See 60MPH results above...
4. Givi screen (post-post somewhat calmer Dremel Tool alteration) -4 inches = altered but cleanish wind blast (I think that the wider sides without the height to a greater degree effect the vortex swirling around the edges) very noisy more so than the stock screen.
5. Givi screen (with additional and affixed "duct taped" curved and contoured flexible plexiglass) +6 inches from stock standard = good pro, quieter ride, not bad wind pocket at speeds over 60 mph, troubled air resumes at 70 mph but not as bad as the Givi screen unaltered.
Please keep in mind that I have been swapping the stock screen in and out between Givi alterations.
I've just ordered the larger +9 Calsci screen. It seems to me that after my home-made mods and for my specs this should do the trick. I'm more interested in the comfort alterations than the "looks" alterations. My last bike was a Kawasaki ZZR1200 and the lack of comfort drove me not to ride.
So its a Tiger for me and so far I'm loving it
