Best touring screen for SV1kN

Next summer the plan is to do a long tour with a couple of friends. They ride a Concourse and ST1300 and think that I'll need more wind protection to keep fatigue at bay. I have an SV1000N with a National Cycle F-16 touring screen. I like the looks and there's no helmet buffeting. Do you think they're right? If so, any suggestions?

I was thinking of getting this attachment. https://www.twistedthrottle.com/mra-...ield-extension
Anyone have experience with it? It'd be nice to be able to control the air flow, higher when it's raining and lower when it's hot. Not sure if my F-16 is tall enough to push the air over my head with this thing attached.

I think maybe the answer is in your info regarding your current screen....

You say you get no helmet buffeting ? Therefore, either the screen is shooting the air up over your head enough, or it is hitting you square in the chest.
If its over your head, all is well, leave it alone..... but, at the same time, even if it is htting you in the chest, the fact that you are not getting buffeting suggests that you are not fighting the wind anyway....so, again, leave it as is...

The trouble with adding extra attachments is that there will extra wind drag and turbulence which may affect the stability of the front end.... Remember, this all attached to your steering in effect.

Unless you swap out what you have now and replace it completely with a proven screen, i would leave well enough alone

Thanks, for that.

Very astute of you regarding the air. It hits me in the chest.

Yeah... Adding something to the top of the existing screen may make it hit you right in the face....

Not saying there isn't something on the market that will do exacty what you need, but, with the wind hitting you in the chest, allthe work is being done by your upper body and not your neck.
Also, it helps keep weight off your wrists as it is...

Regularly moving our head around, side to side and stretching is the thing to do....don't let your head "settle" between your shoulders, that makes things tight and stiff....
When you fuel up, go the trouble of stretching and bending to relax....

Long trips are awesome.....lots of things to look at..... enjoy !!

I'll do a bit more research to see what I can find. Ideally I'd like to be able to control whether the wind hits me below the helmet (like now) or above the helmet. That's what my buddies can do on their Concourse and ST. If this isn't possible I'll take your advice and just leave well enough alone. After all, the tour will be summertime so temperature won't be an issue.

Yeah, the Concourse and the ST have also got an advantage already in that they have some serious frontal area that is
already shaping the air flow, and their screen additions are just modifying it more....
You on the other hand have got squat to work with in comparison.... ha ha....
