Shorter screen
on: June 11, 2021, 08:40:20 PM
I have a new 2021 Versys and would like a shorter screen preferably black to replace the original, does anybody do such a thing or will I have to cut this one down and wrap it?

Thanks.

I looking to do the same thing as well. I find the screen just at the wrong height and the wind hits the top of my helmet. I just purchased a Powerbronze screen and will cut it down until I get it to a level where my helmet is in clean air. The stock screen doesnt work for me either fully up or dowm.

I've ordered the Powerbronze sports screen, it has two tabs that hang out the side, weird shape but I figure / hope they tested it. I have a Shoei GT Air Ii helmet and it so smooth and quiet in clean air. Try to get the turbulent air to hit at about neck height. I'm in Australia so it will take a week to come from the UK.

I'll let you know. I'm a touch over 6ft tall.

6’3” here, on my 1400GTR I put a laminar lip on the top and hid behind the screen.

On my Multistrada I just sold I put a short screen on so the air hit me in the chest which was perfect, that’s what I want to achieve with the Versys.

So fitted the new screen and it is better however it needs to be about 20mm shorter. if I put an airhawk on the seat it could possibly just give me that little extra lift but I dont really need the extra comfort.

So at 6’3” that should be what I need, have you a pic of it on the bike?
