Wind noise and buffering
« on: July 07, 2017, 05:01:38 PM »
I've recently purchased a 2013 TEX and suffering with quite a large amount of wind noise and buffering. I'm 6"1 and and wear a shoei GT air helmet. I have recently purchased a batzen screen adjuster with has helped with the symptoms a little but I'd like to improve or oven clear these issues completely. I'm now just looking at adding a touring screen to hopefully rectify this but there is so many to choose from I have no idea which way to turn. Can people please send me some advice or share if they have had this issue and if and how they have managed to cure this.

Thanks Jon

Also new to this site so apologies if this is posted incorrectly

Ok same problem same bike


I fitted a screen blade and that sorted the problem, a lot of customers have gone for the touring screen and from their feedback has been good. Yes I work for a dealer and talk to lots of customers...... It's still a very objective subject tough.....

 Wunderlich. I'm about 5 11"
Lots of options that's just what worked for me as I didn't want a massive screen.

 Givi Airflow screen. I am 6'2" and this works well for me.

Strangely enough I was given a new Powerbronze tinted tall screen for free tonight. I'll fit it tomorrow and give it a test run and report back on the difference it makes over the standard screen. :028:

This was a big issue for me and my 2012 to the point that I nearly sold it but I cut the screen down a bit at a time till it was acceptable then I added Powerbronze deflectors then I added a Givi Airflow screen, getting the dealers or Triumph to admit to this problem was hopeless but I have now cured it completely and have no buffeting at all.
I bought a 2017 XRt and it has been sorted with some little deflectors and new screen shape.

I don't know if this will help you but I have a 2017 XCA and I can ride very comfortably as fast as I like, 80 to 90 mph with no problem at all. This is with the stock screen in the full up position.

Hi Jon,

I have a laminar lip attached to a touring screen and I also made two 15mm bushes out of new fuel hose and use them as spacers at the lower windshield attachment points. I had to use new fixing bolts to do it , but it is we worth the experiment.
I leave the screen in the middle position and it is fine. I do 90% of my riding with the visor on my helmet up and I only get
head buffering at 120kph  because the height of the visor collects the wind.
Cheers Andrew
