Hi. I’ve tried to search the forum but have drawn a blank.
My question is “are the screens interchangeable between generations?”
I have a 19 XRT for clarification

The reason is I want to cut one down for summer riding so for that reason don’t want to pay full price !
(It worked on my Multistrada so hoping for same effect on the Tiger)
Cheers

Gen 1 to Gen 2 screens are not compatible. Not unless you are handy with a drill. The holes are in different locations. Now what I can't answer is, are gen two compatible with Gen 3 bike. I'd suggest simply looking at the Triumph EPC on line to see if the part numbers are the same. Or an aftermarket slte such as Powerbronze etc

The Gen 1 manual screen is not compatible with the Gen 2 electric screens, but I assume the Gen 2 & Gen 3 are the same and interchangeable.

I believe your 2019 XRT has a “high touring” screen as standard. To avoid cutting it down try to get the lower screen that’s fitted to the XR or XRX = I got one from a forum member who was upgrading to the XRT high screen, or search Ebay.

If you want an even lower screen Powerbronze make a much smaller fly screen that only covers the instruments/TFT = and they offer a discount to us forum members!

thanks. good point about parts catalogue
I'll do some more research, and keep an eye on eBay.

If anyone has a Gen 2/3 screen, even if damaged / scratched near the top, collecting dust in the garage I'll take it off your hands!!

Triumph sells a small summer screen as well if you didn't want to try and cut one down.

Thanks vsteel but at £189 it’s a smidge pricey. As I mentioned I cut a screen down for my Multistrada a few years back and it went well enough so happy to have a go

Powerbronze do summer screens for the Gen 2 for £59. If you look up Gen 3 on their website these screens won't come up. If they are compatible with Gen 3 as the lads above say then that would do the trick.

I’ve not figured out how to get real clean (no buffeting) air even with all the adjustments for my Gen1.
I’ve got a CalSci screen that is much bigger but only a little better. The cleanest air is when I stand on the pegs.
I’m going to remove the screen altogether and see if that does the trick, then go from there. Maybe cut down the stock screen.
I think a chopped down, dark smoked screen would look great. How it would work? I don’t know.

I am happy with my Givi/Kappa AirFlow windscreen. It is two-piece and the height is easily adjusted from the saddle without tools in seconds. And, you can remove the top half to ride in 'sport mode' in hot weather.

I have a short screen that just covers the clocks. I put it on for the warmer weather to get more airflow. It is better for buffeting, but still has plenty. Not as clean as standing in the pegs. I also have standard and touring screens and have tried all with and without batzen brackets. All buffet to differing degrees. I don’t have the winglets - those supposedly help.
