I've had the Madstad on my 2015 since I got it in 2016 and it's brilliant, can ride all day with the visor open and no buffering at all

I'm seriously thinking of going that option, could you please post a side-on pic, and what model is the Madstad?

Cheers.

I've got a pic of mine on the 1st page of this thread if you want to see one, Regi. It's an Explorer model in medium gray :821:

Just fitted the Puig with wing to my XrX. I'm 6'6'' and after a little adjustment it seems to have sorted out all the turbulence issues.

Has anyone tried the VStream Windscreen on their Tiger? I would love to try another windscreen (too much buffeting with the Tiger Touring screen) but soooo many choices! I read where the PUIG is a good choice but then I see someone chime in on how narrow it is...here I go again, windscreen shopping :157:

So far, I am considering;

1) VStream

2) PUIG

3) Madstad

I'm not sure I would be worried about going too narrow. The original screen is reasonably narrow but I think the airflow round the side only really catches your arms where it is of little consequence. Going wide can carry an increased stability risk at speed to my mind.

XCaTel, did you replace your screen? If so, with what?

No, I added a lip, Ali-Express, $18. Cos I'm cheap!  The MRA version is much better quality, I had one on my previous bike, but I was tempted to try this after a few others on the forum purchased them, NiK springs to mind. The electric screen mechanicals do add a fair bit of play in the whole screen setup with this lip but I think a very large wide screen may put more pressure on it again. This lip makes a very big difference to me at motorway speeds.
