    I ordered them.  Will let you know how they do after I install them.  Hopefully it will reduce the wind noise I'm experiencing coming from below the screen.

    We'll see.

    I'm also interested to hear how you get on. I have a WRS screen and, looking at the pictures, I can't see any reason why they shouldn't work with that.

    Hope it's a good result  :002:.

    Also a WRS screen owner, should you go ahead and fit any chance you can report back, fit / performance 👍

    I'm currently running the OEM Triumph screen.

    Delivery is a few weeks out and it's getting chilly here in the States.  I'll fit them on and take them out on a good day warm enough to ride.  I'll ride in the mid 40's so should have a few of those in December.

    I just put on some Evotech bar ends yesterday too so I will also report any reduction in vibration for those interested.

    Stay tuned.

    What is strange to me is that Givi screen sold for the 900 Tiger has wider shaped base to cover over the bottom deflectors, I removed the standard deflectors as not needed, it works so well but they don't do the same shape for the 1200. the Givi is available in 2 heights for the 900 too. Picture attached for those who haven't seen the screen. Sorry it dirty but actually you can make out the shape better  :002:

    Ordered the Puig Touring screen today from Revzilla. Hopefully it cuts down on the wind blast at highway speeds.

    It just doesn't seem to be much bigger than OEM. I think I'll  sit on it until a Madstad or similar bigger screen is available. The puig winglets look interesting though.

    Still waiting on delivery of the winglets.  They are stuck in US customs right now.  I will report on the Evotech bar ends per my previous post - there may be a negligible reduction in vibration but I really don’t notice a difference.  Maybe it will be noticeable on a longer trip.

    I have the Puig screen. Couldn’t handle the turbulence from the stock windshield so I bought it  almost immediately.

    For reference - I’m just a hair under 6’, and even with the Puig being a bit taller I still had turbulence.

    I finally ended up adding an additional Puig extender to the top and that finally solved it.

    I just did 700klm with the bar ends. It helps a little but not that much. My fingers were still tingling after 90 mins in the saddle without a break. I also have grip puppies on the Tiger because the grips were too small for me.
    I put Kuryakyn iso grips on my other bike and they were great. Not sure if they have a Tiger version but maybe the generic Triumph version will fit. The heating option would disappear of course.
