Hi all, I attached a visor to my xt this weekend. Bought it off ebay, think it was from an old cb400.
I took the bike to 60mph to see how it faired, it was noisy. I then adjusted the angle of the screen making it slightly more vertical and this improved the level of noise however I am still unhappy with my efforts.
The top of the screen takes me to nose/ eye height with my helmet obviously collecting the full brunt of the airflow off the screen. I have left a slight gap between the headlight cowling and the bottom of the screen, as I saw some beemers like that so it must be for a good reason.
- is it better to have the screen take you below the helmet, or above. Above would surely make for a very unstable odd looking structure ?
- would a perm screen be better than a screen one can remove. I wasnt happy riding the bike through slow traffic though, the screen gave some very odd depth of field distortions - or should the screen just be shorter so you look above it? - any clever ideas ??
- Should the screen be flush with the headlight cowling ?
