Currently, I have the tinted PUIG racing windscreen, which dumps dirty air right on my helmet.

I've always preferred lower windscreens that let me experience the quiet laminar air.

Does anyone have a stock or lower windscreen they can ship to US zip 94587?

Ended up ordering this one off eBay. It looks to be as low, or lower as anything else I can find, and I figure I can cut it down if it's still too tall.

Guess I'll find out in a month :p

I was going to do the same thing so I ordered a stock one. It is the same as my Puig. I don't think KTM offers but the one. I'd be interested in how the one you bought cuts if you go that route.

Here are some pics: PUIG screen, the China screen prepped for cutting, mounted after cut, and the piece I cut off.

The plastic is the same thickness as the PUIG screen and feels solid. There's some minor visual distortion, as to be expected, but visibility is quite good. I cut it with a Dremel, de-burred with the Dremel sanding tip, then hand sanded with 120 grit sandpaper and polished with 2000 grit wetNdry.

It's much better now!

No buffeting, and my head is in clean air at freeway (and lower) speeds. Only downside is that now there is a bit of air hitting my chest and coming up into the helmet, drying out my eyes.
