Givi A240 Airstar Universal Windscreen
The windscreen looks great and with the mounting kit was easy to install. The mounts on my headlight bucket are slightly recessed so I had to put 1/4" spacers in between the headlight bucket and the windscreen mount so everything would match up.
Mounting the windscreen required squeezing it in because the mounts sat almost an inch wider than a standard healight bucket mount but the lexan flexes just enough. I think it was designed that way on purpose.
It does make a difference with the wind but not a much as I was hoping. I have this on a 2005 ninja 500 that I removed the ugly front fairing from. I am 6ft tall and the wind now hits me in the top of the chest instead of my whole body. If I lay down on the tank I can actually get out of the wind.
My only other complaint is that I wish it was a bit darker of a tint but overall it is a great product and I would highly recommend it.

I LOVE how this looks on my '05 Honda 919.
It added about 15 mph on my top end!
I don't like how it mounts, so I made my own mounts.
It's shaped to fit a square headlight but nobody notices.

This is one sharp little windscreen. Quality and finish are excellent. I mounted it to a 2007 Suzuki SV 650 and it fit pretty well with only a little modification to the edges of the windshield by the healight brackets. It has some adjustment with the extra mounting kit.

Fits 2012 Moto Guzzi Griso... with modification of bracket.
Bought this to cover up the instrument cluster on my Griso. The bracket will need to be cut for it to fit. I used a jigsaw and it was relatively easy to make the modification. If you're not prepared to cut metal, this bracket (and screen) will not fit the Griso straight out of the box.
I've been using the screen now for about three weeks- of all the mini-screens I've seen on Grisos I think this one fits the lines of the bike the best. It does take some pressure off your chest at speed (70-80mph) but it is NOT comparable to a proper touring screen. You will still feel the wind blast and I do believe the screen redirects the airstream directly into my visor (I'm 5'10)- I can feel the pressure pushing back on my face.
The Griso is my hoon/hooligan bike and I only use it for local riding- for touring/long distance I've got a more appropriate ride with better wind management- and the screen does it's two major jobs for me: Keep bugs off the instrument cluster and look good.
Good luck and ride safe.

Looks sharp; easy install; keeps the bugs out !
I found out about this fly screen through the Honda CB1100 forum and figured I'd give it a shot. I ordered from Revzilla on Friday afternoon and it was delivered on Tuesday....great service ! This fly screen is great for keeping the bugs from getting jammed up under your instrument cluster and does deflect the wind somewhat, but is definitely not going to make a huge difference at highway speeds. The smoked plexiglass looks excellent. I had this installed on my bike in less than 45 minutes and I was taking my time. Simple install, great product, fast service I'll be back !

Knocks the wind off
I bought this for my 2008 Hyosung GT650 I shipped to the US from Australia. The windscreen was extremely easy to install. Finish seems good, and it doesn't rattle or hake while riding at high speeds. The price was better at Revzilla compared to other sites.

Outstanding quality. Outstanding service.
Disclaimer: I haven't installed this screen yet, so I can't really comment on performance or durability. However the Givi product does seem to be of outstanding quality, so it would follow that it should be durable also.
I am going to have to make up some attachment plates to mount the Givi unit, not a jab at Givi, I knew this going in. I am mounting on a Guzzi B1100.
Other than the sheet metal having one rough edge, from the punching production method, everything seems top notch.
Revzilla had the order processed, shipped and at my door in a very timely manner. They have been very pleasant to work with.
