Givi A603 Airstar Universal Windscreen
Wind buffeting a big problem
Fitting this to my 2008 Bonnie. I will say that it seems to be well made, looks great and of course Revzilla's delivery was outstanding.
Because of the position of the front brake master cylinder and its hoses, I first had to grind off a good bit of the plastic body on the right-hand mount. Even then, I have yet to find a height and angle where I don't get an unacceptable level of wind buffeting in my face. I've tried half a dozen or so positions. Higher and more upright seems to be better.
I'll try a couple more times, then it goes on Craigslist for cheap.

I installed this on my Scrambler for a long trip. Works great, kept the wind off, no buffeting. The smoked tint looks great on the bike, too! Got a compliment from a dude I work with, so there's that.

This product does what I wanted it to.
I use this Windshield on a 2014 Yamaha Bolt. It cut down on the wind that was hitting me in the chest. The rides are much more enjoyable. I got the smoke option so it cuts down on the Texas glare. Very adjustable if you need to move up or down line of vision.

Nice screen for the SV650 Naked
This screen went on a 2007 SV650 Naked, and it's great for taking the main windblast off the chest but leaving a little fresh air at the helmet. It's adjustable on the bike so the lean and height are up to the rider. Nice screen, very nicely finished.

Blocks air from chest, but sends it all into face.
Maybe I haven't found the right angle or position yet, but it tends to blow wind directly into my visor. I'm 5'5" which probably makes things worse. But it does help with getting wind off your chest on the highway.

Easy to install
Easy to install with great wind coverage. Also sleek enough to keep the sporty look

Fits like a glove on SV650
Installed this on my 2008 SV650 for commuting. Fits perfectly, looks like it was made for the bike. The range of adjustment on the windshield mounting kit is excellent, you can angle it in a number of different directions to get a proper fit.
Have not tried riding with it yet so can't comment on how much it will help stop the wind on the freeway, but from a quality and ease of installation perspective, it's a great piece of gear.
The instructions leave quite a bit to be desired, but it is really not hard to figure out how to install.

Blocks the wind, as a windscreen should
This worked out great for my Suzuki TU250. Winter highway riding had gotten far too cold and windy, but I was hesitant to add a windscreen to this style of bike. The A603 is a reasonable size, large enough to be functional without detracting from the look of the bike. I think it even adds a bit of vintage charm. It does what it should, and blocks the wind, making highway rides far more comfortable.
