Givi D260ST Windscreen V-Strom DL650 / DL1000
Great Shield, but Won't bolt up directly to 2002-2003 DL1000
Great shield with very clear lexan. The black lower edge is a great touch too.
Major con, I was expecting it to come ready to mount for my 2002 DL1000 as it stated "Givi D260ST Windscreen for Suzuki V-Strom DL650 / DL1000 Fits DL650 2004-2011 DL1000 2002-2011 " but this was not the case.
I was able to make it work by creating a mounting plate an all new brackets to hold the screen. Modeled after the mad stad mounting kit for 2002 Dl1000 bikes.
Great shipping time, great shield, and I am very happy with it at the moment.

Giving makes great products.
I just received my windscreen today And installation was a snap on my DL1000 . Took it for a quick spin and definitely a big improvement over stock. My only issue is the hand guards touch the windscreen on full lock turns not my mirror stems as others have commented but that might be due to my mirror extensions that put the mirrors about an inch wider than stock. I find this to be a very minor issue but one that should have been thought of when designing the windscreen being so many V Stroms have the hand guards.

Greatly increased wind protection, solid construction.
This windshield was easily installed and provides as much wind protection as anyone riding an adventure touring bike could ask for. Protection may be too good for use in very warm weather (which almost never occurs where I live) and the height of the screen may be a little tall for shorter riders who will not be able to look over the top, even with the it adjusted in the lowest position. But for anyone who spends most of their time riding at highway speeds on paved roads and wants an order of magnitude reduction in wind buffeting, this windshield will do the job.

As others have written, this windscreen is much improved over V-Strom stock. It fits perfectly and I believe looks much better. It corrects the wind buffeting noise. Full turns on handlebars do knock mirrors out of position. I improved performance even more by adding an adjustable bracket for the V-Strom (Purchased elsewhere). This allows me to customize how much wind protection I want in seconds. It adjusts for height and angle. Up for max wind protection when riding with my girlfriend on back. Lower and raked back a bit for high speed driving. (Better stability in high speed crosswinds etc.)

Fit great, works great
Took away a lot of the buffeting you get from the stock screen on my Vstrom. Unlike many Givi items, the price was pretty good compared with other options. Like many Givi items it is a quality part that fit perfectly.

Works as advertised. Reduced buffeting at high speeds
I installed and went for a ride and no buffeting . Worked like a charm. Would recommend to any V-Strom owner.
