Puig Clip-On Windscreen Visor
Makes some difference but one mount broke quickly
I was able to move buffeting window few inches up which made a difference on my yamaha fz1 2009 for sure.
However, the two issues I have with this are:
1. I wish the actual plastic shield was a bit taller and wider so maybe create more of protection
2. my left mount (the actual adjustemnt mechanism) broke when I was adjusting it, and the inside parts all fell out and I couldn't put it together, because its made out of plastic, which makes no sense at all with the very thick (overly done) and proper billet aluminum clamp mounts. Also would be good I suppose to not use hex screws but maybe something that you can remove the shield quickly without tools.
Also, the price is simply ridiculous for a piece of plastic and 2 mounts.
But it allowed me to get back from Cali to NYC via Seattle in some relative noise comfort, compared to without the extension, so in that case, money was worth it, I suppose

Beware! Garbage ratchet mechanism.
I should have listed to most of the reviews. Garbage ratchet mechanism,,, cheap cheap! Installed it on my Africa Twin windscreen. Went to make an adjustment in the garage, and the ratchet mechanism came apart on both sides! And you can't get it back together! JUNK! This thing would have never held up to ADV riding if you can't even get out of the garage with it. I'm telling you. Don't waste your money. It may work for a while but once the connecting arms pop a part, you are screwed. And it'll happen. Thanks to Revzilla for taking it back. I'll spend the money on something else quality.

Solid build quality and easy installation
I purchased this in medium to fit my 2015 suzuki vstrom 1000. As I am 6'3" I was about 3" too tall for the stock shield on the bike and this was just what I needed get the wind up over my head. Out of the well pacaged box you do need mount the clamps to the windscreen visor with the included Allen key. After that simply loosen clamps, slide onto your existing screen and tighten back down. Final step is adjust to your preference. Over all great built quality (holds firm at 100+ mph and offroad) ,easy installation (10-15 minutes), my only gripe is the price, $100 for a small windshield is a bit high but still worth it to get rid of the wind.

Works, but cheaply made and overpriced.
Bought this for my 2015 FJ-09 since the stock windscreen is near useless.
The clips that attach to the windscreen itself are well-made and have a solid hold. However, the joints that connect the spoiler to your base windscreen are made out of cheap plastic and come apart when I try to adjust them.
The product works, but not well enough to justify its price. Nor is it made well.
For $100+ you're better off just buying a new windscreen.

Poor hinges ruin an otherwise good product.
The windscreen visor portion of the product is fine. I like the shop and dimensions. And I like the fact that it's a clip on so that you don't have to drill holes in your windscreen and can move it between windscreens - if the hardware lasts long enough.
The mounting and hinge hardware is an incredibly shoddy design that seems to want to pop apart and the siltiest motion. And when it does pop apart (it will come apart) the first thing that will disappear is the tiny internal spring. Like others, I was fortunate enough to find the spring and see how to reassemble it. I used zip ties to hold it together and that seems to be working OK so far. However, the detent sprocket is already showing signed of major wear and I have only moved it two or three times.
The other problem is that the mounting clips won't sit flat on the windscreen so that it will never really be solidly mounted. And of course the included instruction are rather useless.
It could be a good product if it hadn't been sabotaged by the exceptionally poorly designed mounting and hinges.
