Puig Clip-On Windscreen Visor
Definitely helps reduce wind noise
makes a huge difference.would recommend it to anyone with buffeting/buffering issues. Works great on my 2016 Versys 650

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.

brackets are poorly designed and cheaply made
I had high hopes for this thing after reading many positive reviews. I've not ridden with it yet so I can't speak to the performance on the bike, but the bracket adjustment arms are so poorly designed and cheaply made it almost doesn't matter.
The "instructions" are just a picture with no text, so it took me a minute to figure out how to adjust it. During that process, I made the mistake of applying just a little too much force to one of the bracket arms and the whole thing popped right apart. Fortunately, I was able to locate all the little internals that flew all over the place. Because of the worthless instructions, I had to figure out how to reassemble the bracket myself, which I did after a few minutes. While I had it open, I was able to see the plastic gear mechanism, which is soft and already showed visible signs of wear after just a couple of adjustments.
Build quality aside, the brackets seem like they're actually designed to explode if the slightest bit of rotational force is applied to them. The detents are held under tension by two little strips of metal with a football-shaped spring between them, and the side pieces of the brackets only click together. So if you twist or torque them in any way, the spring will tend to come out of alignment and pop the whole thing apart. (See photo for a partial illustration.)
It's back together for now, but I have no confidence in the longevity of this product. As others have done, I'll probably secure the brackets with zip ties, but that shouldn't be necessary for a product at this price point! Very disappointed.

Gave it a try
I have a helmet buffet problem on my 05 Vee Strom with a Rifle windshield. Played all the angle on the Rifle now trying the Puig clip on. So far has not cured the proble but seemed to move it to higher speed. The are many adjustments to play with and I have not hit them all as yet. The Puig appears to be a quality product with solid hardware. Easy attachment too. The plastic plugs in the Allen screws are a nice touch. It takes a while to figure out the adjustment as the instructions suck in all languages. Looking at the pictures on the box are were the best. To adjust put away the screw driver, just grab the shield with both hands and push or pull it to different positions. It stiff at first but loosens up. It didn't fix my problem yet but worth a try.

Eliminates all buffeting
While it took only two minutes to install it, it won't be very easy for someone to steal it. I have it installed on a tall Madstad winshield on a KTM 1190A, and it eliminated all of the buffeting while giving me a few more inches of clean air. What's great is that while off-road or in city driving I can tilt the Puig with one hand to direct the wind straight at me. Excellent!
