Puig Touring Windscreen Triumph Tiger 800 XC 2011-2014
Functional & Stylish
Works great to remove buffeting I had with both OEM shields (original and high). Not too tall to inhibit sight. Smoke color looks great, not too dark or too light. Installation is simple. Also very easy to adjust the shield angle. Finally, it fits the form of the bike and looks better than other shields.

Much better wind protection than stock
I have quite a few highway miles on my commute, and the stock screen wasn't doing it for me. This one has much better wind protection which made it much more comfortable for longer freeway rides.
I have the dark smoke color which I really like the look of. You can see through it slightly if you need to, but unless I'm really tucked in and laying on the tank, in my normal riding position I'm not looking through it anyway.
My only minor con would be that when installing it the holes were only like 99% lined up; I had to press on it a little to get the last couple screws in but no biggie.

Comfortable at highway speeds
Huge difference in how the bike feels at highway speeds. Don't feel like I'm holding on for dear life at speeds above 60.

2013 Triumph Tiger 800XC-Puig Touring wind screen with optional clip on visor
I had already tried to modify the stock screen with other clip on/ adhesive accessories without any luck. It was just too short for my height. 6 ft 1 in. 34 inseam. This new touring windscreen with the optional clip on visor is the perfect set up for this bike. It still allows me to look over the screen with the suggested 50 foot clear view to the road surface ahead. I'd guess I can see the road 25-30 feet ahead without looking through the screen. There is some air that sneaks past the right and left sides of the screen, but it doesn't hit my helmet and only adds air on my upper arms and shoulders. Which is perfect for me. If I want no air on me, I drive the cage. I also got a chance to use the screen in the rain. It did a great job of allowing the rain to go mostly over my helmet. some splashed back but hey, it was raining. No rain = drive the cage! Using the variable height adjustment, it only took 2 small adjustments to find what works for me. I'd say about 60 degree angle. maybe a little more. the only downside to this screen is that the adjustment handles must be very tight in strong headwinds to keep the screen from slipping down. The headwinds we were caught in were 35-45 MPH gusting to 50. At 65 MPH, that is air hitting the screen at about 100-110 MPH. The screen does have some flex in it as it is kind of tall and lean on the sides. But that never changed mounting bolt tightness or affected the screen in any way. I now have over 1000 miles on it and it just plain Works! The last benefit is that I was able to ride about 500 miles with barely a bug on the face shield. The screen did pretty good too. Using a great non-abrasive acrylic cleaner/polish (Brillianize)_ keeps the screen slippery keeping bugs from committing suicide and rain collects a lot less.

Terrible mounting hardware. DANGEROUS!
This is the first and only product I will be ordering from Revzilla. The mounting hardware DOES NOT secure the windshield to the base. I installed the windshield per the instructions. Took it for a test drive and the windshield came undone at 50mph. I nearly had an accident. The grommets and mounting hardware are junk. Unfortunately Revzilla does not back their product. Per their return policy, I can not return the product. I plan on fighting this because this is a defective product test drive or no test drive. Revzilla is either going to send me some mounting hardware that works or I will be protesting the sale and purchase through my credit card company.

Good quality, easy to install, looks great on the bike
I ordered a Puig touring screen for my Tiger 800 road. RevZilla's shipping was absurdly fast ("What's this box here on my doorstep? It couldn't be my windscreen already, could it? Wow, I only ordered it two days ago!") The quality of the Puig unit was good, installation was easy (hint: reuse every bolt and rubber washer assembly from the OEM screen to replace the parts Puig provides) and style and the light smoke color look great on the bike.

Puig Touring Windscreen On A 2013 Yamaha FZ6R
Read all the reviews and online RevZilla vidoes. They indicated that the tour shield works best for 6 foot person. I was looking for a shield to keep wind off my chest at high speeds. Above 70. Im 5.3. Wind hit me right in the face causing alot and unberable wind noice in my helmet. Wanted to send back but return policy indicates that sheild cant be used for a return. Sheild looks great but still have to tuck to eliminate wind hitting helmet. I had to do that with stock shield. Go figure. I drive a 2013 FZ6R. So I sit in an upright position. I thought this would keep me from tucking down in higher speeds. May work on a lower profile bike. Also shield is a bit thin. Speeds under 60 and shield holds it shape but anything above that you will see it start to bend from side to side. Did fix issue with removing wind off my chect though. Also if you live in Texas plan on getting your stuff in 10 days or pay the extra for shipping. Not bad for a instock item and next day shipping.

install super easy, still testing as to wind. likly will be better then stock short screen. Depending on ones height will determine how the wind hits you. if you are shorter this will be great if you are taller i think it may cause some buffeting , however for the price it will be an upgrade for me over the stock .
