Puig Touring Windscreen Triumph Tiger 800 / XC 2011-2016
No more factory windscreen neck pain!!!!!
Wow!!! Puig has made another great product!! I'm glad they allow the ability of 15 degrees of adjustment. You can really tune this windscreen into the size of rider with no problems! I bought the dark smoke for my 2015 black Tiger XRX, and it looks awesome!! Now on another note, I have no idea how a company like Puig can screw this up. The packing of these windscreens is horrible!!! I'm not kidding. Why would a company spend so much money on R&D and then spend zero in their shipping department is beyond me!! I read the reviews and thought those riders just had bad luck. Nope, count me in as well. My screen had abrasion marks from poor packing as well. It's the mounting bars that are hitting the screen and rubbing. Come on Puig, wrap them up!!!!
Disappointing to say the least on packing, what a great product though.

No longer blown away...
I love my Tiger. I'll say it again, I love my Tiger. But...that factory windscreen is not meant for highway speeds for rides of any substance. Whiplash was the pain I felt after my first hour long ride...and then I didn't ride for a week because I didn't want to shut down my kidneys from exceeding the recommended dose of ibuprofen.
Problem Solved. This windscreen is awesome! Took me maybe 15-20 minutes to install (while drinking a beer and screwing around in my garage). Adjustable height? Yes, easy to do. Really, it probably would have taken 3-5 minutes if I knew what Allen & star bit to use...and my drawer of tools didn't look like a 3 year old had been rearranging according to flavor.
I've had this windscreen on for about 500-700 miles and love it. Yeah, I admit, I loved the look of the factory windscreen, but this isn't so bad...and now that my neck does not hurt riding is much more fun.

Good Air Handling for Taller Riders
I'm 6' 0" with a 30" inseam on a stock 2014 Tiger 800. The stock screen sent air straight at my visor and was narrow enough that air would come around the sides of the small stock windscreen and cause buffeting.
This Puig screen is taller and a bit wider. It is also adjustable, so if you had the basic model Tiger without an adjustable screen, this will give you that adjust-ability. Being a taller than the stock screen at its lowest setting means that the air over the top hits the very top of my helmet which is far better than stock. Also, the screen is wider and I no longer experience that turbulent air coming around the sides of the screen and shaking my helmet.
For highway use, I find raising it an inch above the lowest is best, raising it all the way makes it very tall, but also allows more of that turbulent air to roll in on the sides.
Over all, my ride is quieter and less stressful to my neck.
Revzilla is great and handled the transaction with lightning speed as always.
Couple of things though, the reason for the 4 Star:
-Packaging doesn't protect the screen from other parts in the box. The brackets folded during shipping and were resting against the plastic and marred a small location on the side of the screen. I went ahead and used it as I had a trip planned. Had I wanted to raise a fuss about it I know that Revzilla has a fantastic return policy.
-Last is that the screen and hinge are partially assembled, but they are not tightened. Be sure to tighten everything after putting it together. Had I not read the other reviews in that regard I may have not checked the factory's bit of work.

Easy to install, looks good, and protects much better than the stock windscreen.
I chose the dark Puig Touring windscreen. It was easy to install, it looks like a part that Triumph could have designed for the Tiger, and it protects the rider from the elements much better than the stock windscreen.

much better than stock windscreen on tiger 800xc for tall rider
The Puig windscreen works well to reduce buffeting around the helmet. I'm 6'2" and I've got it set up now so the air is much quieter around my helmet--seems to be going just over my head now. My experience follows what earlier reviewers have indicated:
-installs easily but be careful as the screen is too easily scratched. Putting the screen in place I scratched it when it rubbed against mounting points.
-reuse the hardware from your stock screen at the points where this is possible. It's better quality than the stuff that comes with this windscreen. Especially the rubber bits.
-it may take a bit of fiddling around to get just the right height/angle, but adjustment is easy. Requires two hands though so don't try to do it without pulling over.
Overall: looks good. Works well. Just a bit too delicate and easily scratched. Recommended.

Good screen, good build, a bit too delicate.
Good build, looks, and design.
Be careful cleaning with any sort of harsh sponge, the plastic is super soft and not coated with any protectant, it will scratch very easily. Use only soft cloth to clean.
Tighten it well or it will move at high speed.

Greatly Reduces Wind Noise and Buffeting
While not as bad as other motorcycles I've owned with a windscreen, the 2015 Tiger XCx windscreen created way too much wind noise and moderate buffeting at anything above 40 mph. The wind noise at highway speeds was deafening and the buffeting for extended durations made me motion-sick. When I say the wind noise was deafening, I could hardly hear my SENA 20s turned up and even my Smart phone playing music was difficult to hear.
I've played this game of "windscreen roulette" before trying to find one that worked for me. On my previous bike it took 3 screens to finally find one that worked "best". Not perfect, but best…
What I want in a windscreen is one that smooths the air. I'm used to riding a Monster so I like having airflow which helps cool me during warmer days. I don't ride in the winter so, I'm not looking for something to keep me warm.
There are many options for the Tiger XCx. I'll be the first to admit, the windscreen not only has to do its job but it should also look good on the bike matching or enhancing the lines of the bike
The Puig was my first choice. I liked that it looked good, received positive user reviews on forums.
Installation was easy. I would caution though that you you check the pre-installed screws as the two upper screws were not even finger tight. I found this out the hard way when I took a test ride and I saw a nut fall-off.
The screen can be adjusted up or down and any position in between. Each side must be adjusted somewhat independently as there is not "bar" to ensure both sides are completely even. But the screen more or less acts as an equalizing or leveling bar.
Functionally it works really well. In its lowest position it has reduced the wind noise by at least 70 percent. Buffeting has been greatly reduced by 80 percent. In the upper positions the wind noise is still reduced but the buffeting is more prevalent. Still not as bad as stock.
In the low position, airflow is where I want it. My helmet is in clean/clear air which helps with venting and keeping me cooler. I know its working as I'm getting bug splats on the visor...

Does exactly what you'd expect.
A nice solid replacement for the oem screen. It lets you adjust the height easily, and the smoke color is really awesome.
