Puig Touring Windscreen Triumph Tiger 800 / XC 2011-2016
Easy to install. looks good. Taller than stock and a little wider. Does a good job pushing the wind over my helmet. Like the adjustability feature.

Puig Touring Windscreen replaced Triumph Adventure Windscreen = Huge Improvement!
Short and sweet - when I purchased my Tiger 800XC I also purchased the Triumph Accessory "Adventure' Windscreen. The Adventure windscreen is about 4" taller than the stock windscreen and is adjustable - however, the design of the screen allowed way too much wind to pass and literally offered only marginally better performance than the stock windscreen. I went about 3 years with the Triumph Adventure screen before finally upgrading to this Puig Touring windscreen. What a difference! It's by no means perfect, but it doesn't make any sacrifices for performance, looks great, and performs nearly flawlessly. I'm sure a speciality screen would perform better, but this one looks nearly stock (better in fact) and gets the job done perfectly. Highly recommended.

looks and works great
Best upgrade to my bike I've done yet! Works great and the medium smoke looks badass. Triumph tiger 800 stock windscreens suck so don't hesitate to upgrade. I only give it a 4 because it could have come with bigger grommets. The stock rubber grommets for the bottom of the windscreen pulled through the windscreen because the stock holes are slightly smaller. it was an easy fix.

Much better than stock in terms of reduced Buffetting
Generally i'm decently happy with this screen, buffetting was reduced by about 90% over the stock wind-screen. Buffetting was not completely reduced and it's still pretty bad in certain windy conditions, but i'm certain that the Tiger 800 XCX is partially to blame for most of this. I find this screen to be a tiny bit flimsy, which I think is the cause for the minor buffetting i'm still seeing, if there's a bit of a head-wind, the screen flexes by about 1 - 2 inches. A nice bonus is that the screen is adjustable, this helps on a really hot day and less windy days to help keep me cool.
Feedback for Puig - I couldn't for the life of me figure out via any of their documentation online or reviews on how this screen was adjustable. Now that i've installed it, it's super simple to adjust but I wish their website would have done a better job of describing how the adjustments were manipulated. Essentially the screen tilts towards the rider, as opposed to the screen being raised and lowered.

The stock windscreen on the 2014 Tiger 800 xc does little to deflect the wind (I'm 6'). In fact, it somehow actually made it worse! After installing the Puig (I elected for the smoked version), wind and buffeting decreased dramatically. You can adjust the Puig quite a bit so you might more wind or less depending on the riding you are doing--that is a great feature (shouldn't all adv bike windscreens be adjustable?). The method of adjust is not the best, but works fine. I did notice that after a few miles at highway speeds one of the knobs which keeps the screen in place was slipping, and the screen dropped a bit. I had to pull over and re-adjust and tighten the knobs down. It doesn't seem to be a continuing problem, but I did find that adjusting while riding is very difficult.
Installation was fine. No major issues. About 20 minutes or less. You have to use OEM fasteners for the front screws and rubber grommets, which seem slightly too small for the openings in the Puig. They seem to be holding, but Puig really should supply all the hardware.
All in all, Puig is a nice product and so far it has worked great. The Triumph screen was simply much too expensive (as are all Triumph parts), and Puig has a good reputation and reviews I read on Revzilla were accurate and helpful.

Transformed my Tiger!!!
I didn't have good luck with the stock screen. It seemed to point the wind right at the top of my shield on my helmet - resulting in the notorious Tiger Wind-ROAR. I use a Shoei GT-Air and a Neotec, and both of these, notably quiet helmets, were so noisy over 40mph that I couldn't believe it. I am 5'7", and use the seat low, which may have something to do with it, but I tried the Triumph Tall/Touring windscreen, and that didn't work for me either - essentially the same (ROAR) performance as the stock one, give or take a few mph.
I looked at lot of windscreens, and decided to give this one a try. I really didn't want a Maadstad - no offense, but even if they work, they don't appeal to me, and don't look like they belong on a Tiger (to my eyes).
Installation was a breeze (especially after all of my experience swapping the OEM ones). I set it up low to start, and it seemed good, but after a few quick tweaks, setting a little higher than middle - I found my peace in the Tiger's seat - now I can hear the purr of that beast beneath me. No more wind-roar, no buffeting, just a nice smooth little bubble of calm air. I'm about to take off for a 2,000 mile trip, so I will report back afterwards if I come up with anything less than stellar results, but after my test rides, I anticipate this will be the cat's meow. This and the ROX Risers turned a pretty acceptable bike, into a road machine with all-day comfort.
I am really glad I bought this. Fellow Tiger owners - thanks for your inputs - also, I may throw some washers in over the the Puig grommets, just to keep 'em in shape.
Revzilla - thank you for, somehow and amazingly, having this on my doorstep in less than 18 hours! It was here before it was marked "shipped" on the website! Service, as always, is phenomenal!
Enjoy your ride!

Windscreen is well made and mounting brackets are better than stock. Mounting bolts and grommets don't work well. Since they recommend reusing the lower stock ones it seems they could include correct hardware with the windscreen. The upper mounts supplied need additional fender washer to keep them from pulling out. Plan on a trip to the hardware store to get proper mounting hardware which is not a big deal.

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.
