All I see is everyone wanting a higher windscreen, but has someone tried no windscreen, cutting the original down or some other (temperorary) low screen idea?

Have been thinking of modelling and 3d printing something, just can't get around to it.

Totally would buy a lower (4-6”) tinted fairing. Getting too much buffeting and I think that would get me into clean air.

Servus, we have also discussed and tried out the problem in the KTM 1290 forum, that can bring an improvement, but does not have to. A try is always worth it. Of course, the clothes and the helmet should be changed beforehand in order to localize the disturbing noise.

I recently posted this mod on ADVrider. I jerry rigged a solution to remove the low pressure behind he screen as well as dropping the air flow to hit my chin and not dead center of my eye shield. I am still playing around with it but for now it removes the awful buffeting at higher speeds. The strange thing is I met two other (shorter) Norden owners recently and both claimed to have no issues. Once had an ADV helmet with goggles so not sure if that also helped. I run a Shoei RF-SR and pushing out the screen while lowering the angle immediately solved the buffeting and wind noise for me.

Welcome! Congrats on the Norden and for solving the buffeting and wind noise issue. Are you planning to any other changes to your bike? What were you riding before?

That's a clever solution @Monza_dh! What other things are you playing with to help with the buffeting?

I found the mirrors were a major contributor to the wind buffeting. I swapped the mirrors out to a smaller oval shape on arms that allowed them to be lowered. That combined with a Puig air deflector and the ride is as smooth as...

I'm 6'4" and love it now.
