Hi

I had similar shape Puig but more transparent (methinks) fitted on my '95. I didn't notice much difference in the windyness at 60mph and above so it has now been on garage shelf for some time.

Good work sir.

Yep - I had a very similar one. It made a difference - you only really noticed when you take it off!

I have one of these in the dark tint.

I can't say I notice a difference when it's fitted but compaired to when it isn't it must do something!

This photo has made me want to put mine back on again now!

mine stops me from hanging on for dear life when doing more than a ton (when I can get away with it), so it must be reducing the wind blast  considerably

Really, I've not got a screen fitted and I don't notice any difference other than the position of the needles in the clocks

Hi again

I had a test drive with the screen and mainly noticed that it directed the airflow straight to my helmet causing extra stress to neck, so back to the garage shelf it went.

Seconded to eternally-t, I've had various screens on my cb5's over the years. If you're regularly on motoryways or at those speeds a little screen will be a few quid very well spent. Its worth it not to arrive at work with neckache and do help if its wet too. Having commuted a 55 mile trip, they're essential imo.

Adjusting the thing will make a big difference though, too upright and you'll get buffeted by the wind deflecting into your lid, too low and you'll get the deflected wind against your neck. Remember to set the headlight beam afterwards too.

Btw I have an unfaired cb5 and a puig screen'd other one. You can tell the difference with the screen!
