The very design of an unfaired "Adventure" bike is never going to give a smooth airflow, unlike a faired sports bike.
Once the screen buffeting problem has been sorted by say Puig, Madstad, Givi etc. the wind noise problem lies with the Mirrors, Tank area, Side Pods and to an extent the clothing being worn.
I always find riding in summer gear is quieter ! ...  :187:
Try tucking your left arm in and put your hand on your shoulder and notice the noise considerably reduced ! (Only for a few seconds of course !!!)  :031:

Best thing i did was fit a Puig screen to my 2015 XCx - no more wind buffeting :0)
The most important thing is to have a good relationship with the bike... You have to understand what she wants. I think of a motorcycle as a woman, I know that sounds silly, but it's true - Valentino Rossi

And the size and shape of the rider how they sit on the bike and what helmet they wear.

Madstad 18"  :028: :028: :028: :028: :028: Outta Five

I can ride open faced, open visor, jacket open if I really want to cool down. Best 700 spent on mods EVER  :047:

I ride with my visor open on my Shoei X2 about 95% of the time or around 7500 miles per year with a standard screen and a Touratech screen extension. Cost way less than 100 UK pounds.

Why quote my reply in a way to belittle it instead of helping the OP and putting your personal experience up for consideration as your own post?
Oh wait, it's OK. Your not only behind a keyboard, but also in another country!

As my post essentially says the exact same thing as yours except that it offers a possible less expensive solution I guess we are both in the wrong.
