Might a little screen spoiler deal with the extra few inches you need?

Hi all. Newbie here!

At 6ft tall, on my 2016 tiger, the buffeting goes away if you move your head a few inches up into smooth air, or down into the "bubble". So all you shorter riders, try hovering a little off the seat and you'll probably notice the effect.

For me it's definitely the screen, not the lid, as if you slide your helmet sideways a little it goes away. It's like the vortices off the screen flow *perfectly* either side of my helmet.

I heard I can drill a few holes in the screen to drop it down and pop the head into smooth air, get a clip on to push it up/over/out, or just remove it entirely.

To be honest I'll probably go the lowering option. Having a screen to tuck behind is great in event of massive bug swarm, tropical rain, hail, behind a truck that hits a dust patch, et al.  But after riding nakes for a while, I'd rather have no screen at all than this current affair.

On the Ninja I had, wearing a tight leather Alpine Stars sports jacket gave me next to no buffeting but with slightly looser fitting AS textile jacket I was buffeted around all over the place, made a huge difference.
