Just to be sure, what's your aim, to have no air pushing on your helmet at all, or decrease the noise
of the airflow !?

Because in most cases if it's the noise that bothers you, completely shielding a helmet, induces more
low frequency noises, which can be worse than the higher frequency wind noise.

I have crash pads on my XRT and same thing for me on the RHS, it massively improved, changing the
pegs by the SWmotech adjustable height ones somehow !
Maybe your legs will experience the same, but it depends on your morphology.

Mine came with the low seat but i've got the normal seat on order, maybe that will help a little with my leg postion.

I'm surprised i'm not reading about others having the same problem.

Most people in my experience are on the short side, I have a 34inch inseem so never have issues
with saddle height myself, though on some sportbikes I feel like a frog, it's unbearable.

For the windshield you should try adding something like a x-creen from MRA, but as I said it might
worsen the noise level, also my last helmet is so aerodynamic now that I could ride without a screen.

Any ideas what i can do about this bolt that's on the crash bars digging into my leg?, it's bruised up from it, shame to have to take them off.

Try to swap the left and right hand side bolt.
I had the same problem with the right hand side.
After swapping the bolts, it's all good.

Cheers

 Thats a really horrible design for that bolt on those crash bars. Could do some damage too. Why on earth didnt they make them so they sit flush with frame. Thats just dumb.

As for screens,  the screen on the gen 3 800s is about a million times better than the one on the earlier models. I resorted to doing the opposite of what everyone always seems to suggest and chopped mine down. Yes there was wind but it wasnt sending me deaf. No screen can stop the wind; it can only deflect it and more often than not it only creates another problem. It is a motor cycle so wind I expect and discomfort I avoid.

All Tiger 800 seats are interchangeable but only XRT and XCA bikes are wired for the heated seats.

I was told by the seller it would only fit the 2016 so cancelled it, i'll need to get the correct part number.
