Givi Screen AF6401
« on: May 12, 2021, 09:17:35 AM »
Can anyone advise me if you have attached a Givi screen AF6401 to a Tiger 800 XCX 2017. If so would you recommend this particular screen for successfully sheltering from the wind on a motorway??
Look forward to hearing from anyone.
Thanks
Rgds Simon

Hi Simon,

My 2011 came with one when I purchased it and it's worked great for me, I normally have it set about 1.5" up from the lowest position and at 5'7" it does the job. If I know I'm going to be on large A roads or motorways for a while I tend to put it in a higher position but haven't noticed a massive difference form my usual position if I'm honest.

This is the only screen I've used though so have no comparison to how much better it is over stock.

Welcome to the forum.  :401:

I have one on my 2017 XCx, I'm about 6 feet tall and it did work well wind/buffeting wise. I could cruise at 70 mph happily.

However, I found I wasn't nailing the right handers like I used too, as peripherally I had no line of sight to the road edge. I now run with the top section removed. It still reduces big bug splatter and some buffeting and given my helmet is back in the air-stream I can again clear rain from my visor with a sideways turn of the head (at 60+ mph).  :028:

Yes (2015 not 2017 but they're both Gen 2) and yes. I was in the pre-Covid days using the Tiger as my main commuter bike, 70 miles a day, mostly on motorways, and it was fine. I raise the screen a bit for winter and lower it a bit for summer.
