Aftermarket Screen for the Suzuki V-Strom 650

For the Suzuki V-Strom 650 it has a standard screen that can be adjusted to three differnt positions, but you need to undo four screws, move the screen up or down and screw it back in place. You need a screwdriver and about six minutes of fiddling around, which is not ideal.

On its highest setting one of our friends complained that he get ample protection, but gets a bit buffeting on his forehead at 100km/h. So to try and cure it we've fitted a higher aftermarket screen. The aftermarket screen sits about 75mm higher than the standard Suzuki screen.

Fitting the new aftermarket screen took just over six minutes from start to finish. Unscrew the old one and pop the new one in its place with a few additional spacers. The new aftermarket screen comes with a rubber guard which runs round the outside. It looks far more stylish and purposeful than the standard Suzuki screen.
On its highest setting our friend gets now worse juddering than he did from the standard Suzuki screen.

On its lowest setting he can get a similar level of wind buffeting as he did with the original Suzuki screen on the high setting, but there's less noise when cruising at higher speeds. For our friend, that is not really enough to warrang the 3700 THB price tag of the new aftermarket screen, but the light tint and stylish shape looks better and that might be enough for some riders to pay the cash.
