Looks like a great idea and fit for those of us who want wind protection when touring but having the windscreen out of the way at lower speeds.
When I get my bike and test the wind protection I'll let you know - looks like a great way to combine windscreen and GPS.

Lot of Explorer riders worldwide know the part as "Batzen screen adjuster" and even my Nickname is well known.
If you want to have a look and for reputation, hereīs a link to my parts at international Explorer forum:

Sold more than 1000 of my parts till now, because the part works great and offer best service. Itīs a commercial side job, donīt live by developing, producing and selling my parts - always create parts for my current own bike and the bikes of my friends, furthermore only parts wich are not available otherwise on the market. .....ok, my wife always says Iīm little bit bike-mad

Why now here? Friend of mine got the new AT and was not pleased with wind protection, so he asked me if it would be possible for me to create a screen adjuster for the AT as I have done for the Explorer. After some storm in my head

several prototypes and testing, the part is ready now and I startet a first 50s batch witch will be available soon. My height is 1,78m, with the standard screen of the AT I could ride up to 100km/h with visor open, helmet is X-lite 441 Enduro and war glasses. Not bad, but could be improved we thought, best without a "monster screen" .
Hereīs the result of the AT adjuster, parts are made of steel, laser cutted and will be powder coated with an additional special undercoat which is 6000h salt resistend, best powder coating quality available.
Caused by construction top of screen in lowest position is about 2.5cm higher and there is an adjust range of 7cm, total of 9.5cm possible additional height. Several after market screens can be even mounted on the adjuster.

There will be 2 versions available, No. 1 only for height adjustment and No. 2 with a integrated GPS mount above the speedo, as you can see on the pics.
Would be nice to get some feedback, what you think about the part

How easy and fast can be adjusted in height:

It is a very good idea is it possible to get smaller thumb screws on the front of the screen ?
Does it mean that you can not use the stock Honda GPS mounting bar it is hard to see how that works !!!

I like it very much.

great. I send an email yesterday. My only point now is the compatibility with the Tripmaster.

Bonne route

flat ones are hard to grap with gloves and not so easy to tie them well by hand. For me first is function and second is design of the parts, design is worth nothing if it doesnīt work in practice

. Best is a combination of both.
Furthermore this one are very sturdy and made only good experience at the Explorer screen adjuster. Till now not one of about 4000 of these knobs been broken for replacement, so I trust that quality and use them onwards.

With the screen adjuster without GPS mount there is no restriction using the AT GPS bar/tube above the speedo and the Tripmaster.
If itīs possible to mount the combined adjuster/GPS part and the Tripmaster, I As itīs only the first 50s batch in production now, would be also no problem changing the position of the GPS mount a little bit higher if there would be a collission with the Tripmaster. Furthermore it would be possible to mount some spacers beteen the hinge of the GPS mount and the screen adjuster, this way it would come littel bit higher and so enough space for the Tripmaster below.
Iīll find out next days. As the AT which I had for developing the part didnīt have the Tripmaster mounted, and didnīt know about this part, I couldnīt check this out. Iīll keep informed about.
Think nearly every AT after the launch with the free Tripmaster gift will be ordered without this part and only GPS will be in use.
