Hi

This is my first post on this site.
I have only had my bike for a couple of months, and I'm very happy with it.
The CRF1000l is my first Adventure bike. Before I have owned plastic rockets and old 80' bikes.

I came over the screen adjuster a couple of weeks after i got my bike, and ordered it before it was in production.

I got mine, and installed it last week. (Think i got from the first batch)

Went for a test ride this weekend, and i'm very satisfied.
My bike had the "Adventure-kit" with the larger windscreen. The bracket have only 4 mounting points (The larger screen have 6) so I had to go back to the original windscreen.

In the low position, there is no more noise or wind than the original setup, even thou the screen sits a cm or two further out from the bike.

In the highest position, it gives at least the same wind protection as the larger screen from the adventure kit. The angle is a little different so for me, the original screen with the adjuster feels better than the larger screen. (i'm 182cm, seat in highest position)

Compared to the larger windscreen, my shoulders is slightly more exposed with the original screen and the adjuster, but that is ok. The larger screen gives a lot of vibrations if you are behind a big truck when the speed is 100kmh +. With the original screen and the adjuster, this is much less noticeable.

The quality is very good. Looks like its made by an enthusiast, its solid and easy to use with gloves.

I have the version with the GPS mount. (Still waiting for my GPS, Garmin zūmo 595LM)

I also have a tripmaster somewhere in the mail, so my only worries is how to fit them both..

Hello

I got a adjuster too from batzen and i must say the build quality looks good.
the shipment was fast and i got the adjuster with the gps mount.
I had a hard time to keep the gps at the same level when i was hitting deep potholes i had to use a allen key (inbus) to secure it as hard as possible.(gps = garmin 660)
Will have to see if it holds up during offroading.(maybe superglue the hinge when needed).
Adjusting the screen is easy and i think you can find a sweet spot ,i am 1,83m high and i needed just a few cm to get it right .
i get lots of air flow on my chest with the original screen.
And i rode with my mx helmet, i could get the air flow on top of the peak (screen high position) but then i got buffeting and my helmet started shaking.
with the screen in low position +/_ 2 a 4 cm higher than original i liked it the most i got a nice air flow in the helmet and the chest too without my helmet shaking in all directions.
Note i do ride with custom ear plugs and i don't think there was a position i could ride without them ,but i only rode for 600 km with the screen adjuster and i haven't tried my other helmets .
My overall conclusion :
I it worth it :YES , i think being able to shift the screen to find your sweet spot is great.
the installation is easy and the overall quality is good.

Hi Loanster, many thanks for your feedback
To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 5 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.
. About the GPS and keeping in position, was it some vibrations at the GPS or did the hinge turn down? Normally no alen key needed, you can tighten it very firmly with the lever, you can´t turn it completley 360° because there is not enough space, but if you pull out the lever and turn back, you can use it like a kind of ratchet and step my step the hing is tighten very firmly, same like using an alen key for the bolt on the right site.

Best regards from Bavaria,
Wolfgang

Hi Wolfgang
when i hit some bigger potholes the gps tilted down a little and i had too push it up again.
with lever alone i could not secure it enough because the bold would turn with lever.
I had too put the allen key in the bold and hold the lever to tighten the hinge enough.
And for now it is good .
