Batzen screen adjuster and GPS mount

Hi all,

I ride a Triumph Explorer, as many riders have problems with wind noise and buffeting on their bike, about 3 years ago I created a toolless screen adjuster for this bike which worked great and a part like this was not availalbe on the market. 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:
