Aftermarket low screen

Please could someone recommend a short/low screen for the adventure sports! I am finding that in the rain I am struggling to see through the rain on my visor AND the screen. I have tried rainx but would feel better with a shorter screen. I don’t want to waste my money so I reach out to members to give me some good advice. A link to a product would be great. Thanks in advance, Marc

I'd wanted a shorter screen and had thought of cutting my OEM one down, my problem would likely be, I'd make a bit of a mess, and end up with neither a standard screen nor a usable short screen...

To the OP, a guy on another forum has put a Powerbronze 350mm screen on his and likes it. He stated that there was no discernible difference up to about 55mph but above that he got clean air round his upper body and helmet, akin to riding a naked

That's why I did. Easy enough to do with a jigsaw and a fine blade. Just make sure to mask off below where you are cutting to make sure the saw doesn't scratch the part you are keeping.

Thanks for the ideas, I have seen the power bronze which is front runner at the mo. Not sure if the fixing points will be a problem. The standard screens for AT have 4 fixing points but the ATAS has 6.

I've got an MRA screen on my standard AT, it uses 6 fixing points which are all there, very straightforward to fit.

try the standard screen from a 2017. It's shorter.
Or for even shorter try a Givi D1144BO short screen https://fortnine.ca/en/givi-windshield-black-d1144bo

I'm also looking at the Tourtech mid size. It has a top straight up curve to make wind go up higher? Clear or tinted. Don.
