All of the screws on mine have gotten really rusty. I park in a garage.

Installed this deflector and got rid of 90+% of the buffeting. Good enough that I think I'll stick with the stock screen now.

Installed one of these, have the stock screen and a MRA Vario screen hard to tell with the tall screen if it makes much buffeting difference but it does make a huge difference to the amount of bugs that come up the fork tunnel and into the underside of the helmet. Always had heaps of bugs flying up, worth it just to solve that problem.

Hi all, I've had my AT now for a few weeks and have noticed the vibrations on my helmet. I had the touring screen fitted from new, I've removed the peak from my E1 and still the vibrations persisted. I've fitted the OEM screen and the vibrations continued so have just bought one of these from e-bay . I'ts worth a try and will review when I receive it at the end of April as I'm in the UK. It must be related to the size of the rider / wind ergonomics, I'm nearly six foot tall (180) and have had motorbikes for 30 yrs without this issue. Hope it works.

Do these help with buffeting for a street helmet (no peak)?

I looked through the thread, but didn't see the answer.

Just received mine - seems to improve the situation a lot, so very happy. Certainly no more buzzing, but cross winds still have an effect. For info, I'm 6ft, use a Shoei Hornet ADV helmet, have the Honda touring screen and use the upper seat setting.

To be honest I didn't notice this when testing the product, but the dry climate here in Las Vegas isn't the best to something like this. But you are right, the black screws can get rusty.

So middle of March 2017 we came up with a quick fix for this problem and ship all Forkshields with additional stainless silver steel 304 screws just in case the black screws will get rusty.
Right now I am also testing black stainless steel screws, but I will only order them after they survive the salt water test for a couple of months.

Customers who have probelms with the old screws, please send us an email to [email protected] and we will send you the silver stainless steel screws.

Best regrads,
Swen
