nixter Interesting. I picked up my new AT a couple days ago and went for my first good highway cruise today. Im 6'4 and found there was lots of wind in my face. I thought this was just from the low windscreen because once I ducked under it, everything was fine. After reading this I'm wondering if I don't experience this fork turbulence because of my height or if I am experiencing it but just not noticing. Hmm

Geoff Stokeld Hi, Had exactly the same problem and your solution works perfectly. Just got some rubber sheet from the hardware store and longer bolts (19mm) and washers. The front bolts are 5mm and rear 6mm which tricked me as the hex heads are identical. I am 1.83m, Shoei Hornet 2 helmet (removing peak didn't help much) and have the high touring screen which did nothing for the buffeting but is more comfortable for me at cruising speeds of 100km/hr. I like to ride visor up and fine at around these speeds. Great bike and even better now.

King of Beers I had this issue with my old Icon full face helmet. It happened on my CBR as well. I have since gone to a Shoei dirtbike helmet and goggles and I have no issues. I have been considering the purchase of a Shoei or an Arai dual sport helmet. I will remember this mod if the issue arises agian.

Kaan Acurol I'm using Shoei GT-Air and It happening to me also. Not relevant to just dual sport helmet. I thought it's all about windscreen.

Filtercottage Will be interested to see if the wunderlich bar bag has the same effect?

Hugh Hey Nordicbiker,

Watched the video on you tube. Super idea. Also, I believe his will keep one's face and clothes cleaner. Here is where i got my rubber: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Steevo I'm having this problem too. There is air/turbulence coming up in the gap between the tank and the forks, put your hand there it stops. Wedged some foam there and it's quiet and smooth. I've order the Wunderlich Barbag this afternoon hoping it might deflect the air.

I'll post results when it arrives.

I'm 6"2 and using an ermax touring screen.

I hope Honda finds a fix, and provide it as a recall...
I am not sure what they would be fixing , this is something that will effect an individual rider based on height, helmet, speed , etc etc etc.
Nobody is going to fix anything.
I have just changed my screen over to the MRA touring screen and its like night and day in how much better it is for me. Most of the buffeting I was getting was on my shoulders so I wanted a much wider screen to move the air off my shoulders. But that said I still own the loudest helmet in the galactic universe the Bell MX9. It simply does not work with me and this bike. So you have to change things to make them work for you. Mr Honda does not have a personal fitting service, thats Harley Davidson.
