Thank you all for your feedback on the issue. I got some stuff in order, and a pretty extensive list of other things to try if that doesnt work! I will report back with my findings.
I fitted a windscreen extender from Amazon £21 and also a air dam on the fuel tank to stop the air coming up from the forks. This was from eBay again about £25 . All good now. I am 6ft 2 tall . Have the seat on the high setting as well.Hello all!
I have an issue with wind noise on my 2021 Adventure Sports, and wondering if anyone else has experienced it and preferably solved it. While riding my bike home from the dealership I didnt really think that much about it, but I was comming from a Harley Sportster. So wind shields and such is still a mystery to me. But I have of course tried it both at the top and at the bottom setting.
Anyways, as I have done some more kilometres the annoyance is growing. I tried googling and searching, but didnt really find much about it. What I did find was someone recommending a fork shield. So I ordered one from swegotech.com. Well, I recieved it today, and sadly it didnt help with the issue at all.
I am 185cm (just over 6 feet) if it matters, but even when I try hiding behind the wind screen the noise is there. If I stand up on the pegs, the noise disapears, so its not my helmet (Schuberth C3). I have an Ermax Touring screen ordered, but it wont be here until next month it seems.
Any tips or pointers? Am I doing anything wrong? I would love to be able to hear the engine roar instead of the wind...
those upper wind deflectors look ideal. I wonder if they do them for the CRF1000 standard bikeJust a quick update from my part:
Fitted these wind deflectors, and I think they helped a little. I got almost no wind noise up untill 60 km/h, but at high speed its the same as before.
I am expecting this new windscreen this week, hopefully that will give some better results.
Thank you all for your replies and feedback. It is a bit weird that different solutions work for different people, maybe I should get scientific at start plotting the different variables
Ditto....I have the same helmet/headset and have all the same issues that you describe. I can barely hear music with the Sena but for unknown reasons, phone calls are better.....can't figure that one out.I ride a 2020 base model and agree the wind noise is HORRIBLE. I added a tall Honda OEM screen - and even installed a Batzen windscreen adjuster (your bike already has an adjuster I think) - added the swegotech / wind deflectors (upper and lower). I tried riding with the screen all the way up / all the way down / in the middle - not much different. My helmet is a Shoei Neothech II (modular) which is supposed to be one of the quietest helmets on the market - but I have to turn the volume on my Bluetooth (Sena specifically designed for the Neotech II) all the way up in order to even marginally hear music or communicating with other riders. I even bought the eargasm earplugs as they claimed to filter the "windnoise" - wish I had that $30 bucks back. Not offering any solutions here just jumping on the bandwagon looking for any pointers. For context I am more vertically challenged than @Ustabil (5'8")...
These appear to be for the AS model only. I didn't see any for the non-AS model.Try these wind deflectors
Yes I think someone did a couple of years ago, and said it made a huge difference - in Fact I think he just swivelled them inwards.I know it's not a permanent solution but, has anyone tried a brief ride with the mirrors removed to identify how much buffeting or wind noise is being generated by the mirrors?
go ride a 2010-2013 Ducati Multistrada. That thing will turn you into a bobble head it buffets so bad at speed. Don’t even try to wear a dual sport style helmet on the thing, the visor will rip your head off.So just got the ''fork hole deflector'' and my oh my, I couldn't believe it, the angry turbulence that shook my helmet from 100km/h forward was gone ...
I experimented with sticking my hand in the hole before and it affected the turbulence, but I never expected the deflector to fully fix the problem.
So I have a 2020 ATAS and I very much recommend buying this piece of plastic. It's a shame honda didn't put some kind of a fix in place, they must have known about the problem - selling a touring bike that shakes and vibrates the helmet on highway speeds is just crazy.
Sorry for the delayed reply, currently on vacation.Did the OP find a solution on his 2021?
