I went with the WRS intermediate screen. On the lowest position it's nice and short for dirt roads (like the base model 2020 AT), on the highest position its about an inch and half shorter than stock so I can see over it ok. Its also slightly wider than stock. The height is very much dependent on the riders height though, you need to work that out before buying anything.
its also reasonably priced compared to some others on offer

I'm hoping this isn't a stupid question, but here goes: My 2020 Africa Twin (NON-AS) has 4 mounting holes for the original windscreen, but I can see two additional mounting holes circled in the photo. I'd like to get a longer windscreen. I'm looking at aftermarket MRA, VStream, and PowerBlades, and photos show a variation of 4 and 6 mounting holes. It looks like the Adventure Sports screens have 6 mounting holes - could I install either windscreen as long as it's made for a 2020+ model? Or are there other differences that make the AS and regular models' screens not compatible.
Thanks for any guidance! View attachment 59212
Unfortunately the base model is narrower than the sport ES windscreen. It'd more than the number of bolts, but their placement is different. I tried the shorty wind screen from the base to my ES. Didn't fit.

Hello, I bought this same screen, it turns out that I see that it touches the rear view mirror when the handlebar is turned to the maximum. does it happen to you too?
I have the same screen no contact issue.

My mirrors also JUST touch at full lock, so I simply am slow and careful when locking the steering column. I never end up with the bars in full-lock position while riding.

18 ATAS here, I found the stock windscreen to be too tall and run a shorter Puig Sport windscreen in warmer weather. To use the stock screen in cooler weather, I drilled new mounting holes 45mm higher and spaced out the windscreen to have more room for Zumo XT gps and phone which works well. I had to slightly enlarge the original holes on the screens with a step bit for the spacers so not to stress the windscreen. For the new holes, a 1/6th pilot hole and careful work with a step bit. The nylon spacers are super glued to the rubber wellnuts so they stay in place when swapping screens. I keep some spare bodywork pushpins in the original holes for spares as well.

With the manual in hand, I limited myself to checking if the handlebar placement is correct. height-wise it was. But measuring with a string, the handlebar was offset 1mm, to one side. I corrected it and not only does it not hit anymore, but it has plenty of space making a stop.

I just got a National Cycle VStream Sport Touring Windscreen in the light tint (#N20068) for my 2020 AT AS DCT delivered today. I've put it on the bike but its going to be a while before I can go for a ride due to lots of snow. I ordered it because I found a lot of the air disturbance seems to be on the sides for me due to the narrow width of the stock windshield.

The stock compared to the VStream. Once mounted they are nearly identical in height but the width is quite a bit more and what I was looking for. I think the new one will be a big improvement but will update in spring when I can finally go for a ride.

It helped me on my 2017 Standard. More than the OEM touring screen, and more than the forkshield.

@Canoeyak or anybody else with the same screen?

So how was the new Vstream this summer, is it;
  1. improvement over OE,
  2. or not so much
  3. any more backpressure, noise etc
  4. is it still fully adjustable like the OE
wondering why they cut 3 openings in the N20068?

also our canadian reseller's website, does not guarantee it will fit 2022 ATAS DCT when you go "Check fitment"?

so as per this forum IF;
  • The ATAS 2022 screen is 110mm (4.3") lower than the 2020/21
  • and the National Cycle graphics compare the 2020 OE
  • and they claim the N20068 is 1" taller then the 2020 OE
  • Then the N20068 when compared to 2022 OE should be 3.3" taller ?
