Cut down Turismo Screen v.3

Have been trying a few variations on the Puig screen and have ended up with something that seems to work for me
With the stock screen I encountered a fair bit of buffeting and noise at c 70-80mph in either position
Bought a Puig screen and found it even worse
Iím 6ft , Shoei GT-air helmet and wear a mesh jacket so probably not the best material for smooth airflow
I originally cut the screen in line with the top of the fairing as shown
I found it better than the stock screen at speed but noisier between 40-60mph

Have now cut the screen down even further (c 50mm) and relocated the Sat Nav to the bars
The change has been worthwhile
Much quieter and clean air that seems to hit below my shoulders
Was able to ride at 80mph with visor up Ė no problem
There may be gains in cutting the Stock screen as @Qwandree and @TedW have done as it has a smoother profile
Has been a worthwhile project for me though with the Puig

Nice work. I thought about cutting my puig tall screen when I did my stock screen but the veins on it were sort of daunting.

Interesting. Are you noticing the buffeting with the screen in the up position or in the lowest? I find that with the Puig double bubble and it fully extended up there is very little wind. Maybe your sitting straight up? Or don't have it fully extended.

Thanks. Youíre right. A steady hand was needed across the veins. Made a better job of those than I did on V.2!

I found it noisy in both positions. I think the type of jacket and helmet can play a big part. Reading the forum, a lot of people are very happy with the Puig screen, but I just couldnít get it to work for me

If you go onto their website they have a third option. It's a spoiler on top of the regular double bubble they offer. I've seen some guys have them on their bikes when they show off pictures. Maybe they will speak up.

I've seen people riding with this add-on and they claim it's much better then the Puig screen alone but to me it looks ugly. I have the same problem with the stock screen and I am also 6ft (183cm). Bought Puig screen 2 years ago and it works better in lowest position but in high it's too noisy. I prefer it in Winter and in rain when I get better protection. In Summer I think, cutting down original screen could be the best option. Now the question is just how much is the best to reduce noise and buffeting. Great project!

How did you proceed to cut it?

Little trial and error but basically

Cover screen in low tack masking tape (screen still on bike )
Roughly free hand draw a line where you feel you need to cut to
Remove screen and finalise the cut line – I used a bendy architect rule for the curves
(At this stage I made a darker paper template and attached to the screen to check how the new cut down version would look)
For cutting I used a Dremel and a series of Dremel cutting plastic cutting disks (the slower the
better across the ridges on the Puig screen -stock will be easier I think)
You may need to use wet and dry sandpaper depending upon your finished cut line to smooth out any high spots
You can achieve a neat finish to the cut by pulling a clean Stanley blade across it – I found this to be effective
Finished off with Dremel polishing attachment

Agree Marko - I personally didn't like the look of the vario screen -they do work though, had one on my KTM

I hear that some Multistrada owners change to the carbon Pikes Peak short screen which helps on the noise/buffetting
