BATZEN SCREEN ADJUSTER WANTED
« on: February 17, 2018, 01:46:47 pm »
Good day, everyone.

I have a 2017 Honda Africa Twin.

Where can I buy the Batzen screen adjuster, please? And ... price, please?

Thank you for your assistance!

Hi El Lobo, I am not trying to talk you out of it at all but there was a time many years ago that I have experimented extensively with higher screens, extenders etc but in the end the standard screen was still the best option.

I have a Givi airflow screen on my bike.
It works well because, you can actually adjust the height as you ride.

I'm pleased there are other options, Jaco 1985! Wind noise has been the major reason why I've had to think twice on more than one occasion before going on a ride. The noise (I've gone to the extreme - got special earplugs made by the Ear Institute) is horrific (even with my much-vaunted Arai Tour X-4.

A lot of wind and wind noise comes through between the tank and the forks. Itcauses a lot of buffetting.

That looks cool! I, even this morning, once again (did that on Thursday as well) ducked my head forward, i.e. lower than the top of my standard screen, and found that the wind noise instantly disappeared. So it seems that a higher screen may work (I hope!!!)

I have one of the Givi airflow screens if you want. I found it did not work for me. I also have a touratech screen extender thing that clips on top of the screen. worked a bit better, but standard screen works for me. I found a tank bag eliminates a lot of the buffering that I am experiencing.... odd.

I have found that a proper helmet is worth the money, cause you are gonna stand up at some point on dirt and cruise at 120km/h, then a screen has no effect, especially if you are doing long distances standing up.
I can't talk for your Arai Tour X-4, but I can say that my cheap offroad helmet was brilliant standing up, even looking back or to the side the wind did not catch the helmet badly, but it is not a practical helmet, especially in cold weather like Lesotho...
