I just found it on the internet. Somebody use this type of windshield? I did not find any experience about it.  :005: :005: :821: :821:

For mirror extenders I just brought some cheap ones from e-bay, (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/303358821730) they were perfect:-)

For the screen I found Puig was great on the motorway but got in my eye line when on the country roads which had elevation so I went for a PowerBrone standard screen (https://www.powerbronze.co.uk/bmw-s1000xr-15-19-410-b120.html)  that was 2-3cm shorter

Thanks for all the very useful info guys.
Gary, Peter,
Can I ask how tall are you?

I just want to make sure I don’t end up with my helmet in the turbolence while at high speed on the motorway.

Thanks!

187cm although I think I slouch when riding!!! I found the PowerBronze was good for me in the "down" position on twisties and motorway, never needed it raised - hope that helps.  Peter

The 2019 I recently bought came with a Puig Touring Screen. I think it's a bit ugly but I'm surprised at how little buffeting and wind noise there is, even in the low position. I'm 6' tall with a 34" inseam. I had an MRA Vario on my Multistrada and I could never seem to find the right adjustment to give me the best wind protection which is why I was so surprised with the Puig performance. I will probably buy a Puig sport screen for summer but only because I think it looks much nicer than.
