The AeroFlow Solution
The AeroScreen is taller and wider than the stock screen. Designed to allow the driver to see over the screen while
providing optimum protection for both driver and passenger.
airfoil shape on the AeroFlow AeroScreen allows air to flow smoothly over
both sides of the screen, and when lifted to it's optimum operating
height, balances the low-pressure behind the screen, eliminating
back-pressure. We opted for a smooth, aerodynamic foil shape for our
screens because we believe better protection is not achieved with
gimmicks, it's created by better design.
The "hot-ticket" for some aftermarket screen manufacturers and screen
buyers is a NACA shaped cut-out on the screens. These
are supposedly going to relieve "back-pressure", we feel that
this type of design does not work, especially on an adjustable height
screen. The NACA shaped cut-outs we've seen would
actually disrupt airflow over the screen and, based upon our testing,
increase back pressure.
In addition to the smooth airfoil shape, our screen design utilizes our Patent
Pending "Laminar Flow Plate" design. The "Laminar Flow Plate" attaches to the
dash, underneath the AeroScreen, with Dual-Lok. The AeroScreen is contoured to
increase airflow on the backside of the screen, the "Laminar Flow Plate" helps
control this airflow. As air from both sides of the screen merges off of the
flared top and sides, it smoothes the air leaving the screen, increasing the
envelope of protection for driver and passenger, providing smooth,
over-the-helmet airflow for 2-up riding, while allowing the driver to look over
the screen. No turbulence, no helmet buffeting and no back-pressure.
The screen is also contoured so the top is at a shallower angle pushing it
closer to the driver. Since the screen operates at shallower angles than stock
or other aftermarket screens, some beta-testers reported a 2 to 3 MPG increase
in gas mileage. These results have not been verified or professionally tested,
and are repeated here only as beta-tester comments.
Fits Both Adjustable and Fixed ST1300's
We offer 2 versions of the Honda ST1300 AeroScreen to accommodate drivers of
both the electrically adjustable ST's and the '03 fixed-screen models. Both
versions use stock mounting brackets and locations. No holes to drill, nothing
extra to purchase.
Wider Than Stock
The difference between the Sport and Touring is in the width. The Sport
screen allows some cooling air to your torso while the Touring screen offers a
wider envelope of protection.
Inside measurement at top mounting hole, side to side.
Touring: 27 1/2"
This measurement is like a hard ruler across the backside
of the windscreen when mounted.
Height Is Not As Important As Effectiveness
It's not how much taller than stock that's important, it's how well the design
works. The Standard Height AeroScreen is actually 1/4" shorter than the
stock screen, BUT, due to it's aerodynamic design and efficiency, can be run
4" to 6" lower than the stock screen, and still get air over the driver's
Standard Height AeroScreen is 1/4" shorter
Medium Height AeroScreen is 1" taller than stock.
Tall Height AeroScreen is 2" taller than stock.
Extra Tall Height AeroScreen is 3" taller than stock.
AeroScreen Dimensions, Mounted on Adjustable ST1300
For electrically adjustable screen ST's, our screens are designed to perform
best when mounted in the "low" windscreen mounting bracket position. The
Dimensions shown are for screens mounted at the "low" position on the adjustable
Measurements are from the back of the small, triple-clamp cover directly behind
the ignition key, and between the handle-bars (see photo).

The best way to determine the correct height, is to measure the heights
available and go with the tallest one you can easily/comfortably see over.
The first dimensions are for the screens in the "Full-Down Position", where the
outer edges of the screen sit about 3/4" above the mirrors.
All of our screens are designed to operate at much lower settings than with
stock or other aftermarket screens. You still have the full range of
adjustability as the Stock screen. AeroScreens will continue to offer good
airflow thru 80% of the vertical travel.
Screen height recommendations are based upon beta-tester results and customer
use. Suitability may vary by individual based upon driver height, weight,
inseam, type of helmet worn and bike set up: bar-risers, after market seats
(taller, shorter), additional seat cushions, and seat height setting used.

I received my screen for the ST1300 Tuesday and installed it that evening.
Detailed, easy to follow instructions and an immediate improvement in the bike.
Much quieter air flow around my head. I also received a demo screen and still
can’t find any scratch or flaw of any type. I knew I could trust an “old guy”
from Cleveland to build a better windscreen! I would recommend this to anyone
riding an ST1300. [More]
