K1600B AeroScreen:

We've created a more aerodynamically efficient shape by smoothing out the surface contours and perimeter shape. This allows smooth, clean air to flow off the screen while directing it out and away from driver and passenger.

AeroScreens are designed to provide Over-Helmet-Airflow while the top edge is at upper lip to nose level, when raised no more than 2".  While AeroScreens retain full stock adjustability, optimum airflow occurs when the screen is raised 1" to no more than 2".  The more you raise the screen, the more you cut off the airflow that travels along the backside of the windscreen which then increases backpressure.  A taller screen, run at lower positions, will offer better coverage and protection than a shorter screen raised higher than 2".

Taller than stock:
Unlike the stock screen, the tallest point of the AeroScreen is in the center to provide protection to the tallest part of the riders body, the helmet.  A gentle flare at the top directs smooth airflow up and over the driver and passenger's helmets while the driver looks over the screen.

Wider than stock:
By making the widest portion of our screens 5" lower than stock, we've decreased the amount of air that sweeps around the screen as it's raised.  The AeroScreens smooth surfaces are angled out at the sides which also helps direct the airflow out and away from both driver and passenger.  The increased side protection and the overall aerodynamic shape allows the AeroScreen to be run at much lower screen settings.

Factors Involved in Choosing Correct Screen Height:

  • The best way to determine the correct height is to take the measurements.  Click here for instructions on how to make an AeroScreen Height Templates. Please be sure that when you print the .pdf height templates that you select "Actual Size" and not "Fit to Page".

  • 4-AeroScreens to choose from. 

  • Driver's height, weight, inseam, seat and use of handle-bar risers all effect your AeroScreen height choice. ie. Drivers of the same height may require different screens.

  • Screens must be lifted at least 1" to relieve low pressure behind screen.

  • AeroScreens are designed to provide Over-Helmet-Airflow while the top edge is at upper lip to nose level, once raised no more than 2".

  • Safety Consideration; With bike off centerstand and screen Full-Down, you should be able to look over it and see the pavement a car length in front of you.

  • A big factor that we can't account for is the type of protection a person is used to and is comfortable with. Providing your passenger with better protection may also make the next taller screen height a better option as long as you can see the road easily when the screen is full down.

Testimonials:
Installed your windscreen on a K1600B. It is perfect. There is no other word that can adequately describe it. Great protection and no buffeting. Thank you.

 After mounting your X-tall wind shield on my K1600B noticed an immediate improvement to my environment, no buffeting, no noise and much cleaner airflow. This after a 2500 mile trip into the Blue Ridge mountains. Thanks.

CRITICAL:​ K1600B Dark Smoke Screens should not be used when night driving or in other low light/visablity conditions, such as heavy rain or fog where you won't be able to see through the screen. We strongly recommend that you DO NOT ride at night with one of the Smoke screens unless you can see over the screen to the pavement at least 20 feet in front of you when the screen is in the full down position.
