Can finally report back on the Puig screen having had chance to ride 300 plus miles.. It works, in as much as I am not getting the head bashing turbulence that I was at higher speeds like on motorways and national limit dual carriage ways. In my case the screen works best at the highest setting and strangely if I'm tempted to lower my head behind the screen the buffeting gets worse.. It is not perfect and nowhere like the protection I had on the Tiger.... But it is enough to stop motorway miles being a problem...  Noise levels are down also as I would expect and overall I think it is money well spent... thanks for the advice... now guys, a question, are radiator and oil cooler guards recommended by you and if they are which do you recommend.....

I have the Puig screen and find it better than the standard screen for less turbulent airflow but I get a lot more noise in my helmet with it.

Red guard is cheap insurance in my opinion evotech one is good but I guess they all the same really if you buy from a reputable manufacturer

back onto rad guards,, a look around this forum and internet in general seems to lead me to Beuwolf. Easy to fit, one screw no need to remove fairings....! big plus if you are a useless prick like me ... all other  rad guards seem to be difficult to fit , tricky and need the removal of fairings..  Is this true ??????   If it is true.... is the Beuwolf inferior ???

No the Beuwolf are OK , fitted one to mine and as you say just need to remove the bottom
bolt on the rad to fit it although I stuck some extra rubber draught excluder on the inner edges
to make sure it doesn't rub the rad .
Oh and your right you don't have to remove the fairing either .

+1 with the extra draught excluder. Easy fitting, no fairing removal.  :028:

Got mine from the NEC bike show discounted price [ can't remember how much ]
Went for the polished S/Steel type because thats all they had left [ last day of the show ]
The only niggle although very small was the fact that all the edges were quite sharp and me being
a fussy git spent half a hour in front of the TV rubbing them down nice and smooth .
Other than that they are well made and look up for the job .
