  1. ABS and TC light should go on at start up and off once your speed goes past about 10kph.
  2. I think we'd need at least one more person to do this under headlamp mod to confirm it helps because, as was mentioned, peoples interpretation of wind effect vary.
  3. So are you using the aero trim stuff on your cut screen?
  4. Just use the OEM ones listed in the owners manual.
  5. His contact information is in the post above yours.
  6. So you feel like the under light spoiler is giving more benefit than the screen trim?
  7. I taped a .75" OD piece of tubing to the front top of my screen today to try see if it brought the same results as the micro swirl edging. It was not better at all.
  8. So your original plan to get a more quiet ride was to get the wind to hit you lower so your helmet was in cleaner, calmer air but, the solution you have found actually puts the air coming off the screen high enough that the noise is reduced sufficiently. Is that correct?
  9. Yeah, that is true. Mostly interested if you can determine how much help the edging on the windscreen is on its own. I also have the Honda accessory touring windscreen add on that I run sometimes in the winter. Wonder how the edging would work on that. The touring screen raises where the wind hits me but seems to make things louder.
  10. No, it's not a fix for the VFR. Just works on the AT as far as I know. http://www.swegotech.com/Forkshield-Africa-Twin-CRF1000L-stop-ADV-helmet-vibrations.html
  11. good for you for attacking this issue. So is your stock screen that you attached trim to the full, normal screen or has it been trimmed? Also, the fork tunnel covers is something many Africa Twin owners have done to calm the turbulence. Can the screen trim be removed/replaced or is it a one time fitment and it gets messed up removing it?
  12. I've ridden that road several times. While it has a ton of curves and good scenery and for the most part is deserted (you may not see another vehicle for over an hour), the lack of traffic means the road is usually in semi-poor condition with loose rocks often in the turns. For motorcycling purposes, there are more enjoyable roads in the area.
  13. My experience is the same re:no hands or trying to sit very upright. You might try sitting on a sheepskin pad, air hawk, or similar to see what raising your body does for you.
  14. The Crosstourer is also supposed to have good wind management. I was intending my statement to apply to all upright bikes, just that often those bikes can be problematic. I think Honda does a better job than most. My 250L Rally is also not bad with regards to wind noise.
