Highway Hawk Screen came today. Only took four days from the UK to get to German, so well impressed with that.
Bit off a bugger to fit, trying to get it all square. Not had a chance to ride it yet, cause of the dirty rain clouds so can
not tell how much off a difference it makes. Also unsure what the best position to have it in tell i get it on the road.
Any and all tips welcome.

Here's a few piks, hope you all like. Its quite a thick screen as well, don't know if that will show on the pictures.





Conical fork mountings. Fair bit off adjustment can be made






Shes still getting there.

She looks bloody ace, I love it. Best and only tip that I know of is to buy or make lowers cause they really help the screen perform at its best. Sim and Alfie and a few others have made them

That looks an excellent piece of kit   I'd start at the same angle as the forks and then adjust as required? probably won't need much adjustment from the fork angle

That looks like an excellent quality bit of kit, adding the lowers as said will add so much more comfort.

Agree with the others, angle as per forks and definitely fit lowers. The top of the screen should be level with the bridge of your nose or so you can see around 50ft (15m ) in front of you over the top of it. This should ensure the air goes over the top of your helmet.

Looks nice! I really like the shape of the trim on the front. Looks alot better than just flat steel that the rest use.

Thanks for every one's nice comments. Having g a bugger of a time trying to get the angle right. 
Had it the same as the forks and it felt like my head was vibrating and my vision went blured. 
Made it a bit more up right and it was'nt so bad. Screen is as high as it will go, level with my mouth. Will try again tomorrow.

Hi Arron if any of your mates have got lowers fitted try them on yours or make some up there is a link somewere on them,you can mess all day with the screen,and most of the time it is the fact you need lowers.I hope this helps a bit.

Thanks alfie. Been looking at different threads and that's the conclusion I've come up with.
Why aren't lowers included with the screen as it's obviously needed.  Don't tell you that in the blog
Do they. Must admit not to keen on the look of lowers. Have seen the National Cycle Chrome lowers. Just need to do some digging around to source some.

It is amazing the difference lowers make, although if the top of the screen is level with your mouth that seems to be too low.

I have purchased the same screen and can confirm it is really well made. I have a 2014 C800 L4. However, after fitting it I found the lower edge of the right side bracket comes into contact with the ignition key when in the 'off' position. In the 'On' position the bracket clears the key bu about 1mm. The brackets are mounted high up to the lower edge of the top yoke.
The dealer has been very helpful and offered me a full refund which I did not want as I really like the screen. Over the phone we compared bracket lengths and these are identical. He contacted Suzuki and they said there has been no modifications to the forks from previous years and the dealer has bikes in stock with this screen fitted and they have had no problems.
At the dealers suggestion, I have had a key cut with a smaller head and this is just about clears the bracket, but is a close run thing.
Has anyone else had a problem with this.
Thoughts: is it possible to rotate the position of the ignition lock? if so that may be the answer.

Hi Tom any chance of some photos to see what you mean,would be easier for members to give some advise for you.      Aaron: I always find that with a full face and closed visor the wind noise and sound is always worse.You could try a set of 2"bar risers,if any of your mates have them fitted to see if that helps,screens are good things but can be very frustrating getting them right.

Hi ya Alfie, Mick
Ive got a flip front helmet and i find the wind noise almost stops when i have it open. 

Tom.
It wasn't until i read your post, that i went out and had a look. As you can see by the pics, I've been lucky as it doesn't come into contact with the key. However it it very very close.


Very close


Also i had to move the screen up a notch to get rid of the buffeting, as i found the screen to be just that little bit low for me (5'9"). Its not ideal but there is no movement in it at all, as the top bolts, although not attached to anything stop it from moving.




Inside view




outside view

The brackets as you can see , are as far up the forks as they can go. I padded the back of the brackets out with pipe insulation foam, That way they did not slide down and sat right at the top.






Hope this is of some help
