Glad the screen worked so well but not a surprise. Paul had that screen on his M800 when we went to Normandy. He came from Newcastle - Normandy (France) & back to Newcastle & he had nothing but praise for his screen. They also look so bloody good, very fitting for the bikes look.  Screen or no Screen !!!!! 3498837457

Hi John,

That looks like a neat screen. I also like that it is fitted to the fork stanchions - should be nicely secured.  Screen or no Screen !!!!! 2645662097  

I was leant a Givi screen that mounts on the headlight bolts when I first got my VX ..... & whilst it helped deflect some airflow I was not convinced it was well fixed ...... but in fairness I did not have any significant problems. (Probably me being sceptical) This was a temporary loan from one of my mates as he'd taken it off one of his previous bikes - but was due to get a Hornet 600, which I regarded that the Givi screen would be wanted for (I try not to over-stay my welcome when being the recipient of good will gestures). I'd rate it as reasonable VFM & it is at the cheaper end of the screen market. Being a smallish unit the benefits are limited & you will have to decide if the 'look' is right for a cruiser. (I prefer a bigger screen on a cruiser)

I then got an ERA screen (Second hand - but 'as new') with the separate adjustable air-foil blade.
I am pleased with how this works  Screen or no Screen !!!!! 102087026 , but it probably would look 'wrong' on a cruiser.  :what1: 
The VX is a 'traditional roadster' type bike.

ERA do make other screens without the separate blade & some of them would possibly be better on cruisers (The ERA range seems to cater for a wide range of bikes).

One thing I was uncertain of with the ERA screen was that it is handle bar mounted - on just two brackets/support rods, but there is good adjustability. You have to tighten the fasteners in the nylon/plastic fittings a few times (Probably as the brackets take up the shape of the handlebars - but it does stay in place at the expected range of speeds  Screen or no Screen !!!!! 3498837457  (i.e. anything the VX is capable of .... no unkind comments please !  ... I can see an open goal there !  Screen or no Screen !!!!! 3213823784 )
The nylon/plastic fittings for the handlebars are sized for 25mm bars with an adapter sleeve for conventional 22mm bars (As on the VX).  So I could endorse the ERA handle bar mounted screens if that helps anyone.

Cheers folks  Screen or no Screen !!!!! 256401   Yam

It looks much better than the cowl they have fitted to your bike,personal view,could not understand Suzuki putting a cowl on headlight.The way the screen is built will give you good protection from wind.

Taken my screen off recently and I'm really enjoying riding without it at the moment. It's like riding a different bike !
Haven't done any serious high speed trips though having said that ... The novelty will probably wear off very quickly if / when I do !
