Any six footers or taller tried a larger screen?
Although I don't get buffeting as such, I do get a lot of wind noise depending on the direction of the wind. Riding a mate's Bullet 500 (no screen) showed a significant improvement.

For reference, my screen is in the forward position to clear my barkbusters. Maybe that's part of the problem. In anycase, I'm going to remove the screen to see what difference that makes

I added one of those wind deflectors to my V Strom, which are known for very serious buffeting, and it made a huge difference.

9fingers - Is the TY350 make a good trail bike, or too trials biased for casual use? The ones I see for sale look like they'd work for both, but I've never spent time on one, just an ancient Bultaco 350 Sherpa and a Honda TL125. Used they seem to range $2000 - $3500, affordable enough. - ACR -
