I know this has been discussed many times on AT forums but wanted to post my experience with the forkshield. Being very sceptical when it comes to nicety or necessity I didn't think it would (for me) make any difference. I thought Honda would've solve any issue during R&D in the wind tunnel and buffering was caused by the screen depending how tall you are. I'm 6' and my helmet was suffering from wind buffering at speeds over 50mph on the road so I thought I'd bite the bullet and buy a forkshield. I didn't buy the SWEGOTECH but a leather alternative and wow what a difference. It definitely worked for me with both peaked and unpeaked helmets. I can honestly say its made riding the AT more pleasurable. Off road it makes no difference at all due to the speeds. I would recommend this route first before buying different screens (I have a standard screen btw) plus at $30 or so a lot cheaper.
