Adrian's Triumph Tiger 800 - Screen Options
If you want to contact me about anything on this site please email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
The day I purchased my new Tiger 800XCx I fitted a clear Puig Touring Screen. The standard Triumph screen is quite good but it is low
and distant and there is no adjustment. I cover high miles and my test of a good screen is:-
1. I can see over it.
2. It will not allow bugs to hit my visor.
3. There is minimal wind noise.
4. When I duck down slightly at speed there is no change in wind noise.
5. When I sit normal then raise slightly at speed the buffeting increases.
All this means I have found the sweet spot . I am also realistic, this is a motorcycle, there is always wind and buffeting, especially in cross
winds, no screen is perfect, it is all about finding an acceptable compromise.

is 4" or 100mm taller, it is wider and I think it looks
The Puig Screen comes with metal brackets to replace
the OEM plastic brackets and it offers screen
adjustment. I replaced the nuts supplied by Puig with
locking nuts and I fitted them with threadlock.
