Ermax Sport Screen

So I finally picked one up. Last night I painted it per Geoff's recommendation. After I tested it, the light glare from the headlamp is unbearable. Since I got the smoked one, I wanted it slightly transparent, so I taped off from the top bolt holes to the corners. See pics. I will take some pics at night with the headlamp on once I fit it tonight. I will also let you guys know what I think of it once I take a ride with it installed.


No clue why they keep on turning sideways!! Sorry!

So I had a week with it installed and it absolutely deflects a lot of the wind to the chest, but yes Geoff, agreed, it is all at the shoulders and head. In a crouch though it is beautiful. Wind right over my lid.

The light reflecting is still bad, though not nearly as bad as as if I didn't paint it. I still get the reflection from on the matte black, and it does transfer up to the unpainted section, but there isn't any glare. It as absolutely bearable at night, and actually now that I am used to it, I pay no attention to it. I also taped off the DRL behind the screen like Geoff did. That helped a lot more.

You would think the manufacturers would design a bit better to help eliminate the glare behind the shield. I understand though that extending it lower probably helps a lot with wind flow around the rider and catches the wind at the right angle.....at least I hope they tested for this!

A pleasure Chic! It's a great forum for helping each other (as per DaveNZ helping me with juddering brakes at low speed). Great to pay it forward.

How is the wind turbulence/noise at your helmet? I had a bat puig that I returned because the wind noise was so much worse with it.

I am 1.82m Tall, there is less wind on my body and most of the wind passes over my shoulder without creating turbulence on my helmet.
when I exceed the speed limit, I always tend to go a little on the fuel tank.
All good for me. I wanted to remove it and put it back only for long journeys and finally I like the small comfort that it brings so I keep it in place

I haven't noticed any turbulence at all, as a matter of fact, it seems like it reduced the turbulence around my helmet. The wind seems to hit at the shoulders and head area, but noise doesn't seem any more or less inside. If I do a half tuck, lean forward a bit, the wind goes right over me. I am 6'4".
