Re: aftermarket wind screens
- Buffet is the amount of turbulence induced by the air moving from an
area of higher pressure to lower pressure and volume has little to do
with it. For example, cat's-eye vents will reduce the pressure
differential between the front and back of the screen, even though
the faired volume doesn't change. Guys who port cylinder heads, as
well those working with aircraft wind tunnel models, are the first to
say that understanding flow transition is more of an art than a
Since your chest and helmet are part of the flow relationship, start
by simply standing on the pegs and slowly sitting to see where the
best break happens for you and your helmet. It's typically a few
