Better wind protection, improved aerodynamics - it makes you wonder why double bubbles aren't fitted as standard
SKIDMARX have developed a double bubble screen for the all-new Suzuki GSX-R1000K9.
The screen, which is available in clear and tint, screens is fabricated from 3mm acrylic, using information and experience from top race teams, including Worx Crescent and TAS Relentless Suzuki. The company claim the screens enhance the aerodynamics of the bike, by significantly increasing the size of the air pocket behind the screen to provide greater protection at speed for the rider.
The GSX-R1000K9 double bubble fits uses the existing mounting points and fasteners, so no drilling, cutting or special tools are required. Coloured versions are also available for a £6 surcharge.
Available in clear and tinted options, both priced £49.95 each; a standard version is also available at £39.95.

They're not fitted as std 'cause they make more noise, horrid things, the lower the screen, the quieter they are. Just try lifting your head up over the top of your screen and see how much quiter it is with less buffeting
I'd love to see someone make a lower screen for sport touring bikes, my VFR800 has very bad buffeting and noise yet I go for a ride on something like a CBR600RR and its so much quieter (and comfortable).

I also have a VFR 800 and it suffers badly from wind noise. The wind gets that bad that at high motorway speeds my helmet is trying to lift off my head. When you duck down under the screen the noise is unbearable and I also get a backache. Any suggestions? Would a double bubble cure this?
