    I just got the newer Cal - sci windscreen for my 012 and the washers don't do the trick , still binds to the front of the nose cone and would ruin the paint in no time . I could probably get some rubber washers to build up the space but not sure it would work Pretty pissed at having to pay for shipping ( won't get it back ) and the damn thing has to be modified to work . The thing should bloody well fit for the money it costs ! Anybody else have this issue and if so would appreciate any tips to make it work .[/quote]

    Had the same problem on my stock screen. Dealer heated up the bottom with a heat gun and bent it back enough to not touch. Worked great and you cannot even tell that he did it. If you are worried about doing it yourself take it to a plastics fab shop. Would probably take them all of 30 seconds to fix it.[/quote]

    Thanks Canuck1969 , sounds like a fix alright . I'm pretty tempted to fire it back with a nasty note right now but will make some calls to Vancouver next week to see what I can find . You've had some warm weather in Southern Ontario of late . Summer hasn't hit here yet but hoping it changes soon . Take care . Steve

    We had 36C with the humidity the last 2 days. Tomorrow is back to seasonal and no rain. Think we skipped spring and went right to summer.

    Good luck with the screen and let us know how it went.

    Has anyone had any recent experience with the CalSci shields - say within the last 12 months or so on an MY11+ (Gen II) bike? If so, is binding on the front fairing still an issue?

    I just trimmed 60mm off the top with a fine blade jigsaw and added a Wunderlich spoiler on top. Works well.

    I purchased a CalSci recently because I was happy with the first generation and with one I put on a Multistrada. I would not recommend one for the current Stelvio. It will rub without spacers and I wasn't happy with performance. I currently have a x-creen lip on the stock screen.

    Looking at the pics below I borrowed from CalSci's website (I'll return them, I promise...), I guess I'm left wondering where exactly the shield would rub..? In these photos, it appears that the shield is in the lowered position. @kmartin Can you point out where those areas might be? Thanks!

    The top of the dash rubs the inside of the screen. I don't remember for sure if it rubs on the front side of the bodywork. They included 2 big washers to space out the lower mounts, I added 4 more for a total of 3 washers on each side. Dan Ketchpel on advrider made some spacers to move the whole windscreen mount forward by 3/4 inch or so to address this.

    advrider.com/index.php?threads/moto-guzzi-stelvio-merged-threadfest.113158/page-266

    By the way, Sock, I'm still working my way through the advrider thread to see if there's any NTX specific stuff I missed in the last couple years. I'm only up to about page 400 or so but I've seen you in it a lot. I also recall that you've moved on to a Caponord, you still happy with it? I had an '09 Stelvio that was killed by a deer in 2014. I replaced it with a Multistrada, then recently back to the Stelvio. I rode the Caponord when I bought the Multi, I thought it had the best sounding engine, but it just didn't stir me. The most fun, I thought, was the KTM.

    Thanks for the input and and link, Keith. Much appreciated.

    It's a different Sock Monkey on ADVrider - I'm not sure what his alias is here on GuzziTech. (I'm MLCavassa on that forum.)

    I emailed Mark @ CalSci about the rubbing issue. Here's his response:

    "The windshield brackets on the stelvio are slightly adjustable. You have to get inside your fairing to get at these. From the factory they're set randomly. If your windshield touches the fairing, loosen the brackets, tip them backwards a bit, then tighten them up. Italian engineering at its best. . ."

    Has anyone tried this..?

    I had tried shimming out the stock screen to get more airflow behind it, but any more than 1/4" spacers change the screen mounting angles on the bracket too much. I recently had the tank and fairing off for some wiring work and shimmed the mounting brackets out 1/2" with SS washers and linger bolts, nothing fancy. This appears to help with the negative pressure behind the screen while still keeping the wind blast off my chest for winter. Come Spring, I'll go with a tinted CalSci shorty cut narrower to get the most airflow on me possible (my favorite so far is no screen but that doesn't look great).

    I purchased the NTX large screen from CalSci for my 2013 Stelvio about 5 months ago and it works great for me and using nylon or plastic washers of the same thickness instead of the steel washers that were included with the shield the shield does not rub on the fairing. With the large shield I can see over the top of the Cal Sci shield when it is in the low position and look through it when it is in the high position. My only concern is how much water I will get on the dashboard when it rains thanks to the cutout that eliminates turbulence.

    So, I just picked up a used NTX fuel tank to put on my 09 over the winter. With this conversion, I need pretty much everything from the headlights to the seat. Anyone have a stock NTX windscreen they want to get rid of?

    I just bought a 2014 Stelvio which came with an extra tall Puig windshield. I don't know the exact model number but I've made a video of my first two-up ride with my wife on the back and the windshield performed very well while in its uppermost position. Here's the link:

    I'll be making lots of Stelvio videos in the near future and would appreciate views from and especially subscriptions from other Guzzisti. Here's my YouTube channel address: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo0XVTNm0S2gHFRql4PevBg

    On my '09, with the smaller Screen, I found it works much better upside down.
    It sat a little too low though for Winter Riding, so I made some Alloy Plates to lift it, which also moves it forwards a little, creating more of a gap to let air flow up the rear side.
    Absolutely perfect now, zero turbulence/buffeting at any speed.

    Might be worth trying similar Plates on the later Screen, it may give you the results you want, without forking out for a larger one.
