Here's a fairly long advrider (AU) 2010 thread regarding Eagle Screens. Be sure to read all of it to get the full effect

I am moving back to the triumph touring screen. Lower wind flow that hits about mid chest, but it keeps my head in clear air. Best solution for me so far.
Agreed ! I tried living with the taller optional Triumph screen but it was very noisy and turbulent as it forced the air into my face, not above or below it.
The OEM screen pushes the air below my helmet, and leaves my head in mostly clean, and mostly quiet, air.
On my ST 1100 the OEM screen sounded like a tornado with it's turbulence. I added a 6" taller Rifle screen and the air went over my helmet leaving me in a quiet pocket of air.
I much prefer riding in a sportbike's
clean air than a touring bike's
air pocket. The stock screen on my Aprilia is my favorite.... even quieter than the Sprint's.
Have you considered adding a laminar lip or MRA X-creen add-on variable to your stock screen ? The MRA comes with a clamp on option, so it can be removed depending on the riding conditions. The small MRA screen allows you to adjust the height and airflow to suite your needs ... or so they say !
I may try the MRA X-creen this summer on my ZX14R's small stock screen. The goal being to get the most coverage "below" my helmet, not above it.
The ZEDX14 pics below show the MRA attached to a Zero Gravity ST "tall" screen in an attempt to get out of the wind . In my opinion, a futile effort when working with a sportbike style screen.
Up .... Add this to your Grand Touring screen and you can likely sail downwind to your destination
Down ...or anywhere in between !
