Totally agree.

As said before, it's a no brainer.

For those still pondering on whether to change the standard horn to the Denali Soundbomb mini horn... it's not a lot of money. Its just 24 and 5 minutes to fit, so what's stopping those considering it not to just simply go ahead and do it  :084:

Im afraid that I wont be changing the horn to a mini sound bomb. I had one fitted to my R1200GS and in my humble opinion, it was no louder (confirmed by the decibel output) than the OEM horn but a lower tone, the MS horn is no worse then the Beemer. Just my opinion guys.

Sure is!

When fitted the correct way round it was too high for me and was hard to look over the screen - which I prefer to do.

There has been so much discussion (and confusion!) on replacement screens that I said that I would try this cheap accessory from 'WISH'

It has cut down the buffeting by at least 70% and while it doesn't look very attractive, it is very effective in this position.

I no longer look for replacement screens as I am very satisfied with the result it gives me.

Having read all your collective Wisdom I am going to try standard screen first, but am  attracted to either official Ducati touring screen or the looks of the puig touring screen.  I am coming of a BMW r 1250 rt so have been spoilt for element protection.
There are not a lot of comments re the actual Ducati touring screen so I wondered if there was more collective wisdom? the Puig did seem to have a little more width and pleasing lines... but I know nothing.

Ok trial run done today, standard screen ok, apart from Mway where I needed to bow my head a little.... Puig touring now ordered from Pyramid. It seems to be the majority choice.

Interestingly it looks like Ducati have significantly changed the design of the screen on the new Multistrada V4 - and it looks like they've really nailed it this time from the feedback so far.
Sometimes you need a really crooked road to get your head straight

Noise and buffeting neglible below 40, at Motorway speed needed to duck down a little bit, where it was calm enough, but sitting up there was a definite wind blast (earplugs may have helped, no buffet though. Not much worse than RT with half raised screen
