You’re a good guy. I never meant to sound like I was being a dick about it. Sorry if it came across that way.Let's see...
What I wrote:
"Suzi has an optional touring screen that has the right contours and coverage. A bike doesn't necessarily need adjustable windscreen, if a fixed screen is designed and tested properly. From the looks of it, I expect this GT's wind protection to have a sizable advantage on the N1k. "
What you think I meant:
"...one size and position can fit every rider and every circumstance."
I'd say that is a pretty long stretch. I simply opined that a bike could work well with a fixed screen and doesn't necessarily need an adjustable one. The fact that I followed that sentence immediately with mention of the N1k, it should've at the very least hinted at the scope of my comparison. I only mentioned 2 bikes specifically. Nowhere did I expand it to cover all bikes, every rider and every circumstance.
But I concede I could've have explained better. That ball lies squarely in my court.
FWIW, my point was really in regards to the manually adjustable windscreens I see on quite a few bikes that have very little actual practicality. The worst example I've experienced first hand was the Ducati Supersport S. That bikini screen didn't do squat in any of the positions. All it serves is to let Ducati advertise that it has "adjustable windscreen" in order to lend some sport touring credibility.
N1k isn't quite that bad, but my experiences is that Kawi could've save themselves the troubles and just offered optional screen(s), which they do anyway. A lot of us swap screens on bikes like these. Save that weight and complexity, and spend the R&D yen at the wind tunnel, like Suzi did with the GSX-S1000GT.
N1k's screen adjustability necessitated those silly cutouts to avoid clashing with the handlebars at the lowest setting. I suspect much of the aerodynamic woes came from those stupid cutouts. You look at the pic @rcannon409 posted above of a screen that works much better. They did it by pushing the mounting points forward, which allow them to optimize shape/coverage and avoid those pesky cutouts. To a large extent, that appears to be what Suzi tried to accomplish with the GT.
