Has anybody successfully paired a windscreen with the stock bars while using the GPR Steering Damper? As you may or may not know, mounting the GPR Damper changes the location of the bars slightly ("it moves the bars 19mm higher and 10 mm"). I don't know how much of an issue this truly is with regards to mounting a windscreen but would like to know what I'm getting into before I buy something. If you've found a combination that works without a lot of hassle, please share your experience. I'm hoping to be able to use either the MRA Double-Bubble or Puig Touring windscreen.

TIA!

Have you thought about trying a windscreen first to see it helps so you don't need the GPR damper? I only mention it because with my 09 I have a MRA Vario TouringScreen Windshield. I have had my 09 up to 165 kph (103 mph) with no issues at all.

There are also a couple of other damper options that won't interfere with any windshield or windscreen.

I have an Ermax screen with the gpr damper. The inside windscreen just barely touches the Guage cluster. It's been on the bike for 8k miles no problems. Some people try to move the guages but it doesn't bother me enough to do so.

I've already got the GPR Damper on my bike. Just looking to cut down on the wind now.

I have the Puig Touring screen on my FZ with the GPR installed. There is still some space between the gauge cluster and the screen, works great.
