Old topic , I know.... but I am new to the street triple and infact new to motoring.
So My street triple 2011 came with the flyscreen and the optional visor kit ( triumph A9701199 ).

 I like the style but on the highway at speeds over 75mph it feels as if this screen leads the turbulent air right to my helmet, so I decided to take the visor off , leaving just the flyscreen and give it a try . Today I did a quick ride on the highway ( speed up to 96mph and although the wind now fully hits my chest, I have a feeling my neck has less of a problem.
I am 6 feet tall .
I will do some more rides with the screen on and off because it seems worth trying
At lower speeds ( 55 mph ) it doesn't really make much of a difference to me.
What are your experiences regarding the use of a screen?

To be honnest, I don't see me doing hours of highway riding at high speeds ( above 75 Mph ) on the triple, but I guess this is not the bike for that, is it.

I have had several screens of various heights on my BMW F800 and found that its not the higher screens that give the most comfort / protection, it's the one that suits YOUR height. Sound like without the screen on your Street is best for you, so I'd stick with that and its a cheap fix too  :028:

I fitted the Puig screen but than means removing the fly screen, quality bit of kit and makes a huge difference reducing wind blast, rode 4k miles over the winter. Does make the bike look different I like the look of the fly screen which is part of the ST character  but prefer the protection of the Puig....doesn't look too bad in my humble opinion..

I fitted this fly screen to my 2014 ST R, and it works a treat at motorway speeds and Im 6 tall. Well worth the effort to fit and looks way cooler than the pixy hat (IMHO!)

Mine came already fitted with a Dart screen which I really rate, it suits the bike and for my 58 height seems to work.

For me it is undecided. I can't do much testing for the moment ( flu so @home). :190:
I think it is about me being 6'0" high, 190lbs and having a long neck.
It is really only about highway riding that I have to decide.
The dart does suit your bike, I don't think it is any higher as my triumph visor, which I like too

Don't know why this image loader isn't working? It's uploaded them, but nothing shows? It's pathetic.

I can see it now ( not at first).
It looks like the laminar screen is a bit wider . It looks fine on your bike. Not so sure on the early triple with the round lights like mine is.

I can see everyone's else pics, just not my own!

Anyway, screen works great for me, much better at speed on fast roads, I'm 5ft 10.

Looks like there is a new screen option for the 2013 - 2016.
