Wind turbulence

Hi, when at speed, 120 plus, am getting some serious wind blast, 130 and above its shaking my helmet so much that vision is tricky - not good.

I have a zero gravity double bubble, but don't reckon its coming from the screen. Seems like airflow from the front fairing (sides of the screen) is being directed right onto my shoulders and the leather is flapping like mad, i can see it doing it in the mirrors. Even tucking right down don't really solve it

Anyone else get this problem? Any solutions other than another trying another jacket?

Im 6f 4in and I get pretty much zero turbulence when fully tucked! I have the DP oversized screen fitted which makes all the difference. Also it depends on what lid ur using in terms of getting battered by the wind when semi tucked/sat upright. The new AGV Pista/Corsa is so far ahead of other manufactures when it comes to aerodynamics (but its so bloody noisy)!

I had the same problem. First I added a Zero Gravity Corsa windscreen. That helped a lot. But what solved the problem was that my jacket was too big. I bought a skin tight one and now I'm good.

I have no problem at all but some people I know use the Areo kit that comes with the S and R. I have actually rode a friends bike with the Areo kit installed and it worked pretty good. I hate the double bubble it causes the air to hit my shoulders. I have the Zero Gravity Corsa and it works great.

Am pretty sure it's the jacket, good to hear your experience. The double bub has helped but the jacket is puckering at the shoulders with the wind. Trouble is it fits neatly round the belly! I couldn't go smaller!

I was having the same problem after 140MPH so i went with bigger Cheek Pads in my Shoei and it solved the problem
