Here is the installation instructions for the Puig. I only needed a 1/4" spacer, not included, for each side for fitment.

My concern of these headlight fairings come from my youth, when faired bikes were the minority, and aftermarket options were the headlight / handlebar fairing. These tended to have instability problems, in particular at higher speeds.  The extra loading on the forks area badly affected the steering.  The solution, in those days was frame mounted fairings.  I accept that likes and dislikes can be very much a personal choice.  
My question for those that have fitted fairings, how do they perform eg. above 100mph (disclaimers permitted  Cool ), and in adverse weather conditions?

I have tried several different fairings.

1. Guzzi GRiSO ‘big’ screen
2. Dart Piranha
3. Dart Marlin
4. Stryker (current)

All stable up to $1.60+

Mark,  after reading through this tomb of a thread, it was particularly you I had in mind.  Great work with the cardboard cut-outs 👍

In amongst the thread I saw the link for the retro fairings, and somebody’s warning that they won’t fit.
I particularly like the below:

This is reminiscent of the Le Mans fairing on my Laverda 750, and can’t help myself but I’ll have to run the rule over my GRiSO to see if it’s possible by frame mounting the fairing, and moving the headlight forward a little??  🤔
My initial thought is that it caters for an 8” headlight… could be an excuse to play with LED’S  😂

I was at a buck 30 today, stable. I will say the best high speed screen I have used was the MRA speed screen. Kind of fuggly, but it earned its name.

One of the main reasons I like the 'Big' factory screen is that while it does offer some wind protection it also actively discourages me from cruising at elevated velocities for long.

Apart from the fact I'm very aware of my age, slowing reactions and increasingly poor judgement there is the fact that if I were to get pinged doing the old 'Ton' the fine would be eye-watering, they'd take my licence off me for years and might even crush my bike and throw me in the chokey, (Although the latter two are unlikely.). None of that sounds like much fun..........

snot fun AND the places where one might do that are decreasing at an alarming rate. Couple that with LIDAR and a blokes a gonner.

Better to cruise just a smidgen of 8 km/h of the exchange rate "should" have you reasonably safe. But, then again, sometimes throttle control is driven by the heart, instead of the head (aka temporary insanity).

For me it’s not an age thing, but as I travel around the UK I am increasingly hyper-aware of potential enforcement activities possibly to the detriment of rider safety.
It’s also the same here, ‘ton-up’ is such a huge tipping point for the courts when the miscreant’s fate is decided. Gulp!

LIDAR… to me means Ground Penetrating Radar?  Can’t think of anything relating to Speed Enforcement.

Over here playtime increasingly means lesser spec roads which aren’t subject to Policing, and in turn means lower top speeds.  It’s a speed thing, they’ll never understand  Crying or Very sad

Bob, over here RADAR has largely been replaced by LIDAR as the speed enforcement tool of choice for our boys in blue.

RADAR does have some issues - some years ago I had a KR11 (for work purposes of course) and clocked a gum tree doing 80 km/h - looked planted to me but what the heck would I know. Radar tends to pick up the faster speed and if you are in the front of the line you cop it. LIDAR is a little more fancy and will tell you which vehicle (in fact all of the vehicles in frame) is the culprit. Only thing in our favour is LIDAR takes about 3 seconds to get its act together - maybe that's the time judicious use of your front brakes can count - well they are there for emergencies mainly, I like engine braking.

Yup, laser speed checks are tough to argue against. Vehicles are specifically targeted from the jump. If you're speeding and your on-board detector pings a laser signal, just pull over and wait... It's more of a citation identifier than a heads up to slow down.

Mine came with "Isotta".   Is that the OEM supplier?  
The LED is positioned a little aft of the leading edge of the shield- so the edges illuminate in a way that appeals to my 80s sensibilities.
Works as you'd expect from the size/shape- no protection for hands, can feel wind on shoulders and upper part of helmet, protects chest.  At normal, subsonic speeds..  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Not sporty, but it 'blends' pretty well for everyday commuting.  After perusing threads here I bought one of the EMGOs, but not sure I have the motivation to swap.

Bob, the quarter fairing you show would probably require moving the head light and using clip on or different lowered bars. I like the old school fairing look too.
