There are two positions on the mounting brackets for the screen on the 1300. If you change yours to the other setting to were it is currently at and then adjust it electrically to where you look over the top the angle will be different from the angle on the original setting. This may change the wind noise, maybe better maybe worse.

I adjusted the screen on my 1300 to the upper mount and found it better for me. Even set to just below eye level the bulk of the air now flows over the top of my helmet. Depending on road surface there is more noise from the front wheel and I cannot feel air coming in from under the screen unless I move my hand near the screen.

Maybe the Migsel, GPS and phone mounts assist in keeping any excess air away from the rider.

I'm one of those weird people who don't mind looking through the screen on highways and major roads. I love riding with an open visor, and with the screen up. It is a beautifully quite ride.  ;-*  However, when I hit the twisties, I will put the screen right down.  :grin

You’re not the only one Skip.  I nearly always have my tinted internal visor down and the clear visor up. I generally find that works fine even on the highway with the CalSci screen sitting just below eye level. However if the wind is bad or it’s raining I find I would rather crank the screen up and look through it rather than drop the visor, because that way I still get a breeze on my whiskers.
A man rides on his STeed, says “Why am I short of attention? Got a short little span of attention”.

You can call me Steve, with apologies to Paul Simon.
