I have had numerous bikes and scooters in recent years. Whatever the differences, the constant issue for me with any bike is the wind turbulence. I like to ride pretty much year round so a windscreen is a necessity to make it tolerable as you slice through the frigid air. The problem I have had is that the addition of a windscreen inevitably accelerates the air going over the top of the windscreen and shoots it right at your helmet. This can be partially avoided if you just happen to get a windscreen that is just tall enough without being too tall. That's hard to do given the variability of rider height, mounting issues, seat height, and hardware available for your particular ride. The constant rumbling sound of the wind around my helmet takes away from the enjoyment of riding. I want to protect my hearing and even with earplugs the turbulence would leave my ears ringing for quite some time. I decided to give the X screen a try. I had purchased one of the MRA windscreens before and was familiar with the quality this company produces. Of course I was a bit concerned about the cost for what looks like a pretty small piece of plastic and some hardware, but what a difference it makes! The X screen allows you to direct much of the wind over your head. At the same time, having the double screen effect cuts down on the intensity of the wind that passes directly over the screen. I don't understand all of the mechanics of this, but it works fabulously. Adjustments are very easy. I have the x screen adjusted below eye level so I am still looking over it, not through it. The effect was immediately obvious even before I could tweak the adjustment. All the parts are super sturdy. This particular X Creen comes with hardware for a clamp mount or permanent mount. The permanent mount requires drilling holes. No big deal, I would drill them if I need to, but the clamp hardware works so well and is so secure, I doubt I'll need to change the mounting. This is one part that I think I will always buy no matter what bike I am riding. Very pleased with the performance and quality. As usual, Twisted Throttle service was quick. I am very pleased with this purchase. Big problem solved. (Posted on 11/23/15)

Bought this spoiler because a taller windshield for my bike was not available. Short story; It works. Buffetting is gone, and my helmet visor is no longer littered with bugs. Adjustability is excellent, as is the option to mount either clamp-on, or bolt-on. The spoiler itself is a beautiful example of plastics engineering. Very pleased with this product. Application is Honda CTX700D with "tall" Cee Bailey windshield. (Posted on 10/27/15)

I bought this for my Spyder and while I am using the low/sport windshield this MRA screen has definatly smoothed out the airflow and stopped my helmet from buffeting. I plan on purchasing another one to use on my touring windshield. Build quality is good and the instructions were acceptable. (Posted on 10/9/15)

I needed a bit more windshield height to reduce high speed buffeting on my helmet. The product reduced the wind buffeting quite a bit, and highway riding is much more comfortable now. The apparent quality and flexibility of positioning and installation are significant bonuses. Expensive, but worth it, given the alternatives. (Posted on 9/19/15)

After about 150 miles of testing on my BMW F800 ST at speeds from 40 to 80, I'm very happy with my new spoiler.

The clamp-on version appears to be solid -- even when the whole rig (stock screen and MRA) was flapping around a bit in truck wake on the slab, the MRA never loosened up or moved out of position. This was a big relief because the tiny allen set screws which hold the clamps on the windshield seem like they never get fully tight -- my guess is you need to be careful not to tighten them so much that they crack the screen, so the big question was: are they tight enough even though I could definitely turn them farther? The answer appears to be yes. Be sure to watch the TT installation videos -- it's not a hard job, but it's complicated.

With the caution that I never really had buffeting issues with the stock screen other than what I thought was unavoidable truck wake, I find that the MRA really changes the whole feel of the bike on the highway when other vehicles are nearby. It got the torture test when I got stuck behind two vehicles: a van carrying a big ladder on its roof, followed by an SUV, going about 70 in the left lane. This often produces maximum turbulence and obviously the MRA can't make that stop. But instead of getting a sort of "bobble-head" effect where my helmet gets tossed around a bit, any such wobbly buffeting seemed to be restricted to my shoulders and of course the screen and MRA themselves, which moved around a fair amount.

This promises to reduce highway fatigue a lot and I already notice that doing head checks for lane changes is much easier, with hardly any wind pressure on the side of my helmet with my head turned. As near as I can tell, the wind stream has moved a bit, with some pressure still on my shoulders (which I like, to keep my wrists happy), but less on my head. I never bothered to re-adjust for back roads; it is totally out of the way. But I definitely think the Sport model is the best for F800 bikes; the Tour model might get in the way and be too big.

The big test will be driving rain, but I'm not in a hurry to do that [g]. To me the big plus of the MRA is that it is very adjustable, so it stands a better chance than any replacement screen of matching your height, width, helmet, jacket and riding position, all of which influence wind flow and buffeting.

I have been using the Xcreen Add-on for the last several hundred miles on my Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It adds a level of air deflection that can do a multitude of things. You can use it to direct airflow to stop buffeting. You can also raise it to the highest setting to create a nice pocket of dead air so that you may ride with your visor open. Some things to note: The clamps are made out of metal. The weight of the unit does cause some flopping around at lower speeds. Once up to highway speeds, the wind load on the OEM screen stops most of that. It's easily transferable from bike to bike though. On sport bikes with more rigid mounted windscreens it works great.

I use this on my VStream Touring Windshield on my M109R. It works well, but had someone replied to my request for info before the sale, I probably would have ended up getting the wider / taller model. Still, it "fixes" the VStream and makes it useable on the highway. I think it is overpriced, but it does what I needed, and I have not found any other options. (Posted on 7/17/15)
