We all know how the stock bmw gsa windscreen doesn't cut the wind especially on the highway. Lots of buffeting and noise. I decided to try the MRA X-creek since I didn't want to go through the hassle of a complete windscreen changout.

I ordered the bolt on MRA, so there was a little assembly of the adjustable arms that hold the screen, but it was fairly easy to assemble. I followed the drilling template for the hole layout and made sure it would be in the right spot before I drilled. With that being said, I do wish I would have kept the screen about an inch lower. Fully extended, the bottom of the MRA sits a little above the top of my stock windscreen. Not a big deal. I'm fairly tall 6'2 so it's still about 2 inches below my eyeline in the extended position.

Taking it out for a test run and in its fully extended position in must say that I really noticed how calm the wind was on and around my helmet. The buffeting was reduced about 80% and the wind noise is down considerably as well. I like the adjustability as I do ride off road a lot and when I do this screen will drop down to allow me to see the road better. And when I get back on the superslab, up it goes for a nice comfortable blast home. I heard the rumors of it dropping down on some people at speeds over 100 mph. I had it up to 80 and it was very stable. It would take some serious speed and gale force winds to collapse this thing. I'm keeping it! (Posted on 1/21/16)

Out of the box, setup looks very complicated. It's not too bad once you get started. It's a bit expensive for what you get. Works to reduce the buffet which was hitting me in the forehead off my MRA windshield on my 2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer. It lost one star in my opinion for the high price and one more because the transparency is not 100% optically correct. I have the clear one and it's harder to read signs through it, especially at night. If you could normally read a sign at 200 yards, you can now read it at about 125 yards of looking through the screen, which bugs me a lot. I'm thinking I'll keep it folded away at night and deal with the wind because I hate trying to look through it with reduced (albeit very slightly) visibility, especially because the edges are right where I want to look most to see and avoid deer, which is impossible with the wind screen extended. Also, I hit some thick fog unexpectedly and this wind screen extension became severely, severely fogged up, I could not see anything through it whatsoever, which was extremely disconcerting.

Works as advertised. Reduces wind noise and turbulence by at least 80 percent. I'm 6'4 and the stock windscreen on my 2015 BMW f800gs was a bit short. Probably my best investment in aftermarket parts so far.
Arrived in perfect order in a timely fashion. I appreciate the online order tracking. I recommend Twisted Throttle to all my club members. (Posted on 1/14/16)

It is a well made product, but a lot of windshields will not tolerate a drilled mount without the windshield cracking. And that is exactly happened to my windshield. The pressure of the mounting brackets caused multiple cracks. The solution is to order this item with the clamp-type mounts. I would not recommend this product with the drilled mounts.

Can position anywhere from full down to full up and can direct the air flow onto or over you. Very pleased with its quality and performance. (Posted on 12/7/15)

Totally transformed my ADV bike into a quiet, pleasant ride. I have a great bike, a Moto Guzzi Stelvio. It has a stock large screen. But it's pretty loud in all positions, a common complaint about many ADV bikes. Taller windscreens looked ugly, and I'd read that spoiler screens like these were more effective. A friend with a Stelvio got the touring screen, but noted it's a little awkwardly big for the Stelvio (however, he also noted that he now has a pocket of silence and can listen to his music on earbuds while he rides). Guzzi has a wind tunnel at the factory, and perhaps as a result the screens they put out (e.g., like on the Norge too) are thinner at the top. That leaves less room for a spoiler to clamp to. For that reason, I'm glad I went with the sport screen. It should be noted that the tour screen works too, it just looks big. I'm 5'11" with a long torso, and the sport screen works great. I experimented with many different positions, but ended up putting it slightly more vertical than the stock screen and almost straight up for extra height. That's what works for me, but the great thing about these spoilers is they are extremely adjustable. The instructions were translated from German and not easy to understand, which is why Twisted Throttle's videos were so helpful. The screen and mounts are high quality and durable. I highly recommend this product. It transformed my bike into a quieter, nicer place to be. (Posted on 11/6/15)

I also use Convertibars so I am placed a bit higher that the average rider. I still have some buffeting but understand that is because of the Convertibars. I previously was using the Sport Spoiler (rather than the Touring Spoiler) and found it somewhat helpful. As a note, in the full tucked in position, the Touring Spoiler shoots a nice "clean" blast of air which has no buffeting and is great on warmer days. (Posted on 10/26/15)

I bought a MRA X-creen Touring for my BMW K100LT to see whether it could reduce the turbulence that buffeted my helmet at speed. I tried it in many different positions, at different angles of attack, and at different distances away from the screen itself. Despite lots of frustration, I could not achieve the result I wanted.

A couple of years later I purchased a BMW K1200RS and after fitting handlebar risers I discovered that I needed more protection. I removed the MRA from the other bike and fixed it to the 1200RS, but really did not hope for much after the disappointment with it on the LT. This meant that the first ride with it on the 1200RS really knocked me sideways; it was a revelation with much improved wind protection and buffeting reduced by a huge extent.

From my experience I conclude that the results depend very much on the aerodynamics of an individual bike. You may be unlucky as I was with my LT, or you may be fortunate to find that it does exactly what you need it to do.

However, it is a well-made piece of kit and it looks as though it will last a long time. It ought to be decently engineered when one considers the price. (Posted on 9/20/15)

This is my second spoiler. Both worked well, but this one has simplified and more effective locking devices. The wind is forced into a slot which accelerates it and changes its path, so that it goes up over my helmet instead of hitting me at nose level. I don't mind some wind pressure as long as it is steady and not turbulent, and that is what the spoiler does. Takes a bit of fiddling to get it adjusted optimum. When I first saw it, I did not think it would work on my little BMW R1100 gs windscreen but it did. (Posted on 9/4/15)
