MRA screen.
« on: February 28, 2017, 12:31:08 PM »
I fitted an MRA screen yesterday and took the bike for a 160 miles round trip. No decernable wind buffeting and very happy with the level of protection it is offering.

I am 6' 1", a "delicate" 19 stone and build like a rugby prop - so I usually need a degree of augmented aerodynamics to allow me to cut through the air  :001:

That's good to know. I just bought one of those screens but the weather here has been so bad I haven't had time to try it yet. Thanks.

I am 181 cm high, do you think mra vario will make the air stream to go over my helmet in highest position? If not maybe I should go for something taller (kappa screen for example) ?

I think the MRA with the lip would be fine for you.

I have had one for a couple of months.  Really good...with my Shoei helmet.

A bit more noisy and more buffeting with my new Arai.  Will fiddle with the wing position.

But, all in all, a great improvement over stock.

Any idea about passenger comfort ? I ride two up almost all the time.

BTW I saw some other and bigger windscreens but they just look too ugly for my taste. Givi for example.

Definitely will try MRA before anything else.

Sorry, i never carry a passenger.

But, it certainly works well, and, yes it doesn't look like a barn door.... :002:

Is the MRA screen much bigger than BMW standard screen?
