Standard screen vibration
« on: May 01, 2017, 08:14:37 PM »
Hi - I like the look of the std screen so haven't changed it. My question is - do the MRA and others vibrate at speeds over 95 mph? My std one does.

I have recently changed to the MRA Vario screen and I have not noticed any vibration ... but then I didn't notice any vibration on the standard screen either!

BTW, the MRA screen definitely reduces buffeting. I am used to sports bikes with standard or double bubble screens and am ok with my head being up in the air flow but the buffeting from the more upright screen on the XR got on my wick when touring.

I got buffeted about by the standard screen in its highest position, i then tried it in the low setting, much better. Ive never experienced the screen move a mm whilst riding though.

I think think all move to some extent. The windshield assemblies are designed to break off in the event of an accident so you go through it rather than being more or less impaled on it. That's why it's not rock solid. It's pretty common on bike these days.

The MRA screen moves more than the standard one simply because it is heavier.  Don't worry about it, it is fine and works much better than the standard - in either position.

I expected some minor vibration because it's adjustable but it's more obtrusive than on any of my previous bikes, which includes gixxers, blades etc. It gets really bad north of 110 mph (on a private road of course).

We must also remember that "Gixxers & Blades" don't have moveable/adjustable screens either. Our XR screen is quite versatile and flexible compared to them, the screen mounts are not solid, nor should they be as it's designed to break off in the event of an accident...better you go through it... than it go through you!!

Yes I appreciate that sports bikes don't have moveable screens. I was just indicating that I've had experience of riding all types of bikes. Cheers

The test ride XR I got some months ago had its screen vibrating on the higher position so when I was at speeds like 100+ Km/h that vibration translated into buffeting into my helmet including the respective noise.

When I got mine that was not happening. :084:

Therefore I assume it has to do with the stiffness on the adjustment of the windshield and its supports.
Now it does shake because of road pot holes etc. even with the MRA mounted but as said not in a rhythmical manner as the test ride one did.

So I would check all the bolts and mounts on yours first. Make sure they are all well fastened. Or ask your dealer to adjust them.
