I test rode the new 2020 XR with the larger screen and thought it was great. A bike isn’t “about” any particular size screen, just get the screen that suits you best, as you would with a seat for example.

Just an update re screens. Purchased the tinted high screen from Powerbronze. Fitted this morning and out for a 70 mile run. Really like the look of the tinted screen and protection was great in both positions. Just six foot and as mentioned seems to be different for everyone.
Just out of interest. No Tom Sykes, but like the lean angle gimmick. Whats the near maximum you could go over to?? Tyres should be scrubbed in now.
So thats the Rad guards fitted, new screen fitted and new tank ring. All good and love the bike. Just need to get the first service mileage done.

MRA finally released their touring Vario screen for the new XR, so perhaps I will give it a try.
Re the lean angles, I'm still getting used to the bike, but this is how far I managed to go so far

Try Fleabay...I bought my MRA Vario from fleabay and had no issue delivering to Australia.

The UK dealer is BikeHPS.com If you use the MRA site from the UK it puts up a button to send you to bikeHPS.

Just got the confirmation from MRA that my Vario for 2020 XR is on its way.
This will be my 3rd (and hopefully the last) screen  :008: Soon you will have its comparison against the standard and comfort screens which I've compared earlier in this topic.

HPS called me this morning regarding my order for my Vario screen for my 2020 XR, I had ordered light smoke, these are not now shipping until late November, so I had the option to go for the clear option, which I did and delivery is today ,24 hrs after the call. I changed my mind on screen colour sevral times before my initial order, so no issue accepting next day delivery on the clear option.I'll let you all know how I find it after my 100 mile round trip for first service on Tuesday.
