Has anyone tried adding a spoiler to the stock windscreen? I wonder how much that numbs down turbulence.

I did that very thing, made a reasonable difference. Around £20 from Amazon uk.

Thanks Molsal. I got one from amazon. Easy fit, inexpensive, stable and good protection on OEM screen; especially no buffeting around helmet.

Assuming it's a Gen-1..?? Dealer most likely.

I have just received the MRA Touring Vario screen, so I've updated my initial post in this topic with its dimensions.
Now you have size comparison between the 3 screens  :002:

Thank you, that's very helpful as I'm looking at getting an MRA Touring Vario screen.
Question is, does it make a difference in the real world, compared to the Comfort screen?

Cheers

I don't know, haven't fitted it yet. Not sure that I'm going to find out until spring, riding season is most likely finished here where I live.
I can only share my experience with standard/comfort screens and tell you that the comfort screen is much better than standard. However, it too has some issues at highway speeds (some buffeting at the top of the helmet and wind noise), so I hope that spoiler on MRA screen will make a difference. They are not so much different in size
