My MRA Vario screen arrived as promised today and was duly fitted.
Main points:
Fantastic quality, better than the very scratch prone OEM, and thicker.
Fittings are good, black in colour, but you could easily use the OEM ones if you prefer.
I can clean all of the inside of the screen when in the high position, a real bonus for my OCD
After some adjustment ,I can ride at 60mph with my visor up , just a gentle airflow to my face, that's screen up.
Noise in my helmet has reduced in equal measure , I have a Scorpion EXO 1400 carbon, it's not the quietest I've ever had but certainly the lightest by some margin.
If you go down this route you will need a 2.5mm hex key if you wish to use the supplied fixings!

Hope thats been of some help to those thinking of a replacement screen on a 2020 S1000 XR
I tried in vain to upload some photos sorry but it's not the normal forum upload method.

Thanks for the impressions. I'm still waiting for mine to arrive. I went for the smoked/grey one.
Have you tried adjusting the spoiler ? And is the wind still hitting your helmet, or it's going completely over ?

I've tried prety much all the positions,it was blowing a hoolie yesterday, so not the kindest test, in the position shown I had very little wind, just a breeze.I rode visor up.I'm six foot but have quite short legs and a long torso, so prbably akin to a well proportioned 6ft 2" rider.

I'll try to take this post, without opening a new one unnecessarily.

Your impressions have been very useful for me.

I would kindly ask you if you have noticed any particular vibrations of the upper part of the windscreen while driving (perhaps at high speeds or on bumps).

Thanks in advance.  :158:

No issues at all, the fastest I've been with it fitted and in the high position is 129mph, it behaved perfectly. All on a private road of course.

Ok good, thanks for quick reply.
Thing is, I am using the OEM "sport" windshield that has zero wind protection, so I was planning to replace it.

I already tried the VStream Z2393, but it generates high turbolences on my helmet at speeds near 60mph, very difficult to drive with. I'm tall like you.

Think I am going to give MRA a try, since also many other people have had benefits with it.

I can comfortably ride visor up at motorway speeds when warm enough! nothing more than a brisk breeze hitting my face , very comfy.
