I fitted one of these, fantastic value and a great price. Had the bike going very fast, no bother with it. Apologies if the link is not live. Using my phone and sausage fingers to write this. Fitted to a Honda touring screen. I'm 6'6" and no head bobbing. Just wind on shoulders so OK.

I had ordered a similar clip on for my last bike from ebay. I found the optical clarity to be terrible.  But, not that big of a deal as I look over the screen 95% of the time.  It did work just fine.  I am not suggesting that the device represented inthe link above would have the same issues.   Just a point of interest.

Yes, agreed. Not a problem for me as I'm such a tall f****r , so I look over the top all the time. And the MRA spoiler is better looking.
It's good to have such a choice, but it's not always easy to pick the correct/best one needed.
This forum and all the wise old dogs on it, help immensely .
My name is Rob.

MRA X-Creen sport on the mounted on the OEM windshield, it works great for winter and summer depending on adjustment.

I have the Palmer Products adjustable mount and then an MRA screen on that.
For me (5ft 7 … or maybe 8) it is the best combo I have used, and I have tried a few … plus I can mount my sat nav perfectly.

I use an MRA Xscreen and for me have found it better than the standard, touring,puig and the Givi airflow (Yes ive bought and tried them all  :006:). The Xscreen has an adjustable spoiler built in and it works very well. MRA do sell a universal spoiler to add to any screen but thats about £70, there are however many on ebay around the 30 quid mark whick look very similar.

+1 for the MRA X-Creen Sport (not X-Screen...X-Creen.  There is no S in the name, Hartley.)

A nice add-on that has served me well for over two years now.

Just got back from a run around north wales (Twisties and dual carriageway) for the first time after fitting the MRA X-creen sport and the difference is amazing. Straight away no buffeting, reduced noise, wife can hear me now. (I still claim I can't hear her however) 😆 Currently using the 'clamp on' fittings onto the honda standard touring screen. Worth a try! 👍

Glad to hear it is also working well for you!   :046:  The adjustable Honda OEM screen is the perfect height for this add-on for most riders.

I fitted a used high puig smoke screen, and used the flip-up screen from my old mra vario and fitted that on top of my puig screen.
And i can barely look over it, i have to find the right setting for the flip up but it is a whole lot better than before.
For reference:
I am 6,7feet tall with a long back.
