MRA X-Creen Sport Variable Windscreen Spoiler Blade
Perfect fit and function for Ducati Multistrada 1200S
I live in a helmet-optional state, and although I generally wear a full face Shoei or Arai helmet, on a good day in safe riding conditions on open road I will go without, especially during scorching summer days. My Ducati Strada's windscreen is great but could do with an inch or so more height to keep the central Texas bugs from smacking me on the riding glasses and forehead. I got the Windscreen spoiler blade for that purpose and am thrilled with the results. I'm 5 feet 10.5 inches tall and the screen height is spot on - still looking over the windscreen instead of through it yet underneath the general deflection path of bugs and lightweight debris. It is perfect in all respects: fit, function, appearance, etc. It fits as though it is a Ducati part made for my 1200S Strada. I am very pleased. I decided to go with the clamp install instead of drilling holes, and the clamps do as they're supposed to and were easy to install. Be aware, however, that there are no extra parts; so, make sure you keep track of the little parts and don't let them drop down into the bike or "walk off" to never-never land. If they do, you're screwed and will have to obtain a replacement part. The clamping allowed me to fine tune exactly where the screen needed to be since it can be removed, reinstalled, or adjusted easily. The blade should sit behind the top of the windscreen, by the way. Also, use lock-tite to insure the tiny clamping screws stay tight along with possible adjustment after rides just in case. The only unknown is long-term durability, and for that I'll have to have it a while. I intend to keep it permanently affixed to the bike regardless of whether or not I use my helmet. Overall and as usual, I am VERY pleased with it and Revzilla's wide selection of products (and unbeatable service).

Pretty amazing little addition
This little spoiler made the aerodynamics on my bike go from "okay" to nearly perfect. It was fairly easy to assemble all of the little, loose pieces that come in the box and installation was a cakewalk. I bolted it on instead of drilling holes in my windscreen. It stayed put with no issues. I sold the bike I had it on, removed it and gave it to a friend. He loves it as much as I did. Pair it with a Madstad bracket for ultimate aero awesomeness.

Works great for KLR
I am 6 feet tall and the wind was catching me right in the face/visor of my helmet when riding my 2009 klr650. If I placed my left hand in front of me and just above the windshield the wind would pass over my head so I decided to try this spoiler. It was not simple to adjust and install but has been trouble free for over a thousand miles now. Much of that off road, bouncing and jumping small stuff. It deflects the wind blast over my head and has made my klr more fun to ride. Now I hear my engine instead of wind noise. Also stay warmer on cold mountain mornings due to a better pocket out of the wind. I think this klr already had an aftermarket taller windshield (not sure, I got it used) but it was to short for me.

MRA C-creen Spoiler eliminated my helmet buffering
I tried the spoiler because the taller aftermarket windshield on my motorcycle was giving me a lot of buffering at higher speed. I had two mounting choices, and I went with clamping it on, just to try it for awhile. After some test riding, and bringing the allen wrenches with me for fine tuning. My bike still looks good, and very comfortable ride at any speed. No buffering and does not bother my visibility either. I think its a very sturdy , well made product. Without the buffering, its a much quieter ride too. Not to sure if I want to drill into my windshield for direct mounting. The clamps seem to be sturdy and working really well.

Although quite pricey this little spoiler performs perfectly. I had been very frustrated. The original windscreen for this BMW F650GS caused excessive wind to my head so I purchased a larger windscreen. The new windscreen caused extreme buffeting to my helmet so I researched a blog and some had great success with another windscreen that was taller and but this one was worse. Finally I purchased this X-Creen and it was perfect. What a pleasure to ride with absolutely no buffeting. It is almost like I am in a vacuum with absolutely no noise to my helmet. I would make this purchase again!

Good but not great
I purchase this item for a 20" Puig Screen on my Honda CTX700DE. I did the bolt on installation but did not follow the stick on template height instructions because it would have only giving me 1" coverage over my existing screen. Instead, I placed the template 1/4 of an inch from the top hole & drilled away. The results were right on the money & I got a full 2" out of the fin.
Many different height adjustments. It is well made where it stays firm once it's locked. It comes with bolt-on or clamp-on hardware.
The fin is curved giving you a distorted view of what's in front of you if you're looking through it. The rain sticks to it like glue so if you're looking through an already wet helmet shield, you have double the obstruction. Now add low light or night time & you're almost blind to what's ahead.

Does what it's supposed to do, don't expect miracles
I put this on a CB500X and it does as much as I could expect it to do.
This screen got rid of buffeting from the stock screen that felt like someone was beating me around the helmet with a stick. Wind flow now is present but not violent. That said I put on some Powermmadd handguards just prior and that actually helped as well with buffeting so, strictly speaking, I haven't testing with ONLY this screen.
I'm 5'9" with a 31" inseam. On the 500X there doesn't seem to be much difference using this between having the stock screen on the high or low setting.
If I wanted 100% still air (I don't but some people do) I have to scrunch down at least 4 inches to simulate being 5'5" or so to achieve that.

MRA X-Creen Sport Add-on Windscreen did what I needed it to do.
I purchased my MRA X-creen Sport Add-on Windscreen Spoiler Blade to be mounted on my 2012 Yamaha Majesty scooter. The stock windscreen did a good job but I felt the addition of a small, additional windscreen (on top of my stock windscreen) would cut down on some of the wind noise I was experiencing. I did not want to go the route of purchasing a larger aftermarket windscreen, to replace the stock windscreen, and this looked like a good alternative to doing that. Surprise. Surprise. It actually did what I was hoping for!! Wind noise is reduced and I am able to adjust it so I look over it and not through it. Build quality is very good. Pricing (as everyone has stated) is high for what it is but that being said it does work and it is cheaper then buying a new windscreen. Instructions!? Better to not look at them and follow the photos on the box. Instructions were basically useless. Overall, a nicely made product that does exactly what I needed it to do.
