MRA X-Creen Sport Variable Windscreen Spoiler Blade
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.

Excellent product with great build quality
Purchased the adjustable screen to fix a noise issue on a Puig brand touring windshield for a 2013 Honda CB500X. The Puig took a lot of wind blast off, but left too much noise.
The X-creen sport fit, just barely, using the clamp on system. I was able to adjust it until I took off about 80% of the noise. The still air pocket is pretty small, but good enough to do the job without a lot of bulk.
I have used these MRA screens on various bikes, and have never had a failure or a defective part. They work way better than their size would suggest.
Pricey, yes. But very well built.

I put this on my 2015 F800 GS.It does a good job of getting the air up and over my helmet. I was looking at replacement windscreens, but this was a much better value. I can also drop it down and get more air when I am off the highway. That's important here in Arizona. I am 5' 10" with a 30 " inseam for reference. Just remember it doesn't take all the air off you, but I have an adventure bike not a highway cruiser.

works as good as it looks
When it arrived it was packaged well. Once spread out on the table and seeing how it goes together,it didn't take long to install. I chose the clamp on style so that I could move it from bike to bike if needed. Several stop and resets in a few miles did the trick. It puts the air stream over my helmet and soften all the noises. I have not had to adjust it since the the first set up,which includes 300 highway miles.

Worth the cash.
I ride long distances on my BMW F800GS, and removing small irritations reduces stress and makes a big difference to the enjoyability of the ride. It's easier to concentrate and be safe.
This little screens removes a bit of helmet noise and stress on the neck from buffeting. It makes for an easier ride, and I'm all for that.
Assembly is not as difficult as the other reviews make out. It took me about 15 minutes.

worth the price
I needed a spoiler to get the wind blast over my head.
This mini spoiler does the trick.
It's not cheap, but it exudes quality. Notice that the spoiler blade itself is not cut from a sheet of plexi and then formed (as say a National Cycle deflector obviously is), no the spoiler blade is a molded piece of plastic with a pronounced raised edge going all around it. Makes a difference in the appearance department.
Overall it looks minimal and clean.
My only gripe is with the instructions.
I managed to assemble the screen 'upside down' so that the longer side of the blade is at the top and not the bottom. Think is, once you snap the locking levers into place, they are not easily coming apart (probably a good thing as you don't what this thing disintegrating in flight).. I installed the windshield clamps backwards so the blade is upside down. It's not really noticable, but I wish I'd been more careful.
