MRA X-Creen Tour Variable Windscreen Spoiler Blade
Still just as good as the last one I had another bike.

I bought this for my Sportster with the quick release windshield. My windshield is the 18 inch high one but still not high enough for me when I am on the freeway, the wind pushes my helmet back giving me a stiff neck and making long distance rides a real pain.
I looked at replacing the windshield with a taller one but that was hundreds of dollars and I just was not sure I would like it. I came upon this item at Revzilla and thought it might work with the adjustment features. I did not want to drill holes so I bought the clamp kit.
I installed the X-Creen and took it on a 200 mile trip, it was fantastic. I had no issues at speed, it kept the wind off my helmet, I can even ride with my shield up without getting blasted by wind and dirt/dust. Another benefit is it really cuts down on the wind noise......
I can recommend it if you are having issues with wind at speed and need a way to push it away from you but still have options for lowering the height and getting wind if you have those ultra hot days or you are just cruising at slow speed and want to enjoy the air and the freedom.

Can be adjusted to the perfect position.
A well-designed product with plenty of flexibility for vertical position and tilt using the double-hinge installation option. After a couple of adjustments, I got it in the sweet spot so that the airstream now passes just over the top of my helmet.

Works well as designed but noisy
Added to the stock Aprilia Futura windshield. As a taller rider (6'2"), the wind was pretty stiff on my shoulders and head with the Futura stock screen. I bought the clamp on screen as opposed to drilling holes in my screen. After a little trial and error getting it together (the instructions leave a some to the imagination and intuition - which if you don't have for these types of things like me can be a small challenge), the design and function are very good. I'd say very good at pushing the winder higher and out around my head. Easily moves up and down for different settings. Only bummer is it is pretty noisy.

Wind noise lowered significantly
I had an MRA windscreen combination on a previously owned DL1000 VStrom and was very pleased with it on that bike. My current R1200 GS Adventure has a significant amount of wind protection but also a fair amount of wind noise. I read some reviews from GSA owners and thought I'd give it a try. Once it arrived but prior to installation (drilling holes in my BMW windscreen) I decided to also get the clamp on conversion installation kit.
I've got it all set up and only had to stop three times on my first ride trying various adjustments before I came up with the perfect setting for me. The Tour Xcreen is very adjustable. I still see over the windscreen as I prefer when riding and hardly notice it is there except for the reduction in wind noise.
This works so well I had to lower the volume on my Scala Rider G9. I also always wear earplugs (currently the No-Noise)
My only regret is a week after buying the MRA Xcreen shows up on a 20% Memorial Day special from Revzilla. I'd have liked to get in on that.

Not quite decided if this is worthless or useful for me...
This was installed on a 2014 Super Tenere to help eliminate buffeting. Did not seem to really help at all, just obstructed my view mostly. I have since replace the OEM windshield that I installed this X-Creen onto with a Parabellum X-Large windscreen which works very well. Would I recommend it? I wish there was an option for Maybe, if you are 5'10 or shorter this might work for you. I am 6'1" and this did not help at all with the Super Tenere. I tried it in multiple positions and no dice.

Perfect addition for controlling wind
With the micro adjustments this product supplies you can easily adjust the flow of air. The directions for installation were clear and easy to follow and it looks great.

I can now use the intercom, use the phone, get GPS instructions and listen to music, which was previously impossible. The Xcreen Tour is fitted to my Vstrom 650 with standard screen and a Madstadt bracket. Setting it up for best effect will vary with rider and bike but it's easy to change the angles and heights. One unfortunate aspect was that at the most quiet position the top lip was obscuring my field of vision, so I had to lower it and up the noise level slightly. The "Good" performance rating is more a reflection of how horrendous the wind noise and buffeting was to begin with rather than of the effectiveness of the Xcreen to smooth and quieten the air flow. It's now good, whereas it was deafeningly awful before.
