MRA X-Creen Tour Variable Windscreen Spoiler Blade
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.

Terrific wind protection.
After I installed this wind screen, I was completely satisfied after the first 10 miles I rode with it. Installation was simple and cleaner looking as a bolt on version. Eliminated all head wobble. Can be folded down when hot outside and you want more air.Third best accessory after my cruise and hard panniers.

A good alternative to a new windshield
I have a 2012 vstrom 650. I'm 5'11" and had buffeting issues with the stock screen in any position. Xcreen allows many options and adjustments and you can get some breeze or be virtually fully protected. With stock screen I needed ear plugs beyond 40mph or so. Now I can ride with my shoei rf1100 up to 80 and I would say the noise without earplugs is LESS than it was with stock shield and ear plugs! Faster than that I still want earplugs. Ability to change angle is also super useful and allows control over direction of air. Quality is good, durability we shall see. Screen is right density and flexibility--stocker is so, so soft and scratch able. Shame on you suzuki. I come from airplanes and stock screen is a super cheap throw away joke. Xcreen is a good save that is only reasonably priced compared to a full new screen/bracket. The part should cost 65-80, but hey it's from Chermany, and the profit margin on moto stuff seems significant. I would buy again though. Also, don't monkey with the clip on deal, just drill the holes and do the perm install, it looks good and is very stable on the bike. They recommend a step drill. Don't do this, drill small pilot holes, drill slow on a warm wind screen, let the drill do the cutting and step up using 5 or 6 bits to get to the proper size. You may need an exacto knife to trim the back side breakout.
Install is super easy, BUT many of the parts look the same, so get everything out first on the kitchen table and pre assemble so you can figure out how it works. If you do it on the bike I think it would be more confusing. Good luck. I've solved the vstrom buffeting issue!

Best M/C accessory I've ever bought
I got the clamp on screen and use it on different bikes. Once assembled It's very easy to put on and off. This screen has made all the difference in the wind protection on the four bikes I've used it on. There are two ways to adjust so you have plenty of flexibility in getting it setup just right for the bike its on. This is a great accessory for your windshield. I didn't give it a 5 for installation because the initial assembly is a little confusing but once it is assembled it's very easy to put on the bike.

I recommend it to any Stelvio rider
After a two day ride to Death Valley it became clear to me that I needed wind protect that goes beyond the stock windscreen on my 2013 Moto Guzzi Stelvio. I came across favorable reviews of the MRA X-Creen Tour windscreen spoiler blade on Guzzi forums and decided to give it a try. It went on fairly easily after making sure it was level, and after the first ride I knew I had a winner. Far less buffeting with my Arai Profile although when the Stelvio windscreen is in it's full-up position and the X-Creen is up as well you have to look through it. I find that with the X-Creen just above the Stelvio windscreen and the Stelvio screen in the lowest position it really hits the sweet spot. Just get it.

Good quality too much turbulence
This is a high quality and a well engineered product. I followed an excellent installation video on twisted throttle, but used Zilla credit for the purchase. I mounted the bolt on to a Ztechnik windscreen. It's very adjustable pitch and elevation and deflects the airflow about 12". Unfortunately, the arm causes to much pressure, twisting and flex of the original plexiglass for my comfort level. After two days I removed the MRA deflector fearing damage to the original. I'm leaving the hinge mounts on since I now have four drilled holes in my Ztechnik. Bummer.

Great addition to my 2013 CBR500RA
I'm 63 years old and I'm not going to ride tucked, so I was looking for a solution to the wind blasting and buffeting my head because of the CBR's sport style screen. I first tried a Laminar Lip but it didn't seem to help much, so I now have the MRA X Screen installed and it works great. I'm 5"10" and I can choose to have it tucked full down on the hotter days and lower speed "around town" rides, or raised to the point where the deflection from my helmet is way better at highway speeds.. It's adjustable to a variety of placements so you should be able to find a sweet spot for your particular height. I went ahead and hard mounted mine because if it hadn't worked I would have found a taller screen and changed out the stock one anyway.
