Just got it mounted to the screen and back on the back. At least you can get an idea of the looks of it. Not too fugly IMO. Didn't notice much of a difference running back and forth between the garage and the house.    :015:   I'll give my thoughts when I get the rest of my chores done. Didn't have time to fit the plugs tonight.

:401: Hallstar, I am 6ft too, as said on first page the MRa vario didn't work for me even sat on a Palmer screen bracket.
I think it wasn't wide enough or tall enough to give decent wind protection for me anyway.
The Givi was a huge improvement for me  :028:

Do you have any pics of the Givi screen on bike?

What is the verdict on the X-Creen following a road test?

Looks good. Its a toss up between the GIVI and the X-Creen for me.

What bracket is your screen mounted to? Is it a Palmers?

Yes, I fitted the stabiliser bars too, to stop the screen flexing, works well IMO 👍

Have you tried the screen on the bike without the bracketery?

Unfortunately have not had a chance yet......I could start another thread on the lack of service from delivery companies around here.  :157: Waiting for the last bit to arrive so I can put it back together and remap it. ( my Tiger) My apologies. Had I known it was going to take this long to get parts, I would not have chimed in.

It's been a couple weeks, but if you're still interested, I finally got all my parts and was able to get out for a couple hours yesterday. Thoughts on the spoiler:   :006: meh.....I am a tad disappointed. I was hoping for better.  It is better than the Puig touring screen, and maybe I should have fitted a Puig visor on that, but the reviews were not that great. 
It does keep the wind from pushing my head about, but I still suffer a lot of wind noise.  Beginning to think part of the problem may be my helmet.( Arai vector 2).
I will keep fiddling with positions, but I'm not getting hopes up.  :110:

Thanks for the followup, Grouchybastard.

I'm going to try modifying the Madstad bracket to allow the screen to be tilted back more and may try the MRA X wing on top of that - which I've had to do with other bikes. 

TigerMikes Palmer/Givi system looks interesting with the wings at the lower edge that look to be adjustable.   Looks like those might really help to prevent air from coming up from below into the cockpit area.
