Screen possibly fixed
« on: 31 July, 2019, 02:06:20 PM »
So I bought an MRA "VT" screen and still received Buffering.
I'm over 6' so always struggled with screens.

This new screen is a lot better than stock but as I said I still get very fine buffering which make my nose itch and after a while gives me a headache.
Having returned from a 1200 mile long weekend around Scotland I learned to ride this bike and its awesome but it was going to have to go back.

Until I bought some 1.50 1/4" tap washers.

These I've put on the lower screen mounts which increase the rake ever so slightly and BOOM buffering gone. 

I knew it didn't need much to get it right but this seems to have sorted it.

Weather turned bad so not done a long ride but on the short blatt down the by pass there is definitely a huge difference.

Still noisy though but that's probably the GT-air.

For those struggling with buffering give this a try. The bottle bolts are easily long enough to take the washer and an extremely cheap fix.

Now to enjoy the bike.

I put around 5 Rubber washers on the top mounting bolts, mainly so I could get at the lock to lock the TomTom onto the bike without having to remove the GPS every time I left the bike, these 5 washers altered the angle which improved the noise and buffeting.

Palmer brackets on an aftermarket screen worked for me to get the right angle but I'm only 5 10.  So many variables when comes to screens, it's always good when someone comes up with a fix that suits them, particularly if it's not expensive.

Hi we found the MRA vario screen add on was just great as it just sits on top of the original screen but is adjustable to suit individuals well worth a try .

I have an MRA screen on 'Clot'. It was on it when I got it so not sure what the model is but it has a little seperate adjustable airfoil like section bolted to the top.


I am 6' and used it at (ahem, cough,cough) 'motorway' speeds with no buffering or noise problems.
I never touched it, you can't blame me, it went off when I was cleaning it.

Has anyone tried modding their Helmet?
I have a Schuberth C4 pro, & lifting the visor just 20mm makes all the difference.
Can't ride all the time like that but does help.
So I'm looking for a helmet spoiler (or improver) if at all anyone makes one.   :016:

I thought the MRA screen worked. 

It didn't.

Still got buffering and itchy nose

The noise was vastly improved though.

I also discovered if I lent slightly forward buffering was better.

As not ideal I've bought  a Puig touring screen with spoiler. This is 120cm longer than standard.

It's not perfect and I've only done about 100 miles but its soooooo much better.

I can now do motorway speeds without having to constantly lift my visor and scratch my nose.

Added bonus is I can hear the exhaust note.

This might have just saved the bike.

Off to Wales for a long weekend in a couple of weeks for full test.

I thought it was just me. No sooner on the bike & my nose starts itching....I have to lift the visor & start de-coking. :003:
