MRA Vario Universal Screen Empty

OK, I'll preface this by explaining I do have a bit of an obsession (fetish?) with screens, :-), and have spent far too much money over the years on a multitude of same on different bikes.

Anyway as we just got nice warm weather here, I removed the latest experiment from the GRiSO, a MRA Universal Vario screen. The GRiSO has now returned to the much more pretty Dart flyscreen for the summer months, now just need that damned COVID to vanish!

So, a report on the MRA screen. I had it in place over the winter and early spring so rode a fair bit with it.

  • Like all large screens it does nothing for the looks of the bike.
  • Fitting is relatively easy and the two handlebar mounting clamps fit either side of the bikes main handlebar clamp.
  • Fitting is sturdy/secure and a bonus is if you have a Dart flyscreen you can leave its headlight mounting brackets in place and the MRA just clears them.
  • You can also leave the MRA handlebar clamps in place when you remove it, so literally a 5 min job to switch back from MRA to Dart and vice versa
  • The screen comes in 2 parts, the upper half sliding into low medium and high positions locked in place with thumbscrews
  • In the highest position it is pretty effective, little buffeting and possible to ride with helmet visor up at high speeds
  • The split screen approach definitely eliminates pressure differences and reduces buffeting
  • Buffeting and noise increases in medium and low positions, I could not detect much difference between either and used it in high position mostly.
  • I am 5'8"
  • Very effective in cold/wet weather keeping cold air and wind blast off chest and helmet and would eliminate bugs on visor in summer
  • Might be interesting if you are plannng any long trips

PS: I still have the Puig Retro screen from the RnineT (1st photo) and might be tempted to try shoehorning that on to the GRiSO at some stage as another experiment

I'm kinda liking the screen on the B'mer.

Keep us advised if you get a good fit on the GRiSO.

I agree, that might be worth a go. Try it in Photoshop first, that's what I did with the Yamaha Stryker before I bit the bullet and installed it for real. It's my favorite solution so far. Looks good in orange on Beetle's ride too.

OK, I see the fairing thread now, I'll post a pic there.

I like the look of the Stryker.
