Vario screen with adjustable small fin
on: December 06, 2019, 03:42:59 PM
Hi all,

I'm not sure what the forum concensus is for screen upgrades but at 6' 1" I'm finding the stock screen and motorway speeds don't quite gel. i did get some luck yesterday when I finally got the bolts from the dealer to raise my seat - now all the buffeting hits my chest not helmet so 80 (Preferred cruising speed) is possible.

Ideally though I'd like to deflect though and the MRA touring screen with adjustable bit looks like a nice candidate. What do other forum member think?

I used a Powerbronze adjustable screen kit on my last Cr. Significantly raised the standard screen and might be cheaper than buying a new screen.

PB adjustable screen kit here too, with a Puig touring screen. It's not perfect, but not bad. Also tried it with MRA vario, now sitting idle somewhere.

I bought one of these and along with an Ermax screen find it works great http://s410372035.initial-website.co.uk/products/select-bike-a-j/honda-vfr800x-2015my/
Spent some time trying different tilt/height settings and found at 6'2" the top setting of both is spot on for me, quiet & comfy plus visor up at motorway speeds if req'd  :028:

Powerbronze adjusters + Ermax screen do it for me, adjusters set to mid height and mid angle.  :152:

Have to agree there, only original screens/fittings are made with looks in mind, don't do SFA but look right 🤷‍♂️

My powerbronze adjuster looks like shit now, thanks to excessive corrosion.  :023:
