    Hello from Cheshire

    After 25 years I made a return to two wheels on a Honda CBX500 in 2017. Three years later and IAM certificate under my belt I bought a 2016 800 VFR Crosrunner in August last year, I put 2,000 miles on the clock in two months which definitely shows I'm lovin' it! Thank you to Colwyn Bay Honda for supplying both my bikes.

    I'm looking forward to hearing about other peoples experiences of the Crossrunner.  I'm working on a few winter projects and one is the screen. I have put a genuine screen back on but still need a deflector if anyone has any experience. I have been looking at the MRA deflector OR maybe a repositionable bracket for the complete screen? Thank you  :028:

    Hi ladyrunner
    I ride a 2017 c,r, with a mra screen works fine for me, think in the future would get a wider screen, just keep the wind a bit wider around my ears😁. Put a extender fender on  front.hugger on  rear keep it clean.

    Thank you for the reply, I definitely would have gone for the Mra screen but unfortunately there were none available in the country a week before I left for Scotland so I had to buy a genuine Crossrunner screen. I am now looking for advice on a deflector.
    I did put the extender on the front 👍

      :400: try the Powerbronze screen brackets, they allow adjustment of the screen height and angle, sorted my screen issues out when used with a bigger screen (the bigger screen alone wasnt much better than stock).

    Thank you, that is helpful.
    I had been debating on whether to get the adjustable bracket or an mra deflector, they are both a similar price.
    I would be using the powerbronze bracket on a stock screen, just wondering if anyone has experience of that? I'll check on the forum too, thanks 👍

    For maximum adjustability you could consider a Palmer Products adjustable bracket with a givi airflow screen. The looks might not be of your taste, but regarding functionality it doesn't get any better.
