    I got the MRA Touring "T" screen on my bike, but it's not the screen for you if you want something to take the wind over you, as it is lower than the stock screen.
    I'm very happy with the screen though, as I was looking for a screen that made the wind hit me lower on the body - and in that regard the MRA screen is perfect. With the screen in lowest position the wind hit me mid chest and I have nice clean air flow around my helmet just as I was hoping for.

    Hi Tonny
    Did you ever get the MRA screen? If you did, which one did you get and does it work?
    I specifically look for a good screen that takes the wind OVER me (including Helmet) for autumn/spring rides here in cold Denmark. Used to use the WindStrom including the spoiler. It's brilliant exept it creates frontwheel lift at high speeds!! :-/

    Yes it does, but only just.
    Just to make sure that it wont be causing problems, I've shortend the hose where it connect to the engine with about 5mm, which solve the problem perfectly.
    I did it with a stanly blade without removing the hose from the engine - just loosen the tightning clamp push it out of the way (the hose is still tight enough not to leak) - cut away a ring of the hose and push it back in place and retighten the clamp.

    The whole job takes about 5 min of easy work.

    Just installed GIVI crash Bars on my 2012 VStrom. Does the radiator hose touch the bar on the right side?
