MRA Spoiler and Home Depot Windscreen

So I made a tall windscreen from a $22 sheet of lexan from Home Depot and cut it so I’m just looking over it then I installed the MRA adjustable spoiler that came with the bike. I feel like I’m on a Goldwing now. This is the quietest bike air wise I’ve ever ridden now. I can hear everything the motor is doing and regularly ride without earplugs, something I’ve never done before.
When the spoiler is down I get acceptable air to cool me around town, flip it up for the freeway and it makes an amazing difference. With it up I can look right through it no problem and it’s the best rain protection I’ve had, this bike has seen a lot of heavy rain here, subtropical downpours, the heaviest rain I’ve ever ridden in. The MRA spoiler saved me, peering through that little strip of polycarbonate or whatever it is.
Nice clean air, best cockpit for a long ride by far I’ve experienced.
I highly recommend the MRA spoiler, I don’t think you can get this version but they have updated ones and I’m personally sold on it.
I found it for sale here but only two left:

i did similar with a 25" CalSci I had for my 800ST BMW. I moved the windshield to my G650GS BMW and reshaped it to fit the headlights. The I added a Laminar lip so the air moves over me well enough.
Good job on the Lexan mount. A lot less expensive that the used Cal Sci.

I just bought this on Amazon, it shipped out of China and is a straight up copy of the MRA, to me it seems very nice and high quality. So far LOVING the reduction/elimination of buffet and wind noise. $35 shipped, look up Motoparty windscreen spoiler.
