MRA Screen

My 03 DL1000 came with a MRA screen on it and the extension piece is about three inches high. Of coarse that is about 2 inches to low for me. I just duck my head slightly and it works fine. Do they make or does some one have a higher one? If that thing was 5 or six inches instead of 3 I'd be all set.

Is it adjustable? I have an MRA attachment on my 03, and I found that putting it all the way down streamlined the airflow better for my height than having it up. I'm 6'3".

Oh there's a big one of them too huh? Makes sense. I'm not being picky but if I just lower my head that little bit it's like "yea I want that". Must be getting old.

Thats odd cuz I'm 6'2", when I adjust it it makes no difference. Just lean down a bit though and it's so nice.

I forget, aren't there a couple adjustment mounts on the OEM screen frame? I think I raise mine up to the highest point.
I'se a miniscule 5'7" and I love the MRA.

I'll have to look into that adjustment. Like I said I'm just a couple inches from the sweet spot (YEA thats what she said!) hahahaha

Probably just a difference is perspective. I have no problem riding unfaired or small fairing bikes, so for me, if there is no buffeting I am fine. I noticed with the screen all the way down the air flow is the smoothest around my helmet.
