the vario wing is the vta4. yes, it works great. low position is steady windblast similar to no screen, hi position is greatly reduced. screen is in #2 position, I'm 5'10", arai helmet.

I too mounted brake lines long time ago.
How do works rear shock absorber?

Nobody thinks that something is so easy like who is totally unable to do it.

I'd rather have the controls bend in a crash so I could hopefully bend them back and get home. had that happen enough times on other bikes. the chainguard I drilled just for you.

Oakland's got some really nasty chain guard loving woodpeckers. They're attracted to chain lube.

I like the idea of cutting the Givi screen.

Was your MRA screen of this type?
