Xcreen.

I fitted an xcreen adjustable windscreen to my oem 2015 LT windscreen. With the screen on the lowest setting and the xcreen angled almost flat, I am able to ride with my helmet shield open with almost no buffeting. With my oem screen Al the way up and the xcreen in the same upright position, I make a very nice pocket at 65-70mph. I have to look through the xcreen though at that height and I got a little disoriented and felt queasy after some time. Still worth the $120 for the clamp on. It barely fits. You have to finagle it a bit because the oem screen is 9.5 inches. The xcreen is 10.

How about a pic? I didn't think anything could be put on the tiny stock shield, but it may be pretty nice. Good job.

it's tough taking pictures of clear things.

That looks great! That with the new windshield is a cost saver for an effective screen system.

It works well. It's very adjustable so I would see it work for lots of people at varying heights. It's also super easy to move to any of my other bikes in a minute or two. It even fits on my smax scooter.

Something to note. I discovered this yesterday. If you are riding around on tight back roads where the speeds are less than 50ish mph, the xscreen wobbles a lot. The oem screen is obviously not designed to support weight. The xcreen's clamps are made of metal. So it has substantial weight. I didn't care for that. Once on the highway, the wind preloads the screen a bit and it's not as noticeable.

On a sportbike screen that has zero flex...it's awesome. On my ninja, it made a nice clean air pocket with no buffeting.

I recently added an X-Screen to my MRA sport shield. Nothing but good things to say about it. NOTE: it's a hell of a lot cheaper to buy the MRA shield already equipped with the X-Screen than it is to retrofit it!

I wasn't aware that xcreen made a shield until after I bought the deflector. I have a friend who had one on his Bandit 1250. I borrowed it to see if I liked it. After I returned it, I googled and ordered. I don't think they have a screen for the 2015 LT yet.

I BELIEVE that the pics at the start (the 'clear' ones...) are of a 2015.
