MRA Touring install FINALLY

It took a month to show up, but my next (and last if it does not work) windshield is here. It's the MRA Touring. Here are some shots of it. I'm going on a ride tomorrow to test it. I've got it in the #3 position to start. That seems like it's the one working for other 6 foot plus riders...........


The brackets installed


The screen


Installed






IF this does not work it will be up for sale ASAP

Looking forward to hearing your review of this screen, and particularly how it differs from the Zero Gravity screen that I just got from you (which seems to be working out fine, btw). I like that the MRA is wider than other aftermarket screens.

So far so good

Today's ride went well NO BUFFETING with it in #3 position. Nice clean wind on my helmet and not as much on my upper body. So far I am liking it. I moved it to the #2 position to see if a little more angle will help or hinder. But right now I think this one is a keeper.

And forthose wondering the #2 position IS A KEEPER!! Even better wind reduction than #3 was. This screen was worth the wait.

You may want to consider adding this to your new screen........IF you're looking for more adjustment and fine-tuning. Made a HUGE improvement to mine. Buffeting was still fairly bad for me without the add-on, but after adding the X-Screen I was able to adjust and get it pretty darn good. 4th or 5th windscreen set-up for me over the last 4 years, and by far the best I've came across.

Appreciate the suggestion but I am a minimalist and the screen is working just fine without the add-on. I've seen it before and was really hoping I wasn't going to have to use it. The MRA is just what I hoped it would be.
