I have the Kawasaki branded MRA Vario screen and it helped a lot. I was getting a lot of buffeting around the helmet with the stock screen which the Vario screen removed. I have mine on the highest setting and the vario blade as high as it will go.

without a doubt the MRA Vario screen is nice..though I went with Puig screen...if you're looking for a lot of reading..try using the Search..there's lots of postings on windscreens and people's opinions of them...it can come down to your individual height as to which you'll prefer...Twisted Throttle are good guys..though I use SoloMoto for a lot of my online buys...
happy trails

I went with the Givi shield myself.

As far as Twisted Throttle goes, I have been buying from them for years never had a problem with their service at all. I had one problem with my SW Motech rack adapter plate, a rubber bumper was missing, I called and there were a couple in the mail that day. They're not the cheapest guys on the block but I yet to find anyone who matched they're service and that's worth a few buck more to me.

Or was that look THEN leap?

It has worked VERY WELL for me after trying a couple different ones. I too don't like anything big.


This is the latest look after 4K+ miles
