  1. Africa Twin
    I seek advice from people with experience with the MRA varioscreen V (new full screen) and the MRA vario touring (clip on top of old screen) part. I suffer from high windnoise on higher speeds. Been looking for reviews and comparisons, but not alot to find. I'm 6 foot 2 inches high. I like the...

    Hi, Please would somebody tell me if the four silver fixings you can see that hold the wind shield to the headlamp cowl are the correct ones for a 1999 XL600V? Please see pictures. They came with the bike when I bought it new but seem too big and shiny? Thanks PC

    Hi All, so I just fitted a Givi top deflector, all good so far. Went for a spin and certainly it works very well, but I found I was getting wind in the chin/neck area, particularly on right hand side mainly Out with throttle hand , and it seems to be coming in from the hand guard / brake fluid...

    Hi all, Still struggling with the screen on my new AT; Stock screen looks great but I get bad buffering above 50mph, my lower Powerbronze screen has no buffering, but no wind protection either :( I am thinking of getting the Batzen Screen adjuster, anyone got one and is it any good? I am 5ft...

    Hola - my name is inigo mon...no...wait...wrong forum.... Has anyone put a RD03 screen on their RD04? Or a lower screen from another donor? It's getting pretty toasty over here and the large/touring screen that's on my RD04 is blocking a lot of wind (something that's a godsend in winter or on...

  8. CRF - New Forum!
    Hi, new to the Forum. I have always ridden large touring bikes but have recently added a CRF250L for small backroads riding. I don't want to ride off road, just the small tarmac tracks that wind over moors and Dales. The CRF has the stock knobbly tyres and I don't feel secure cornering on tarmac...

    Just thought I'd pop a note to say hi. Picked up an '08 Transalp 700 last month after spending my first 2 years of riding on a GSX650F. Bought with 8k on the clock and in almost perfect nic, loving it so far but yet to take her on a long trip. I've ordered a second hand MRA X-Creen clip on...

    Hello again Thanks for the help on the previous post. I am looking to fit some hand guards & a taller screen on my 650v. Is their any recomendations, or any to avoid. The hand guards are more to keep the wind off, not smash into trees. Or do I just buy a new AT? thanks trevor

    After some handlebar/lever protectors to fit an RD07. Preferably just some strong Aluminium bar type that would allow me to keep the OEM wind guards. Bark busters or other similar brand considered. Matt.
  12. Dominator / FMX
    My Dommie lives on the street so it hides under an Oxford Stormex cover when not in use. At least three times in the last month the wind has got it and knocked the bike over. We live on a slight hill so the bike is always parked with the side stand side down hill but because it's quite a tall...
  13. Africa Twin
    Can anyone confirm or post up a pic of the correct order the mudguard, fork brace and fork covers are bolted onto the rear lower fork? Mine has been in so many pieces for so long I've forgotten. Also a pic of the front and rear bolts would be amazing as I have ordered new ones, but an...
  14. Dominator / FMX
    On the bike with the snorkel out, 15t front sprocket, baffles removed and 175 main jet I saw 103MPH on the speedo yesterday. Yes I know that indicated doesn't mean actual but it'll do for me. The engine was turning just over 6000RPM, it wouldn't rev out in 5th. I was tucked in as tight as...

    Anybody got a touring screen for the RD04 laying around? My current screen is quite low, so there's lots of wind buffeting which is a pain. Not really looking for the very high type but something mid range would be great. Cheers Ysbyty

    Now my GS has gone to a new owner, I have a clear MRA screen up for sale - it will also fit the BMW R850GS. It's in very good nick, no scratches, all fittings present, etc. It makes a huge difference from the standard screen because you can adjust it to suit your height, etc. It's a two-piece...
  17. Dominator / FMX
    Hi all. I have just joined the group having purchased my new NX650 Dominator. It's new to me not new. I think it's an RD08 (1997). Anyway it has no little windshield on the front and I can imagine being buffeted all over the show on a long run. Has anyone seen or fitted a nice little pop up...
  18. Mechanical Advice
    Ive just read a very old post about the use of magnetic sump plugs. May I offer a word of warning, Perhaps there are certain varieties that are better but in my experience they are far too weak. I know a couple of guys who managed to sheer them while installing. I did the same helping a friend...

    Hiya all . Every time I've used my ta I get a vibration in my head when I go over 45mph . Caused through the wind shield . I'm 5ft 8 inches and got the givi wind shield fitted . Is there any wind shield out there that will pass the wind over my head instead of hitting the peak on my shoie hornet...
  20. Africa Twin
    I'm wanting to change the screen on my A/T as I find there is a lot of wind buffeting etc at the moment, particularly above about 60 mph. Bike has the standard screen at the moment. The choices seem to be the power bronze flip screen for about £55, the MRA touring screen for about £75, or the...
