I agree with the original one being noisy and buffeting so much. And the up/down function almost does nothing. I tested it yesterday. Difference from low to high is only a couple of inches. So instead of hitting middle of helmet visor, it hits top of visor.
Another GT900 owner joining the search for an improved screen here......
Really looking forward to any information on the MRA screen when it arrives as I've used their screens in the past.
Here in the UK one of my local shops told me that Puig, are still developing their screen, but it should be available next month (August 18).
I couldn't see an appropriate 'Board' to post on, but could we have a GT900 sub board please Moderators? As many have said as this is a new model manufacturers haven't yet launched their aftermarket goodies yet. I know that there are quite a few GT900 owners who would love to share new/ reviews on GT900 accessories as they become available.
Please can we have a new sub section for the GT900?
The only aftermarket I have fitted is the R&G front fender extender (as the mudguard has the same profile as the previous FJ09 models).
As you can see it's just slightly wider and only a little bit taller than the original one.
The handlebar can still be turned completely to both sides without the handguard hitting the screen.
The MRA screen has another form than the original one. Where the Yamaha is flat like a board, the MRA has a curve to it.
I have only ridden about 100km with the screen but so far it's better than the one from Yamaha. I have ridden on 50/80/110/130 km per hour roads and the low setting for the screen fits fine up till 110km/h, and the tall one makes 130km/h more tolerable.
The buffering do not appear to be a problem any more. The wind still hits my upper shoulders and face (depending on low/high setting) but I find it tolerable now. Before it would be so loud I would have ringing ears after a drive. I use earplugs all the time due to tinnitus. I don't want to make it any worse.
I think that I still want to try a small racing screen, maybe from PUIG.. but for now, and for the upcoming trips, the MRA will suffice.
By the way, the varioscreen is quite useless. I haven't found a setting where I feel like it works. I drive with it in low/flat setting now and it seems to work better. Maybe it's better than riding without one but who knows.. I'm not going to take it off just to see
Many thanks for posting you initial thoughts on the MRA screen, and especially the photo showing the size difference.
Apologies if I've missed it in an earlier post but what height are you? I'm short, so would be interested to know your height (probably taller than me at 5'7") and if so if you 'scootch down' to my height does it improve the wind buffeting situation?
I too received my MRA touring screen this week. (Not Vario)
Only managed a shortish ride with it, but a definite improvement over the stock screen.
Less buffeting at higher speeds and much quieter. I’m 5ft6in and the height settings don’t seem to make a huge difference, but still getting enough air to stay cooler in the hot weather we’re enjoying in the UK.
Cosmetically it looks much nicer on my black bike in grey smoke.
PS I second the vote for a dedicated 900 GT sub section!
New GT owner in the states here as of yesterday! A new screen is on my top list of accessories. Has anyone tried the OEM touring screen? I had one on my FJR and it was leaps and bounds better than stock, I think it was made by national cycle to boot.
A GT sub section would be beneficial.
