PostSubject: MRA X-creen Spoiler Blade   Tue 08 Apr 2014, 13:44

Has anyone tried the MRA X-creen spoiler Blade on their Silver Wing and if so please list the pros and cons??? The spoiler blade is $129 verses $253 (retail) for the Givi AF214 and supposedly does the same thing.If this has been posted before, point me in the right direction.....thanks

I tried a MRA on Burgman 400--stock screen=waste of money---Givi Adjustable made the scooter rideable------SilverWing spent/wasted money on Clearview/Cee Baily/Givi both adjustable and non-adjustable-----only the adjustable WORKS

Madstad possibility. If goal is to ride down road comfortable and quite buffet free....looking over.


Problem with current crop of maxi scooters is that your nose is TOO far from tip of shield. GIVI and Madstad go around the basic design flaw----scooters....Vespa with Vespa expensive shield cut to the right height will get you buffet free ride, with look over. I try to give Vespa a shot each year when I buy new bike......but lack of dealers/Italian parts service/goofy oil requirement/super fuel/10,000 belt life continue to scare me....but had 4 in the past and did enjoy the buffet free ride!!

Bottom line here: buy the Givi Adjustable and enjoy the ride.

I would like to comment that with my height and long torso, the Givi standard is perfect for me .
I can easily see over the screen instead of through it , plus it's cheaper than the adjustable.
Just my five cents worth.

Appreciate the feedback.....I also like looking over the windscreen rather than through it..I know the adjustable is just that,adjustable, but how much taller is it with the top screen at its lowest position and how high is it fully extended compared to the original John? And surlybiker58 how much taller is the standard Givi compared to the original? I am 6'1" with a 32" inseam....I assume that the measurement is taken from the key to the top of the screen.Again thanks folks!

Set in lowest position about 21" from keyhole---works fine and probably no higher than original---but air management better.

Rode in Snowstorm the other day near TN/VA border----look over great.

Have played with height adjustment on HIGHWAY but stopping to monkey-----higher does nothing for me other than put my neck at funny angle to look over. Can hurt after 8 hour day.

Fully extended I have no idea---looking thru can get you killed----but I suppose there is at least 3-4" of slide up adjustment.

Thank you for the response John.That gives me a better understanding of the height of the screen...I have not seen one in person and really had no idea....again thanks.

Thinking---about same price range....maybe Madstad should be tried----more adjustment possibilities..?

I have actual experience with many windhields/combos, use BMW air cooled boxer with Heinrich upper and lowers as---- base line for comfort/also vespa handlebar big shield current NT700V left alone up to 65 mph=fine--Givi Adjustable as good as going to get modern maxi scooter---I have owned TMAX, Helix 4,Reflex, Burgman 400 2 and now on second SilverWing---since people in the industry do not really ride everyday, buyers seem to have to figure out good air management on their own-----plus I bought all this stuff/used it to fairly high mileages....and ride/rode in all weathers. I buy all my bikes new, turn them into well used----buying new means I do not have to spend time un-screwing what somebody screwed up.

The Madstad works great for me.No wind in eyes like the clearview did.Tilted 58* is the sweet spot for me.Hat stays on at highway speed.The rain stays off hands now that the shield is wider.

I have never tried the Madstad so I can't comment how good it works. I do have the Givi Airflow and I think out of all choices it looks the best to me, and I know it works great for me. The Madstad pictures I have seen look like it could work Ok but as I said I think the Airflow looks best. It would be ideal if you could ride a few different friends Silverwings with different windshields to see what would work best for you.

Scoop.

I compared my OEM shield with the Givi Standard (non adjustable)
The Givi is roughly 4 and 3/8 inches taller
It's also wider

Thanks again for all of the input....I haven't checked into the Madstad.Thanks Surlybiker58 for the dimensions on the Givi Standard....Rode 185 miles today to go look a state park for camping possibilities.The wind picked up and became quite gusty and I was wishing at the time that I had something different.The wind gust was knocking my helmet around quite a bit.Not the first time though...I have never ridden any bike that I have owned that I did not have helmet buffeting.Must be nice sitting in calm air.
