The MRA touring is a popular choice which many seem to swear by but others say itís ineffective- it all boils down to your stature, ergos, etc. Do a search and youíll see quite a few opinions.

I very recently fitted one and did 1500 miles in 5 days and found it a very significant improvement for my 6 foot. I am getting another bike tomorrow so this will become surplus to requirements but judging by your user name this would unlikely be logistically practical for you if you were interested in it.

Most of the buffeting comes from a low pressure area forming behind the screen as the bike is travelling at speed, and the air rushing in to fill that void is what is actually causing the buffeting.

I've got a 'screen adaptor' kit from http://www.palmerproducts.co.uk/ (http://www.palmerproducts.co.uk/) - it holds the screen away from the fairing allowing air to pass under the screen, preventing the low pressure area being created.

I'm 6'6" - after fitting that riser I'd honestly reckon the buffeting was reduced by a good 90% !!

I've covered over 50,000 miles on the bike with that screen adaptor - bloody brilliant bit of kit - and it allows you a good range of screen heights and angles.

My 99 was terrible. Several costly options and didnít want to make a mistake so bought a cheap adjustable clamp on one off amazon. Came from China, arrived quick and decent quality it works a treat even in the lowest setting on the stock screen.
