I have the MRA windshield, at 6' it pushed the air to my shoulder, the air is clean, no buffeting.

Its great to have a bubble at high speed!

It also look good i think, better in person.

I've tried a few of them... the OEM Tall screen, Puig Naked Touring, PowerBronze, and MRA.

What I found is that they all stream air about the same with no buffeting, so it ended up being "the look" for me.

Physical traits of the screens I have - the OEM Tall is rock solid with thick plastic and super dark smoke. The PowerBronze not quite as solid but stable with thick plastic and not as dark as OEM screen. The MRA not quite as stable as the PowerBronze with thinner plastic and lighter smoke than PowerBronze.

The Puig Naked Touring streams air up the highest, so it's probably best for either a tall rider or a short rider. At an even 6' height, the air was hitting the top of my helmet creating a slight booming sound. But of course, it may depend on helmet design and riding position as well.

All the others stream air anywhere from the top of my shoulders to helmet visor while leaning forward slightly (my normal riding position). Clean air and they create no additional noise. The Ali Express screen looks like a good one to try out also.

@ cazzy_R
Is that the actual double bubble you ordered ?
Did it fit straight out of the box
Im after one, but was not sure if quality of Ali express was inferior?

I'm currently riding with the vstream touring shield - i'm liking how it feels in terms of wind.  I don't feel much buffeting at all to be honest...

Rider in Finland here. 174cm and 30 inseam.
I installed the OEM high screen and don't feel any abnormal wind buffeting on my helmet, the 120-140km/h highway cruise is so comfortable compared to Yamaha MT-07 that I used to own, and I tried both Puig sport and touring screen on that bike.

I have to say that comparing to MT-07/MT-09, this bike is way more comfortable at speed even though it'a still a naked bike, probably due to seating position and "smaller" throttle opening needed to maintain highway speed.

 Clint.
 Sorry I missed this. Might be too late now but.........  :034:

 Aliexpress quality and fit is fine, It's the same stuff as on eBay. You just pay less and usually wait longer.

 

 I don't recall the exact vendor but they are all peddling the same stuff.
Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.
