this is going to sound like a stupid question, but how did you get the original washer/grommets into the new MRA windscreen?

That was a few months back, and I remember having to fuss with the fasteners a bit, but it worked. Sorry I don't remember the deets.

Managed to get it on. Had to soak the grommets in hot water then push them through with a allen wrench.

Nice. Little envious of your longer riding season. Actually a lot envious, I went into the garage to get my snow tires for the truck, saw my bike sitting there, and a tear came to my eye. Take care.

Has anyone played around with removing the plastic edge trim that MRA includes?

I installed my 'S' Spoiler screen a couple days ago and like it, but I was getting a little more noise than I wanted where some dirty air was hitting the base of my helmet / shoulders at normal highway speed. At 85+ mph I was getting a fair bit of buffeting, about like the stock screen.

I pulled off that trim before I headed to work this morning and it was noticeably better, smoother air -- including at extra-legal speeds. I need to experiment and ride with it more to see if it really helped, or maybe the wind was in a more favorable direction coming into work this morning.

Curious if anyone else has noticed similar results? Not sure if that trim is there for aesthetic reasons (It does look nicer with it installed), or if it is supposed to help with the aero...

Got an MRA "S" type windscreen for my Cafe, tested it yesterday (took about 10 minutes to swap out OEM for the new one). Result: Great, money well spent. Moves the air blast off the chest, up to the helmet, no buffeting up to 140km/hr (oops went too fast but had to test properly, officer). This will extend my touring day by reducing fatigue and noise level. FYI I'm 5'10". Got the windscreen at twistedthrottle.ca, where I do any non-fortnine online purchases. No preference for one store over the other, but I do like the fortnine videos.

I know I'm a little late to reply to your post but just wanted to say that 613 Motorosports in Ottawa always beats Fortnine prices. Generally by around 10%. I email them the item I want. They send me a payable invoice. I pick up the part when it's in. I don't work there and he's not my best bud....just thought I would let you know if you want to save a bit of cash. Good guys to deal with. Cheap tires and $15 installation too. Hard to beat.
