I installed a small clear shield not much bigger than an A4 paper on my VTR250 because above 120 km/h it was not comfortable on longer rides.
That little thing made a big difference.
But don't expect a shield to make the air flow go away - it bundles it and a small shield may take the pressure off your chest, then shove it in your face.

Hi Malcolm - just resurrecting this thread - now that you've had the screen for 3 months, what do you think??? Thanks in advance....

Hey, I would be happy to give you a review.....except a van decided to back into me the week before it arrived and trashed my F.

I ended up trading it in for the X, and ended up loving it more. The X's screen is about the same height as the Puig would have been and it works fantastically. If that helps

There are a few threads in this section, mostly about the Ermax and MRA screens. I've got the MRA and am putting it on the bike in the next couple of days.

Most naked bikes will look a bit odd with an added screen of any substance. I didn't find the stock screen on the R to be that substantial either, but obviously since it has mounting points, other screens are more easily possible.

Sorry, have been really busy lately, but I will post some pics of the mounted MRA screen tomorrow. Looks more stylish than I thought and has WAY better coverage than the Ermax. Difference is night and day; it makes highway riding a breeze (apologies for the bad pun lol).

Yah, my original mounting was a bit lower and more flush with the digital display/panel, but I couldn't get it perfectly symmetrical in that orientation, so now it's slightly higher and more raised. Still seems sturdy and I'm no longer niggled at by the asymmetry lol. Be sure to post pics/ride reports when you get yours set up.
