there;s also the Laminar Lip...

from the looks of it, depending on the height of your windscreen, the MRA might be TOO high...although the adjustability would be nice

Im going this direction

I have a laminar lip on a stock C10 shield.  it adds about 2 inches and pushes the wind to the top of my helmet (I'm 6 feet tall).  Mine is an older model and attaches with velcro, but I drilled holes thru it and put wing nuts to hold it more secure.

I have tried both the Laminar Lip and the MRA X-Screen. I prefer the MRA due to no buffeting in combination with my Rifle setup.

I recommend the clear, as looking through the tinted version causes some issues when combined with a tinted visor and also at night with a clear visor.

Bolt-on. But IIRC the clamp-on version includes both types of mounts. Mine is currently a little high on the Rifle I have, but I am going to relocate it again soon. The windscreen is beginning to look like a test platform anyway, so what will a couple more holes matter.

With my hearing issues, I am more concerned with dampening noise than how the acrylic looks getting there.

twisted throttle says they fit just fine. If anyone was going to have an issue, I would say the clamp on would, as it would have to clamp over the lipped edge on the stock shield. The bolt on looks like it bolts in below the lip

Mike, I think your right it looks like it should work just fine. I will give it a couple of weeks to recover from the Christmas financial drain and then order one. I was considering a lot of different options including the madstad but really I kind of like the stock shield except for the turbulence on the helmet which I think the MRA extension will help a lot with. Thanks, Herbie

Wow - that looks like a very cool setup. I wonder if they would sell just the brackets? I've done some experimenting, and adding similar panels to the sides of the windshield provide great airflow control for both hot and cold days - I just need a good, adjustable attachment.
