The MDA Vario screen and Waspworks screen adjuster.

One word - brilliant.
Karen and I did a 80 mile trip on motorways yesterday. Unfortunately there was a strong side wind which did not help but there was none of the buffetting and noise of the previous Yam big screen.
Previously she suffered a heavy wind thumping on the top of her head that after an hour of so gave her head and neck ache.
That buffeting has now gone and although there is still some noise it is much lower than previously.
I have not had a chance to try the screen adjuster through its full range but as Greg (from Warpworks) has previously shown, the range of adjustments is immense. Here are some piccys of some of the possible adjustments:

General view


MDA Vario screen and Waspworks screen adjuster.


Vario spoiler out


Vario spoiler in


Wasps adjuster fully back


Wasps adjuster forward up


and Forward down


And finally the Yamaha BIG screen placed in front of the Vario. Screws aligned (only one set in the Vario).


As I posted this last photo a thought occurred to me.
I may try the Vario spoiler on the big Yamaha screen but upside down (to match the screen top edge) and see what happens. I will need the Wasp adjuster to get some air under the screen. Whats a few extra holes in a £120 screen between friends ! As I do not intend to go above 100mph (mainly due to my TCK80 tyres) It might work.
Food for thought.

I'm really hoping and praying the stock shield works for me. These aftermarket just detract from the looks so horribly. We'll see in 3-4 months. Nothing personal on this shield in particular, it's all of them. Crash bars, skid plate, hard luggage, all that stuff detracts also. I'll be going standard Yamaha issue.

You have a point and I agree. The only aftermarket shield I ever thought looked better than oem was the Touratech Desertio on my F800 that I had. Other than that, it all looks, well it looks after thought, butched, buttered, rolled, and see what stuck, kinda thing.

The stock shield with the Motorradgarage adjustable bracket works a treat. Not completely stock, but pretty hard to tell unless you look closely.

I think most people are using the stock screen Frank.
That is what I use, and that's my recommendation.

Greg.

Dear US resident, this is the pillion seat of my XT1200Z. It's the place my wife puts her tight ass (pilates instructor) when we go for bike rides.
I paid US$21,250.78 for the privilege.

Guess what, you've still got around another 3,652hrs to go before ANY of you will have the pleasure of sitting your wife on your own XT1200Z seat.

So STFU about the ~$100 price difference you're getting, and start making some accessories (I need a really short tinted screen).

Thanks Greg. And that is what I will do then.

I like Wasp's adjustable screen brackets and planning to use it with the stock screen. I would like to mount my Zumo 550 on the top cross bar. Has any one done that yet? I like to know if the GPS blocks any of the gauges or if it get in the way of adjustments for the screen.

I am waiting for am SW-Motech GPS mount to arrive. I think I am going to have problems mixing it with Wasps screen adjuster, due to the presence of the bars. Greg says the bars are needed for stiffness and cannot be done without.
If you mount something to the top bar it will spin around when you adjust the screen as the bars are only a strenthening spacer and are not fixed. On top of that they are only about 8-10mm in dia so finding a fixing might not be easy.
