I am not was not a fan of the headlight / cowl area on the naked GSXS so looking for a screen to clean her up some. The OEM is nice and really more the direction I want nut to have to drill holes on the plastic is kinda a joke but will still consider it. The MRA Race is nice but a bit taller then I want but probably could trim her down. I also see that the MRA uses bracket to mount, could someone post picks from the seat to show what that looks like as well a up close from the front. What are the thoughts on the OEM screen as for mounting ?

thank you
Ray

From my riding position (height only 162 cm) middle part of the dash fully visible, but on both sides the view of the two bottom lights is blocked by the brackets.

They changed the mounting brackets on the MRA, the earlier ones fixed to the handlebar clamp with a single hole now they use both holes. Much more secure but does it obstruct the panel less?
Just had a look at the fitting PDF file seems you can see the whole panel now. (y)

Looking at that pic that Kovax posted, I swear that mine uses all 4 bolts on the bar clamp (it's less than 2 yrs old).

Either way, I use it at the beginning and end of riding season when the temps are cool. Once things warm up I don't mind getting the wind blast on my chest as it cools you down so the MRA come off in less than a few minutes..

Honestly for me it comes down to I love the naked look and have had naked since 03 but the junction above the head light is just plain ugly to me. I am looking for something to clean it up.

I recently sold my GSXS but I had a Suzuki Bking windshield on it that I thought looked awesome, see pic. Drawback was that I had to make the mounting bracket for it. Side note. Bought my GSXS 2 years ago, put 9K miles on it and sold it for exactly what I paid for it, awesome deal!! Picked up a 2015 FJ-09 with only 4K miles on it to mix it up.

So I was dragging my butt on ordering the MRA Racing Screen and went to do it tonight but both Revzilla and Twisted Throttle are out of stock. I can get the direct for more money but hoped to keep it stateside, any thoughts / help? Or is it just a waiting game ?
Thank you

I am in no hurry and at this point plan on waiting as it is the best looking screen in my opinion.
The Ermax is not too bad either though.
