MRA Windscreen on the G310R

I received the MRA Windscreen today from Twisted Thottle. The installation was very easy, only taking a few minutes.

The instructions were decent, but I found it easier to build the bracket onto the Windscreen, then mounting the loosely assembled Windscreen to the stem bolts. The directions have you build from the stem bolts out to the Windscreen.

Stem bolts were torqued to 20Nm.

Here is a collage of views of the MRA Windscreen and collage of Before & After pictures.

How much does it help with the wind pressure on your body?

It significantly reduces the wind pressure that I felt against my chest any time I'm riding 60-75 mph.

I'm 5'10" and the windshield puts the wind line above my chest. For me I feel much less wind pressure, turbulence and noise. My neck and helmet are still exposed, but I could lay on the tank to avoid it all. I don't typically ride this bike over 70mph, so not a big deal for me.

Did you buy the Universal model or the model designated for the G310R. I have had my eyes on one of these since I got my bike at the beginning of November. Any relief of wind pressure on my chest will be welcome and I like the look it adds to the bike. Many reviews talk about trouble with installation but it sounds like you have figured out a better way around it. Hope you enjoy. Maybe I will have one under the Christmas tree in a few weeks???!!!

Yes, saw one and thought it looked fine so ordered one and fitted it last week. Fitting was not as easy as it should have been. I carefully followed the instructions but discovered that once I had fitted the supporting brackets as shown in the photo you couldn't fit the screen. Had to take them off and switch them. On mine, unlike the photo, the vertical flange on the brackets must be fitted towards the outside. Should have done as previous poster suggested and started with fitting the brackets to the screen. Anyway, a few dropped washers later and the evening had gone entirely. And there must be an easy way to fit the plastic beading along the top edge of the screen but it eluded me.

Of course it does take much of the wind off your chest which in current sub temperatures is a blessing but amplifies the noise. (Try standing on the pegs) I'm experimenting with mounting an old spoiler on the top edge. Possibly a slight improvement.

Hello guys, I dont have any tools to fix the windscreen, how do I go about buying them? Please let me know. This is my first motorcycle here in the US, and never really had to do the mechanic stuff in the past, so am worried and tensed on how to get this work done. I already received the windscreen for my G310R and waiting to fix it soon.
