Screen adjustment
« on: May 13, 2017, 02:39:02 PM »
Hi Guys I have just purchase my white 950 mts on Wednesday and am very happy with the bike. I found that the screen was not too bad although there was a bit of turbulence. I loosened the top two screws on the screen and then put an inch spacer in at the bottom screw (had to find a longer screw with washer etc.) and have found it to be a great job. I can now travel with the visor up although I have the inner dark drop down screen to protect my eyes but you should try it out as I think this is a simple fix for the already great multi 950

Good tip but I'm confused. If you pack out the bottom screw then that makes the top of the screen tip towards you😕
I would of thought the top of the screen needs to be pushed away from you??

no it is all about getting air in at the back of the screen to stop the turbulence. it is a simple fix. just try it and see and if it is not for you put it back the way it was.

My MRA screen came with rubber spacers and longer bolts so this  manufacturer must do this to improve air flow!

What size bolt to we need for the screen fixings. It measures across about 5mm but is that the actual thread size?
Where did you get your bolt from and did it look similar to the original?
Your trick works well. I want for a short run without the bottom bolt fitted and wedged out at the bottom with a 20mm spacer. It worked a treat 😀

Yes, it is a 5 mm. Bolt, which I found lying about in my garage. I then used two irubber  washers until I
 Get it properly sorted. I am glad that you have found it to be of help
