    Baby d have the spacers made any difference ? I am not sure why it doesn't line up at the bottom .Did it line up before as there is only one hole .If the screen is not sitting bolt upright you can adjust it slightly side to side that may make it sit better .I hope that makes sense or helps.

    I don't know yet as with all the down time my bike has had over the last few months I will need to try with or without for a period of time

    Right......

    as you know I donít have the standard screen & fitted the spacers I got off fleebay, the spacers have already been removed due to angle it puts the screen at causing bright-distracting reflections of the tank filler in the screen.

    Because this Givi screen is taller & wider than the standard screen with the spacers fitted I Have to look through the screen which on the plus side I can have my visor open whilst doing more mph than I should with no issue

    So I will be posting them in the for sale section shortly

    I received my windscreen spacers today bought from eBay.
    I have the standard screen and I have just fitted them, however not able to test them tonight.
    I'll report back when I get the bike out again.
    I hope they are worth the £36 I paid for them. They were 39.99 but I made an offer and it got accepted.
    I have the Ducati touring screen for long planned trips and is fine for me but for daily normal use just looks too big.
    Very easy to fit and look and feel good quality.

    I want my helmet to be below the turbulence of the screen or completely in free air.  Either way is quiet.  The OEM screen has 7 cm travel.  That's not enough to do those two things.  It can't quite do either of those two things.  I bought the MRA Vario touring screen with spoiler.  It can't do either of those things either.  Although it is only 2 cm shorter than the OEM screen, it has much more rake, so the height is about 7cm shorter.  Even with the spoiler up it is not quite as tall as the OEM screen, and you get a lot of air coming over the raked screen under the spoiler (when its up).  If I take the spoiler off, I think I can get my helmet completely in the free air stream, and it might fix the OEM screen for high position to get my helmet completely out of the wind.  The Torx screws are so tiny I have to buy a bit.

    I'm 5-10, 32 inch inseam.

    Fitted Vario last week, I'm 5 9. Highest screen position, spoiler 2 clicks up. Wind hits directly in visor but is way smoother. I'm happy with the improvement over stock.

    Stock screen air hit top of helmet, buffeting was terrible though.

    That was my experience too.  With the OEM screen I car ride with visor open, sunshade down, fresh air.  Moving the airstream up about 3Ē from stock would do the trick, I think.  The spoiler might do that.

    I am 6-'5" and had terrible buffeting/noise issues with the stock screen.  Was going to purchase a V-Stream Touring Screen (Have one on my R1200GSA and have used on other bikes. Very effective and quiet.)

    Based on input from another MS 950 owner, I purchased one of these cheap deflectors on Amazon before spending big bucks on a screen or spacers:

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07M7YBB3N?ref=ppx_pop_dt_b_product_details&th=1

    Changed out the cheesy adjusting arm screws with stainless allen bolts, washers, and nylock nuts.

    Works great with the stock screen!  Buffeting/noise issues are virtually eliminated.  Stable and solid at Interstate speeds (and much higher...) Highly recommended.
