Okay, gents, I’m convinced - will order the Puig Sports screen. It looks the part too, true that! Let the quest for quiet end here.

Thank you for your clear thoughts on the subject  :763:

+ 1 on the Puig sport screen - works perfectly for me (I'm 6ft) and it looks great too  :001:

Thanks for the responses.  Mic was on my chest/beer gut.  I guess I will have to trade it in, can't see anyone wanting this bike after riding it.  It really diminishes the fun for me listening to a howl rather than the engine... unless I exceed the speed limits.  Great bike otherwise.
You say you used a chest mic, did that video sound like what you hear in your helmet when riding?

I am not quite sure what your expectations were are or what your previous experience is, but if I were looking for a 2nd hand MTS950, I would have no qualms about test riding yours based on what I saw and heard in your video, and I don't see why anyone else would be put off it either.

The OP has a 2020 bike. As for the Leo Vince pipe, the diameter of the header pipe is different between 2017-20 and 2021- bikes. The relevant part number for 2017-20 bikes is 80011 which won't fit the 2021- Euro 5 Multistrada 950. For the latter you need part number 80028.

So, after 57500 miles I’ve hit my first reliability issue with the Multi……..the clutch cable is fraying and breaking away at the lever! Only noticed it on Sunday when it was becoming progressively more difficult to shift down. Now sweating a bit, I made the 64 miles home, only having to use the clutch three times…..the traffic was kind to me!

A new cable should be with my mechanic tomorrow, costing me some £37. It makes me appreciate the hydraulic clutch and quickshifter of my Monster.

I had my clutch cable go much earlier than that - but was my fault for installing poor aftermarket levers.
I had a nerve wracking ride for about 15 miles home riding clutchless - tricky at junctions!!!
Had evotech levers put on after that.

I think the V2 has a hydraulic clutch. My clutch cable broke on my 91 Honda Nighthawk 750 this summer, and I was about 1h from home, good times riding no clutch, good thing I didn't have to go through the city...

Careful - you could start another hundred page conversation at the mention of "what screen" :-)

I went from standard to standard with spacers to MRA Touring to Puig Sports (I mis-remembered which one I bought).

The sport is the smallest and for me is the quietest.
And I'd rather have a bit of quiet high-speed wind flow over me than the roaring noise and buffeting I get from either standard screen or touring screen.
