Add on Spoiler no longer required
« on: September 20, 2018, 08:25:42 AM »
I would like to try adding an add on spoiler, similar to the picture below, with the Triumph Touring Screen on my mk1 Tex.

Has anyone got a spoiler loitering in their garage that I can try?

Although I put my Madstad screen (from this https://www.tiger-explorer.com/index.php/topic,17674.0.html thread) back on my Gen 1 Tex, I'd still be interested in how the MRA works for you.  Looks like you ordered the sport version.  Please report back!

The overall effect is a reduction in overall noise levels, I no longer need to increase the volume of my intercom for any legal speeds. The wife says that noise is significantly reduced.

The type of noise is still the same, a large screen creates the buffeting noise rather than the wind noise, this will take getting used to. I can ride with visor open comfortably upto 50mph and can ride with my Shark Evo One in open face configuration at any legal speeds.

I believe that the MRA spoilers do make an improvement in airflow / wind noise levels.
