This is good information. Thank you! I was looking at the Puig Touring but will probably pass now.

I too have been looking at options for my 2018 XRT. I am 6’1” and get buffering when the stock screen is all the way up. I ride with the seat in the tall position. I’ve tried riding with the seat on low, which helps with buffering but I find the position too cramped for my legs.

I tried the MRA X-Creen sport which didn’t do a thing. I might try the X-Creen Touring, as it’s significantly larger. I’ve also tried pushing the screen off the mounts about 1/2” like recommended and didn’t notice too much difference.
Did you find anything that worked well for you on the MK3 Mark?

I bought the puig touring screen with the screwed on visor.
I think it is excellent except the brackets that hold the visor on have metal strips in them which break when you adjust it and the springs pop out!
I've taken the springs out and hope that it will still be stable...

I did! I just purchased the MRA X-Creen Touring and installed it on my Tiger.  I previously had the smaller sport version which didn’t do much. The larger touring version is fantastic and smooths the wind nicely. I would highly recommend it. I bought the screen with the clamp kit, however it also includes the fixed hardware, which I installed yesterday and was very easy to do.

Excellent, any chance of a photo? How wide is it at the top compared to the OEM?

Decidedly looks like the solution I'm looking for...
I assume you need drilling the screen to attach the spoiler?

Yes you will need to drill into your windscreen. I initially had it clamped on but decided I liked it so made it permanent. If you purchase the screen with the clamp mount kit, it also includes the screw mounting hardware.

Thanks for all the advice, have to say this is the only issue I have encountered so far. Being 6'2" I am experiencing some buffeting at speed and have been looking for a suitable solution  :028:
