Looks like the same one he... had. Whether it was the off brand lip, the puig, or the sound barrier, all three were a bad combination. :)

To be fair, the spoiler held up great. Who knows the number of miles and the unspeakable speed atrocities that that puig had been subjected to before the spoiler was even applied.

I wish the Chinese would start making knockoffs of Cee Bailey windshields.

These are the ones I have on my CBF1000 and VFR..... dunno what jwilly's problem is...... these things do what MRA does only a whole heckuva lot cheaper. These days, I'm a believer in these rather than chasing/trying all the different windshields to find the one that annoys you the least.
Do you have a link for these? I have wanted to try out the MRA but it is a bit rich for an experiment. Currently using a Cee Bailey reverse flip. I also have a stock shield and a Vstream. I am fairly tall and I have not found any of these capable of providing a quiet pocket with low wind noise.

Is it the same as?

Very same... from China... note there are two sizes (widths) and 3 tints.... AliExpress will be direct to your mailbox. I expect you want the wider one. I have one of each, but the wider one works better. Very adjustable.

I found the direct AliExpress link, I think.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3296134 ... 9976%23639

Even cheaper than through Ebay. I think it wider than the ones I linked as well. I assume you got the larger version that clips on rather than drilling through the windshield? Untinted?
I think I will give it a try. Says 15 to 35 days for delivery...
Thanks

There is no drilling, I wouldn't get that type. I have the 370mm wide one, it is the one you want. These days you are looking at a month for delivery due to decreased number of airplanes flying. Try this link, I ordered 2 @ U$8 each, on May 26, left China June 1, Canada Post is swamped but I've seen new stuff jump the cue and make it here sooner. Haven't found these cheaper anywhere else.

I already ordered the one in my post, above. A little more expensive at $23 CDN vs $14 CDN but shipping was $5 instead of $13.61 CDN - so about the same overall. Did not see the one you linked on their site. Only significant difference appears to be 360 mm vs 370 mm - don't think it will matter.
Cheap experiment to try and if it doesn't work or the quality is poor, I have spent less than the cost of a tank of gas.
