My bike is a Mark 1 from 2009 but if you have the same screen then the spoiler will auto fit. Either the standard spoiler or the larger spoiler versions I recently purchased.

I've got a Mk2 and the screen in the highest position is horrendous for helmet buffeting, so had to drop it to the lowest position - I'm only 5ft 7"! so what is the design point? - just purely marketing and a waste of OEM money!
Bought an MRA "touring screen" with the x-creen deflector. I thought when it said it was a "touring screen" it would be taller than the OEM - it is exactly the same height. So just causes the same buffeting!! & the taller adjustable x-creen still lets the same turbulence underneath it. So an absolute waste of over 100+.
Buy a TALLER screen with a forward flip top edge is my advice - or just put the screen on it's lowest position.

I recently bought an add on for the standard screen on my cbf100. It cost 44 including postage from a company on the Internet and it screws directly onto the top of my standard screen. A brilliant bit of kit. ( it also fits on the top of the screen on my BT 1100 Bulldog with the same excellent results, and only takes a few minutes to change it from one bike to another.)
I can't quite work out why manufacturers don't fit a useable screen as standard.
Ditto with comfortable seats, and centre stands!

Link for a very good add on screen deflector which is "universal" on our style of bike.
Log on to eBay, put in Moto Adventure clear windscreen deflector. Costs 42.95 plus about 2 postage. I use on my cbf1000 and also on my Bt1100 Bulldog.
It works equally well on both bikes, allowing buffet free riding, and only takes a few moments with an Allen key to change from one bike to another.... No drilling holes...
I have covered 2000 miles using it. I am 5'8" tall, and the deflector is adjustable if you are taller or shorter. Before fitting the deflector, the wind buffeting would loosen your fillings.

Here's a posting that shows that the MRA screen (with the Xcreen) is identical to the OEM screen.

Nice one, here's a link to the seller's eBay shop section for Wind Deflectors...

I like the look of the one's priced at 47.99
Here's a photo showing fitment to CBF1000 and link to the manufacturers web page....

Hi Alan. I jus fitted the xcreen to the hike and it does make the difference

I think the vents are a very important aspect.



The best touring screen I was ever behind was the factory Honda ST1100 touring screen which also had angled vents like that.

At 150 kph was like sitting in the living room ...but move you head 6" to either side and it's a wind tunnel.
