Interesting... I had gone to a short Puig screen, but now I have the Iconic spacers for my 2014 Multistrada 1200S. I went back to the stock screen with the Iconic spacers, and feel a definite improvement.For reference i have the puig touring screen with the blade on. im 6'3" and after i made and fitted my spacers i have removed the blade. mostly ride around with an open face lid too.
I have the exact same set up. I'm 5.10 and I can now ride the bike with the touring screen. Before, it was completely unrideable for for me and so far, I am happy.Interesting...

I also have the the Puig touring screen with an MRA X-Screen Tour blade on it. Going to try that with the spacers next. I'm 6' 2".
How's the mechanical stress with that big screen on the spacers?
Hi @AXSPwr , what size of the CalSci did you install? I'm 6'1", probably would use the same or maybe one size smaller.Just installed these spacers behind a Cal Sci large windscreen, I have to say they work really well. Maybe too well. Prior to the spacers I never had much buffetting w/ the Cal Sci, but the noise at even surface street speeds was atrocious. Ear plugs were mandatory equipment for me on this bike. With the spacers the noise is gone, I can comfortably ride without earplugs. That's the good news. Bad news with such a large windscreen, at 6'2" my entire head is now sitting in a pocket of still air. Helmet vents on my Neotec don't work at all, even riding with the faceshield up doesn't really help. Would be unbearable on a hot summer day. Next I'll try with the smaller Cal Sci shorty screen.
Got it, thanks.@fipenna I have the large Cal Sci, as well as the tinted shorty. I thought about getting the XL, but I'm glad I didn't, because as others have mentioned (it's the reason these spacers exist) the size of the screen isn't the issue on the MTS, it's the location and angle.
I've ridden bunches of bikes w/ screens on them, never encountered anything quite like the pocket of dead air I've now got with this bike/screen combo. A bonus, though, is that I'm getting no bugs on my faceshield, and somehow fewer on the windshield too.
