    Mana Windscreen

    I finally bought the GIVI side bags and top case for my 2009 Red Mana (Naked), now the frontend looks too low and as if something is missing. So I am look for a windscreen/fairing. I don't like the look of the Puig screen.

    Have anyone tried one of these Givi screens on the Mana??



    What other ones will work???

    I have not tried the Givi screens, but I mounted a MRA VARIO TOURING SCREEN FOR NAKED BIKES (VTNB) , found no difference in windprotection and loudness between the different positions of the Vario part and disassembled the Vario part so that it actual is a MRA SPEEDSCREEN FOR NAKED BIKES (SPS) with 4 little holes (closed with 6mm plugs from a Triumph handlebar mounting screws)

    I too have the MRA Vario screen. It took a while to get the angle of the screen adjusted properly. The Vario part works for me, but like I said it took many miles until I got it right.
    In all I don't really like the look of this screen. The lines just doesn't seem to flow with the rest of the Mana.

    Thumbs up

    I've got what looks like the lower Givi screen. It seems to work fine and is not obtrusive. It balances out the tailbag on the other end. BUT, this all-purpose screen needed some hardware modification. The plastic clamp needed some grinding to fit on the bar next to the brake reservoir. Also, I'd recommend not fitting the caps for the screwheads until you are sure screen is perfectly level over the headlight. It takes a bit of readjusting to get the screen just right.

    Ferdi, thanks for the pictures. The MRA screen looks great, the best I can find is about $152 shipped here: http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade...view/2084/743/
    It is now at the top of my list.

    BTW, what is that bracket mounted near your left rear footpeg in the photo?

    I poked around the twistedthrottle site and found some more universal screens with handlebar mount that should fit. What do you all think about this one?

    that is the grip for the center stand, to get the bike easy on it.
    you push the center stand with the right food and simultaneous pull with the hand on the grip and the bike rolls onto the stand like magic


    please note that you need the MRA mounting kit for thick handlebars
    Mana 850 requires fitting kit MRA.HKM28

    I had to grind my right mountings because I ordered the 1" version.
    fits on my left mounting, but is too tiny at my right one, because Mana handlebar is conical, thick in the middle and at its mountings and gets thinner before the mirror mountings.

    it is German, the prices are Euros, exchange rate at time is about EUR/USD = 1 : 1.4 .

    so, 100 Euros are 140 USD

    Did you have to remove the motor mounting bolt or do they just bolt to each side?
