    Hi coolonthecoast,
    Which Puig screen have you fitted? Does it foul the bars on full lock?

    Sorry for the slow response Nigel. Our home broadband has been out of order for over a week now. I'm about to lynch our ISP! I'm not sure which Puig screen I have. From what others have said I assume it's the tall one. It doesn't snag the bars on full lock but it's far bigger than the OE screen. Approx 57cm from top to bottom. When we finally get the broadband back I'll post up a photo.

    Just purchased a 2016 Giallo Dune Capo Rally last month. First mod is an MRA Touring screen, the standard one without an adjustable top flap. My goal is actually slightly less coverage but smoother airflow. I ordered it in clear, unsmoked, from Twisted Throttle yesterday.

    I have used and liked the Givi tall screen. It works very well for me.

    The MRA Touring screen just arrived from Twisted Throttle and it is of excellent quality. Perfect clarity and looks like OEM grade, not thin and floppy plastic. Its top edge is ~2.5" above the upper mounting bolts, that's 4.5" below the stock Rally screen. It has no flip-up or reverse curvature, just a smooth backward curve when viewed in profile.

    Any chance of some pictures for comparison? I am thinking of ordering the same screen.

    2Wheeled, here's my MRA Touring screen in profile. As you can see, there is only a smooth backward curvature towards the top- no upsweep whatsoever. In this photo it's just 1/4” from fully lowered in the brackets.

    Out here in the driveway waiting for the Brown Santa and a box from AF1, holding a pair of CRG Roll-a-clicks and a Rizoma gas cap!

    Thanks Ricardo, it looks good on the bike. I think I will go ahead and get one.
    The Giallo Dune is the best looking colour for a Capo I reckon, but maybe I'm a little biased!

    Quite right! Aesthetically it enhances the already sporty lines of this motorcycle. I think Miguel Galluzzi might even approve...haha.

    Function-wise it gives me an actually usable range of wind management. The stocker gave too much of everything at its lowest setting, and it got worse when raised! On this one I can find a sweet spot, then + or - to suit conditions.

    Tried to obtain a Calsci screen in the UK through Heroblobs the UK distributor. They are unable to supply any Calsci screen for the caponord and suggested trying Cal Sci direct. They want $200 for the screen and 70+ for shipping. OUCH!
    not sure that the puig or MRA will be big enough for what i want.

    Is that a Puig touring screen for the Capo 1200?

    Cal-Sci refunded me part of the shipping fee that was over and above costs. No guarantee it will happen to you, but has happened to 2 of us that I know of.
