    Ran the stocker with extensions (Wunderlich or MRA X-creen) and could never get comfortable with the bobble head. The Rade EVO 6 is by far a great improvement.

    Getting a little light bleed from the euro headlight but tape fixes that easily. The increased width covers the fairing gap completely, something the stocker never did. Nice touch.

    Is that a Rade model? Not the lights but the windshield. .......

    well after several hundred miles and a lot of wind, ill have to say this screen is way better than the stocker with buffeting. my gps mount blocks light bleed and space creates a great area to hold my hat while going down the road. waiting on my high beam light to come in from raid so I can adjust it. lighting is way better as well in junction with the led lights that come with the Baja, this light works really good.

    It was said in the first post. IMO The lighting is better but not as good as the EURO light.

    I had a Euro light with hid, whilst bright it scattered the light badly, and main beam was worse than useless.

    The twin hid of the Rade was at first not that great after roughly setting the aim, so I set up the aim exactly as per the British mot test standard and now they are really good. Dip had a nice sharp cut off so not dazzling oncoming traffic, not super bright but good, and main is now good enough to ride at speed at night. If I was to be picky I would say the main doesn't throw the light as far as I would like, but I'm being a bit picky about that as its acceptable as it is.

    Just received mine as well, about ten day process from payment to receipt. No issues with mounting, all of the holes lined up. I really like the change in airflow! Thanks Rade!

    His website radegarage.com says so...

    Anyone tried the RR screen with the touratech navigation mount for the 990s?

    If this works, I'm in!
