VTA Vario Touring Screen
Written by yankeesmuggler on 3/22/2011 at 08:56 pm

I think this was the company that worked with fellow Coaster Mac
McLaughlin a few years ago to make a PC800 version. It was never made,
but I can not remember why. Mac still uses the prototype on his PC
which you can check out at several of our 2011 rides I'm sure.

    I used a MRA replacement upper VarioScreen with attachment hardware. It was only $85.00 plus shipping. I added a file in the file section on mounting the extension. I am 6'4" and needed something until I got my clearview windshield. Ove

      Dave, I saw that but, I guess the description threw me. I had been looking to get the extension spoiler but, you are saying that the "replacement upper" works the same way? Thanks, Craig --- In

        The replacement VTA windscreen bolts on using 2 thumb screws and 2 holes. It is more of an extension of the Honda winsdsheild. I did not make slots in the Honda windsheild to make it adjustable. dave p --- In
