Givi A2118 Windscreen Yamaha FZ-07 2014-2016
Happy with my decision to get this one.
Finishes off the FZ07 nicely. Unlike some previous reviews no trip to the hardware store was necessary, all the bolts fit fine.
There was some initial mis-alignment (slightly higher on one side) but that was easily adjusted.

Exactly what I needed
I'm 6ft and this works great for me. I can easily cruise at 80 MPH with wind gliding off my helmet instead of buffeting my chest. Prior to the windscreen riding at 65 was sketch. Now its smooth as butter. Also the Styling matches the bike IMO.

Can't install it until I go to the hardware store!
So, I WAS excited to install my windshield today, but I was left quite disappointed. Upon opening the box, I come upon a set of rather vague instructions, and upon taking some time to decipher them, I managed to figure out what to do. I figured that it would take 10 minutes or so to install this product; boy I was wrong.
Where you attach the brackets to the headlight unit, the instructions call for you to reuse the two bolts that were previously on the headlight unit. This step right here is where it falls apart. The stock bolt is just like a centimeter too short to thread, counting for the thickness of the bracket. So, without running to the hardware store to get a longer bolt, I can't install this!
So, be aware that this product may require a short trip to the hardware store to make it work! I'll update this review with actual thoughts on the product when I get it installed on my FZ-07 in the near future.
I've attached a photo of the two bolts that won't thread (the silver ones) so others know what I'm having issues with.

Glad I bought this one
I was between this windshield and another one, I'm glad I went with this one as it looks good on the bike and also does the job really well. Yes, I still feel the air hitting me but not as much as it did before without one. It makes my commute easier without getting all the wind blast into my chest.

After researching, I went with the Givi Windscreen because I loved the way it looked. It enhances the looks of the bike and to me is the best looking out of all the other windscreens. IT functions well at highway speeds. I no longer feel the turbulent wind. it is more focused on my chest and helmet.

I believe this is the best looking windscreen for the FZ-07 on today's market. Installation was a breeze and took maybe 15 minutes max. Being 6'1" I did not expect all wind to be blocked however it does keep the wind off my chest which is a great improvement! I still get hit with wind on my helmet however I do not feel like I'm fighting to stay on the motorcycle above 70+ MPH. Definitely recommend this for your FZ-07.

Looks great, partial windbreak
This windscreen is the best looking screen of all I've seen for the FZ07 and it totally fixes the slightly odd look of the front end of the bike above the headlight (IMO). Its' design really does look like it should have been on the bike from the factory. It also protects the back of the electronic display module from bugs and still allows good access to the key with gloves on. I've compared wind pressure on the hi way with and without the screen in place and it does relieve wind pressure on my midsection so I'm not hanging on to the bars so tight at hi way speeds. It doesn't improve wind pressure on my upper chest and helmet (Shoei GT Air) but the wind is very steady and not turbulent at all for me. The FZ is my second naked bike and I didn't buy it to put a monster windscreen on it so I could completely escape the wind or a few bugs and was never really bothered by a little steady wind pressure. Don't get me wrong, a big screen is nice on chilly morning rides but when its hot out I don't like not having air flow to my body since I always ride with an armored jacket that can get hot when air is blocked from the jackets vents (which are usually on the upper half of most jackets). For me getting some air on my upper body is a good thing since it allows me to get and control cooling air via my jacket vents. After all, isn't half the fun of riding a motorcycle just getting out in the rushing breeze, especially on a warm day? Bottom line is that this windscreen looks great, keeps bugs out of hard to clean places and relieves a little wind pressure at high speed and delivers air flow where I need it. In my book that's a winning combination.

Directs the wind straight to your helmet.
This is the single biggest mistake in a product purchase that I have made for my Yamaha FZ-07. I cannot imagine riding with such a poorly designed product, and I tried it on three separate occasions.
The windshield directs the air straight into my face and I am 5'-10" tall. I even felt air rushing down the collar of my jacket which I had never felt in 30 years of riding. My helmet is an extremely quiet HJC CL-14. The Givi screen makes the helmet "roar" in the wind.
It looks beautiful on the bike, but appearance is deceiving with the Givi windscreen for the FZ-07.
