Givi A2118 Windscreen Yamaha FZ-07 2014-2015
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.

Good lucks; bad fit
This windscreen was purchased for a 2015 Yamaha FZ-07. While the overall looks from a bit of distance is steller, getting up close and personal will show fitment issues. QA is generally a tiny bit lacking. The install instruction call for the use of two stock bolts and two provided bolts in order to affix the brackets to the facia of the bike. Not only do the provided bolts not match the stock two, but due to variable thicknesses in the finish of the mounting brackets, the throttle side bolt cannot engage. This can be easily remedied by purchasing 4 matching third party bolts from Home Depot or the like. What cannot be fixed is the final fitment issue. These shields will not sit flush or even on the bike. One side will hover a few mm off. These two issues are apparently quite common and my emails and support requests to Givi USA have fallen on def ears.
With all that said and done, it's not terrible per say and still looks quite nice. However, if you want true form and function to help eliminate that turbulence on the freeways, there are options out there better than this. It's a shame cause as flawed as this screen is, I can still tell quite a bit of difference. If the final fitment was solid, I'm sure my slipstream would be flawless.

Some hardware was missing upon arrival. Had to go to the hardware store and hunt down an acrylic washer and a metal flat washer. I didn't expect this from such a good company. Other than that, the install was easy and the piece is of great quality.

Just for the looks
Buy if you like the looks. I'm not a fan of the Puig or Yamaha stock screens and I didn't want anything too large like an ADV or Cruiser. This windscreen gave the bike a nice sleek look, with a bit of an "Alien Queen" kind of feel. Nice that it's tall enough to hide the wiring as well (FZ-07's headlight hangs too low, wish it was higher like the FZ-09).
Look elsewhere if you need something to block a lot of wind. It's still a hurricane at highway speeds.

Clean and tidy
Fits nice. Still keeps the naked look of the bike. Helps a tad bit on the wind slapping you in the face, but not much.

Givi windshield for Yamaha fz07
Delivery came on time. Easy to install took me 10 min. Looks great on my Yamaha FZ-07. At low speed the windshield isn't need but at higher speed it does a good job blocking some wind. I would recommend this windshield for anyone that does freeway riding or longer trips.

Looks great and helps with wind
This screen was easy to install and looks great on my FZ-07. The screen serves a dual purpose. Enhance the beauty of the bike and helps cut down on the wind, while riding on the roads around town and short hops on a highway. If you want a screen for longer highway trips, this is not your screen, a taller screen is required. However, it is the perfect screen for my needs.

Great addition to the FZ-07
I just installed this screen today and took it for a test ride. On the highway, with speeds above 70mph, I still felt quite a bit of wind on my chest and helmet, but I didn't feel like I was getting blown off the bike as I did before the windscreen. If I went into a tucked position, I could easily take it up to higher speeds and felt very little wind. Reminded me of a sportbike.
I knew I didn't want a tall windscreen which would take away from the awesome styling of the FZ-07, so I knew I wouldn't get the greatest wind protection. This one does however offer enough and looks great on the motorcycle. I highly recommend it. My favorite purchase for the bike so far.
