Puig Racing Windscreen Yamaha FZ6 2004-2006
Excellent fit and function
Fits perfectly in place of the OEM windscreen. Airflow is much improved over OEM in both 3/4 and full tuck. The dark smoke also looks much better on my black bike than the clear OEM.

Very good product.
I have been using it for 2 months and noticed that wind protection improves much more from the OEM Kawasaki windshield.
My motorcycle still looks very nice because of its design.

Good value and makes a noticeable difference.
The screen looks great on the bike. More importantly, it makes the ride more calm and comfortable, whether you are commuting on the highway or tucked in on a straightaway at the track.

Looks great. Has the 1000RR logo which came silver and matches my bike. Easy enough install and as always fast shipping and easy shopping with the Zilla.

I got this to help with the wind noise on my FZ6. I wear an HJC IS-16, and spend most of my time on the interstate at about 80mph. I wear NRR33 ear plugs and it's *still* too loud. I notice my ears ringing when I finish a 30 minute ride at that speed unless I hunch my shoulders (which can get uncomfortable after a while). Found this windscreen recommended/used often on the FZ6 forums (apparently the bike is known for terrible aero and high wind noise).
While this windscreen hasn't made it as quiet as I was hoping, it has certainly helped a great deal. My head is almost never knocked around by the wind now. Added bonus: my gas mileage jumped 10%. Same riding style (moderate, not aggressive), same speeds, same guy.
The next step would be a different helmet, but I went for this first since it's price point was much less than an upgraded helmet. Very happy I did; it's helped quite a bit. I no longer have my ears ringing, and even though sometimes I still hunch my shoulders, I don't have to hold them nearly as high. It's also easier to get in the tuck because I don't have to get as low to get behind the windscreen completely.
Definitely recommended as the first upgrade to this bike.

Definite Improvement Over OEM
I made my 45 minute commute to work this morning with the new windscreen on, and the improvement over the stock screen was very noticeable. My installation yesterday took all of 10 minutes, and the appearance of my 06 CBR was instantly improved. It is a clean design, quite a bit thicker and more rigid than the OEM screen, and stands maybe an 1-1.5 inches taller with a steeper rake.
I'm right at 6' tall, so I did not expect to be completely under the wind while sitting in the "upright" riding position (upright in terms of sport riding). I did notice that I was feeling much less air hitting my chest, but the biggest change was the smoothness of the air traveling around my helmet. I chalk that up to the improved rigidity. This alone made cruising at highway speed much more relaxed. Increasing speed upwards of Imsorryofficer still had me tucking in tight under the screen, but I found that the air pocket was much larger and taller than before, and what air was traveling over my helmet was smoother.
My windscreen came with an attractive powder-coated/laser engraved plate bearing "CBR" that used included adhesive foam to attach to the top of the speedo. The explanation they gave was that it was to keep the plastic on the instrument cluster from melting under lengthy exposure to sunlight that is magnified by the windscreen if exposed from a certain direction. I thought it was cool anyway and stuck it on there.
Overall I am very pleased with the product and would recommend it.

Relatively cheap, easy to install, great product
Purchased the red/black windscreen for a 2012 CBR600. Placed my order on Monday, regular shipping speed, and had it on my doorstep by Friday afternoon, just in time for a Father's Day present! Packaging was fantastic so the screen didn't bang around during shipping.
I read that some had issues with the install. Not the case. I am a gear-minded female, and had the screen installed in less than 10 minutes. It is made perfectly for the bike - no issues with hole placement or fit.
The screen gives the bike a very distinct look while providing more wind deflection than a stock screen. It was easy to put on and relatively inexpensive for the quality. I highly recommend this screen.
