Puig Rafale Universal Windscreen
Works pretty well
I have a 2013 Suzuki Gladius, which is a naked bike, I never really put too much thought into needing a until I moved from Virginia to Seattle and realized that you pretty much have to use the highways to get anywhere. Before I installed the windscreen it felt like I was going to get blown off of the bike when approaching high speeds. After installing the windscreen I feel the wind a little on my head, but I no longer feel like I'm riding with a parachute attached to my body. It helps a great deal, I have no problem getting up to speed. Beware though, the instructions are horrible, worse than IKEA. The windscreen comes assembled, so you have to disassemble it and put it back together on the bike. Start with the mounting brackets on the handlebars, attach the arms, then attach the windscreen. I don't particularly like the looks of the windscreen, I wish it was a little more streamline with the bike, but it doesn't look horrible, and the benefit far outweighs riding against the wind.

2006 fz6 naked
I installed this a few weeks ago and have adjusted it to get it to just the right spot it blocks the wind well took about 10 minutes to install without any frustration. I wish I had ordered the smoked or clear because all black seems just to make it look too big. Does a pretty good job for blocking wind considering its size.

Excellent product I would recommend Puig products to anyone
I have purchased windscreens from Puig for my R1 and now I purchased the Puig Rafale universal windscreen for my 2002 Naked Yamaha FZ1 and you can't ask for a better deal both in Quality and style. Puig is the best.

Does the job.
I chose the CTX700 naked over the faired model for styling reasons. With wind posing more of a problem than I originally thought, I needed to add a windscreen, but I didn't want to kill the styling either. Not finding tasteful alternatives and not wanting to wait for Puig's model specific offering either, I decided to go ahead with the universal Rafale.
Totally pleased! I also ordered the necessary hardware for the larger diameter bar on my bike, and installation was easy. The trick is to loosen everything, get it into position and tighten a little at a time. An extra set of hands is not necessary, but will help.
Test ride. First an unexpected result, the windscreen reflects the dashboard. At night, I had to reduce the brightness. But it also reflects the indicator lights at all times, which could be a benefit to make me more aware when I leave high beams or turn signals on or when not in neutral. Anyway, something worth noting.
The expected functionality is there. The wind no longer hits me square in the chest and now only buffets my shoulders, leaving only my head exposed. Of course, results will vary depending on seat and rider height as well as motorcycle application. Point is, wind resistance is greatly diminished while styling is retained.
Would not hesitate to recommend. Great job Puig! Thank you Revzilla!

PUIG Instal 2006 FZ6
Needed a good looking and functional windscreen for my 2006 FZ6. After a thorough internet search and deciding that I wanted to purchase from a reputable online vendor such as Revrilla, I decided on this universal windshield. The shipping time was good 5-7 days and free! The package was in good condition and the item arrived in excellent condition as it should. Installation instructions included with pictures and the adjust-ability of the positioning of the windshield mounting hardware make this a great windshield for just about any bike.
Overall I am happy with this purchase and value of the windshield. A+

Does what it's supposed to do for a good price.
I bought a naked bike thinking I'd enjoy a little extra wind. I was wrong. I felt the discomfort on my long commute to work over a high wind area every day. Lucky for me Puig makes windshields for my Honda CB500F . Put this windshield on, made my life much better. Great wind protection and doesn't look half bad. Worth the money. Just be careful that you are using a towel to cover any plastic that may come into contact with the windshield. It will scratch. Word to the wise. Enjoy the wind protection.

Easy to install, it fits my Honda CTX700N
Good quality product, easy to install, although the screws that attached to the handle bar were too small for my handle bar, it was easy to find longer screws at the hardware store to complete the assembly.
