Zero Gravity Sport Touring Windscreen Honda VFR800 2002-2010
Initially skeptical, now extremely happy!
Recently purchased this windscreen as an upgrade to the stock one on my '04 VFR800. Installation was simple and took about 20 minutes start - finish. This windscreen is noticeably thinner than the stock one. Riding experience is definitely improved & I accomplished everything I was hoping for in that regard. It's given me a taller pocket to ride in and took the wind from my upper chest & shoulders to my visor. Wind noise has increased slightly but I usually commute on the highway with ear plugs so it's not an issue. Too early to speak to the durability but overall, very happy with the purchase so far.

Great windscreen for taller riders.
Purchased this windscreen for my 02 VFR800 to see if I could get the turbulent air off my chest when riding on the highway. I stand about 6'3" and the factory windscreen left something to be desired when it came to deflecting the wind high enough to get around/over my chest. This screen is only about 3" taller than stock, but it moves the flow of air up considerably higher. The felt push of wind from the middle of my chest was moved up to about the forehead area of the helmet which really improved riding comfort at highway speeds or on when riding into a head wind. If you are a taller rider I highly recommend this screen.

Only two mounting points, not four
Ordered to mount on my 2006 VFR800 but screen has only two mounting eyes to slide over the tiny screws high up in the frame and no means of connecting it properly with the two more sturdy bolts deeper in the frame ; does not fit nicely behind the plastic covers on the inside of the fairing. Why not use the original four point like Givi or Puig do? Not for me, mickey mouse.

Effectively re-routes air flow.
This windscreen is very simple to install and fits perfectly. It is more effective at lower speeds, reducing air flow and noise. At higher speeds air flow is noticeably moved off the chest, but wind and noise to head/face is still considerable.

Does a great job, but not a true sport touring shield
In general, it does reduce wind drag on the body and somewhat on the helmet...but, I was expecting more wind reduction. I am 5'10, 160 lbs. It looks awesome though! If you are willing to crouch or tuck at all, then it is easy to completely eliminate wind drag. Overall, it is a great windshield that is worth the money, but do not expect it to provide wind protection similar to a true sport touring bike/winshield.

Light, easy to install, and looks good
This windscreen adds about 3" over the stock Honda screen and puts the wind right about visor level for me (5'-7"). At 3/4 tuck, the ride is smooth and quiet, but don't expect gusts from the sides to disappear. The acrylic material is thinner than stock and feels a bit flimsy, so don't beat on it. Focal quality is good, not as clear as they say, with some distortion in the middle of the screen.
Installation was a breeze, and takes about 5-10 minutes. The windscreen fits the bike well and maintains an OEM look.

3 years of use
True confession, I bought my bike used with this windscreen already installed. I have a 2002 Honda VFR800 (Interceptor). This screen does a good job for most conditions, except cross-winds where I get some helmet buffeting. It looks like ti belongs on the bike. Over the past 3 riding seasons, I've covered 10 states in the midsection of the country and about 20,000 miles. I've had no reason to try anything else.
