Zero Gravity Sport Touring Windscreen Kawasaki KLR650 2008-2014
Solid product, a little short to shield wind from helmet.
Solid product, a little short to shield wind from helmet. An inch or so taller would make a big difference.

Nice Product but!
Really do like this windshield. Not to much to install it but would caution if you notice on your factory windshield the back of it has a vinyl decal on the back covering the back of the instrument cluster. This shield does not and even though it is smoked the white plastic gauges show through..... Easy fix tap a nice straight line across it and use flat or high heat black paint and paint the lower half of back side of windshield. Looks factory.....just thought it would be this way out of box. Not a deal breaker. As far as functionality moves the air about another 4-6 inches up at 70 mph over factory shield.

not for the taller rider
i can see how this would be a great product for a smaller rider, but i'm 6'4" and the wind hits me square in the helmet. it is significantly better than the stock windscreen and i'm sure with something like the happy trails ralleye kit the wind will pass right over me

Couldn't ask for a better windshield. I'm 6'5 and wanted a taller shield and this is perfect it's not too tall not too short. And really like the fact it's tinted. I would definitely recommend it.

Works well on KLR650 with dash risers.
I have combined the sport touring windshield with the KLRdash risers only. This setup is better than the stock screen, and way better than no screen. I have not tried this windscreen without the dash risers. I am 5-11" w/33" inseam. My bike is a 2013 klr650 with rear shock set to 5. I also have a sargeant seat low profile on the bike(this made the windscreen more affective). I purchased the light smoke, which is dark but you can see thru it. I commute, mostly highway, all year long, and in all weather. The sport touring screen helps a lot with rain, wind, bugs, and cold weather. I did experience some wind slapping on the top of my shoei qwest helmet before I switched to the Sargeant seat low.

World of difference, KLR 650
Bought a Zero Gravity based on a friends recommendation. Installed this on a KLR 650 (2013) from the stock windscreen. Hardware is not included, that is the only problem. Use the hardware from your OEM windscreen, and badabing badaboo! You'll have yourself great wind protection! The KLR is still very manageable at 85 MPH with this screen. Definitely a great buy!

Great windscreen for the KLR
I have the sport touring screen paired with the Happy Trails Rallye kit and it is a great combination for my 6'2 self with 34" inseam. The combo pushes the air right over my helmet with no buffetting. Make sure you choose the light smoke version or clear. The dark smoke version is very hard to see through and will limit your vision of the road directly infront of you.

Excellent Looking Windscreen, Poor Protection on Highway
I purchased the Zero Gravity Sport Touring Windscreen (dark smoke version) for my 2013 Kawasaki KLR650. (It replaced the stock windscreen on my KLR.) I really wanted the ZGST to block the wind at eye level and below, but alas it does not. I am 5’ 9” and I still have the stock seat installed and the wind hits me directly at eye level. Granted this is much better than the stock windscreen because the wind would hit me mid-chest. (Makes for a cold neck in the Northern New Mexico Winter.) For this ZGST windscreen to achieve its truest potential on the highway I will have to purchase a windscreen riser. (One available through the KLRdash website.)
All that said, this dark smoke windscreen looks mean on my all black KLR650. Hope this helps.
