Zero Gravity Sport Touring Windscreen Kawasaki KLR650 2008-2014
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.

Great product for the price.
I got this for a 2013 KLR650. The solid black looks great and it works much better than the stock one. Vibrates a little but overall I'm happy with it.

Great alternative to OEM
Quality materials and great fit but lacks in the area of wind deflection depending on your height and or center of gravity. But yet far better then factory windscreen with out a doubt. I soon plan to purchase a sargent or corbin seat with lower seat height for my KLR with more of hope for a better center of gravity since i am not so much opposed by the look of other large wind screens for the KLR. other then that it is a nice upgrade and should be well considered when owning a KLR for a more enjoyable ride.

Good fit, better wind protection
This product works as advertised. It fit my KLR, which I use daily for a 125 mile round trip commute, and it has made a big difference in wind protection over the stock shield. The only drawback is that my master cylinder hits the shield at full lock, but the shield is flexible enough that this does no damage, and it does not prevent me from a full-lock turn. I should also mention that I have risers on my bars. I don't think this would occur with stock bar height. Revzilla, as always, got this to me on time and in great shape.

This is a great windscreen but by design is very flexible so there is a bit of shaking with the wind at higher speed. The shape is great and with a set of risers it throws the wind JUST over my head (5'11") without looking rediculous at the same time. I finished a ride and the whole bike was plastered in bugs and I didn't have a single one on my head. Without the risers it probably wouldn't be as functional for me.
