Zero Gravity Sport Touring Windscreen Kawasaki Ninja 650R 2012-2016
Needed more shield....
Bought this for my new to me 2014 Ninja 650 ABS. PO had a short opaque shield on the bike. My other ride is a 1999 Kawasaki Concours so I am used to lots of protection. This Zero Gravity shield will add some wind protection to the Ninja and keeps the sport bike style. Works for me!!!

Looks good so far
I just ordered this windscreen and installed it on my ninja.
It is between 2-3 higher than the stock screen. I have mine set on the lowest settings and it looks like it will offer plenty of coverage. If I set it on the highest setting it would sit between 3-5 inches higher than stock.
The price is fair and is looks good on the bike. I got the clear one.
A couple of things to note is that according to the ZG this is not DOT approved since is made of acrylic and it could/will shatter on impact. It also may melt your dash if left on the sun for long periods of time.
I have not had a chance to test it yet but will post an update once I log some miles on the highway.

Much better than original factory screen.
It is quite a bit of improvement over the stock screen. Wish it was about an inch taller.

A nice looking but practical after market item for your bike.
My bike is a 2014 Kawasaki Ninja 650. As such it is a "sport touring" classified bike with a more upright riding position as opposed to the more crouched riding position in a true sports bike. So keep this in mind with my review....
1. Fit, the Kawasaki OEM windscreen is designed to be moveable and therefore comes off very easily with only metric allen wrenches being required. I had previously set my OEM screen in the highest position. The Zero Gravity fits the OEM bolt/screw pattern perfectly and goes on in less than 15 minutes. Be careful not to lose the washers under the OEM screws!
2. Function, the extra height of the Zero Gravity does a very good job of lessening the wind buffeting and noise. Even in the highest position the OEM screen had the wind hitting me about mid-helmet. The Zero Gravity raises this incidence angle nicely.
3. Form (or looks), Zero Gravity screen looks very good on the bike. I was somewhat nervous that it would look perhaps ungainly with the extra height but it matches the more sporting side of the Ninja well. I ordered the mid-smoke version and it looks quite good IMHO.

Reminds me of the head from the Alien Queen in the movies
1) Blocks a lot of wind
2) Have about 4" of space of my regular position before the wind starts to really beat my head around... if ya know what I mean.
3) Easy to install
4) Looks funky fresh
5) With dark visor not exactly easy to see through

This product is one of a kind
The need for a higher windscreen on a sport bike is essential particularly for those with the touring bars. This is the only product that I could on the net that fulfills my needs. I have not mounted it yet due to the cold weather up north here, but it appears that it will be perfect. Thank you.

Looks great, works wonderfully
Ordered this in Dark Smoke and it looks great. Nice addition. Installed it on the lowest position and the increase in "clean air" on the freeway is substantial and very noticeable. I was going to swap back and forth between this and the stock lower windscreen when not riding longer distances, but I've decided that I'm just going to leave this on all the time.

Very good direct replacement product that works as advertised.
The Zero Gravity Sport Touring Windscreen for my 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 650R worked as advertised as a direct bold. The fitment was perfect, it looks good on the bike and most of all it cuts the wind noise down as expected. Being that the Ninga's seating position is more up right, this windscreen does a very good job of redirecting the air flow above my neck and body. It makes riding at higher speed or on windy days much more enjoyable. I would recommend this to any rider who does not want to lay on the tank to get out of the wind.
