Zero Gravity Sport Touring Windscreen Kawasaki ZX14R 2006-2014
Not that impressed with this screen
visually i do not like this windscreen when installed. It sits too high.
There is a defect in the screen that causes distortion about the size of a rain drop, but it is in an inconvenient spot.
Although it blocks the initial wind, there is a turbulence created behind the shield that is as or more annoying than the stock.
I think the puig racing screen will be the next one i get.
Product came quickly and in good condition. Revzilla is great.

Great for every day riding
This screen is quality materials and the fit was spot on. This screen is on an 04 ZRX1200 in south Texas. It blocks just enough wind to prevent helmet buffeting, but I still get plenty of air for ventilation. I'm 5'9" and this screen is good to 80mph without tucking. It makes city highway travel easier.

May not look cool, but works great.
Many times we look for accessories to make our bikes look even more aggressive and compliment the lines on our bike. This windscreen does not necessarily do that. At least not for my ZX14R. However, what this windscreen DOES do well is block the cold wind from my upper torso and directs it right over my helmet. I am 6'2", 200lbs and this works great for allowing me to sit upright and the wind goes over my head. I do not get any buffeting or head shake at all. I can hear my helmet speakers better now as well. My rides consist of speeds consistently around 70-80 MPH in very open areas on my commutes of 80 miles round trip. In the warmer weather I will probably go with a double bubble or stock because the wind will actually keep me cooler during those months. I have ridden as low as 29 degrees and the only air I felt was outside the areas of wind screen. Definitely helps extend my riding season along with the proper gear.

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.

I ordered one of these from Revzilla after doing a lot of research and I couldn't be happier with it. I ride a GSX1250FA and am 5'10". With the stock windscreen in place, the airflow hits me mid-chest level and highway riding isn't always smooth. Now that the ZG Sport Touring windscreen is installed, the airflow hits the top of my shoulders and the ride is as relaxing as it should be. I don't feel any buffeting on my helmet as others have reported, but then again I use a RF1100 helmet which may take care of that issue. Finally, I still get some decent airflow to keep my cool when using my mesh jacket too.
Overall, I highly recommend this windscreen. Makes highway riding much smoother.

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.

Good fit quality. The clear shield needs the bottom painted though!
While this windshield is a good buy, and the fit is great... Zero Gravity should send you the 6 rubber/steel nuts instead of making you try to remove the ones from your old windscreen. If ordering the clear screen please note that at the bottom, it is NOT tinted at all, and you will see the wires and back of your instrument cluster unless you paint or tint the screen yourself. While not a real big deal, these two things make a great product just a "good" product. If ZG reads this, please consider making this a "no muss or fuss" installation by making it a complete unit and tinting the bottom of the screen like the OEM screen is so you don't have to see the ugly wires and stuff.
