Kawasaki Accessories Larger Windscreen

I'm a newer owner and have been looking into different windshield options for cooler weather and longer trips. I've read a lot on the forum about the Givi, Mikes, etc, but I haven't seen anything on here about the Kawasaki windshield listed in their catalog. I like the looks of it, but I'm unsure of what kind of performance I could expect out of it with it only being a few inches larger around with no lip or anything. I'm checking because I may have the chance to get one for free, or at least drastically reduced at my dealer when my buddy buys a new Vulcan 900. Thanks for the help guys! I'm loving the wealth of info here on the forum!

Free is good, if you buy one, get the Givi, its excellent.

If it's free or drastically reduced, nothing to lose by giving it a try. If it doesn't work for you, sell it and be out nothing.

I bought the OEM large and tinted windscreen for my 09 V. It was not worth the money. I since tried the Givi Touring screen, MikeShield touring, and CalSci medium screen. They are all ok, but I like the CalSci screen the best, and it's what I use now. The CalSci screen makes the bike a much better ride. I'd rather pay for the CalSci than try to use the OEM screen, even if it's free.

Thanks for the input guys. I figured that was the case since there wasn't a lot of info on here regarding that shield. I didn't want to waste my free stuff on something that would be a waste. I'd rather get a mini-tankbag, or even just oil and a filter instead of something thats not even worth the effort. I do like the Givi a lot - good reviews, looks good, not too expensive, but I haven't really looked a lot into the CalSci, so I'll check that out. Thanks again.
