Zero Gravity Sport Touring Windscreen

Does anybody have one of these? I have searched a lot of places for some dimensions, the best I can find I will attach a screen shot of. Not sure what some of their description means. If you have one, could you measure from the center above the headlights to the top of the screen please and let me know. I get 12.5 inches measuring this way on the stock screen. Is that their 17.13 measurement? This is on a 2011 by the way. Thanks

Mine is 17" from above parking light to top. It is 14" across at widest point measuring across the back side. It is much quieter for me installed more upright as shown on pictures. 3k miles with no problems. Like it a lot. Mine is a 2012.

Thanks E327! Glad to hear the tip about mounting it more upright. I did eventually find a size chart for all their windscreens. If anybody needs it you can go to the Zero Gravity web site and look for "Windscreen Spec Sheet". I plan to order the Sport Touring model(their tallest) for my V early next week. Today I will be taking a run at higher speeds for some distance so will judge buffeting and then compare when I get the new screen and keep you posted. Happy New Year everybody!

I'm looking over the windscreen so it's no problem. If I had to look through it I believe I would prefer a clear screen. I got the smoke tinted because I think it matches my bike better – just for looks.

Fast Eddie – I believe his bike is a 2011 which would indicate your windshield would not fit on his.

Perhaps, but I drilled holes thru it to mount it, as it is, so --- what's a few more holes...?

Cleaning up the desktop of the computer and found the spec sheet for the Zero Gravity windscreens - all models. I hope it shows up OK when I hit submit. Fast Eddie - thanks I will take a good look at yours when we have lunch together.

Checking in one more time. I opted for the Zero Gravity Sport Touring windshield with smoke tint. The two pictures were an attempt to show my view from the stock windshield, then from the new one. I think having taken the pics in the garage overdoes how high the new one is. But, it is 4 inches taller than stock. I have it in the most upright position right now. I am happy with the new one. Have done a couple outings of like 45 miles at 65 mph and today hit the interstate for a short distance at 75 mph. I do feel like my helmet is getting less air pressure. I did still feel some buffeting of my arms at 75. When the temps are warmer and I want to get more air on my chest I will move it to the higher position which opens some air movement from in just above the headlights. Easy install, about 10 minutes total. As somebody said elsewhere, you do get some shaking of the windshield at speed, but it does not bother me. Being tall, I am looking down the road over the top of it most of the time, but also no problem seeing through it here in daylight. Hope this helps anybody wanting a little more wind protection without a huge expense (I think I paid $76 in the door).
