windshields

Thanks for the "welcome" replies to my first post last weekend.

When I bought my 2014 Versys 650 a few weeks ago, I immediately ordered a Madstad windshield, because they looked like the best ones based on some googling. After using it 3 or 4 weeks, I felt like it was cranking on my fairing with too much weight and vibrating a little too much. So I did some more shopping online, and decided to try the Givi windshield for less than half the price. I put it on today. Haven't ridden with it yet, but it seems more appropriate for this bike. We'll see. Maybe I'll put the Madstad back on for highway trips or something.

I've got the givi only dislike is hand guards hit it when parked with steering locked... Only a tiny bit but still is a OCD trigger for me so I'm back to running the inverted stock one for when around town and givi for longer trips or colder part of the year

yes im a guy.

After reading tons of reviews on all of them, I opted for the Zero Gravity, and have loved every second of it. Less expensive, looks great, works perfectly.

I have no idea how much my Genuine Kawasaki "double/flip" screen cost, but as a 6 footer I can tell you it works great.

lot more options for the newer bikes. not much for the gen 1

I've got a fare bit of bounce from my madstad bracket but I've spotted the cause in a lack of reinforcement in the design. I'll fix that with a little welding soon enough when I add a backet for my ram ball mount.
