Ztechnik Shield

Hi Guys,

thought I would share a positive experience with mototoys.com.au
I recently received my new ztechnik shield and it is absolutely amazing compared to the stock. The guys at mototoys shipped it super fast and they were a breeze to deal with

Re: Ztechnik Shield

Eric I have never had any buzzing wih mine its great, but then I dont very often travel over 100kph, probably dont even take the rpm over 4000rpm just the way it is here, loss of license for speeding comes very easy at 30k's over the limit we loose our vehicle and our license
different topic we now also have "hoon laws"... they pertain to observed road behaviour, loose the rear end for any reason and vechicle is confiscated after 3 times it is crushed annnnd you can also be dobbed in by the public.

Re: Ztechnik Shield

Had mine for a few years now also..... love it.
When the bike went over on our trip (up near Broome) the mount holding the windscreen arm pivot broke, but there wasn't a scratch on the Z-technik screen which had dug into the ground on its edge! It just flexed and didn't snap, but the mounting point gave way. Go figure....

Re: Ztechnik Shield

Has anyone compared an Aeroflow to a Ztechnik on the same bike or ridden behind both on different bikes?

Re: Ztechnik Shield

thats a question probably better asked in the main forum... rather than down here. Don't recall anyone in Oz ever mentioning an Aeroflow shield.

Re: Ztechnik Shield

I have had the Ztechnik shield on my R1200RT for nearly 2 years now.

Much better protection against the elements than the stock shield. So much so, that I take the Ztechnik shield off during the summer, so I can get some airflow by using the stock shield.

I have purchased several items from Mototoys - and their customer service has been excellent!


Cheers,

Tony

Re: Ztechnik Shield

The shield is great because I can move it up about an inch and I get 0 buffeting. I am 6'2 and I still like a bit of breeze in the face but don't like to get hammered. I don't think I will move it up or down for a long time.... I know it's new shield but the clarity is great too!
