New Ztechnic Windscreen

For those that are interested, I installed and tested my new Ztechnic
Z2464 Tall Windscreen.

I must say it was a great improvement. The buffeting from tractor trailers
was much improved and especially so from the backseat rider.
My wife was getting beat up from the stock screen.

The clarity was excellent, with some reflection from the handle bars
with the bright sun light.

At 90+ mph the bike completely stable and calm.

In the lowest position I must sit erect to see over the top, the angle of the
screen is more upright than the stock or at least seems so.

We both wear Arai full face helmets and the intercom wind noise was almost completely
gone. Much quieter than with the stock windscreen.

I'm 5'9 and my wife is 5'4.

Again these are my observations and would definitely recommend this wind screen.

Re: New Ztechnic Windscreen

Brent,

I replaced my windshield for the Cal-Sci several months ago and found that it reduced the back pressure by probably 95%. Did you get the same result from the Ztechnic?

Dano: How much did the Sci windscreen do for windnoise for you? I'm considering the same when I get the GTL.

Hi Dan,

I didn't feel much back pressure from the stock screen
and the Ztechnic is much better.
