After years of riding a Suzuki I have decided to go straight and got myself A Z800 (2014) love the bike apart from one thing, anything over 70mph and the wind is trying to rip my head off, any of you lot recommend a different screen to reduce this problem, I think Puig and powerbronze do an aftermarket one if any of you have tried them are they any good or is there something else out ther on the market?

I use a kawasaki screen. Always gonna be blasted with wind on a naked. Found my neck muscles learned to cope over time. I avoid motorways coz they dull as fuck and the wind blast is constant. When my speed ramps i tend to naturally hug the tank and the wind blast isnt too bad. Kinda flows up the screen amd smoothly over my helmet
As Dan says mate, that's just the nature of naked bikes. Feeling the wind helps temper your speed I find. I just been riding my mates Sports bike and found without that extra input I was riding.g around d at 150kph without even
realising it. I looked down at the Speedo and got a surprise. You'll get used the the air snacking you in no time. A large screen will destroy the aesthetic s of the bike. But that's a personal preference thing. Great bike though eh mate, glad to have you onboard!!
Thanks for the input I don't think its so much the wind blasting me thats a problem but the small screen on the bike seems to deflect the wind underneath my lid and is trying to rip my lid off my head, I have ordered a Puig screen to see if that helps
Good choice, hope they help with your issues..enjoy the Z
