Zero Gravity has now released a new selection of windscreens for the
V-Strom, woohoo! The Sport Touring model looks like it might do the trick but who knows till it's tried.

ZG Screen

I like the look and tried to buy one from pipecity (a ZG dist.) and they said they were not available. Hmmmmm

BTW two bros pipes at pipecity are $ 485 !! no shipping costs.

Didn't see any dimensions on the ZG site. Any idea how much taller the sport touring shield is compared to stock?

I'd be interested to find out if the taller touring windshield works well for us 6-footers. That's one damn fine looking screen!

ZG Touring screen

I have had the zg touring screen installed since December. I feel it is an improvement over stock, especially above 70 mph or so; it gets the wind off of your chest and at that speed to the top of your helmet - I am 6'1" and sitting on a sheepskin/foam pad so a little above stock seat height. However it is not perfect as the wind still hits the sides of your helmet.

The screen is about 3 to 3 1/2 inches taller than stock - looked taller than that in the pictures - nicely made, installs easy and improves the look of the bike.

I had one, but hated it. I sent it back and ZG said there would be no restocking fee, as they had quite a few returned due to noise/buffeting. I got the ZG double bubble instead and I like this one, not perfect but a little better, but looks wonderful.

Just got back from a 100 mile ride with the double bubble on my 03 DL1000. All in all I was happy with it. It feels more like the wind you get on a sport bike. Only rare buffeting. Otherwise a fairly steady uniform wind stream. So for me who is 6'2'' 180 with 35 inch inseam:
1.OEM not very good. tried it once
2.OEM tall. Better but still a lot of buffeting
3. Cee Bailey tall. Got it very tall. By far the best wind protection. Very quiet. Looking through the screen. Good optics but got in some fog and condensate built up in line of sight. Huge downside as my vision through the screen was horrible. If I was doing a cross country ride this screen would be my choice but I would have to treat it with something to avoid the condensation problem.
4. Double bubble. By far the prettiest screen. Normal airflow past helmet without the buffeting. The one I will use most of the time. Still noisy so earplugs are a must.

thanks for a thorough post.
Just for the record, what "tall" [how many inches] is your CB, and do you ride it on the lowest Yoke position? [or is that a fixed on your 1K bike?]

still searching for options

If evolution is valid, why do I still bite my tongue occasionally?
