Anyone try this windscreen?

As the title says Iím looking for a windshield for my bike I have risen it on the hwy several times so far and the wind is just crazy and I was looking for something to make it a bit more bare able. I donít want to ruin the look of the bike by putting some crazy big screen on it. I love how it looks but I feel like I need something. I found this one on eBay and it seems to be the best suited one I can find for it I wasnít sure if anyone else here has used it or not

It appears similar to the PUIG I used to have. They really look great on this bike, but I found out that mine didn't do much for windage at all. I sold it because I am not that interested in appearances and purchased a Spitfire which works much better, but admittedly, doesn't look so great!

As Pied said it looks similar to the PUIG which I use & actually like. For me it seems to take wind pressure off the torso area. It works for what it is. Seems about as pricy as the one you have pictured. Photo below. It mounts very cleanly.

Cool as long as it takes it off my torso is what Iím looking for head is not a big issue. And that is in Canadian funds so itís not a terrible price and I like the corrugated look it has. I find it fits the angular look of the bike really well

Try a cheap adjustable one

I got a cheap adjustable from ebay for ~$20. Angle, height etc. are adjustable and it does make a difference at higher speed. The mounting is good quality but the screen itself had some scratches. Since its below the line of sight, its functionally not a problem.

I cant post links, but the item title on ebay was "Adjustable Motorbike Windscreen Wind Deflector Windshield for Kawasaki Honda KTM". There are many identical variants.

I have the Puig, which I have no use for since I sold my red 2014 CB500FA a couple of year ago. I'm in the Vancouver, B.C. area. Let me know if you are interested.

Oh My Gosh, Stewbie!! I thought that we had lost you forever! How have you been keeping, my fellow Canuck? I'm still a little sad that you sold your beautiful bike and left our forum, but hey, it's great to see you on here again. So I have to ask... don't you miss riding?

Not a direct answer to your question but since it's related I'm just mentioning that the Puig CB500F-specific screen for recent (2016 on) models is NOT like this one (the style I wanted), it's flat-ish and squarish with "bat ears". And most of all it's TINY! The marketing pictures showed it looking a decent size against the bike, but in reality when put in position it barely cleared my handlebars! An immediate return. So if anyone is looking at this forum for information on good, wind blocking screens, I wouldn't recommend the current model Puig.
