- Excellent Product -- But Too Tall for Me for Offroad Review by Marlena
I bought my 2009 G650GS used in May 2014. I'm a "vertically challenged" (i.e. short) rider, so buying a GS and adding the farkles to essentially create a short GSA was my plan. When I ordered this windscreen, I wanted the best buffer I could possibly get for the freeway, since I ride the bike to where I'm going off-road.
The windshield arrived as described, well packaged, and installation was very easy. It's a high quality product, looks very nice, and WOW does it protect me from the wind at ANY speed! I rode from Silicon Valley to Yosemite (~300 miles, round trip) through some notoriously extreme wind areas (we're talking wind turbine farms), with no issues whatsoever.
What didn't work for me, however, was going off-road... the screen got dusty quickly, and even standing I couldn't see through it well enough to avoid ruts and boulders. I ended up having to take it off mid-trail and put in my dry bag. I've discovered my dash lights reflect like a heads-up display at night, too, making visibility an issue for me. If you're never going off-road, this may not be an issue for you, but if you are short, going off-road, or spending a lot of time riding at night I encourage you to mock up the dimensions best you can on your bike, to discover if it will be an issue for you. My remedy is going to be buying one of the two sizes down -- AFTER taking my own advice & mocking up the options! :) (Posted on 4/7/2015)
- VStream® Review by Lee M., Tucson, AZ
I finally got a chance to check out the new Z2413 VStream® Windscreen on my 2009 G650GS. It replaced an 18" Cee Bailey® windscreen. I'm 5'5" tall and the improvement was really noticeable. The air turbulence on my chest disappeared. Also, now there is no airflow pushing on my helmet (front or sides). The ride was more relaxing and much quieter, especially at freeway speeds. With the Z2413 Windscreen, the BMW hand guards, and my homemade hand guard extenders (this might be a new product for ZTechnik), the only air that I felt was on my arms between the elbows and shoulders. Riding at 65+ MPH is definitely more enjoyable now.
Thanks for your help. (Posted on 1/20/2015)
