I recentl purchased an ebay dark smoke windscreen. It sucks. It doesn't fit right. It fits but doesn't sit flush with the fairing, and the taps just above the mirror don't line up at all.

I then decided to compare it to the OEM windscreen. I noticed that the OEM piece had beveled edges all the way around to allow it to sit flush with the fairng and slide into the hooks at the top.

I really like the potential that the dark screen has in comparison to the OEM clear one. I am now looking into getting either a Puid or Zero Gravity.

I'm not sure if I want a double bubble or not, as it seems the only advantage that gives is less air on the helmet which doesn't really bother me that much. The OEM style and DB both look sick, so that doesn't matter either.

Please throw out any opinions on the styles, fits, and performance the different options I have.

I have to take pictures of the screen tonight for the ebay seller, so I will get them on here as well.

Thank you In advance!

well...whichever thread you're going to look at, i have a zero gravity on mine. I absolutely love it. They also have awesome customer service. I'm on my second screen...The first one i was messin around in the garage and i snapped the corner off my first one and when i called them to ask if there was anything to be done since i was the one who broke it they said they would sell me one for 50% off and send it free. It fits great as well...

I have a ZG double bubble. I replaced the one that came with the bike after hitting a truck and breaking it. I really like it. Not hard to install and it looks good. Haven't had any experience with other brands, so I can't compare.

I think the Puig DB looks much better than the ZeroGravity. The puig even comes with a small R6 logo stamped on the lower front part of it. Fits absolutely perfect. very very durable as well

I have a Zero Gravity dark smoke on my R6 and I love it. It fit on the bike perfect, unlike some lower quality screens like Hot Bodies.

I bought a cheap one off of ebay, what a wasted, couldn't even get it on correctly, not flush with the faring. How hard is it to install these name brand ones, did you guys do it yourself or have someone do it, those little rubber screws are a pain in the ass lol

The rubber screws really arent that bad. Line them up and twist them in from the BOTTOM.

Let this thread be a warning to everyone that the ebay windscreens do suck, and that Puig and Zero Gravity are the way to go!

are you guys taking the front off or just the screen, i just took the screen off and had a hard time even putting the stock one back on, maybe i'm just not mechanically inclined. BTW anyone in the atlanta, ga area, i'm stationed here at ft mcpherson. Its pretty nice weather here for riding huh

You should only need to take the windscreen and mirrors off. Then you should be able to slide the replacement of OEM replacement in for a perfect fit.
