    Nice!

    Any plans of releasing the Z2473 screen in clear plastic?

    I will forward the request to National Cycle, as with the last few releases, they have simplified their line up; dark smoke for low/sport shields, light tint for mid/sport touring shields, and clear for tall/touring.

    Thanks,

    I just bought a 2015 F700GS and I'm almost certain the tiny stock windscreen won't do it for me. Anyone know which of these two aftermarket windscreens would be more effective in terms of cutting the turbulence? I'm looking at the: National Cycle Ztechnik Z2473 and the MRA X-Creen sport windshield? I will have the low seat and I'm 5'6" tall with a 30" inseam.
    I would also appreciate any feedback on the quality of either one of these screens I Nederland that the Z2473 maybe be thicker and not shake as much as the MRA?

    I will be honest, I haven't spent time on each motorcycle with each windshield installed, but feedback from our customers shows that the Vstream shields work incredibly well on just about every motorcycle they support; They simply have a formula that works. Plus, as you mentioned, the thickness and quality of the shield makes for a very solid and OEM like fitment.

    The MRA x-creen shields have also been very popular, with a lot of great feedback regarding the x-creen add-on spoilers. I do not thing you'll have any vibration/shaking issues with the sport shield.

    I hope this helps, but we'll leave the rest to others with first hand, long term experience on their bikes.

    Thanks,

    One thing to be aware of is that adding a spoiler on top of the windshield may put too much stress on the mounts - especially on the Z2473 which only uses the four stock mounting points.

    The taller Z2474 and Z2475 include structural side supports, which would be much better if you would want to add a spoiler on. Plus, these are taller to begin with. F800 Depot will be able to get you any of them.

    Thanks!
