    no, it's only aesthetic purpose... I've got a Triple Black version of my F800gs... so I prefer the smoked version.
    You can see trough it without problem, because it's no very dark

    The wind goes over my head, so I don't feel any turbulence. There is some wind noise but I think it is a combination of wind tumbling off my shoulders and the noise that my modular helmet (Shoei) generates.

    The Barkbusters just touch the screen at full lock.....I decided not to worry about it.

    @Lokey

    One more question: Did you also test the larger ZTechnik and if do why did you choose medium size?

    Interesting fact: with ZTechnik's "Ride & Buy" program the dealer orders & buys the windshield from ZTechnik. If you don't buy it after riding it your dealer is stuck with it. FYI

    I just ordered it and prayed. I have found that I don't like looking through a windshield while riding and even worse is having the top of the shield at eye level.

    The flow of wind at speed is such that it will go over your head if the top is about level with your chin. I have cut many windshields down and could have done it with this one if it was too high, but as it turned out it is in the right spot.

    Note that after this picture was taken I installed an Altrider skid plate.

    Great input, many thanks! My last question is how these screens work while standing? When up on the pegs, does the rider still have distance and room to stay off it? The reviews, so far, are great for on the road - or off pavement while seated... How's the fit while standing? Given the postings to date, I think I can find one I'll like on the road - I worry about the jeep trails... Tinting on a taller screens seems like it could be an issue off pavement as well, I like to see what the tire is about to run over. A gray tint seems like it would work OK though. Input on that would be great as well. Thanks!

    Hi,

    Is there anyone using the ZTechnik F800GS VStream Windshield?
    I'm looking for an alternative to the original windscreen to minimize the noise at speeds from 65mph and above.

    With the oiginal windscreen the wind hits me right below my chin (I'm about 5' 11" height) producing a lot of noise inside my helmet...

    Greetings from Brazil

    After reading this thread (and there's a lot), I have finally decided on one. Maybe not THE BEST, but appears to be a good combo of touring without the barndoor effect and is off-road ready.
    I don't mind minimal protection, but hate buffeting. I tried the smaller F650GS(twin) screen. Didn't like it either. I'm taking a trip with lots of miles and wanted something that won't make my eyeballs vibrate.

    This unit looks to be the same as the Powerbronze. There are a couple of outfit's marketing he same screen. Of which one is Twalcom.
    Thin and kind-of flimsy seems to be the only knock on them. I'll give a better report once it comes in and I put a few miles on it.

    Twalcom

    On my 650GS I have tried an aeroflow, ztech, calsci, cee baileys and a madstad as well as the stock short BMW screen with a laminar lip on it. My personal choice is the madstad, quiet and with the supplied winglets great all weather protection. It can be removed in seconds if your headed off road, or with two wrenches it can be left on the bike but lowered completely out of the way. Want even more on road weather protection, add aeroflow hand guards, duct deflectors and leg guards. Now you have a true all weather tourer but all that weather protection (except for the hand guards) can be removed in less then five min so you can play in th dirt when you reach your destination.

    So if I'm reading what you wrote correctly, then at my size (5' 9" 30-31" inseam) the small Ztechnik (V Stream) touring screen might be a better choice than the medium you are using. Or do you think the medium would still not end up in my line of sight?

    I really like the look of the dark smoked sport version but at only 12" I suspect it will not provide any better protection than the short one already on my F658.

    Also, did you need the mirror extenders they recommend so the mirrors do not hit the screen?
