Touring Windscreen - TYGA/Zero Gravity

Hey guys,

I was looking at purchasing a touring screen as the wind gets rather annoying after a while and have so far found the following:

TYGA - Tyga Performance - Screen, Touring, Dark Tint, OEM Honda, 2011 CBR125/150/250R - Screens

Zero Gravity - Windscreen Innovators - Zero Gravity

The price difference is like $10 (not sure about shipping yet) and I was just looking for any comparison that someone may have for these.

The ZG screen requires a full removal of the OEM screen and replacement, while the TYGA is a straight bolt on through the mirrors.

Any feedback is highly appreciated.

I've got the Tyga windscreen and really like it. It bends the wind about neck high for me and I pretty much ride almost straight up, at 6'. I've not tried removing the fairing parts, there are others that have done it for aftermarket tinted screens. Do a search on the forum, I believe someone has even done a step by step thread. The Tyga is very easy to switch out, if you are as mechanically oriented as I am, I hate wrenches and things of that ilk.
Shipping was high, but quick, considering it came from Thailand, I think $40, if I were to somehow break the one I've got, I'd re-order another.

Zero Gravity

To my understanding Zero Gravity is still not shipping the tinted windscreen. I purchased the Zero Gravity touring windscreen in clear and love the way it deflects the air. I and 6' and sit straight to hunched on the bike.



By the way I am very mechanically inclined and was able to install the windshield without assistance in about an hour and a half. But if you take your time and remember how you took the bike apart it is not a hard process at all.

^ how do you like it so far? I'm thinking about ordering a tinted one. While tucked, can you see over it or are you looking right through it now?

When I am tucked I see right over the windscreen. BTW I love the windscreen. I was having neck problems from the turbulence hitting my helmet and that has cleared up with the new windscreen. I may one day buying a tinted screen to replace but I could not wait since the bike is my mode of transportation to and from work (100 miles round trip)

Thanks guys I really appreciate the quick responses. Doktor do you have a pic of the screen on the bike? I prefer the direct bolt on simply due to simplicity of install but I'd like to see how the thing will look on a real bike (not on the mfg's website).

Might be something I'll do during the winter so as not to lose any riding time!

I apologize for the delay.
My wife was recently diagnosed with multiple myeloma, and this is the first time that I've been able to have a few minutes just for me. Please forgive the quality of the picture, I took it with my phone and sent it to myself.
Don't judge my attention to a web forum as being selfish, as a health care provider, I've been very much involved with her treatment, she has already received her first dose of chemotherapy, with none of the often thought of symptoms. She broke her hip, which is how the diagnosis was made during the surgery to correct that fracture. Her course of treatment is, in part, going to involve several weeks of residential rehabilitation, which she is currently under going.
I would appreciate your thoughts and prayers as we progress through this treatment.

The Tugs windscreen won't be a winter project, more like a coffee break. About 10 minutes on or off.

Doktor, thanks very much for the response I highly appreciate it. I actually purchased one from Thailand also and am now awaiting it in eager anticipation!
I wish your wife all the best during this time as I'm sure it's a very difficult time.
