Anyone want to loan their CBR250R to Zero Gravity so they can design some bigger windscreens for us?

Thanks for the suggestion. This may be a bit overkill for a 250 but we'll take it into consideration. We can make the screen that will fit the complex mounting system. That should be no problem. The problem is getting a bike in our shop we can take apart. We can't do that with a brand new bike we get from the dealer. We're waiting for a customer to step up and let us use his bike for a couple of weeks....

We've finished our prototypes and are waiting to find a customer who will loan us his bike for a couple of weeks so we can do fit testing and shaping the screen to the body lines. It's been difficult finding such a person. I'll make sure you're on the list of people we contact when we have them finished. Sorry for the wait....ZG

Hi Glenn,
I'm posting this message on the CBR250 Forum, so your search will be easier.
I suppose your research center is in the US, I am not so it is even more difficult for me to loan you my bike from Italy.
Anyway, on the forum there are many many owners from US-Canada and I really think someone will be glad to cooperate
with you. Zero Gravity has a great name!
Just grant them one screen for free when the task is completed!

Thanks again,
Mario
They still look for someone.
Come on guys! It's for the science!!!

I would do it. I'm only like 30-40 minutes from camarillo.

I find it interesting that the guys who are supposed to be the big dogs when it comes to wind screens are so far behind the power curve. I can think of three maybe even four companies that already offer a replacement for us. It sounds like they offer a great product but I wonder what there hook will be to beat those on the market who already has product out there. I am picking my puig from the post office tomorrow about 60ish shipped (IIRC) I wonder if they could of beat that price.

Got an email back from the guy over at ZG, Glenn. I guess they found a guy (not me :'( aww shucks!). Soo I guess we'll see how long it takes them to come out with a screen.

I too am confused about that. I'll probably end up going with the puig unless zg can beat the price...

Would there really be a massive difference in price? I love my Puig, just not the install... Was easy with the DIY guide, just unnerving pulling the whole dash and headlight off the bike.

Most of the Zero Gravity wind screens are in the $70-90 range. They may offer a slightly better thought out aerodynamic design and usually have 2 increased heights to choose from but I expect the complex screen for the CBR250R will have to cost more than the others.

I just had an idea to help deal with the complex wind screen shape of the 2011 CBR250R. Zero Gravity could cast up an adapter that would bolt on to the stock mounting points in the cowl and then accept a simple bolt on version of various screens from there. I also wonder about making the screen stand off so it could have a simple height adjustable system as on the Ninja650. The CBR250R is going to be a huge seller world wide and in the US with future total sales in the 100,000's.
