I can get out of it completely if needed just by lowering my head a bit. I'm 6'1, btw. It may not be the perfect screen for you with your additional 2" of height.
    Yes, these 2'' of height are just doubtful now. Is it different at lower speeds such as 50 to 75mph? I am mostly driving in this range on regional roads, and 75mph is just a peak speed, not so constant speed - I only use highway if I am running out od timeat night, when tired of all turns and curved roads

    Re: FZ6 Windscreen Poll

    Like I said, really doesn't buffet my head around, even at speeds of 70-80. It's just LOUDER; with ear plugs in I'm very happy with it. Maybe it's because of the double bubble profile spreading the draft differently, I don't know.

    OK, thank you for help. I think I will order this Puig racing screen and when it won't work for my height, I have a backup plan to exchange it with someone owning any other touring screen :P

    Hello,

    today I received my Puig racing screen, and now I don't know if it is well made or it is semifinished product. I am missing some details according to original screen.

    - The plastic is not bended at the screews position as on the original, it is just flat surcface, but the screw must go in under some angle, not just straight with screen.
    - The hole for the screw under headlights is not in center.
    - There are no handles to tight the rubber from back mirros, just flat surface of screen again.
    - And for now, no disturbing difference is that there is no edge aroung headlights to cover the canal. The dirt can go deep in that canal. The second purpose of this is that the screen is locked from left/right moving, but it is missing on my screen.

    So, for the money, this is too much cheap made and quality is low... if this is not semi-finished product without details...

    Did you others received same screens without these needed details? If yes, how did you screwed it in?

    Thank you

    My Puig for S1 also missed the mirror rubber holding parts, and even started scratching headlight a bit. So yes, they seem to be not completely finished.

    Aha, but now I am looking the pictures on ebay and I think it is completed as these details are missing on the pictures too. When dissasembled the OEM screen I have seen that also mine headlight is a bit scratched from the OEM screen. I work as QA and I am sure I can say that it is made in low quality, and I am disappointed, also because no one in this or similar topics didn't complaint about these production failures.

    The biggest problem is how to screw the screws in without damaging screen. Do you others use all 4 screws on the top for this screen? There are two phillips and two inbus screws, I have problems with the inbus two only, so the question is, if it is good enough to screw it with two phillips screws on the top and one under the headlight, so will those 3 screws hold the screen in position without problems?

    Thank you

    I installed the S1 version a few weeks ago. I don't recall any issues with screws going in at angles, or holes not being in the right place. I actually recall thinking how well made the screen was, and amazed how it fit my fairing perfectly.

    Wonder if there are cheap knock-offs out there, and they just slap a Puig sticker on it? Who did you order it from, was it a reputable seller?

    Re: FZ6 Windscreen Poll

    Where did you purchase this? MRA Vario.

    Disregard, found it on twisted throttle. Will post an update after it arrives. My Puig windshield looks good but puts the air right at my neck. No buffeting per se but the wind noise is out of control, and it's not the helmet!

    Cheers!
