Yep, before I went single headlight it was the PUIG for me, it was better than the standard cowl imho but each to their own  :134:
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.
The question is, what is the question?

I fitted a Zero Gravity 2003 Z1000 smoke  screen to mine.

It made a huge difference at motorway speeds and personally, I think it looks smarter than any other 3rd party screen.

Haven ridden in unfaired  SV650 for the last 14 years prior to my ST I think I have just gotten used to wind trying to pull my head off on motorways.

Another pic ( without the pumpkins ) on a wee trip to Scotland.
No buffeting or neckache @ 120+ - on a private road. Did 1400 miles in 4 days
Ugly as an ugly thing, but so0ooo effective!

I can't honestly say I've noticed too much wind blast on the street triple, having said that, I'm used to naked bikes. If I was touring or constantly on motorways I'd probably look at different bikes.

I wonder what the Triumph motorway triple would look like

I fitted the Powerbronze screen last year and it makes a difference. See below for previous post.

To be honest I felt that their screen was a bit Heath Robinson, they supply thick double sided tape to stick it to the cowl. Just not up to the job I am afraid. Might have just had a dodgy one.  :490:

I have the standard 'visor' screen that screws to the pixie hat. I probably would not have fitted it myself as I like the look without, but the bike came with it and I somehow have never bothered to remove it and buy another pixie hat without holes. Personally I suspect it doesn't do much until you're well over 70mph. I've tucked down behind it at 90+ (not on the M4 m'lud) and it does help at those speeds but at 75-80 I dont think it does much. Although as I said, I haven't tried without. The last bike I had with a proper fairing was a 2001 zx6r.

Play nicely!
Bikes I've had:
Vespa 150 Super, GPz500s, FZR600R, ZX6R, FZS1000 (x2), 2009 Matt Graphite STR
and some pedally ones as well!

You must have a dodgy one alright. Mine hasn't budged even after a year of buffeting on the motorway.

+1 after nearly three years.It did take a bit of fiddling to get the tape right though.
Me, I'm just a lawnmower you can tell me by the way I walk.
