Thanks Ruger, probably cost me a fortune to get one to N.Ireland! Like the size and shape though��
Just had a look at your link, the one in it doesn't curve around the headlamp the same as in the photos, unless they've updated it or somthing! Thanks anyway.��

Windshield type

Found this, it's the one, look at the postage same price as the windshield! Then I'd get hit with a load of import duty!

Yep...that be the Kawasaki V force windscreen. This and the original touring package fairing were the only windscreens sold for the bike by Kawasaki.

Many had issues with buffeting with that windscreen, but most of the aftermarket ones weren't much better. I had a Memphis Shades "Hellcat" which too was very similar to the "V Force" ....

To each their own of course, but I've always wondered why have a windshield that doesn't do much wind shielding? Is it an aesthetic thing?
