Looks perfect from here.

How would you rate the windshield?

Trust me, it's a 10-footer. The closer you get, you'd see the imperfections. Mostly dents in the exhaust and a few blemishes. Other than that I really can't complain though, it's pretty decent.

I haven't actually taken the windshield out on the road yet. Just installed it last night. And on top of that, I only go around the neighborhood so far, so I can't really say. It does look really sweet though, and installed easily.

What windshield is that? I'm really thinking about getting one. I had bought one off Ebay that the guy said would fit the 750, but it wasn't even close...

Someone may correct me if I'm wrong, but I think mine is called the Kawasaki Fire and Steel "oem" windshield. It was one of the options you could add on to the bikes when they were new. They don't make them anymore but can be found on ebay or on here. Post yours in the for sale forum, someone may want it for a different bike. I lucked out and found someone on this forum who wanted my memphis shades police windshield, and they had the F&S windshield, so we just swapped.

I bet that's a National Cycle windscreen. I have a larger version with the same type of mounts on the windshield itself.

I took the time to check and I am right. Look here> http://shop.nationalcycle.com/perl/cycle/N2590

I only understand what I don't understand.

Cool, thanks... Really on the fence about a windshield. I really like the wind in my face, but it does get tiring on long rides....
