Aftermarket windscreens

Is there really a aerodynamic difference between a stock and aftermarket windscreen or are they mostly for show? I'm thinking about getting a Zero Gravity windscreen from Revzilla but not sure if they are worth the money or not.

I kinda like the double bubble screens but again, I'm not certain there is a difference between any of them....

You wont notice being faster or anything but it does deflect the wind from your body and help the wind go over your head when tucked. For my zx14r i have a touring screen gor long rides. Not so mich wind resistance on my so i dont tire out a fast.

Thanks for the input! I was think of going with the Corsa model. I just wanted to be sure I wasn't just getting a windscreen that was a tinted version of the stock one.

They are close but do have the double bubble hump so a little improvement. I personally like the Puig screens for the 10R and the Zero Gravity for my 14R.

The zero gravity has different options and allows more more of a touring screen for my zx14r. I like puigs looks for the zx10r.

Puig actually puts their in a wind tunnel and gives your a print out to see the difference it makes.

Both are really good options, I would say I sell probably sell more of the Zero Gravity for the ZX10R. OP, shoot me a PM if interested in picking up either option.
