Question for High Speed Racers

You guys in Texas and south Florida that race for top speed, are you using the stock wind screen or aftermarket screens?

Aftermarket....Puig bubble clear...Could not get under the stock screen as
well. At 150-plus it is much better...

I also grease up in banana oil and wear a speedo to pick up 3+ mph at the top end.

I picked up an additional 2 mph when I shaved my back...

My bike won masterbike...did yours?
I didn't think so...

I picked up with the puig after trying the ZG. The puig is shorter, but allowed me to get behind it better.

Dave- it's trial and error. gotta see what works for you.
