Need Opinion on Windscreen.. Please!

OK.. I am getting rid of the nobrand windscreen (bought used) than came on my 2004 Hayden. I am contemplating Puig, Zero or Lockhart.

Anyone that can offer any opinions and especially pictures of what you have would be greatly appreciated!!!

IMO the stock SP2 windscreen is better looking than any aftermarket brand.

a bit expensive, you might say... What about ebay? Replica? I'm just glad the stock was still on my bike when I bought it.

Zero Gravity makes exact OEM duplicates, but I have no history with Zero Grav. Good quality? Their replacement is $85.

Thanks for the help!

The double-bubble design acts as a parabolic reflector, especially with dark tinted ones.
If you have your bike faced away from the sun, the sunlight will get focused near the gauges and melt the plastic.
The clear ones allow enough of the sunlight to pass through that it isn't as much of a problem.

Reportedly, Honda corrected the problem in '04 and up with a instrument panel cover made of different material that doesn't melt.
