This is a discussion on 2009 windshields? within the Ninja 650R Accessories forums, part of the Kawasaki Ninja 650R category; I'm desperately seeking a quieter helmet and bought a scorpion the other day. It has different noise uncharacteristics than my HJC, namely lower frequency tendencies. ...
I'm desperately seeking a quieter helmet and bought a scorpion the other day. It has different noise uncharacteristics than my HJC, namely lower frequency tendencies. It's much more tolerable than the HJC which has enough wind noise that I can still hear the higher pitched noise with ear plugs in. All that said, I took a great step toward a quieter ride but still would like a little more. When riding yesterday, I tucked behind my stock windshield and all the offending noise went away. It dawned on me that the air is breaking off the windshield and hitting me about shoulder level and that's what is causing the noise.
I see that zero gravity makes three windshields that will fit my bike. I just want the wind to just clear the top of my head so it's quiet. Anyone got any experiences with the double bubble or sport touring windshields? I'm currently getting about 47mpg and really don't want to sacrifice too much of that either. If the DB will raise the air flow up just enough, I think I'd prefer it.

How tall are you?
I have the zero gravity touring screen and the wind still hits my helmet. Which is fine by me, I want the airflow. I'm 5'8".
Might be time for some custom earplugs.

I didn't see if the OP mentioned he wears ear plugs... if not, ANY ear plug is a good start for the sound issue. You will hear traffic, honking, and everything important just fine... you just won't be as deaf in 20 years.

BTW I noticed no real difference in my MPG when I added the bigger protection, but I do have to lean forward for it to work well and it isn't as comfortable as sitting straight up.
