    The National Cycle ZTechnic VStream screen Sports touring/ Medium size

    Bought this earlier in the week. Used for 40 miles only, still has label fitted.
    135 Posted or 125 collected Basingstoke. Not really wanting to take offers, if it doesnt sell at this price happy to keep it.
     OK I was going to keep it, but have now decided to try the sport version so need to free up some cash
    So Price drop to 125 posted, which is a saving of 40 / 25% on a new one

    Hi Baz,
    If I collect the screen would it be 115 ?

    Cheers

    Hey Baz, That windscreen looks like it is just about the same height as the OEM wind screen. How would you rate it's performance? I know you don't have many miles on it, but what was your impression of it? I like the look of this screen but was hoping to get some feedback on how it performs vs the OEM screen.  Thanks!

    Of the 3 sizes that VStream has, I have the largest, no noise and I don't let the pilot pass air.

    Being so big, I always keep it closed at the bottom, obviously due to my height that I see through the screen.

    By always having the display down and turning on the ignition, the display does not rise, which means that every time the ignition is turned on or the engine is started, the battery is saved.

    On the other hand, the screen in the low and curved part is wider than the OEM, this allows me to insert my hand to place the TomTom GPS anti-theft key, without having to lift the screen. With the OEM, every time I had to put in the TonTom's anti-theft key, I had to turn up the screen.

    The only thing I have noticed is that with light rain, perhaps the water droplets stay a little longer. Otherwise, I give it 5 stars.

    Its a good quality product and I think it looks better than stock on the bike.  I found it extremely quiet in the raised position on the motorway. However I prefer looking over  the top profile of the stock screen rather than the VStream. An expensive experiment for me , but someone may get a bargain.

    Bought the Vstream Sport simply to get more air (why have a vented helmet with no airflow) that stays on my bike unless I'm taking a trip, then I swap to OEM windscreeen.

    Hmm, very interesting! Thank you, Digital. This is valuable feedback.

    Thank you, Sir Baz. I agree, the Vstream does look better than the OEM, which I have no functional issues with. I am on the tall side (6'4") so I have no issues looking over the OEM screen, which does a fine job. But I do enjoy the look of the Vstream better. Perhaps I will break down and buy one!  Thanks again for your valuable feedback, gents!  :002:
