Powerbronze windscreen for naked

Does anyone know how these mount (handlebar clamp, drill holes into fairing, etc)? Can't seem to find much info on them.

Ebay has the powerbronze for $85.

Puig looks okay but I'm hoping to save some money. Has anyone tried the Puig clones?

I heard someone tell me there cheap wind screen will bend when they start going fast and got scared of it ripping off

my puig windscreen is bolted to the front end and itís solid, works wonders on the highway

The Puig is solid on the mounting and thickness of screen is more than adequate. I do agree it is a rather pricey piece but I think the price added up due to cost of the mounting bracket, it is robust and well thought out.

I agree with the sentiment of the Puig screen being more expensive because of the quality of parts behind it. It's super sturdy and I like the looks of it. So I think it justifies the cost.

I couldn't find reviews of the powerbronze quality though, I wish I could help with that. Sorry!

I read about bending windscreens a few times too, though I don't remember which brands. I did some googling and was unable to find any results about windscreens actually breaking off during high speeds though so I think it's highly unlikely that ever happens. Although I suppose if it did break and you were decapitated, you wouldn't be around to tell others...

Regarding the quality of parts, while I'm sure Puig makes good stuff, sometimes there are decent deals to be had with Chinese knockoffs. While I can't speak for durability, initial impressions of the $20 rear seat cowl I just got seem to be good, requiring only some sanding of burred edges in order to prevent tearing of the seat. Of course, there are duds too like the CRG clone bar end mirrors that fell apart upon bolt tightening. I haven't examined the $100 adjustable rearsets that just arrived, but I'm hoping they are OEM MGP rather than cheap knockoff.

Has anyone tried the Puig clone? I read some reviews stating the bolts are too short, or something to that effect, but I think I read the same about the Puig as well. It's hard to pass up $45 vs $160.

Iíve used the power bronze stuff for over thirty years. Itís on a par with the puig stuff. Iíve never had a problem. That said, I havenít tried one one the GSXS so I canít vouch for how easy or how good a fit it is.
