Buying new bike

Hello everyone,
Iím buying a new bike next week. Iíve pretty much decided on the gsx 1000z. Although, Iím going to commute and the f is probably smarter. Is there an after market windscreen available? What the best company for after market parts? My last bike was a hyabusa. I kind of regret doing all of the race work to it. It didnít ride well until about 120mph. Between 80-100 it ran rough. So after market is going to be minimal. If anybody could list what they like and donít like about this bike I would be so grateful! I hear the throttle is sticky, but Iím sure I can get used to it or get some work done.
Any advice would be more than welcome! Iím going through Costco pricing and putting down whatever they need. 36 mo. 0 apr is free money or should I take the $1500?
I looked at the ninja 1000abs also but I liked the gsx better

There are a lot of discussions on here about screens, but if I were you, I'd just buy it, ride it, then decide (then again if I were you, I'd get the F). They are both **** nice with no mods at all.

If I didn't have a long commute I would get the naked. I have rode 30 minutes on the hwy with no complaints and that's a lot with my neck situation.

Slow is fast

I agree, I have the Puig as well. I did not dig the wind blast of the naked bike when I got it, the puig installed makes it enjoyable. I feel its comparable to my faired bike, not so much due to screen if theres more resistance but more or less sitting more up right. the wind chart that came with the puig claims 58% better air flow with the windscreen (they have a wind tunnel) fir testing.

Another "thumbs up" for the Puig, looks best in dark smoke IMHO.
