    .   Itís the MRA windscreen and itís performed better than oem tall screen and Puig touring screen that I previously tried. Iím 5í10Ē and pushes wind higher up and wind buffering isnít as bad as with others. I think unless you had a huge touring type windscreen this is probably about as good as it gets. ✌🏻

    My Z is a 2023 model year. It's hard to tell from the online sellers. I've only found the MRA for 2017-2019 model years. Do you know if it changes for 2020+? I think it did since in 2020 it had the TFT display and different headlight assembly.

    Yes Iím pretty sure the newer models are different and wouldnít expect the gen 1 screens to fit.

    Installed Leo Vince LV-10 Black Edition on 2020 Z900 (EU model). Quite louder and deeper sound (thanks to smaller breadbox compared to 2017-2019 models).

    Finally, I got my new saddle today. The driver saddle skin and cushioning (thicker by 2cm), the rear seat just the skin redone by local upholsterer. The price 4000,- Kc which is about 170 Euro or $180 USD. So far happy with the look, I will see how comfortable it is when the spring comes.

    Out of interest, does the LV10 have a baffle in it? If yes, can it be removed as it has a mesh over the top.

    No, no baffle. And i just removed mesh (cut with pliers and hammer and flathead screwdriver for removing welds). Interesting, sound is noticeably deeper and somewhat louder without mesh grill.

    Tnx for the info, looks good :028:.
    I had a 2017 Z900 which I recently part exchanged for a 2022 model. I had the Leo Vince Pro on my first Z but unfortunately had to leave it on the old bike as it doesn't fit the new Z. So now I'm looking for a new end pipe. I picked up the LV Pro 2nd hand on this forum, so looking for something cheap for the new bike.

    To quote myself....

    Yesterday i tried it in my driveway without riding the Bike and noticed deeper and louder sound. Today i rode it in City traffic and on open road. It is MUCH more deeper and louder, I could swear someone stole my breadbox  :008: . Its like it had a db killer before mesh grill removal, and i'm not exaggerating.
    I had Leo Vince GP Style on my previous Z750 and that was loud slipon. But this is even louder, at least subjectively.
    How Kawasaki managed to alter breadbox so much for Euro 5 exhaust i don't know, but its a night and day difference.

    Like I said, I have recently changed from the 2017 to the 2022 model, and straight away, the first thing I noticed is that the exhaust is noticeably louder on the new model when comparing the stock exhaust on both.
