Default Ebay Windscreen??

Wondering if anybody has ever put a windscreen on there bike from Ebay? I just threw 350 dollars towards fixing my fairing since I let my "buddy" drive it and im not wanting to spend 80$ on a brand name windscreen.

I want to know if anybody knows how these windscreens hold up when traveling down the freeway or if they bolt right up with no problems?
Thanks

I got one just like that...I wouldnt go with the one from Hong Kong tho.

I got the dark smoke DB style windscreen off eBay about a week or 2 ago. Fit amazingly...super easy install. Really pulls the look of the front end together especially on my silver/black F4i.

I havent noticed a big difference in wind deflection when I am sitting up straight, but I dont have duck down nearly as far to get under the wind...which is what I was looking to do. I wear glasses, and with the stock screen I had to duck down so far either I was cranking my neck or I was looking over the top of my glasses (which defeats the purpose). You can duck under the wind and still be really comfortable...I havent taken it on any long distance runs yet tho. Its worth the $.

Thanks everyone, I'm going to look around a little more on ebay and check that link out and see what I can come up with. I think I am also going to venture out there and buy a set of bar ends off ebay too haha.
Thanks

Just a word of caution. The one that i got over 2 years ago off of ebay is good fitment but the one thing that is still bothering me is that they called it smoke but i can't see a damn thing through it. Only when i hold it up to the light can i see through it.

This one looks just like mine and you will not be able to see through it.

The other one looks like you will be able to. If it comes from hong kong expect some time to pass before getting it. Took mine little over 4 weeks to get to me.
Mine also did not come with any kind of molding. Make sure to keep all your hardware because u will have to reuse it. I lost a few when i replaced mine.
