For how it holds up in speed, see some thoughts by me and others here: https://www.z900rs.co.uk/index.php/topic,544.msg19460/topicseen.html#new. It has a wobble at speed, but it doesn't bother me. One member has corrected it with a custom, homemade set of brackets. Most think what I think -- wobbles a bit, doesn't affect ride in any way, and the fairing is great.

It's Evotech rad guard

I tried and failed miserably to actually ride my bike today.
Yesterday was a very long and tiring road trip home from France, finally arriving at my front door around midnight.
So this morning I thought a good blast on the RS would blow a few flies away, how wrong I was, my timing was all over the place and decided to put it back in the garage before I did some damage. What has this to do with 'What did you do to your Zed today?' I hear you scream, I saved her from getting seriously hurt through my selfish desire to get a ride in while the sun was out, not realising just how tired I was.
Boring but true.

Saved your bike from damage and maybe your self too. Good thinking. I've gone out twice on mine and cut it short and came home because I just just didn't feel right.

Thatís absolutely the right thing to do.  Riding isnít like taking a drive in your car.

Installed LSL Superbike Fat bars. Much better feel now. Not as upright as stock and feel more engaged with the bike. I also have a Chic Cowl and with the lower bars the cowl hit the brake reservoir (even with the Chic supplied reservoir bracket). So I replaced the bracket with a kurveygurl universal bracket that can be modified to any shape. I have the reservoir sitting next to the mirror right on top/in line with the handlebars. It's good for now but think I'm going to replace the reservoir with a Rizoma one. Can't get used to this ugly stock one.

Did those bars require drilling or where they pre drilled?

I don't like drilling bars. I just shaved down the plastic pegs on the control switch blocks.
