I’ve fi­nally got round to fit­ting a big­ger screen to the J125, and I’ve opted for the Givi op­tion that Kawasaki have in their cat­a­logue as an of­fi­cial ac­ces­sory. And while I’ve been putting it off for a while, I wish I’d done it months ago as it’s made a big dif­fer­ence right away. It’s fixed the main is­sue I had with the old one, which was as soon as I got onto the mo­tor­way it would bounce my head around thanks to the wind­blast hit­ting me right on the hel­met. But the most wel­come ben­e­fit hasn’t come from the height – the ad­di­tion of side bulges to keep the wind off your hands makes so much dif­fer­ence, and keeps your fin­gers warmer too.
