Any Exp. w? Z-Tech Windscreen or MRA Race??

Does anyone out there have any experience with the Z-tech windscreen for the S? I purchased one of the MRA Touring screens and it does not seem to fit me.

Would also be interested in comments on MRA Race screen.

I am 6' tall.

Your thoughts, experience or recommendations would be appreciated.

2 MRA screens compared

Think we've chatted before - here's an update. (I'm 5'10 1/2 with a 34" inseam so I can't be sitting that high.) I replaced stock screen with MRA touring screen, and found wind noise noticeably worse, as well as feeling more wind hitting me in the neck. Just removed it and installed MRA race screen (gave it a shot after long helpful phonecall with Jerry the Pirate's wife) and after one ride I can tell you things are much improved. For the first time with any screen I can ride with visor up; sunglasses do fine up to 45 -50mph. Not as pretty to look at especially from the rider's viewpoint (it has a funny-looking edge shape IMHO) but if it's quieter back there I'm happy. Off to Death Valley in a few days so I'll let you know how it does at 150+.
