Does your hood/windscreen serve a purpose?
You know that piece of plastic that is shaped with a lip on the end of it? Did you know that it is not a cosmetic design but an engineered piece that has a purpose? The good people from Japan specifically designed the hood/windscreen to deflect wind from the rider's face...just thought I would share something that I often thought about and found out from Yamaha. :P

I know it helps keep my contacts from flying off while doing WOT runs

Will it stop the wind from messing up my hair?

As I went over the handle bars on the weekend I can say that it did spring loaded my face as it hit it and helped me pull off a forward flip
can't say much for the hull it just ran me over

It also affects stability of the entire SKI at high speeds.
Get it right!

And every dog has little sunshine....so you got lucky.
I would'nt go as far as saying it affected handling..maybe a minute bit, but nothing like a sponson or gas weight. Makes you wonder about that little wing on the front of that GPR Tommy brought @ Mudbug.

I think any kind of drag should be eliminated.Wind drag,friction....all that stuff.

with it there the wind will go over you . If you take it out the wind will hit you and create more drag.
