F700GS New Windshields
 
If anyone is interested, I took my new 700GS on a 351 mile interstate trip to Cee Baileys in LA to get it measured for a new windshield, Got a dark tinted Sport Shield which is larger than the tiny little thing that protects the speedometer that came with the bike. The sport shield is tall enough to move the flow of air from my mid chest to just over my shoulders. This is great for anything under 50 MPH and looks much better than stock.

But the great news is that Cee Baileys will have an 18 to 20 inch windshield that I can see over but moves the turbulent air over my head! Besides designing a new windshield, they have designed their own support bar (knee brace) with attachments, similar but different from what had been available from BMW for the 650. Should be ready for delivery by December.

I was looking for something between full tourer and off road and this should do it.

Will provide pictures and review after I get it.

Looking forward to seeing it.

I contacted Aeroflow to see if they had something in the works but they said they wouldnt have access to an F700GS for a month. They asked if I would be interested in bringing them mine to try and get something going but I never heard back from them.

I'm also hunting. Anyone know if Wunderlich's Vario Touring Windscreen will fit the F700... or plans to?

My new F700 (in red also) is fun but 45 F air blasted onto the chest and neck is getting cold!

As you can see on the picture here below, BMW has created a metallique part to authorize the installation of the higher screen from the F800GS on the F700GS.
As the Wunderlich Ergo is using the F800GS install matérial to fit the 800 or 650, i donot see any reasons for the Ergo not to fit the F700GS.
Just good to know if that special metallic part is available stand alone from BMW.

BTW, i have seen at the dealer a F700GS equiped with the GIVI screen, the same one than for the F650GS or F800GS. However GIVI did create its own metallic part ( comparing both the GIVI anf BMW part it looks the BMW is more solid and less subject to vibs)

Givi isnt even listing F700GS on their site yet. And nothing newer than a 2011?

It is not because you can not see it that it does not exist (that is what they said at church :D )

I'm going to ride over to Cee Bailey's on Monday and get me a sport shield. No way am I paying $22 for shipping, they are 55 miles from my house. Is it worth the extra $20 bones for tinting? Decisions, decisions...:D

Update on Cee Bailey's windshield
 
I have already updated this in another thread but thought I would correct what I previously wrote here.

Cee Bailey's new F700GS winshield is nor available in sizes of 16, 18, 20 & 22 inches with a brand new engineered USA built "knee" brace. I got the 22" light tint which puts the air over my head with my high torso body (6' tall but only 29" inseam). This windshiled works with the stock handle bar & mirror mounts and also with the 1" risers & mirror extensions.

I can see over the windshield down the road while seated and the road in fromt of the tire when standing.

No wiggles or waggles while driving at 75mph on highway 10 in Arizona!

Love it & looks good too!

Lets see it!

Yes please - a pic with you sitting on the bike would also be nice.

When figuring out the height, should the top of the windscreen be below ones line of sight when looking out straight?

My older F650 had the Cee-Bailey screen but I never thought to measure it :wink:

Where can I get IT?
 
I just picked up my new F700GSMy (in red also:D) and I love it. But it is still a bit cold here in Indy, IN. So I started to look for a new windscreen and this thread came up. Where can I find some of these new screens you're all been talking about? I do not post here to offten but that may change.

We seem to travel a great distance by making things travel in circles.

Cee Bailey's is where mine came from. I am waiting on side case liners from them too.

Thanks for Info.

Two ovals side-by-side represented infinity by the ancient Greeks, they were simply foretelling the coming of the motorcycle.

Purchased a 20" Cee Bailey's touring windscreen for a customer with a new 2013 F700GS, standard chassis.

Good looking screen, well engineered support bracket, and easy installation. Customer who is 5'6" without his Shoei Qwest helmet noted improved wind management over OEM screen (short), but Cee Bailey's screen did not eliminate helmet buffeting at high speeds (+50mph). Most importantly screen width did not accommodate the OEM hand guards. Handlebar could not be turn to the extreme right or left, negating the steering lock (handlebar turned left). When contacted Cee Bailey's stated that trimming the windscreen would compromise its integrity. They were gracious about a return with full refund.

F700GS New Windshields
 
I tried the large windshield for the F800GS on my new F700GS, with the required BMW metal bracket. It just wasn't quite tall enough for my SO (5'3"). I recently ordered the large Touratech windshield. It's much nicer for her, though not quite tall enough for extended travel on the interstate for me if I'm on the bike.
