Wunderlich Wind Deflector

Does anyone have any firsthand experience with the Wunderlich Wind Deflector on a standard R1150GS with a stock screen?
I am trying to reduce wind noise above 60mph
I am 5'10"

Thanks

Had one... got it for a good price... sold it for what I paid.
Nicely made... very adjustable... but I found it to be too visually distracting at the top of my tall Calsci screen... in my face... had to go!
Don't see how it would be any less distracting on a regular R1150GS (I have an Adv)... stock screen or aftermarket.

I have one on a +4 cee bailey. It is a bit distracting at first, but I got used to it and I really like it now. It knocked out that last bit of noise over the top of my helmet.

I have it on mine. I'm about 6'1" though. I didn't have too much of an issue with the stock screen when it was in its lowest position, but i wanted to see if it'd help just keep some wind pressure off me. It does and does reduce the noise. I also used it on my tall aeroflow screen, it did really well there, but it also makes it tall enough that i have to look "through" it instead of over it. I'd recommend it, i know it isn't cheap, but it seems to be quite a quality unit.

BTW, i still find it to be quietest and least turbulent with the screen at its lowest setting and then the deflector angled up.

Interesting thread GS Addict.....at 6'3 I end up catching a lot of the breeze of my stock 1150GSA screen.

I tried the Touratech model once (the one with the unattractive piece of webbing that goes from the deflector down to the RID for bracing) and found that it made the whole windscreen move around more than without it!

I stumbled upon the Wunderlich option a few months back but never pursued it further......so I'm all ears on this thread.

I'm interested if any user of this deflector for the 1150 had ever tried the Touratech model and can comment as to whether the Wunderlich is more stable.

Not a hijack Reto.....just more info?????

i dismissed the Touratech model due to that strap and i think it was quite a bit more expensive, too. The screen does move a bit more, but it's nothing bad and nothing i am worried about.

im reading this in hope that it may be a solution to my KTM 950 SMR..i am getting hit in the shoulders after putting the 690 screen...so if i could get that wind a couple of inches higher!!!...

and i also just have to accept that its not a GS with one of those great screens that you could have your visor up at bloody 60!

Man this sure helped me today.

I ride a GS 650/800 twin and I have been through four windshields and currently running the CeeBailey newes heavy duty in the 18 inch size. It is the highest that would not look awkward on a F bike and I was hoping would be my go to screen for winter and stop the wind noise on longer rides. I bought the BMW OEM part for the brace and love the whole install and everything with one caveat. It needed about another inch to quienten for my height. I'm five nine and I wanted a lip like was on the MRE windscreen I had last time but they do not make them for Cee Baileys. I thought about buying one from MRE in clear to match but I am hesitant to drill holes in the windscreen so looking into the Wunderlich.

I found a you tube showing it and it looked excellent and now that I've read the above , I am thinking this might be just the ticket.

Anyway thanks for the help guys, it may solve my issues. If so that will give me a summer and winter Cee Bailey as I also have the shorter 12 inch screen . The MRE windscreen had a funny vibration to it and made you think for all the world you had a bearing going out. Very annoying . Also the turbulence on it was worse than the tiny OEM that comes on the bikes.

Thanks again.

Now anyone have one they do not want ?? LOL They ARE pricey . That is almost as much as I paid for my whole windshield.

Just got this for my E900AC (sorry to post in here with the Boxers :P ) - looking at the instructions I have figured out where all the rubber/metal/3M HB stuff goes, except for the clear vinyl piece. NOt quite sure what that is for... any hints?

There is feedback from BMW riders on these deflectors - does anyone else use them and do they work to reduce noise?
