High Windshield for F700GS

Haven't seen any in the aftermarket as yet. The bolt on points are just a little different than the 650 or 800. Anybody go a line on one? The stock is pretty much useless.

F700GS Screens

Ask your dealer for the windscreen adapter brackets. This enables you to use all the screens that fit the F800GS/F650GS.
I've fitted a Givi tall screen to my 700 and it's very good.

Hi Lyle,
The part number is 77338531603 and it's called the "windscreen holder kit". It cost me NZ$96.00.
Hope that helps.

2013 F800GS Windscreens

Anyone have a touring screen on their 2013 F800GS to report about?
Far as I know the only ones that definitely fit the 2013's at this point are the BMW, Touratech, and Cee Bailey screens, but correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm 6'1", but only 32" inseam, so my upper body may be closer to "typical" 6'2" person.
The stock screen blasts wind right into my upper shoulders and face making highway speeds tiring and turbulent.

Any first hand experience is appreciated!

Or you could try something aftermarket for about 1/3 of the price. Got my sport screen from Cee Bailey for $120, works really well and screws right on.

My bad, I thought I had sifted through all the 2013 threads.

Forgive me, perhaps I'm using the wrong keywords, but I can't seem to find that recent thread you mentioned concerning 2013-specific windscreens, would you mind linking it here? Thanks.

Here you go:

The reason why you didn't find it was because it was entitled to the 700GS but they need basicly the same fairing.

Hope this can help you. Otherwise I think the old ones will still fit the 800GS.
