Slipscreen

Does anyone here know if the Slipscreen from Machine Moto Art fits the newer LC 1200 GS?

No, but the Puig one does.

Chopped the stock screen...

Yep, I chopped 6.5" off the top of the stock screen and used Plastidip (sp?) on the backside to black it out.

I use this screen year round here in CA. Link to pics below....

I bought a used stock screen and cut it down for my summer riding. It worked quite well and I was able to fine tune it to what I liked best. Started with it a little higher than I thought I wanted and took it down gradually.

I also cut down my stock screen, but now kind of regret it, as it wasn't as successful at getting my head into clean air as I'd hoped.. maybe I'll eventually go shorter, but it looks about the same as the others pictured here...

I had much better luck with the Touratech sport screen with spoiler as there was much more adjustability between the screen itself, and the included spoiler smoothed the air coming off the top of the screen. I added a set of Tobinators and it was actually pretty good..

I was about ready to settle on this option, but ended up trying the much larger Wunderlich Ergo screen. This offers more protection, but about the same turbulence.. so I just use this one as I'm too lazy to change back and forth depending on the weather..

If anyone is interested in the Touratech screen or Tobinators, shoot me a PM.. I should clean out the garage a bit this spring.

I painted the inside of my screen black. I found that with the screen down like your and the inside painted black, you can't see what is inbetween the screen and the instument cluster. I will often leave my gloves tucked up there. I ahve been know to leave other things there.

I contacted Puig yesterday. This windscreen will be available in mid May.

I had the one from Machine Art Moto on my oilhead and I loved it. the only thing that I didn't like was sustained 75mph was a bit difficult. not the best for long trips, but when you get there that windshield rocks.

for those of you cutting the standard screen, how do you make sure the cut is clean and the lines are straight? I am thinking of cutting mine but I wonder whether I can do a decent job or it is going to look like a 3 yo with mild ADHD did it...

You put some masking tape over the shield and draw a line where you want the cut. Repeat until you like the look. Then use a band saw and follow the line drawn on the masking tape. The final step is to use a file to smooth out any irregularities in the cut and some sand paper to make a nice clean edge.

I did it on my '05 a long time ago: http://www.snafu.org/pics/r1200gs/2006/0517-windscreen/

the result:
