SXC/LC4 BMW windscreen

I just recently sold this bike here in "flea market".






I have been emailed/PM'd/called about this windscreen about 15 times in the past couple weeks so I thought I would post a little info about it here for anyone who might interested in duplicating this project.
Had I known this BMW windscreen would have generated so much interest from the LC4 crowd I would have put it on ebay.


This is simply a stock windscreen off any BMW 1100GS years 1995-1999.
They came in clear and in smoke and should be available on ebay or maybe even here in the flea market.



It installs fairly easily but you must be willing to spend a little time fabricating some hardware/bolts etc. The main supports bolted onto my Baja Designs front turn signal brackets that were mounted to the upper triple clamp.
The bolts are about 3 inches long and are rubber mounted to absord a little of the shock. I had to drill a couple holes in the sides of the screen to have a place for the turn signals since I was occupying the original mounting positions.



The upper half of the screen attatches to the brush guard clamps on the handlebars. I used an extra set of clamps I had sitting aroung the garage but these can be picked up anywhere for cheap and IIRC they are standard bar clamps.



Another shot of the hardware. The total length from the handlebar clamps to where the support rod is mounted to the screen is 7 inches long and is rubber mounted to the screen with stainless bolts and flat washers.

Not a big project but is a little time consuming.
You may try calling Baja Designs for the 04 SXC front turn signal bracket but everything else can be had with a little imagination at the hardware store.

cheers

They are just doggie saddle bags you can get from any pet supply place. Had to modify a couple straps to secure them to the subframe and are less than $30 and disposable IMO. Soft luggage is the only way to go in the dirt IMO. I don't want hard bags landing any where near my legs if I go down.
Travel lite, put your stuff in zip locks and these bags work great.

Cool thanks.

I'm intimately familiar with the ziplock routine...
