Question Top cut like R1200CL ?

Hey ...

Does anyone have some (or many) miles on a R1200CL ??

Just wondering if that center dip windscreen design actually works

I know the R1150GS screens are not as wide and the effect will not be exactly the same .... but maybe worth a try ... ???

tall screen caution

First: Great job, JimO and others that built/maintain/contributed to this forum.
I've read all these screen posts, and would like to add a word of caution, based on my own experience (1150GS with a Parrabellum screen). If you have a bike with a tall screen, remove it before you ride on gnarly lumpy trails. When the going gets rough, naturally we stand on on the pegs, with the butt off the seat. A big dip in the trail, followed by a decent bump, can send your upper torso forward and down, while the big hard screen rushes upward toward your face. The front suspension, and your body, all compress toward each other at once. On my trail ride, The impact was hard; If it wasn't for a full face shield, I'd have a broken nose, or missing teeth, or a knockout. But just the helmet shield was damaged and I learned my lesson. Snowmobiles use softer screens that would flex on impact, but these hard screens don't flex much.

Question Cee Bailey Windscreen

Has anyone tried the Cee Bailey windscreen on their adventure GS? It seems like a great looking one. The aeroflows are just sooooo ugly.

You'll only take my AeroFlow away if you can pry my nonbuffeted head away from it.

After lots of research I went with the Aeroflow. Thank God I didn't listen to all of the "ugly" comments about the product! This has most certainly been the best accessory that I have added to the GS! I even kinda dig the way it looks......

Stealth Edging

Thanks for all the work! After reading the FAQ I decided to try an interim solution to my windshield woes on my '03 GSA...I ordered some of the SAENG Stealth Edging...Wasn't real fun to install - all the little internal crimp clips are a pain in the ass when you have to cut it to length but, it does seem to make a difference...Not quite the 4 inches that they claim; more like 2 inches but, it does manage to put the wind buffeting at the very top of my helmet which is better (actually feels kinda weird)...Have to admit that the edging does actually add a cool look to the windshield. Will post some picts as soon as I get all the other bits and pieces installed...

DIY windscreen for r1100gs?

hi, I really love my capet windscreen. It's identical to the wunderlich ergo windscreen for the r1100gs. So i'm very sad that it doesn't fit on my gs anymore now that i've put a 1150 beak (a.k.a upper fender?) on my 1100.
Me being 24, there is no chance in hell I will be seen with a parrabellum or earoflow on my bike. I've considered the MRA vario screen, which looks very good on a 1150gs. But alas, it looks awful on the 1100 because there are large open gaps on both sides of the headlight. So I was wondering if anyone has thought of good DIY option? Like keeping the original screen and having an extra large screen that quickly attaches with a few winged nuts? Or a two piece screen like the MRA but using the original 1100 screen as the lower part? Or maybe even something even more exotic like an adjustable windscreen by hand, like the r1100rs, or electric like k1200lt ??

Yeah, there are gaps, but I don't find them at all noticeable. See my pix and judge for yourself.

As for wind noise reduction, it's like night and day in comparison to the stock screen. I'm very happy with this screen.

i still think mine looks better!

i really like wat you've done with the Adv tank. That paint
job looks like a thousand dollars.. :):

I will probably construct my own vario screen using the stock
screen as a base.

Yeah, but mine's bigger!

No really, that is one seriously MEAN looking GS. What is it, a stealth bike?

And how do you get away with not having turn indicators in front? Over here in G.W. Bush's police state, our local constabulary would jump at the chance to extract a hefty fine for that. Or do those spot lights double as turn indicators?

laminar lip on GS

has anybody tried this:

http://www.laminarlip.com/

Evidently, it is new for the GS. I have
not heard how it works on the gs ( or
the gsadv, if there is a diff).

ADV windshield mods

I just put the Adv windshield on my '01 GS. It occurred to me that the old GS stock shield could be modified and attached to the new Adv shield to form a lip or spoiler. It's such a weird idea, I think it must be tried. All in the name of science!!!

Has anyone modified the Adv windshield so as to allow the angle to be adjusted (like on the stock GS shield)?

That would be the Wunderlich screen. Similar height and width, but adjustable... and cheaper than the Adv windshield
