Well after 58 pages, I still have a Windscreen Question

Are 1200GSA riders switching out their screens.
And if you are, is it a sucessfull change?
I hate the looks of the Aeroflow, but don't mind the Givi. Any 1200 GSA'ers with a Givi screen out there?

I for one am damn happy to not be playing this "which is the better windscreen?" game anymore. The stocker is (finally) da bomb for me.

After 58 pages, you'll have seen (as I have) that there is no magic bullet... different screens for different folks is the word... (and there are people looking to upgrade from 1200ADV screens...)

My advice is to carefully analyze what exactly you don't like, and figure out what is causing it... then address that... It may be turbulence coming up from the side... it may be the accelerated, turbulent wind coming off the top... divide and conquer... And be aware that helmets are part of the solution... some are very quiet in clean air, but very noisy in turbulence... Schuberth C2 for instance...

Question New Cee Baily GS 12 Windshield

I see that Cee Bailey has a new screen for the GS 12. Anyone tried one yet? I'm thinking about a 20 x 20 to work with my already installed ADV. wind wings Currently have the stock screen and have the normal complaints (buffeting, noise). Don't like the look of the Aero. 5' 11" / 29" inseam.

Comments are welcome.

I am in the same boat. Here is a link to the Cee Bailey Adventure Shield.

Here is a link. the Adventure Model has a support bracket and comes with winglets.

http://www.ceebaileys.com/bmw/1200gsepws.html

I called Cee Bailey this morning to ask if I could swing by and demo one. They said no. Said they were all made to order.

Too bad. Would have loved to try one and give a write up.

I bought the Givi windscreen and have also installed the Adventure winglets. This combo solved the wind shear issues for me (6' with 32" inseam). I have an '07GS1200.

Talking

I am not sure anyone is solving any real problems in this thread but I will bite:

07 12GS
5'8"
29"inseam
39" saddle up

I think the aeroflow and Laminar lips are unfortunate looking. I would prefer to keep it simple and not drill wings into my pretty new bike. Buffeting and noise is really annoying.

Any advice for a new owner?
Cee Bailey?
Givi?
BMW ADV?

I would like to be able to see over the screen and not through it.

Jim VonBaden, advice for the vertically challenged from a vet?
opinions, please

Vario Screen

Any other folks get the Vario adjustable screen in Wunderlich catalog? Part # 8110413 How is it at high speed? Looks nice for colder/rain(up) and then summer (down). Seems like a toss up for this or the Givi. I already have the GSA winglets and it has helped some. I'm 5'8" (oops after writing this, I went to the Windsreen F&Q sheet on 1st page and(Nice Job JimO) and all the info tis just what I needed. Thanks
Michael

It sure would be nice if the original FAQ were updated to include the 1200 aftermarket screen info (I think it was written back in the 1150 days?).

Anyway, collecting screen heights available in 1 place might be useful... measured from bottom screws to top of screen:
GS stock: 13" H x 18" W
GS stock + laminar lip: 17" H
GSA stock: 17" H x 16.5" W
Cee Bailey: various - 16, 18, 20 or 22" H x 18 or 20" W
Givi: 17.5" H x 22" W
Aeroflow: ??
Dimensions above gathered from various places, so any corrections are welcome. Is there an Aeroflow owner who could contribute?

After chatting with Leo at Laminar Lip, I've ordered a lip to try on the stock GS screen... we'll see.

1150 GSA screen

I've had tobinators on the bike for three years - work really well for toruing but still get buffeting - went back to the stock arrangment for a big off road trip - didn;t like it at all . I'm 6'3 and borrowed a mate's screen of his 1150 gs. The standard GS screen is fantastic - no turbulence at all even at high speed - more wind noise but the ear plugs fix that - gonna leave it on for a few months and see how it goes but so far so good

Not one screen will do all.

You have to decide your choice of riding or combination there of. Its the asme for seats or tires. The windscreen that is huge and great for touring will suck if single tracking through the woods or the dunes of a Dakar.
I do use a larger screen on my KLR but have had to beef-up the fairing that it mounts to.

Aeroflow and PIAA's

I'm considering buying this 07 GS and wondering if I could install an Aeroflow 1/2 fairing with the PIAA's?

I've got the same lights and had to move them to the engine guards to clear the lower half of the Aeroflow fairing. I used the accessory mounts offered on Piaa's website, I think they cost about $30.
