You bought the new Vstream for the GS right? How much did you pay and how difficult is it to install? I think I like this one also, but I don't see different sizes offered though.... At your size, Do you see over the thing? I'm 5-11 with 32".

Thanks.

Yes this is the model I purchased. I believe I paid $229 at the Denver BMW dealer. Very easy to install, even I was able to install it with no problem (I have no skills).

I had it on the highest setting and could see over it without a problem. I was out on the road again today in big wind, 20-40 mph, and it worked great. One added benefit is that I am getting 0 bugs on my Shoei Hornet Helmet.

Hey guys. I have an 08 GSA. Will this "NEW" windscreen above work with the stock winglets?
I'm thinking of the laminar lip on my stock GSA windscreen, and if that doesn't improve things, maybe try this "NEW" screen. The Aeroflow is way too big and cheesy for me, no matter how well it works.

Vstream lists height at 19.5". Can someone confirm how that is measured? From holes or bottom of polycarbonate?

Also, so pics of the bracket would be nice. Hard to see on their web site.

thx

I you put ur hand there, than you'd immediately notice a serious improvement!
This is why I am looking for the accessory!
That's where the winglets come in.
The Aeroflow screen for the 1150 comes with winglets that mount between the bottom of the beak and the tank. They are about 5 inches wide by 8 inches long and have a bend to match the beak/tank angle. I noted a huge amount of air coming from that area when the winglets broke and fell off during a ride.

Your options are usually; buy the 1200 winglets and bend them to fit the 1150, make your own or do without. I made a pair but wasn't happy with the result (probably made them too narrow) so I've now purchased a set of 1200 winglets that I will be bending to match the cockpit angle of the 1150.

So you're going to bend 1200 wings instead of buying aeroflow wings to replace the lost ones? Are the 1200 ones cheaper or somwthing?

After a VERY long ride I found out that I need the winglets, since I really cannot make them myself and these little things are not for sale... I will have to buy a screen that has the winglets "incorporated", such as the Isotta full protection or the Wunderlich ergo.

Which one is the best in the winglets area?

Is anybody selling its winglets...
The winglets are not the total clue, the total clue is the CB ultra comfort like i show here in:

IIRC the BMW ones are about $75, and the wider and easier to modify ones from Cee Baileys are $40. I like the Cee Baileys because they have no extra lip like the factory ones, and are significantly larger.

He's replacing Aeroflow ones, how do they price out?

Do these make a difference with an ADV shield or just with the wider, lower aftermarket ones?

I made a separate post today about the Wunderlich Ergo screen and how it was rated. It seems wider and lower yet still looks good. They have really large leg protectors that they say work well. Haven't heard any responses yet.

The screen fits right on the standard frame. You use the GS Windscreen Hardware.

Really? In the pic from their website it appears there are 2 screws at the bottom, and 2 more about 1/2 way up. Though the upper screws may be associated with an optional bracket? I'm just curious if it is part of the standard screen support.

On the GS there are only 2 support screws - at the bottom.

This screen is so tall that a little more support would seem to be required?

The screws located higher on the Windscreen are for the accessories bracket.

The Windscreen is taller and larger but not by as much as you might think.

Well that does it, mmhummm. One too many big ole greasy bugs on my helmet this morning, and I sent this email to Carolina BMW. After 1000 miles in three weeks, I'll be stepping up.

Will let you know how it does.

5'-11" / 32" pant length (who measures inseams?)




Hello sirs,

I would like to try the "ride and buy" for this new Windshield, The Z-Technic VStream NEW Z2414 , for my 2008 R 1200GS.

Please let me know what I need to do.

Thanks for your help, and enjoying the ride (but not the wind!)
