THIS one looks interesting with the adjustable spoiler. Any tried one?

Ran into a guy the other day with that one on his f800... he says it's so-so.

Looks a bit too low to offer enough benefit of the spoiler.

Powerbronze Flip screen light tint

Really like it. Looks great on the bike and a major improvement over the stock screen. Price is very good too (less than 120$).

Going with the Robo system

My Metal Mule windscreen came today...... turbulance!! I am 6'2" with a 33" inseam. I had cut my stock screen down and it works great for around town and on the dirt, but not great if you need to go a couple hours to find the next off road ride.

I noticed that if I pushed the Mule down while i was riding that the air cleaned up around my head, and it was much better. So, I purchased my RoboBrackets from Madstad today and I am going to do the trick mod that Marky did. Being able to change the angle of the wind protection should really help. That is one big advantage the 1200 gs has over the beast. Seems silly but that adjustable windshield makes a world of difference.

I hope mine come out looking as nice as Marky's did!

I will post pics when I get it done

Check back with me in a little bit.... i have made a tweak to the front screen, plus I have found turbulence coming in from down low affects my visor. something that gets solved with the wider touring screens. I am creating a prototype add on that deals with the low turbulence. Anyone with a stock 800 screen would be able to use this add on to reduce lower turbulence. My plan, if it works, is to manufacture it and have it for sale as an inexpensive add on to the stock screen for low turbulence. That may take a bit though. OH. and my policy is nothing FUGLY!

My plan is to have a whole system that is modular to suit your needs. Have a few other product ideas that i'm working on too. Things that i'm sure everyone will dig.

Lower turbulance

Marky,

I will be waiting to see what you come up with. The turbulance on any tall screen I put on is a killer over 55. I always seem to go back to a short screen for clean air, but it starts to get hard to hold on after 2 hours at 75-80 and the wind blasting you in the chest!

Norway,

Edit button! Thanks for the help!

Aeroflow

I got the new Aerflow today, and took it out for about a 50 mile ride. I'm really happy with it. I'm 6' even with a 33" inseam. I had originally gotten the large, but sent it back for the xlarge. I had the Calsci large, and was getting a bit of buffeting. The large Aerflow was pretty much the same as the large Calsci, so I traded it (the Aeroflow) for the xlarge. With the xlarge, the wind stream is just about at the top of my helmet, and my vision line (over the top of the screen) is about at 60'. The Aeroflow is very sturdy, with a good solid mounting system. I also think, aesthetically, it's a good looking screen (complements the bike's lines). There's still a bit of minor buffeting, but I don't think you're going to be able to do any better with this bike. I also got the AeroGuards. I'll switch back to the factory screen for off road, but for touring, this is going to work out well. I went through some kind of bug swarm just after dark, and the windshield was covered, but my helmet was pretty much clean, so it's doing it's job.


Here's some pictures. Sorry about he background making it hard to see the screen. I didn't realize I had so much crap in the garage until I saw these pictures.

What're you looking for? It seems like every angle has been covered in this thread. I've got one, love it and feel it's perfectly suited to the bike.

Do you want dead on and eaxctly side? Here's dead on:
