Cool2 Larger Windscreen for '13 GS LC

Apologizing in advance if this info is buried within another thread...
I'm looking for a larger windscreen for my GS LC...I'm 6'2" and sit real high in the seat and the stock one is too low. I get a lot of buffeting as a result. I'm looking at the CalSci XXL, the Ztechnik V-stream touring windscreen, and the Wunderlich Ergo Marathon.

Seems like the CalSci is the tallest and the one I'd probably go with but would like to see if anyone has experience with any of these, or others not mentioned, and take your recommendations.

I want this for mostly a paved ride on the PCH this year, and would probably put the stock one back on for mostly off-paved riding.

Fire away mates, I'm listening....
Thanks!

I went with the official GSA screen on mine.



No more buffeting for me.

Two of our three (in the family) GS bikes have the Cal-Sci screen. No problems so far (8K on the 13 and 1K on the 14). Visibility is good and buffeting was reduced to being a non-issue.

I went for the Puig windscreen and like it a lot.
Did additionaly install a Wunderlich support (windscreen is perfectly stable now)

Z Technic touring screen for me

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=957073

I am very pleased with it particularly for the price. At 5'11' I have it on the lowest setting so I can just see over the top with no buffeting. There is still plenty of range to go up for your height.

Did you use their "yardstick" approach to figuring out what height screen you wanted? Thanks.

I just bought a PUIG tinted windshield as well. I am 6ft, I rode the adventure and that windshield still dod not block the windnoise. The OUIG is 5.75 inches taller than the GSW windshield, I do not know how much taller than the adventure windshield. But at 80mph, no wind noise, I can ride with the visor up and no issues. great windshield at a great price.

No, I used a measuring tape held against the old screen to determine the length of screen that would come to just below my eyes when cranked down. I like to look over it except in rain and splashing road crud (as is common in NE during spring thaw). YMMV.

I would try to find a "two-part" screen with an adjustable spoiler. I have a Givi Air Flow on my -07 GS, but that's unfortunately not yet made for GS LC. MRA screen with adjustable spoiler could be worth of trying, or just adding MRA spoiler on stock screen. Even relatively low screen with adjustable spoiler can be amazingly quiet, like MRA Vario Touring Screen on air cooled GS.

PUIG Light smoke tint.
Noticeably better wind protection, no buffeting and has the OEM look.

Bump. Any new info out there. I'm thinking about breaking down and getting a RT12W due to wind noise. Would like another GSA but tired of noise.
