Screen Strengthening

Hi to all. 2014 R1200GSW here.

Did anyone purchase, or have opinions / experience with the following:

Considering buying it (and their Pillion Seat Plate too).

Thanks in advance.

Doron

Many have purchased this and the Wunderlich for their GSW's.
With the stock windscreen it probably is not necessary but if you install even a slightly larger screen it will help cut down on wiggling and vibration a great deal, may even prevent some damage caused by the eventual fatigue of the assembly that secures the screen to the bike and allows for adjustment.
I have a PUIG screen and the Wunderlich product.

I have the screen strengthening brackets, they are excellent. Work really well and make the whole screen assembly less wobbly which means (for me) slightly less turbulence.

I didn't like the Wunderlich parts because of reports of it slightly obstructing the GPS lock and also being only on one side.

Thanks

To JetSpeed.
Thanks for your reply. I do have the taller Cee Baily and one time, while overtaking an 18 wheeler, I thought that the flapping of the screen will be enough to get me airborne.
I read your comments on the Pillion Seat and could not agree more. The new pillion seat arrangement defies logic. Almost makes me regret selling my 2005 R1200GS.
Thank you CUG too.
I am sending my order to the UK today.

I have them on my 14 GSA with a CeeBailey shield and they work and look great. Shield is rock solid and they are easy to use if you want to adjust the shield up or down. I highly recommend them, and Mark is great to deal with. Money well spent IMHO.

I have a Givi screen, works well enough... They have a stabilization kit for the left side that I think is great, cheap enough and readily available. 5108kit is the part number, I think. There is some confusion Givi's own literature and it may be a 5180kit. Just another choice, I am not claiming better or worse than any other one.

I am sure two would be better but I am quite satisfied with one one the left side when passing trucks with my Givi 5108DT in the full up position.

My 14 Adventure screen will wobble above 90 mph and when passing trucks. Do you need to order 2 of these for the Adventure model? How long did they take to arrive state side?

The kit includes a left and right side bracket. I'll take some more photos in daylight tomorrow.
