Wunderlich universal screen extension with BMW touring windscreen

I've found a few bits here and there about using the Wunderlich screen extension with the regular F800GS windscreen, but does anyone have any feedback using this with the BMW touring screen (which curves much more towards the rider)?

I had one of those on my normal screen for about 10 minutes when picking the bike up from the dealer. It already fell off.

No experience with these but I use a laminar lip with the touring screen that really made things quiet for me for longer trips. Also easy to take off and leave at home / the camp site or throw into the tank bag for shorter day rides and off-road use where it can be more important to see directly IFO the bike.

Nice one, don't suppose you have a link? Am really just looking for something to cut the rough air at high speeds... smooth things out a bit...

Many thanks

Well, based on these and other's comments, I ordered one up.
Did you get one? Review?

I ended up sticking with the OEM touring screen for a 3000 mile trip through the Alps because I stupidly forgot to order one in on time - and then ended up impulse-buying a 2014 R1200GS with adjustable windscreen... still intending to get an extender for the 800 before my next trip though!
