    Looking for 2022 RT TFT protection

    Has anyone found a good film or gorilla glass protector for the bigger TFT on the RT's. Possible anti-glare or whatever will work best to perform close to uncovered. I see many choices for the GS's but none for the RT. Thanks.

    I had hoped to get some feedback from someone who had tried a screen protector out for fit, clarity, etc. My dealer has never sold one so has no info. At any rate, I guess the BMW one is the best/only choice so far.

    Iíve have one on the bike since new and 12,000 later Iíve experienced no issues with it. TFT screen wipes clean quickly and I donít believe it adds any additional glare that some have commented on.

    I have the BMW screen protector . It is indeed very easy to clean but when the sun is at my back the screen gets a mauve colored glare on it that all but covers the info on the screen. Installation was fairly easy but I ended up with acouple bubbles that eventually went away on their own with time and heat from the sun.

    I have a somewhat related curiosity question. When I turn off my '22 RT, the TFT sometimes shows spots and marks on it depending on the angle I view the screen. I've tried my favorite cleaner - Plexus Plastic Cleaner - and although I can clean the screen, it never looks perfectly clean; it's next to impossible to get all the streaks or spots off of it. The screen has a flat, almost textured appearance. When the bike was new, I was convinced there was a screen protector installed for shipping, but I can't find an edge to peel anything off, so I've come to conclude this is the actual screen. When I turn on the bike, the spots and marks largely disappear into the background, so it isn't something I think about much. Is this how they all look?

    I'm not sure what you are seeing but I fine even when I clean with Plexus it isn't free of marks and streaks until I spay water and wipe with a clean microfiber cloth.
