    Windshield question.

    Will the windshield from a 2006 R1200RT fit a 2010 R1200RT?

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Hi Thomas,

    Good question. You would think that they would be interchangeable, BUT.... I just looked up both windscreens on Maxbmw's parts fiche and they have different part numbers. Now, that does not mean that they are not interchangeable, but at $600, I'd want to make sure before I plunked down the cash.

    There was a design change in 2010 so the 05 - 09 may not be the same. I would suggest a call to Maxbmw. They're pretty knowledgeable about these things. Even if you're not buying the new windscreen from them, they'd probably be able to confirm the fit.

    Cheers,
    Mark

    The mount and mechanism part numbers for '06 and '10 are the same, but the shape of the shield and fairing changed a little bit in 2010 with the Camhead introduction.. If you look at aftermarket shields, some say they fit 2005-2013, and some make a distinction between the Hexhead and Camhead models. The shields that fit both eras seem to have a opening at the bottom of the shield where it meets the fairing in the lowered position.

    I guess the answer to the question is that stock shields are not interchangeable, but aftermarket models might be.


    Oh, welcome to the forum!
