Thread: New wind screen

  1. #1

    New wind screen

    Hi all, I’m looking for some suggestions for a larger/better windscreen for my 2014 1200GS then the OEM windscreen. I would like something that is a little taller and wider so that in cold weather riding I have less air hitting me on my 6ft frame. With the OEM wind screen all the way in the up position I still get hit in the upper 1/4 of my helmet.
    I appreciate any suggestion you should organize you could provide me.
    Thanks y’all

    Puig

    Wind Junky,

    I bought one of these for a 2014 GSA and have been very happy. I am tall as well and this provides great wind protection. No problems, reasonable and keeps the aesthetic of the bike.

    Best of luck,

    I have a 2017 1200GS and ended up getting the ZTechnik Vstream. I am about 5'10", with the screen still having a couple of inches to go in the up direction. I have ridden the bike at temperatures as low as 10F with good wind protection. Perfect protection at temperatures of mid 20's F and above. Good luck with your search.

    IMHO worth checking out.

    +1 on the Puig Touring screen. They also make a reinforcement for the lifting mechanism that adds a great deal of stability.

    I would add the Ztechnik Vstream as a good option as well

    I run a Puig Screen on my 2016 RT and it's a significant improvement over the OEM screen.

    I'm glad to know about this reinforcement. I bought a 2015 GS in October that came with both the Puig and the OEM shields. I'm 6'1" and ride with the Puig in the fully lowered position. It definitely offers more protection than the OEM shield, but I've sometimes been concerned about the amount of flex and stress in the mounting arms when the screen was being buffeted by a truck or cross-winds.

    Did you get just the screen reinforcement, or did you also get the cross support?

    If you're interested, PM me about my barely used ZTEchnik VStream. Std height, but a bit wider (search it on their website). Dark, looks great on a machine with black (like my 2016 Triple Black GS). I'm 5'10", and the airflow hits me just a tad low, putting my head into some turbulent air. Better than stock, but it was too noisy for me. Taller or shorter should be pretty nice.

    I installed a smoke tinted Puig w/s on my 2013 R1200GS and really like it, I am 6'2" and have it in the lowest position.....works great. At the same time I also installed the dual w/s stabilizer from Cymar because I was getting tired of the w/s moving around at highway speeds.
