After market windshields on K1200GT
I have tried the original BMW stock windshield. Noisy (I never wore earplugs before), lots of wind in the eyes (I wear a modular helmet but prefer the shield open with sunglasses) and the passenger finds more wind "pushing her around". So I tried a CeeBailey 2"taller and 4" wider windshield. Same noise problem, If I run with the windshield full up I end up looking through the windshield (not what I want), somewhere in the middle of the range seems to work best but still much windier on the arms and elbows. Neither seems to create a pocket of calm air to ride in. Previous bike was an FJR1300 with the CeeBailey taller and wider windshield. We both wore 1/2 helmets and never wore earplugs or face shields. Help, I need to get this problem solved to enjoy this bike.
Aftermarket Windshields for 1200GT
Thanks for all of your replies so far. Has anyone ever tried modifiying a windshield, by placing it in the oven and altering the lip on the top?? I know it can be done and you need a big enough oven, the right temperature and some sort of tool to work with. Real good pair of oven mitts are a must too. As I have ridden along, I sometimes (with the cruise on) hold both my hands over the top edge of the stock windshield angled forward about 45 degrees from the stock shield and it is perfectly quite. It seems to me that if I could mold a kick-out to the top of the shield that would be the trick.
