after market windshield for f800s
I've found a pristine f800s with 6k on it to buy. Problem is, even though it has an aftermarket windshield that is 6" higher with a laminar lip on it than stock, at 70 it begins to lift me back off the bars. Let me add that it has the st conversion handlebars mounted. Any ideas about windshields to solve my problem. The bike is gorgeous and handles like a dream. I hate not buy it, but I can't do 500 mile days as it stands.
Well, a nice but expensive solution is the madstad.com windshield
I used to drive a k75s until last year when I upgraded to a f800st. IMHO both have the same problem of too low of a windshield with a problematic angle of attack and location/offset.
FWIIW, I re-engineered the k windshield on both fronts (many kudos to all the websites and articles out there regarding modifying the k - I just followed in the footsteps of giants) and found solving both resulted in a great and quiet ride. Regarding the f800st, I actually selected the madstad.com windshield because of that experience prior to buying the f800st. A friend actually said I bought the bike just to go with the windshield :-/

Hope this helps.
