    K75s Windscreen alternatives

    About to ride from SoCal to Colorado. What are good alternatives to this postage stamp sized windscreen?

    I'm happy with my Aeorflow, http://www.aeroflowscreens.com/K75S/K75S_Products.htm and I've heard good things about laminar http://www.laminarlip.com/k75s.php Not sure if there are many other options out there still. Had a Parabellum, did not like it at all.

    Just remember that a larger screen will put higher loads (because of the longer lever arm created by the taller screen) on the two lower press in nylon screw retainers.

    BMW believes that it is already so weak that there is a sticker on your bike that says do not exceed 98 mph with the stock windscreen. I routinely ignore that, but I replace those retainers every couple of years.

    IF you install a new windscreen, I STRONGLY recommend that you replace all four retainers.

    +1 on the retainers. That's how I lost the Parabellum shield, it pulled out and flew over my head on I-75. Then a semi ran over it. Since the holes were already hogged out too much for the stock fasteners to do much good, I replaced them with nylon license plate nuts, never had any more problems.
