The taller GS windscreen and Touratech Spoiler???

Has anybody matched up the 3" taller BMW GS windscreen and the Touratech Spoiler. I want to buy one but am not sure if the taller windscreen can hold the weight... Anybody?

TIA

Forget the Gs/GSA Shield, go right to Aeroflow, I've had both and would do the same on the next bike, you can toss the wiglets too. Even had the TourTech spoiler on the GSA, Toss it out... My experience. I had both 07 GS & GSA and about 5'11"

I have the above mentioned set-up and it does support the weight. I rode through Wyoming through 50mph gusts and it worked quite well.

Interesting... I have the large GS windshield and I wouldn't have thought it could put up with the extra resistance provided by the TT spoiler.

Have that

I have a GS (1150) with a GSA windscreen and the TT spoiler. I think it works very well and does not look like I have a super large windscreen.

Check out a Laminar Lip. I have one on my GSA and it works great. Came with the bike so i don't know about cost.

Sounds like more then I would normally encounter and I can always remove it if it gets any higher. The added weight/strain on the shield was my main concern. I'll bet the fifty mph was hard to deal with, even without the spoiler on...

Thanks

This is an old pic, but this set up never gave me any problems.

The strap hooks directly on the dash hardware.

MRA VTA-10 adjustable windscreen extension

Thought I would post here as I've been trying to solve the dirty wind on my 09 BMW R12GSA. I had one of the TT spoilers but didn't like trying to look thru the clamp. I purchased a MRA VTA-10 and just completed the install.

Got it thru twistedthrottle.

It looks like it accomplishes what I want (haven't riden yet) .. will post again tomorrow with feedback.

Wow, thanks goatman, thats looks like the one. I had already bought the Touratech one, but if it's like you say and I have to look over the clamp, I will definitley be buying this one. Not only does it go up and down, but it looks like you can vary the air flow depending on how much you want for cooling or deflecting rain... Many many thanks.

Keep in mind the install is a little tricky on the adventure windscreen. The spacing between the mounting brackets puts you right on top of the lip at the top of the screen. I wanted as much height as I could get from the spoiler and that means mounting it as high as possible. It all works but the plastic back bracket has to be broken into two pieces in order to clamp. I can send additional pics if needed.

My first ride was this morning and result is huge improvement. As you say the flexibility of moving the spoiler up and down is nice. I had a similar spoiler on a k12RS. Worked great there as well.

Take care.
