R1150GS Windshield Replacement

Howdy Y'all,

Been a long-time lurker to the ADV forum, but new to the GS world (purchased a new-to-me '02 R1150GS a few weeks ago ).

My '02 GS (pre-servo) came with a Ztechnik Tall windshield, which has seen better days. The tall screen is also too "tall" for this 5' 8" rider...I don't really like looking through the screen.

A friend has a Moose Racing Adventure windscreen for a GSA that he is willing to part with, but without the GSA spacers is too wide for my GS.

Anyone out there have a set of used spacers or suggestions on which ones to get? I've seen on Max BMWs site spacers for: R1150GSA from 08/02. My bike is 07/02 so not sure if they would work.

Thanks for humoring a NOOB! I have fondly read many interesting stories here and look forward, as a proud GS owner, to actually participating in this fine forum!

Cheers!

JP

I'm not sure what the spacers look like, but it should be easy enough to make a set. If you can find a picture of them, and the dimensions you need, I'll try to make a set out of aluminum or Delrin for you at the shop this week. No charge, of course.

Talk about a welcome! I will need to get dimensions and send to you. I'm willing to pay for your shop services of course!

Thanks for the offer!

No need to pay anything.... maybe a beer someday
Hopefully they're simple enough so that the results are good.

Is this it?

That's the one!

I was going to send you a picture but you beat me to it!

Spacer for both left and right.

It would be easier if I had dimensions...but that would mean I'd have said parts in hand.

If it looks like too much work please don't worry about doing this! The offer alone is GREATLY appreciated! I can pony the $$$ to purchase but need to make sure I get the correct ones.

Cheers!

The only way I can make it is to have some dimensions. I have an '04 1150 GS, but have no idea how long the spacers need to be.
I'd suggest that we make four posts out of round stock rather than two oval shaped ones. We'd never get the oval dimension right without a part to copy.

Have any idea how long they need to be?

Been out of pocket

Earache,

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. Been on travel and way busy with work.

I will need to get some measurements when I get the chance...I haven't even had the time to ride! Booooo!

Thanks!
