Is this on the 800 stock screen?
Where'd ya get it?
I'm going out for a ride, will post pics when I get back. I ordered it directly from Laminar Lip. My son has one on his Triumph and his SO has one on her Yami, and they like them so, for the cost, I figured I would give it a whirl.
Here are some pics I just snapped of the Lip
Hope this helps, I'm going for a ride.
I bought one of the Lam Lip. I would rather have a smaller non turblent shield than a tall complete coverage shield. I had a Aero Flow once on my R1150gs which was great in the rain on my Canada ride , but it was too hot for riding down south the other 11 months of the year. This may be the perfect solution. I noticed that since I "dished out" my seat the air is more turbulent where I am now sitting. (lower height)
I am still thinking like you and HTC...
I have the F650GS but an 800 stock screen cast off from somebody with a aftermarket screen + maybe the Laminar Lip or the TT extension might work for me... I'm in NC and don't do a lot of cold weather riding....
I installed the same set up on my bike.I wear a Arai XD and now I don,t have to use ear plugs. ( but I will .) I have to stiffen the visor ( it viberates ).
This thing is great. When I cover up the hole in the lip I get Helmet noise. It is cool how these things work.
I just did a 160 mile ride that ended up down around 32 degrees without my Gerbings shit, listening to my tunes the entire time with no ear plugs, that thing works.

How tall are you and what is your pants inseam?
I'm 6' with 29" inseam, so I sit tall.
I guess I am 5"5-5"6 --29-30 inseam.
I never realy measured my self up. But I think I am a little short F&*(er when I am on a rocky trail.
Is it easy to remove for shorter dirt rides or is it mounted permamently?
5' 8" 29" inseam
I have ridden my bike with both the Cee Bailey 18" Dome and the 16" Euro shields. I prefer the looks of the shorter Euro Cut but the taller Dome Cut provides substantially better wind protection for me.
I'm 6' tall with a 30" inseam. I have a long torso.
Also note the larger washers on my shield. BMW provides tiny support with their tiny shield. I felt that with the larger shield that I should have larger supports so I went to Home Depot and got a bunch of larger washers. The shield appears more stable, but the frame that BMW provides is the weak link in the support chain IMHO.
The Cee Bailey shield has been used for the last two months and has made my bike much more enjoyable to ride.
easy to remove ... it has the plastic velcro like on headlight and taillight covers. strong stuff. Test rode my lam lip yesterday!!!! Work perfectly I love it! and I can take it off for my rocky road rides
How tall are you and what is your pants inseam?
I'm 6' tall with 29" pants inseam so I have a long waist and sit as tall as my brother who is 6'4" tall. Most windshields dump the air right at ear level (which is really noisy) or on my chest like the stock F800GS screen.
I really wanted to get out of the wind and noise and finally accepted the fact that I needed a TALL windshield, and style be dammed. California Scientific had the best information about how to determine how tall of windshield you should buy. They also have good information about the how and why of their design. I used both their chart and their measurement methods and determined that I need their X-large model.
I have about 30 miles with it so far, half of that in strong winds of 15-20 mph with gusts to 40 mph. No adverse behavior in the wind caused by the windshield. The airflow touches the top of my helmet. The turbulence between the quiet air and that beyond the bike is soft, unlike that on my 950 Adv. If I raise an inch out of the saddle I start to hear turbulence, at two inches it's getting noisy. Next test: can I put the peak back on my Arai XD3 - I bought it for the sun shade but it vibrated too much. Other good news: I can ride with the face shield open 1/4" or all the way. With the stock screen I had to keep it latched. I will have to get used to the top of the shield in the lower field of view; line of sight with the top is about 20 feet out.
CalSci has added braces to the windshield that are not shown on their website. It's readily visible in these photos. Installation was pretty easy.
I am 5 11 with a 32" in seam...
My wind screen experience....I once had a R1150gs with the adjustable mounts...when I was riding in New Mexico on a rocky road it was diffcult to see what rocks to avoid with the front tire so I had to stop and adjust the screen down with allen wrenches. when I got on the highway the wind was killing me...so stop again break out the tools. With this screen I think it will be perfect.
I have a friend with the cali and he loves it...I think it is over price in comparison with the cee bailey- how much extra should be charged to cut a hole??.
It looks like you could mount extra velcro dots on the lip in order to move it up or down as needed. Is that the case?
Thank's a lot! Seems like I need to place an order for a lip.
