    Haven't seen any in the aftermarket as yet. The bolt on points are just a little different than the 650 or 800. Anybody go a line on one? The stock is pretty much useless.

    Ask your dealer for the windscreen adapter brackets. This enables you to use all the screens that fit the F800GS/F650GS.
    I've fitted a Givi tall screen to my 700 and it's very good.

    Hi Lyle,
    The part number is 77338531603 and it's called the "windscreen holder kit". It cost me NZ$96.00.
    Hope that helps.

    Anyone have a touring screen on their 2013 F800GS to report about?
    Far as I know the only ones that definitely fit the 2013's at this point are the BMW, Touratech, and Cee Bailey screens, but correct me if I'm wrong.

    I'm 6'1", but only 32" inseam, so my upper body may be closer to "typical" 6'2" person.
    The stock screen blasts wind right into my upper shoulders and face making highway speeds tiring and turbulent.

    Any first hand experience is appreciated!

    Or you could try something aftermarket for about 1/3 of the price. Got my sport screen from Cee Bailey for $120, works really well and screws right on.

    My bad, I thought I had sifted through all the 2013 threads.

    Forgive me, perhaps I'm using the wrong keywords, but I can't seem to find that recent thread you mentioned concerning 2013-specific windscreens, would you mind linking it here? Thanks.

    I'm 6' 3" and love my Aeroflow windshield on my 2009 F800GS. It works great on the freeway and doesn't get in the way when off-road. When I'm in the dirt I usually always stand up and the windshield hasn't been a bother at all. Give them a call and see if their screens fit on a 2013. They have used and blemished screens that brings the price down. I bought the size that places the top of the windshield between my upper lip and the tip of my nose. See the "A" dimension on the following page. In my case it was the Extra Tall.

    I have a new 22" tall winshield from Cee Bailey's on my F700GS. I am 6' tall but only a 29" inseam so the 22" was best for me becasue I sit tall on the saddle. This is so much nicer when I am on the highways or any road going over 45MPH. I can easily see over it and look down the raod while sitting. And when I stand I can see the dirt in front of the front tire without looking through the windshield. If I was into some serious off roading, I would then take the 10 minutes to switch to the "Sport" shield.

    Cee Baileys came up with a brand new "knee" brace to support this tall windshield. After all 6 scres are in place everything feels very secure. I am going to mount my GPS on the "knee" brace. where it will sit above my speedometer.

    Very nice

    Got an Aeroflow on my 2009 650 GS twin - had it for 3 years now and love it. Also have the Aerogards. Would buy another in a heart beat.
