Working on some no throttle figure 8's...
Hope these plastics next to your bike doesn't belong to it
What windshield is that? 2013 right?
What is that behind your right pannier? It looks sort of like an exhaust can?
Yes, it is the Wunderlich Varioscreen.
runnin4melife - That is my toolbox made out of an old KTM990 slip-on (thank you BikeBoy) that I hollowed out. It was BikeBoy's idea, and he did something similar to his KTM990 + he gave me the part. This way I always have my tools with me even without the panniers:
Hahaha that made me laugh for a good minute! That is awesome!
My old R1200GS had a GIVI AIRFLOW that was phenomenal, so I decided to stick with the two-piece windshield concept for this bike. I believe that the space between the two pieces reduces the buffeting. I ride with an Arai XD helmet, so I really appreciate the fact that this windshield does a good job.
1- Excellent wind protection with no buffeting.
2- Sturdy, high-quality design and built.
3- ability to adjust (not easily though) the windscreen height.
4- Creates a space at the base area for Ez-Pass, water bottles and more junk.
1- Price (but you do get what you pay for here).
2- It is hard to adjust the tension screws to be able to move the screen up and down easily by hand without it sliding down by itself. I ended up tightening them (4 screws) with an Allen-wrench, so I need to use the wrench every time I want to adjust the screen. Since I'm lazy, I'll only adjust it twice: In the winter and in the summer .
3- Not like the GIVI that is tool-less, here you need tools to adjust it and to take the top-part off for serious off-roading. In this case you might as well take the whole thing off.
4- I had to use my Dremel tool and cut some of the plexiglass on the base part to make more space for the headlight screen bracket. Not an issue if yo don't have one.
I ride as much as I can, so wind protection in the winter is very important for me. This screen does wonders, and I couldn't be happier with it so far!
What hand guards are you using? Can you turn Lock to Lock and not bump the Vario screen much?
They are the BMW hand guards, have to wait for his answer about hitting the screen.
I don't know what that is...some windblown garbage and a metal sign or something.
Not bike parts thankfully...
Yes - BMW hand-guards, and they leave about 1/2" of clearance on each side as you can see in the photo:
Here's where I had to cut for the headlight guard:
santa brought me racks...
I also cheated on her....
Nice. You definately picked the right bike to cheat with.
too bad she leaks oil....
I just got that same guard in the mail today.
So I was test driving the 800 with the new steering damper which was going great until I was pulling a second gear wheelie and got snapped by a speed camera... I was at the balance point during the photo so I am hoping that they can't see my plate
Anyways, if I get a ticket I figure I am due, I have narrowly avoided them long enough. The steering damper is awesome though! I haven't even dialed it in and it is tremendous improvement!
They don't have too many of those in WA. Once in a great while during construction. I'm guessing it won't be long before they are everywhere. The state needs money... What better way than to criminalize all of the honest commuters who accidentally go 5 over the speed limit?
He he.... Busted.....
