    Hello

    The upper windshield brackets on the BMW R1200RT bikes tend to brake, due to the fact that they are too thin for the forces they have to put up with. As a replacement, I have started making these stainless steel(aluminum or anything else will lose it's nice finish) brackets that will never fail and will look always look shiny on your expensive bike [​IMG]

    They are a direct replacement of OEM BMW part numbers 46637686677 and 46637686678 . The lower brackets do not need to be changed since they seem to be more robust and most of the wind down force while riding is sustained by the upper brackets.

    Change yours today, in order to avoid uncomfortable situations in a journey, and if you consider changing the OEM windshield on your RT, these are a must have!

    A pictorial on how to get them installed will follow shortly. Basically, the side fairing needs to come off and some parts of the front/windshield need to come off as well.

    The price is 98$ per set , which has shipping included , worldwide! ( approx. 19$ )

    Purchases can be made via my website with a direct payment trough Paypal.

    Since sent, it takes 8 9 days to get there. A tracking # for the pack is available, so that we know where it is at all times.

    Thanks, Dan. I'll go order. All fasteners and hardware from stock parts can be used to attach, correct?

    Right. You just need the shiny stainless steel parts that replace the fragile aluminum OEM's and anything else gets reused.

    I did not get to do the pictorial and it has been a while since I did it first time...

    Anyway, it is pretty straight forward, you need to take off the side fairings and the nose fairings and from there on, it's intuitive. Never over the years has anyone asked me for how to mount them because they got stuck somewhere...

    Thanks, Dan. I've never attempted to remove any fairing parts, and I'm a little worried over breaking something, but I'll figure it out. Probably some Youtube clips out there somewhere that show how.

    Hi Dan,

    Not sure if you still make these? I sent you a contact request on your website yesterday. I live in Mexico and Mex postal service is unreliable at best. So need delivery through DHL or UPS if possible.

    Cheers and thanks,
    Guido

    Guido... :) The email address you provided was wrong and I kept getting the mailer daemon replies back, no matter what combination I tried.

    I will send you a PM here.

    Thanks,
    Dan.

    Thanks Dan.Got your PM, responded and ordered. In case you or other customers still looking for pictorial. Found this YouTube video which seems to explain pretty good how to install the brackets. Have not tried yet since I first have to receive mine

    By the looks of it, they seem more like a 1100/1150RT brackets...

    If you have yours off the bike or you can measure them, I might be able to help you as I have a set made for my RT but didn't got to finish them :D

    Thanks,
