    Hi!

    I'm looking for a better setup for my 800ADV. I've already saw the 800 STD thread about screens, but nobody posted anything for the ADV.

    Anyone has replaced its windscreen or added a spoiler?

    Sorry for my bad english!

    Thanks,

    I have a laminar lip on mine: http://www.laminarlip.com/index.php. It is not a model shown on the website.

    I like mine, it keeps the wind off my chest and allows me to look over it. Like tires, oil, seats and just about everything else, opinions vary

    i have the Wunderlich spoiler and works great. No buffeting or strong wind force against my chest and helmet.

    The laminar lip is almost perfect for me (5'8"), almost as good as the windshield on my previous R1200GSA.

    I mount two Touratech GS Adventure spoilers to the top of my windshield. Gives me touring-windshield like qualities. I love it. What I used for my Alaska trip. Now I'm spoiled and can't ride without them.

    This is my prototype. Rode more than 1,000 miles. Keeps the good oriented flow as the original and improves a little bit more the air over the helmet. I'm 6'.

    Sweet looking! What is the height? I tried the generic Touratech, but it was @ 1" shorter than my stacked version and that made enough difference I went back to the stacked.

    I looked for measurements on this and couldn't find them. Anyone know?

    Looks very good! Thank you so much @sskelton!

    Bigger than I expect, but perfect for taller people (like me)

    That actually looks good. It's kind of hard to tell from the website how it fits/looks on the bike. I do believe I'm going to have to get one so the wind finally goes that last couple of inches over my top vent :D

    I have the PUIG. It keeps the wind just right, it's adjustable, even while riding, and is about as attractive as dogs balls. I do find that I am riding quicker than usual, due to lack of wind. 6'1", and Shoei X2 helmet. image.jpeg
