    Mine is 2009, but repainted to trophy.
    GSA screen fits, but these corner brackets need to be relocated .

    One of the highest screens made entirely of plastic is pretty unusable for me. Wind power which typically ranges from the belt to the helmet is entirety directed at helmet. second disadvantage is wobbliness without any additional metal bracket.

    I've tried a givi 17" screen. No luck with reduction of wind buffeting with my shoei Neotec. Then got a TT spoiler and tried that on my oem 800 screen. Works really well for the city but still not perfect for long time touring. Got a custom cee baileys screen off an inmate (I'm guessing the 18" was reduced to 17" was almost perfect but I guess the 18" might have been perfect. Added the TT spoiler to the cee baileys making it 22", very quiet but I hate to have to look Thru the deflector. That's really distracting. The newest update for the winter rides and long hauls is just installed but still to be tested. The custome cee baileys with the givi deflector (it was too high even on the lowest setting so I removed the deflector off the clamp and flipped it around. Time will tell.

    Also added the cee baileys support bracket to see if it will help.

    i cut a cee bailey to fit on my mirage 2 while it rained today. i did a rush job figuring it was only for testing anyway, so it's a little sloppy.

    it should do better than cut powerbronze i was using since it's a lot stiffer. i'm actually looking forward to using this screen, i left it high enough for it to be a good touring screen for colder weather.

    I'm new to the GS family. But I've seen these touratech windscreens quite a few times before, and I always really liked the looks of them. And now, when I'm trying to find one for my bike, I can't find them for sale anywhere. Anybody knows if this is some old model, not in production any more, or is it just for different market?

    Yeah ... it's the Desierto 3, still have it on the same bike as on the pics from 2011, still happy with it. Back then Britannia hadn't come up with their alternative yet ... if they had I seriously should have consider it. Price wise I then in 2011 evened up the difference by shopping from Poland instead of Touratech Sweden, think I payed around $540.

    (But the Desierto still have a tougher look :lol3)

    Have since a year equipped the Desierto with a MRA X-Creen Sport as I now a days only use helmets with a beak, either my FOX cross helmet or my NEXX XD1 ... found out that the Desierto in the top position made some air go under the beak & lift the helmet, felt it in my neck after every longer trip in higher speeds. The MRA X-Creen solved that & it's easily folded away when going into rougher terrain.

    Highest position both Desierto & X-Creen

    Thanks for the input buddy. It's pricey but it looks cool as hell. I'll definitely have to take good thinking about it.

    Here's a pic of the Givi Airflow. Works really well for me, 6'3". I did have to remove the peak from my helmet. But all in all, it takes most of the wind noise away. I can't stand wearing ear plugs.

    Has anybody ever thought of trying a 1200GS assembly on the 800? I would imagine a one off adapter plate might be needed, but that would be a good set up and be able to adjust up and down. I dont know anyone with a 1200GS personally to try seeing how hard it would be.
    I would not think it impossible. Some guys here have done some heavy fab work...

    So i finally took a ride with my new Isotta Adv windscreed...445 mm high and for me, at 1,8o m tall, works great, no more turbulences, no more noise from the wind that hit my shoulders. Just the sound of Leo :)). The plexiglass is 4 mm thickness, has a reinforcement bar and at 150 km/h has no vibrations in the plexiglass. I'm pleased!!

    Any chance for a link. It seems like it uses a very different Fitting. I don't see the 4 screws that attach to the regular windscreen holder.

    I can confirm the GIVI Airflow is a good option for the GS Adventure. I had to replace the factory one after the first week, I could not stay on the bike with my hight 6'4". You can adjust the height of the windscreen easily to find the best wind protection.
