    OEM or different screen for R1250RT?
    « on: 2019-11-26 14:01:22 »
    Hi Guys,  I am trading in a K16GT for a R1250RT.  The RT has the short/sport windscreen on it and I will be changing it to either an OEM screen from BMW or another screen depending on your advice.


    So, what do your recommend ?  BMW are asking £300 for a standard screen.


    Thanks

      Ive got  a 16 RT and i use the OEM one through the summer and i bought a Wunderlich touring screen from Motoworks  for winter as its obviously wider and taller and is great for keeping the wind and rain off,just as a bit of advice, keep the original as come when we eventually get some warm weather the tour screens are a nightmare to be behind.

        I changed the stock screen on my 2018 RT1200 for a Ztechnik tourer its fabulous if you do a lot of touring no wind noise around your helmet or face i am 5 foot 11 and have a 32 inch inside leg , would definately reccomend it .

          Advice #1 DO NOT get a BMW screen.


          Advice #2. Having tried various on the Werthead RT, for me, the Works Quiet Ride screen is absolutely superb. Like any other screen, choose the right size for your body trunk length.
          Contact Terry (Realshelby) - he is on this forum, he designed and is responsible for the manufacture of these fantastic screens.

            David,
            Whereabouts are you, near Reading or Slough?
            If so I have a couple of different sized 2018 R1200RT screens (VStream if I remember correctly) that I think also fit the R1250RT. You are welcome to try them out to see how you get on before committing to purchasing anything.
            PM me if interested.

              When I bought my 1250 sport, they offered me the sport screen or standard free of charge. I took the standard, but already had a Werks Quiet ride off my 2014 bike which I fitted. Werks is a brilliant screen. Shipping and tax though in the UK is a bit of a killer

              I've tried various screens on my LC RT …. my absolute fave has been the Puig one I have on now. In the low position it's better than the OEM standard screen in high :)

                  Believe it or not I am in Northern Ireland, so won't be passing by.  The bike is in Plymouth and it looks like I will fly in and bring it home.  Thanks for your very kind and generous offer, my local dealer has a brand new screen he is looking shot of, so it may be a goer.

                    The standard screen is not bad, certainly better than the sport screen, which is next to useless. But there are better options, depends on what you are looking for

                      Check out 7JuRock, they make the works quite ride screens, might be able to help defray some of the costs

                        Think Terry (Real Shelby on here) who designed the Werks screen, was saying that there are now differences between his design and the ones 7Jrock now sell.

                          Casbar you are correct, my Werks standard height screen was the best investment I made for my bike, not sure what the difference is between the two

                              Found what Terry who owns Werks posted on another thread here recently about the differences.


                              Something did change[/font]. Due to one person that continually posted on forums that you could buy the same windshield from another place for less money. Yes, I allowed Julio to sell the windshield I developed. We are a partner in this and it benefits both of us. But he understands that I spend a lot of money and time advertising. We had an agreement that "his" version was always more expensive. Which is was, except that some could not figure out how to add shipping to an actual cost!So, we decided to fix that. Now you can ONLY get a WERKS Quiet Ride in the shape we know works so well from me, WERKS Parts LLC.
