    Taller screen
    « on: 2022-03-06 17:31:19 »
    I have a bike with what I think is a standard screen on my 2011 model, for my height 6'2" I have short legs and a long back so sit quite high. I have found http://www.bmw-windshields.co.uk/contents/en-uk/p140_bmw-r1200rt-windshield-tall-vstream-for-r1200rt.html but not sure if it for a 2010 - 13 bike, are there other options available?

      I have a Ztechnik VStream windshield fitted to my 2012 bike.

        I’m 6’6” and have been very pleased with the 24” 7Jurock screen on my ‘15 RT. They make a screen to fit your ‘11 RT — about $185.

          Like David I have the larger version (Z2403) of the brilliant Ztechnik screen on my 2011 RT. I have used this screen on three RT's (2008 Hexhead, 2011 and 2013 Twincams) and can highly recommend it. The quality is excellent and the increase in riding pleasure is vast. You may wish to consider fitting up-rated Upper Screen Support Arms as any increase in screen dimensions will put a greater load on the arms.

            As confirmed above, the windshield support (#2) is the same for both Hexheads & Camheads.



            Like Our Gee, I have the up-rated upper screen support arms (replacement for #5) fitted.

                Be sure to check out California Scientific. https://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/R1200RTprod.html
                This guy offers two styles in three sizes each for the RT.
                Mine is the 'Standard Width' 'Large' (pictured on the red bike on his page. Black bike has the wide version)
                I'm 6'2" and it works well for me so far.


                use the yr button at the top of the page, and note that his measurements on the size chart are taken on the convex side of the shield.


                The rest of his site is interesting, actually it's a large blog by an engineer that's been around and has a lot of advice to share.
