laminar lip

I am 5'8".I put one on my 96 K1100rs,I am now in a cocoon,no wind buffiting,which was bad. I just put one on my 02 1200rs,standard windshield with the same results. Don't worry about it blowing off,I went up to 130 with no problem.Just follow the directions when installing.

I am very pleased with my Lip.

Thumbs up lip on RS screen

Yeah, I installed a tinted one on mine.....great in cooler weather/long rides.....used sleeve bolts and rubber grommets instead of their velcro...yep, I drilled the screen (whew!) but it turned out great..use hole plugs when it's off.

Laminar Lip vs. "Comfort" Windscreen

Hi All,

Just a bit curious if anyone has any experience with a Laminar Lip on a regular screen vs. a "Comfort" Screen (aka the screen on the GT)?

They seemsimilar in shape; I like the idea of mounting the laminar lip in the winter on an RS screen and being able to take it off in the summer and have the RS screen.

I have the GT screen that came with my bike - be kinda nice to have that flexibility w/o having to remove a windscreen....

Hey Milkman,
I have a GT with a short tinted wind screen, I don't think it is as tinted as yours. Does the Lip really work that good? I am 5' 10" after reading your post and others got me thinking of buying one. I have the OEM on for cold weather, you still get wind noise with the OEM. The tinted one is a bit shorter, possibly like an RS screen. Not sure, it came with the GT when I purchased it. Definitely shorter than OEM. May I also ask where you purchased the Lip.

Thank you
