Wunderlich Windscreens for k1300gt

Has anyone tried the Wunderlich touring windscreen, they have 3 sizes, sport, low touring and tall touring. I have been searching for feedback and the only thing I have found so far is someone who tried the sport screen, although the review was positive I think that screen is a bit small for the looks of the k1300GT. Any pictures of the Taller Wunderlich screens mounted on bike?

The sport version arrived yesterday, so it's not on the bike yet. The stock screen does what I need it to do in cold or wet weather, so the taller screens from Wunderlich don't appeal to me. But, I digress ...
From the Wunderlich catalog site:
Compare all three
There's also some pics on the catalog site (Rider and Bike Protection - K1300GT) showing side views as well.

A couple of months ago I put on the BMW dark tinted version. It's 22-1/4" tall and this 2" shorter than the clear one that came on the bike. I usually run with it in the down position as I like a little more air across the top of my helmet, plus the tint helps to cut some of the glare on the gauges. The new shorter screen also doesn't "shake" as much when extended all the way up.

It appears that the Wunderlich Touring Low is 2-3/4" lower that the BMW tinted one I'm running.

I bought a short for the GT and it worked well enough that I went back to the dealer and bought two more; one for the RT and one for the LT. The RT screen was ok, but not any better than my Cee Bailey while the one for the LT was awful. It was huge and I had to look through it and it was like driving a two wheeled Winnebago. Plus my poor windshield motor couldn't raise it if I was going over 60 mph. I went back to my dealer and told them I wanted to return the LT screen but keep the other two. The dealer told me that Wunderluch wouldn't take it back and insisted there was something wrong with me or my bike as their products are superior. Fact is, I bought three brand new windscreens from them in two weeks and one of them did not satisfy my needs and the arrogant ding-dongs would not make it right. They suggested that I sell my regular size screen on eBay for half price and buy another short shield from them. FAT CHANCE V-Stream of EVER getting another dime from me. All three V-Stream products are now off my bikes and they will NEVER have another National Cycle product on them again. I do not rewards piss-poor customer service with continued business.

The LT is back with the low OEM screen, the CB is back on the RT and I am very content with the California Scientific on the GT.

FOR SALE: 3 V Stream windscreens one each for K1200LT, R1150RT, and K1300/1200GT. $150 each plus shipping.

I could not recommend V-Stream, Wunderluch, or National Cycle to anyone based solely on their pathetic customer service and arrogant attitude. CalSci was great to work with as was Cee Bailey.

END OF RANT and hijack is now over. I appreciate your indulgence.

Windscreens

I want to sell my windscreens, too. I have the shorter of the two Vstreams and the tall stock. I think the Vstream is better than stock, but I wonder if I should have test ridden the taller one. I went over to their warehouse yesterday and was kept cooling my heels, so I left. Products they sell are actually pretty nice, cannot really say anything one way or the other about service. I am thinking about trying the Aeroflow. Quite pricey, esp. with the side ("Aero") guards. Tall version would set me back $600 with shipping! Ouch.

True enough. But I, and many others here, can attest that the combination works just as advertised. Hell, I spent more than that trying out multiple other windscreens that didn't . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

+1 on the Aeroflow Screen with Aerogards. They are very effective. So effective, in fact, that I took the Aerogards off so I could get more air flow for summer riding. Fortunately, they are easy to take off and put back on.
