What's the biggest windshield out there for my 2003 K1200RS. I really want the wind off my head and shoulders. I am thinking about the Laminar Lip but wondering if there's a recommend out there for a big shield. I'm 6'3. Thanx.

I agree that the wind protection is not very good. I have a ’01 that I am setting up and am 6’2”. After checking on line I have concluded that the best WS is offered by Aeroflow. Check out this link:

It costs more than any other but takes care of the problem. I’m saving up for one.

The best windscreen set-up strictly for wind protection I had on my '04KRS was a stock GT screen W/ a Laminar Lip. I am just 5'9" and I personally think anyone over 6' would be pushing the limits of the Laminar Lip.
Conversely the worst windscreen I had for any use on a KRS was the stock short shield W/ a Laminar Lip. Go figure!!

A short Ztechnik shield worked great in the summer. Very smooth air flow over your body.
, almost as smooth as no windscreen at all.

I don't ride slower.......than 80-90 mph......and still get +40 mpg......just did 1300 miles over 4 days thru rain,sleet,hail but no snow.....SL,UT to Taos,NM and back....the Aeroflow was right on....I'm 6'3" with risers, pegs lowered and a Corbin seat...:D



I would warn you that these screens are a bit thin, flex a lot and I have some cracks around the mounts which have been drilled to postpone spreading..... :dunno:

Wow, I never have seen that look on a KRS. Are those still available? The mirrors look closer and lower then stock. Do you still have a view of what's behind you or do you just see the luggage?

My Schurgers wind-shield is a little bit to tall, so I have to pay them a visit next week to let it trim an inch or so.
Very nice shields! shiny RVS hardware and no more wind noise for me any more!

My bike is a 2003 K1200RS. I have the Z Technic windshield and it does a fine job. I haven't compared it to others though. I like the idea that I can raise it with a push of the lever and down when I want to go fast for possible better economy.

Does it come with the lever to raise and lower it? Or did you add one?
It's not clear to me whether it came with the shield or not. I am a second owner and it was already there when I bought the bike. Maybe i can do some research to find out and report back for you. It sure works nice and you can adjust it while in motion.
