Wunderlich FlowJet

R1200GS Before Modification

One of the great things about owning a motorcycle is the many things that can be done to customize it. I have really enjoyed my R1200GS and have made a few upgrades along the way. One of my most recent upgrades is the FlowJet Shield from Wunderlich. This replaces the large windscreen and just covers the gauges as is more typical on sport bikes. The extra air offered by this setup makes these hot summer rides more comfortable. It also provides a quieter ride. The sound level is similar to standing on the pegs and getting your helmet out of the turbulent air near the motorcycle. One disadvantage with this setup is that is not easily adjustable. The shield does have a short range of motion, but to adjust it both an Allen key and a crescent wrench are needed. It seems that some simple modifications could make this adjustable without needing tools. The added wind really feels good. Adjusting the screen over its small range of motion changes the air and sound level allowing for fine tuning. Overall, I think this is a great product, and I recommend it to other R1200GS owners looking for some relief from the heat. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, and I completed the installation in less than fifteen minutes.

The Wunderlich windrscreen will cover the backside of the gauges and headlights while providing a breeze similar to a sportbike.
