Hey guys, just seeing if anyone out there has an aeroflow, parabellum, etc, screen they don't want anymore and are willing to sell relatively cheap.  Can't afford a new one, but really want to improve the wind noise situation on my K.  I'll probably settle on a new laminar lip if nothing comes up,  but i'm open to a used one of those as well.  I'm in Arizona, USA, 85145. Thanks.

If you have the skills cutting a new one out of Lexan Polycarbonate, Makrolon or one of these materials is not difficult and a fraction of the cost of buying one or getting a used one and paying shipping.

Well, unfortunately, i've gone the homemade route quite a few times before, on other bikes, with lexan and plexiglass and other materials, but am never happy with how the wind protection or look turns out.  I'm ok with cutting it, just not the aerodynamics involved I reckon Rolling Eyes

Im in the same boat mate....

But I get the added screw factor of international shipping of a very large item thrown in! Wink

Good luck

Hi Weezy,

I have an Aeroflow in good condition off my '85 RS. I'm not putting it back on after a new paint job on the bike.
I'm in Vancouver so if you know any snowbirds heading your way let me know. The exchange rate will be in your favour.
Rob

I bought a screen from Gusafson (US).  Nice product. Comes with nylon screws and nuts and a specially sharpened drill (Gustafson says the fitment is always a bit different so they don't pre-drill).

Windscreens strike me as wildly expensive for what they are.  Even given the fact that BMW spares often are breathtakingly expensive, the windscreens seem to take price gouging to new highs.
Time spent caring for what you have is time well spent.  This week I invested some considerable elbow grease polishing out some scratches in my windscreen.  A few months back I bought a kit on fleabay to fix the little wind deflector on the RS models.  It has cured the problem of breakage of the fragile  posts that allow for some adjustment.  I'm a happy rider now.  Very Happy

Brickrider - what kit? The ends of mine broke clean, so I slid a couple of rubber grommets over them to provide some friction and drilled/tapped an M5 bolt through the middle-top to provide the adjustment. I think it might just be visible in my avatar.

Hi Dai,
I went to my EBay purchase history to find the details of the repair kit.  Alas, there is no record of it. What I know//recall is the seller duplicates the odd ears on the deflector in metal, puts a pair of them together with hardware and all you need to repair the item. The repair entails cutting off the fragile posts, drilling and inserting 3mm (?) screws into the main windscreen that allow for fixing the metal ears to the wind deflector.
I don't recall the seller's name but he's located in some unusual (for me) country in central or eastern Europe.  Was it Croatia?  Bulgaria?  I simply don't remember.  Perhaps I can find some clue by going through my PalPal records. In any case, search Ebay for K100RS or K1100RS and you may come upon one of the gentleman's offerings.  He a good seller to deal with, and the kit was very reasonably priced as well.
