Hello!

Just bought a new flip up screen for my naked k100;
Screen fixing BMW-K75C-TALL1-225x300
http://www.flowrideruk.co.uk/product/bmw-k75c-flip-up-tall-screen/

I'm pretty pleased with the screen and went for a light grey instead of the stock (almost) black/brown that was on the bike. There's a good chance there will be some hiding going on in the rain and it'd be nice to be able to see through it...

The mounting holes on the screen don't match the body perfectly. I'd rather not drill the body out to get things re-alligned in case I (or someone else) decides to go back to stock. So that rules out something like these:
Screen fixing $(KGrHqRHJEEFH,sK1ZMnBR+2-wobpQ~~60_12

Unless I put the bolt heads on the inside... but that would look odd even by my standards.

So I could do with an M5 bolt with a larger head that will cover the larger holes I will have to drill in the screen. Preferably with some vibration cushioning and while I could get creative with my crappy lathe, preferably off the shelf....

any thoughts? I think I can do better than gutter bolts and tap washers!

I bought a screen for my K75 and an other for my CX500 from the same place! Price/quality is good!

Thanks.. I see they used your picture on their facebook page (I was hunting for discount codes!)

I have had to trim my screen, alter a hole and melt/bend the corners to persuade it to fit nicely. So I wont be screaming from the rooftops about the quality.

But it does seem a decent screen. The fixing kit I posted above will be fine - it arrived this morning.

I dont know if that measurement is the height when fitted or the length of the screen. I'll try remember to take a pic when its fitted if you like

I'd be interested in both side and front pics.  My turbo K75 has a C fairing w/ a Laminar Lip. A one piece option might be nice.

Pics for those asking

Screen fixing 101_1754_zps570221d2

Screen fixing 101_1752_zps5ce78d4e

Took it out for a ride today. To be honest it was so long ago I rode it, I forget what the original screen was like. Playing around in the wind it seems to offer a fair bit of protection for your body and a good bit of the helmet. Its not impossible to see through if you duck down onto the tank. At 100 (lets say kph) the jet of air hits my hat just above the visor.

The only question I'd have is regarding the strength of the supports for the fairing. I had to shim mine out a bit around the stanchions with a bit of inner tube (the whole assembly basically clamps to the stanchions between the yolks) as without, there would have been a lot of play.

Also had to trim the screen slightly to fit and heat the tips a bit to bend them in slightly to better match the curve of the nacelle. needed repainting where the original screen had rubbed too.
