F800ST Windshield alternatives


Recommended Posts

My wife and I are fine tuning our preparations for a cross-Canada trip, me on my R1200RT and her on her F800ST.


With a loaded tankbag she can't get below the slipstream and therefore finds the wind, which we have had for the past two trips, quite tiring and definitely a factor in her comfort level.


Has anyone here tried a different, taller windscreen, and what is your opinion of them?


Thanks for any input.

This thread should give you some ideas.


I've tried the MRA, MRA Vario, Givi, and now I'm using a Skidmarx double bubble. I prefer the double bubble screen because it provides the smoothest airflow over the top of my shoulders and helmet.


I didn't think the MRA Vario provided any better wind protection than a stock screen, though the air flow was a little less turbulent.


You'll need a TALL screen to get out of the wind completely. Good luck.

After reading every forum I could about windshields. I went with the Madstad. I have bar risers and with the stock shield it became very uncomfortable above 60. I picked the Madstad because its adjustable!!!


Now its a pain to adjust, but once dialed in, its great. I did set it up so that I can loosen the back bracket and change the tilt about two inches. Takes under 5 minutes. Great for when it rains and then back down for sunny days.


Did I say its adjustable!!! Also it's not cheap.
