I’d previously tried four different windscreens (the standard BMW R12R Sportscreen, BMW’s larger aftermarket screen, and two Cee Baileys) without finding the performance I wanted. The three bigger screens diminished the bike’s looks and created significant turbulence around my neck and helmet (half-way through a 2,000 mile trip, sick of the noise and buffeting, I took the Cee Bailey off and strapped to my pannier). This slippery little fairing takes wind pressure off my torso while my helmet is in nice, smooth air. I’ve also been pleased with an unexpected but noticeable improvement of the bike’s handling in crosswinds.
Early customers have been uniformly impressed with the fairing’s design and performance.
Painting Because of my recent move to Arizona, I’ve lost my painting capability. The fairing comes unpainted in white gelcoat Light sanding before and after primer coat is standard painting practice. All BMW factory colors are available from ColorRite–expensive, but they deliver a great match.
Windscreen The Zero Gravity windscreen is provided (available in Light Smoke or Dark Smoke). Windscreen and fairing are match-drilled and nylon fasteners are provided.
Brackets and Fasteners All brackets and fasteners to securely mount the fairing are provided. Unlike any other R1200R fairing on the market, no mounting fasteners show. This adds some cost but results in a super clean look.

Two versions have evolved (I couldn’t stop tinkering). Version 1 (above) has a separable acrylic windscreen. Version 2 is a one-piece fairing with similar look and aerodynamics (see next product)
