R1250GS(A) Adjustable Screen Strengthening Brackets     -Normally £64.40

Well, I got the new R1250GS Rallye and noticed straight away that on full extension the screen  still oscillates like a bugger when going over even the slightest rough surface. Now I`m sure this is absolutely fine but I prefer to have the screen stiffened up so it doesn`t flap around like a sail in a force ten gale.

So I`ve come up with a pair of brackets. Firstly I tried just the one bracket but the other side of the unsupported screen just carried on flapping away so I have made one for each side. The brackets anchor onto the lower screen brace assembly using two good M6 anchor points and extend up, cunningly curving around the satnav bracket. They then attach to a bracket (one each side) which bolts onto the screen itself. Its all held firmly in place by an adjustable thumb screw for easy and quick adjustment. There is no drilling by the way as the brackets all use existing mounting points.

Both assemblies are fully adjustable over the range of movement of the screen so all you have to do is get the screen to the right angle for you then fasten both thumb screws and the screen `wobbling` is drastically reduced!

Made in stainless including the fasteners with the fasteners on the bracket being `captive` to help with assembly.

Top Tip!: When installing we noticed that it makes it a bit easier (but it isn't necessary) to remove the front winglets and deflector. It just lets a bit more light in and gives you a bit more room! (remember to put them back on again though ay?)

LC Stainless Steel Screen Pivot Retrofit Kit     -Normally £14.40

This issue turned out to be another `head scratcher` for me. For some mad reason BMW in their infinite wisdom uses two circlips to hold their screen pivot pins in place. This would be normally quite fine but mine broke within a few thousand miles and the pins fell out leaving me with an inoperable screen! They seemingly just `crumbled` or snapped.

I also started to hear about other lads who had the same problem - it fast became a not infrequent issue on the new LC bikes.

I replaced them with a couple of nuts and bolts but it really was a cheap crappy way to sort out the problem especially on such an expensive bike. So at last I came up with a `purpose made` shouldered pin with a hole in the end for an `R` clip. 

All made from Marine Grade stainless steel and about 5 minutes to fit. Replaces the original stuff and much more reliable.

Fits both the GS and GSA screens.
