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.

I suppose it's my own fault for not reading the description properly but I'd been looking at the ones for the GSA and it showed two brackets as did similar products from other manufacturers for the GS. When I looked closer; I saw Cymarc had a different advert for the GS to the GSA so I ordered the GS version as that's what I own, this is where I should have paid more attention as the normal GS version only comes with the single bracket and not two. I was surprised to find only the one bracket in the package when it arrived so checked again on the website and found it was my cock up as it does state only one bracket (in their opinion) is needed on the GS. After fitting the bracket I can tell you that most definitely two brackets are needed, the right side that doesn't have the bracket is just as floppy as it was before and now the single left bracket causes the screen to twist at any speed which I'm sure will not do the screen or the mountings any good. As with most after market products it is supplied with set screws and not torx and the one that replaces the torx in the windscreen has no step to it like the original does; so if you are not from a mechanical background and know when enough is enough there's nothing to stop you from over tightening the screw and maybe damaging your screen or the clamp that it screws into. For only a fiver more I could have got both brackets from another company but that serves me right for not paying full attention to the advert, but in my defence; it seems obvious that two brackets are needed so just assumed that's what you would get in the kit. Not good value for money and wouldn't buy it again sorry!!!
- Cymarc Response:
Hi Mick, very sorry that you were unhappy with your single bracket and we hope that you are happy now that you have received the other hand to make a pair. In response to your comment in hindsight, we actually agree with you and have removed the option to purchase a single bracket from our store (if anyone needs a second to make up a pair please contact us)
We decided to use standard fasteners as opposed to torx headed to cut down on final costs for everyone.
Passen perfekt und sehen dazu noch geil aus - ich fahre sie mit der großen Desierto Scheibe von Touratech - hält bombenfest !
Sehr zu empfehlen und klare Kaufempfehlung.
Consistent with the other reviewers, I found the fitment and quality to be absolutely first rate. Really appreciate the thought and craftsmanship that went into the design and the fabrication. I'd highly recommend. Overall, super impressed with the products that Cymark makes and will be looking to purchase some of their other upgrades moving forward.
I am running an MRA Vario touring screen on my 2014 GSA during the winter and the downward pressure is too much for the stock brackets. Not only does the screen wobble but with the windscreen in the lower range of the stock adjustment the windscreen will lower to the point it contacts the GPS at highway speeds. After installing the Cymarc brackets the issue is gone. The windscreen is rock solid and I can now run it all the way down in the lowest setting. The brackets were easy to install and look great as well.
Perfect fitment—excellent finish—better hardware than stock. Solves a really annoying problem—one that BMW should really have addressed themselves. Besides vibration I have found that the screen on my GSA lowers A LOT almost 2" due to air pressure at speed. I have to have it higher than I'd like to ride around town, and then when I get on a highway it's perfect... annoying! Problem is now solved.
If you are considering these brackets—check out the deal that includes these brackets plus pins and black deflector... I wish I had seen that before I bought just the brackets.
