I’ve now just about got my R1250R run in. Its gonna get it’s 600 mile service next week. Obviously, lockdown has slowed this process right down.

My other bike is a Yamaha FZS1000, and I am noticing the windblast on the R1250R. Of course, part of the reason for going naked is to try and keep speed down, plus to enjoy that raw naked bike experience.

Soon, hopefully, lockdown will ease and the opportunity for days out will arrive. That sometimes means 100 miles on a motorway to get to the area you want to visit. I figure the bike as it is, well I’m gonna struggle to hold more than 70mph for an hour or two. In Scotland that kinda leaves you in the inside lane on the motorway. I feel safer in the middle or outer lane.

So, I figure a little sports screen might hopefully allow me to cruise at 80 – 85mph?

The BMW screens are about 300 quid. The other issue is I don’t see any decent photos of them.

The only other option I see is the Puig screen. Height wise it looks about right, but its very narrow. 95 quid but maybe there is a fitting kit required?

I don’t see much else out there.

In the notes on this screen, it says “this screen is designed to fit the model without the original BMW support”. For the 1200, Puig has a version of their sport screen with and without brackets, the latter specifically for those who already have the original BMW screen mount. I’d therefore trust what they say, in that brackets are supplied with the screen for this model.

I can’t comment on the efficacy of the screen.
