The AeroFlow R1200GS Adventure (and any R1200GS with tank guard) Touring Fairing is designed for maximum 2-up touring comfort and protection in all types of weather. In response to requests from many of our GS customers we've designed an alternative airflow solution that still provides excellent helmet and body protection but allows more airflow to the arms and lower body. Available in a smaller size, it's great for off-road riding as well. This new design is called the R1200GS/Adv Sport Half Fairing. Made from impact modified acrylic which is similar in strength to polycarbonate but lighter and doesn't require hardening.
The primary difference between the Touring and Sport Fairings is the size of the fairing "Body" (lower-half of fairing). Except for the difference in Body portions, all of the Upper Windscreens and brackets for both Fairings are interchangeable. Existing R1200GS Touring Fairing owners can convert their fairings by just mounting a Sport Body and removing a couple of brackets.
Half Fairing Upper Windscreen Portion
-The Upper Windscreen portion allows airflow to the backside of the windscreen. This airflow combines with the air traveling on the front of the screen at the "flare" or "lip", pushing the air up and over your helmet.
-Upper Windscreen portion available in 4 heights: Standard, Medium, Tall & Extra Tall.
-Heights measured vertically from top, front edge of gas tank. With bike on center stand.
Standard 16 3/4"
Tall 19 3/8"
Extra Tall 21 3/4"
The best way to determine the correct height, is to measure the heights available and go with the tallest one you can easily/comfortably see over.
Upper Windscreen width, measured horizontally with yard stick.
-Width at widest point: 20"
-Width at top: 14"
Sport Half Fairing Body Portion
The primary difference between the Touring and Sport Fairings is the size of the fairing "Body" (lower-half of fairing).
-Sport Body is 1/3rd the size of the Touring body and made of a heavier plastic to eliminate fluttering at high speeds without the need for lower or side support brackets.
-As with the Touring Fairing, the Sport body also utilizes an air intake to relieve back-pressure and provide airflow up the back of the screen which accounts for our signature smooth airflow leaving the screen.
-Fairing Body available in Clear or Smoke. Clear Body is paintable to match your bike, simply spray the backside of the Body with spray paint made for plastics
-R1200GS Sport-Fairing Upper Brackets adjustable for height and angle, regardless of bike year or model:
Existing mounting instructions have separate "Adjustment" instructions based upon the bike year and model. The R1200GS Sport-Fairing Upper Brackets can be mounted Full-Forward (previously "08-on models only), Full-Back (previously only '05-'07 models), or any position in-between, for all R12GS years/models. This adjustment option allows you to raise or lower/fine-tune screen height for best protection.
All "screen-to-bike" and "screen-to-body" mounting hardware must be loosened (6-screws) BEFORE adjusting the Upper brackets. Then Plastic must be adjusted as described, then hardware tightened in sequence as described in the mounting instructions, Step 6.
-Half Fairing will not mount properly with a Touratech Headlight Guard or similarly mounted covers.
-Non US R1200GS models may require longer turn signal stalks (Qty 2 BMW Part Number 63137667768) to fit thru the opening in the Fairing Body. You will also need to extend the wiring for each turn signal by 2".
