I replaced my GSA windshield and put it on Spousal Unitís GS; she is happy. I am happier; for $135 I got a Puig Touring screen which is a big improvement over the OEM GSA screen.

I put the Puig touring windshield on my GSA last fall and it was fine during the colder weather. When It got hot, I put the original windshield back on. The Puig blocked too much air...

I use the mid height V-Stream screen on my GSA in the colder months and put the stock screen back on during the warm weather. How do you like the Puig?

Curious if you have experience with other screens vs the OEM, besides the PUIG?

I use the VStream mid size all year. Works great. Allows me to open visor and it remains quiet.

I do not. The Puig works very well for me so I stuck with it.

Thanks for the feedback. While the OEM seems ok on nice days, I'd like a bit more deflection on days like this, but still look over windscreen.

GSA Screen good

I bought a knock-off GSA screen on Ebay for around $125 (search R1200GS windscreen) and it works well, a good compromise better having a decent-sized screen and also being able to be lowered out of the way when riding in gravel, which helps to see what is immediately in front of you, and when "up" they give pretty good protection (however, it will never equal an RT.) As far as the durability of my knock-off screen, I am noticing a bit of premature (in my opinion) crazing, but not too bad.

Wunderlich tall screen.
I'm 6'1" tall with the seat in the high position.
Has less wind noise than OEM but could do with being 3" taller to be just under the eyeline
