|R1200RT Watercooled AeroScreen
The AeroScreen has several notable features incorporated
into the design that contribute to its performance. True to an
AeroFlow design, the R1200RT Watercooled screen incorporates a flare at the
top of the screen. Since airflow follows the shape it's leaving,
the AeroScreens' mildly flared top directs smooth airflow up and
over the driver's helmet while running the screen below eye
level. The smooth contours and perimeter shape ensures
turbulence free airflow and reduces back-pressure.
Due to the AeroScreens
aerodynamically efficient design they provide Solo and 2-up
riders much better coverage and protection at much lower screen
height settings than stock or other screens.
Heights available to suit all drivers
Our 6'4 beta
tester was amazed that while lifting the Tall AeroScreen he
started getting over-the-helmet airflow while still looking 4"
over the top. He never had to lift the screen to eye level to
achieve full coverage. Our local beta-passenger noticed a major
improvement in protection with our AeroScreen in the full down
position over the stock screen before even getting up to freeway
speed. When running at freeway speeds, the screen only had
to be lifted a few inches to achieve better protection than the
stock - even when compared to running the stock screen full up
Standard Height: For most drivers up to 5'-'9"
with stock seat in the low position and no bar-backs.
Medium Height: For most drivers from 5'-7" to 5'-11" with stock
seat in high setting, and no bar-backs.
Tall Height: For
most drivers from 5'- 10" to 6'-5" depending on use of stock vs.
aftermarket tall seats in high setting and use of bar-backs.
X-Tall Height: For most drivers 6'-3" to 6'-8".
Note: All screen height recommendations are just that.
Recommendations based upon what worked best for our beta
testers. Bike set-up, bar-risers, seats used and seat position
settings, as well as driver's build (height, weight, inseam,
etc.) all determine what will work best for each, individual

Hi Christine. I need to let you know how impressed I am with my
new screen (2016 R1200RT). Utterly amazed is not an
understatement. I have experimented with many different
aftermarket screens on many different bikes over the years,
always with mixed results. Minor improvements in wind/noise
protection were often accompanied by a dramatic change in the
bikes looks (“Gee, nice barn door you got there…”) When I
installed my Aeroflow screen, I was impressed at how the style
matched the bike, but was absolutely shocked at how much more
wind/noise protection this screen offers. At highway speeds
with the screen only slightly up (vs fully up with the stock
screen), my helmet is in beautifully calm air, with no buffeting
or back pressure. I can ride without earplugs, the stereo
volume is at a fraction of my normal setting and my face shield
can be open. With the screen in the lowest position, I still
get good airflow on warm days. Fantastic screen, well done!
