    Windscreen control lever

    I made a small 3D printed lever so I can now raise and lower the windscreen without stopping the bike. If anyone is interested I can post the STL files here or on Thingiverse.


    Video of it in operation is here:

    Good job jskene. I made a low teck version, attached with cable ties. Works well but yours is much neater.  If you were in UK I would try to buy one off you. Also, you very sensibly built it on the left. On the XR Gen2 it is on the right. I really don't know why.

    Pretty sure of you look at other BMW the screen adjuster is on the right as well(no it doesn't make sense to me either), definitely the 1250GS and probably others.

    I've updated this design to be a bit sleeker. It works just the same as the original. Very easy to adjust the windshield while riding.

    STL files are available by request.

    At least you put it on the Left hand side unlike BMW that's put it on the Right on the Gen II  :112:

    Although I wonder if the manufacturer is trying to discourage riders from moving the screen on the move.
