    If anyone has fitted a dark/tinted genuine screen to a Gen 2 can they post it please, not the sport shorty, got that with the bike and it's too short.

    Can't really see how dark the tint is, can't find any on youtube and the accessory catalog as we know is shite for - well anything.

    Aftermarket pics too, but not tall touring ones, being picky now.  :152: :152: :152:

    I have the BMW "tall" screen which is not as tall as after market option but perfect for me, in comparison Gen 1 standard was too short...  Peter

    Thanks Peter, couple of questions.

    Q 1. is that a genuine BMW screen, if yes have you got the part No?
    It looks like the standard size of a stock grey/red model. The M-Sport size of course is much shorter.

    Q 2. If it's an aftermarket, what is it please?

    Many thanks,

    Charlie.
    Cheers,

    I too would like to know about this?

    Standard Sport screen is a joke!

    Hi Charlie, this is a genuine BMW screen, I don't have the exact part number as my dealer just swapped out the "sport" screen with another bike as a favour rather than me ordering it!  I am pretty sure it is what BMW call the "High Windshield" on the Motorrad configurator, described as "50mm higher than standard" and standard is higher than sport screen in the first place - I think that is how it works...  Peter
