Windscreens
by Ted Verrill

Aeroflow

The Aeroflow doesn't replace the stock windscreen, it actually is mounted on the bike using 1" diameter 3M super-velcro mounting "dots" over the front fairing of the bike. The fairing is widely praised as the best available for a K1100RS, and because of the large size also acts as a protective cover for the headlamp. The screen is easily removable in a second or two with no evidence but for the four velcro mounting "dots" per side of the fairing. The only complaints I have heard are that the screen is difficult to install, and that the mounting dots have a limited lifespan. Also, pay particular attention to the included warning about the screen blowing off of a parked bike :)
Installation: Moderate- 1 hour.
Need: As with several comfort accessories, the choice of windscreen is best made after thoroughly testing not only the stock screen but all available replacements.
Cost: $235

Parabellum

The Parabellum K1100RS windscreen bolts on to the bike as a replacement for the stock windscreen. The screens are available in both smoke and clear, and apparently are a good replacement for the stock screen.
Installation: Medium - 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Need: As with several comfort accessories, the choice of windscreen is best made after thoroughly testing not only the stock screen but all available replacements.
Cost: $229 - $394, depending on size & options.
