Givi AF330 Windscreen R1200GS 04-10
Reduced wind noise over stock R12GS screen. Like the adustability
Installed easily on R1200 GS. I am 6'1" - 34" inseam. Arai RZ-Q helmet. Wind noise & buffeting was headache-inducing over 60mph on long rides with stock screen. Givi screen significantly reduced wind noise - almost completely up to 75+mph. This was true in a range of heights and angles. I still experience buffeting, but leaning forward slightly made buffeting go away completely as well. The adjustability is great to have in changing riding conditions.

Perfect GS1200 Upgrade.
This was easily one of the best upgrades I've done on my GS. Far out performs the stock shield. Easy installation, typical GIVI top notch built quality. Just completed a 2500 mile trip and the AirFlow made a huge difference in comfort, drastically reducing helmet buffeting.

Buy this sheild!
If you’re like me, you have purchased many windscreens over the years in search of the perfect one. And like me you probably have several aftermarket screens that did not fit the bill and they are now in your personal bone yard.
This is the screen that you have been looking for! It is very quiet, good quality and easy to install. It will greatly improve the riding experience of any rider whose height is within 5 inches plus or minus my height of 6’1”.
I ride a 2012 R1200gs and the engineering and design is perfect. It fits and works like a factory screen and the noise reduction is incredible. I could probably ride without earplugs for most an all day ride.
Plus with Revzilla’s generous return policy you have nothing to lose but the perfect ride.
Buy this screen and you will have no regrets. Once you try it, you will never buy anything else.

At last - a quiet zone on my GS!
The stock windshield on a 1200GS is a laughing matter when it comes to providing relief from turbulance and the resulting noise - not to mention the strain on your neck. This is a great option, and it is adjustable. Installation is not the most fun I have ever had, but it does use existing mounting hardware and the result is a solid and attractive fitting. This is a reasonable and very effective product

Excellent windscreen, ending my search for a quiet windscreen
This windscreen does exactly what I was missing with the Ztechnik Vstream and the original BMW screen that came with my '09 R1200GS. Both of those screens could not be adjusted to eliminate the buffeting. I am 5'11"/32" inseam, have the adventure seat in the high position, and a Schubert C3 helmet which is very quiet when standing up.
With the Vstream, I had reduced buffeting, but still much more wind noise, and it brought considerable instability into the bike under windy conditions due to the rather large size. With the OEM screen, I could almost adjust it low enough to have my head in the full air. Still, with the chin vent of my helmet open, I had substantial additional noise that disappeared when I closed that vent -- something that I did not experience standing up being fully in the wind.
In comes the Givi, and the airflow is nice and smooth, enough to have good ventilation, but none of the buffeting anymore. I have the mounts adjusted to the lowest position (tilted low), and the adjustable upper part of the AF330 about 60% extended. Except for extreme sidewinds, it is nice and quiet.
On the GS, it vibrates a bit in idle, but steadies once the bike is moving. Nothing that concerns me, but noticeable compared to the OEM screen.
It is very easy to remove the top section without tools. I have not been riding that way yet, but I can see where I would want to try it. This should also reduce the boxer vibration during idle.
The installation is easy, but the instructions are a bit loose and not very detailed, and the RevZilla video also doesn't help in that regard. RevZilla, if you are reading this, a nice and well-made installation video would be a nice tool to help with a buying decision.
Overall, this is a really nice product, well made, works as advertised, and looks like it will last.

Stop the roar!
I've been on a mission to reduce the wind roar on my BMW R1200GS, and it looks like I've found the solution. I'm still experimenting with settings, but the AF330 takes away a tremendous amount of wind noise (expecially if combined with the "winglets" from the Adventure model, available from your BMW dealer). Installation would be a breeze if not for the poor instructions. Build quality is excellent. The windshield doesn't improve the looks of the GS. However, if it works, I can live with it!

No noise anymore
After 4 different tryouts finally something that does the job.
I now have 4 screens on the shelf of my garage.
Original one is total crp. The Wunderlich ergo was an improvement but they've designed i wrong and the material was deteriating very was wich meant the screwholes kept getting bigger and bigger and a shakey, wobbely screen is the last thing you want. Then i used a CalSci screen wich looked like my grandpa's old scooter screen. It did not do much but totally im-balance my R1200GS. Last year i have been driving around with a MRA Vario screen but this was not perfect either.
Little cracks within a few months of driving.
Since a week i've fitted this GIVI Airflow screen and this is a whole different ballgame! SILENCE after all these years and mega comfort. Perfect adjustment system with quicklocks instead of a few flimsey screws. I am really really impressed!

Best shield value around.
I installed on my 2011 standard GS after reading many reviews in ADV Rider. A dramatic improvement from stock! Install with the adventure winglets and you will be very happy. I am 6' tall with a 32" inseam. No buffeting at all.
