Aftermarket Windscreen for 2012 C14 Question??
« on: February 28, 2013, 03:48:25 am »
Do any of you guys know if it is necessary to install reinforced windshield-raising arms for the c14, in the event you install an aftermarket windscreen like the Cee Baileys?

I ask this because those who are familiar with this same action on a BMW R1200RT will know that it is essential to install the west tool reinforced arms, in order not to break the OEM struts, once you install the aftermarket windscreen on the RT.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Best,

I think the taller the shield the more force it puts on the lower mechanism. I have not heard of any issues with the C1400. But the ST1300 seems to have drive gear issues with some really tall screens.

All good input. Thanks for  chiming in guys. Looks as if the C14 doesn't have the same issue as the R1200RT, so I won't worry about it.

Thanks again.   :great:

There have been a couple of failures, bet very few. The last one I saw was on one of the two C14 sites. Very large shield, going really fast, at full height= broken mounts.
