Wunderlich Wind Deflector

The Wunderlich Wind Deflector has been one of our most popular products worldwide. The wind deflector effectively addresses most turbulence and buffeting issues.

The biggest issue with many original windshields is that the airflow break-away edge cannot be individually defined, and the result is turbulence. We have carefully studied and then optimized and noticeably improved the airflow properties with this part. Our classic wind deflector (Version 1) has a strong and secure attachment method that is optimal for windscreens with a curved edge. The new and improved Vario Wind Deflector bracket (Version 2 & 3) makes it possible for all riders, with all windscreen shapes to enjoy the highly praised benefits that the addition of a Wind Deflector can provide. The brilliant design of the backet allows it to adapt to any windscreen as the base is adjustable from 180° to 90°. See the More Views Tab above for additional information.

We currently offer three different versions; the main difference being the size and shape of the actual deflector screen. Both styles come with the option of a Clear Lexan deflector with silver colored anodized aluminum clamp or tinted Lexan deflector with aluminum clamp anodized in Titanium finish.

Recommendation: If you are happy with the height, width and other proportions of your existing windscreen but are bothered by turbulence or buffeting, you will benefit greatly from the addition of a Wunderlich Wind Deflector.

The facts:

  • Multiple adjustments for individual needs: Angle, height and distance to rider.
  • Mounting base adjusts from 180° to 90° to fit all windscreen shapes (Version 2 & 3)
  • Optimum stress relief for helmet and upper body.
  • Removes turbulence and disturbing wind jets otherwise present.
  • Easy to adjust.
  • Dimensions (L x H):
    • Version 1 - 24.0 x 8 cm
    • Version 2 - 23.5 x 9 cm
    • Version 3 - 24.5 x 10.5 cm
  • Fast attachment and removal from screen.
  • Strong and secure attachment method.
  • Lightweight precision CNC-machined adjustment mechanism.
  • High quality anodized aluminum alloy.
  • Shatter-proof Lexan deflector screen.
  • ABE approved for use on several models. See the Applications Tab above.

Important Tip: To avoid loosening while riding thread locking fluid should be used to secure all fasteners. Available under the Related Products tab.

Terrible.

Reviewed by Jerame Kornegay from California City, CA (8.2.2015)

I purchased this product a several days ago and brushed off the negative reviews. Many people complained about the deflector/windscreen cracking during install and that's exactly what I experienced. I'm a maintainer by trade and came prepared with the proper torque wrench and was overly cautious during the install, but to no avail. I'm sure this product works when it's not cracked.

Reviewed by AJ from Vancouver, BC (6.30.2015)

Well made, easy to install and adjust. I use it on my F800ST aftermarket windshield to adjust airflow for the more upright seating that comes with bar risers. Reduces helmet buffeting nicely.

Works great!

Reviewed by Christine from Jacksonville, FL (5.27.2015)

I am 5'5" and ride a F700GS with the stock windshield. The Vario Wind Deflector was recently installed and appreciated on an 1200 mile maiden voyage. No more wind pressing on my chest at speed and a dramatic decrease in faceshield bugs! The screws did need tightening after 600 miles and I will heed the advice to use loctite. Used a Laminar Lip on a rental bike for a tour and it flew off and onto my tank bag! Rode with it in my hand for about 30 minutes until the next rest stop. Would highly recommend this deflector.

Good not perfect

Reviewed by Bryan Van Dussen from Portland, me (5.27.2015)

Installation was a breeze (not sure why others found it hard. But you'll find a good Youtube video that I found helpful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gb_lN13Vcik). I like that I can adjust the thing in innumerable ways, which helps to ensure good line of sight. I often adjust while riding. I fit mine to a z-technik after market screen for a K1200rs. I still get quite a bit of noise when the screen is extended at high speeds (70mph or higher). Given all the possible variables, I can't say that its a failure of the Vario. Indeed, I wonder if its the Arai helmet, the z-technik windscreen, or it just is. However, I am thrilled at lower speeds and when the z-technik screen is NOT extended. Its a marked improvement.

Works well on my Tiger XCx

Reviewed by David from Blount Springs,, AL (4.29.2015)

Bought this wind deflector not long after buying my Tiger XCx. Creates a nice wind eddy that lets me open my face shield up to 80 mph and keeps the bugs from splatting on the face shield. And I'm still able to look over the top of it. Recommended!

Great at reducing wind buffet with V-stream windscreen

Reviewed by Dave Wright from Salem, OR (4.27.2015)

I like this thing a lot. I had to scratch my head a bit before installing it, but once I figured it out the installation was a snap. It's a very clever design, beautifully machined from excellent materials, and looks great when installed. It dramatically reduces buffeting even in the lowest position.

Relief

Reviewed by Larry Skagen from Austin, TX (4.17.2015)

Ordered the Wind Deflector for a 1985 Honda Sabre with Hondaline fairing. Really can not get an alternative wind screen fro this bike with 5000 original miles. Have a neck problem and the full face helmet aggravated my condition on long rides from wind buffeting. So far so good. Have yet to do a long ride but what I am experiencing so far I am hopeful. Good product, well made and easy to install and adjust.

It works for me but a tedious install

Reviewed by George DeVeny from Louisville , Tennessee (4.11.2015)

I don't consider this a mature product. If it were, there wouldn't be the loose rubber pads that easily get out of place during installation. Once installed, the wide range of adjustments enables fine tuning until an optimal position is found. I'm 6'1" tall and have it currently mounted on a Tiger 800 ABS with the touring windshield. Because of its effectiveness, I had hoped to use it on one or more of my other bikes but the tediousness of installation has dampened that hope.

Does the Job

Reviewed by Lewis l from Myrtle Beach, SC (4.9.2015)

The Wunderlich Wind Deflector is a nice after-market accessory. I installed it on my BMW F800GT. Install was simple although the directions would have been more helpful written in English. The Deflector has reduced turbulence around my helmet. The multitude of adjustment points for the deflector allows you to customize the deflector's position on your windshield. Quality aluminum hardware looks good and works well.

Tall r1200gs owner

Reviewed by T. Randolph from Chesterfield, MO (4.8.2015)

I'm 6'4", and encountered plenty of wind buffeting even with the stock windshield in the highest position. Installed the Vario wind deflector, used blue locktite and was careful not to over tighten the hex bolts. Presto, problem solved, but had to position the wind deflector in its lowest position to see over the top. Well built and engineered product, very clean lines and not as bulky as the Touratech. Very happy with the product, would recommend to other tall riders.

More like a 4.5

Reviewed by Jerry from Coconut Creek, FL (4.3.2015)

I ride an XT1200Z and the stock windscreen is much better than my GS was. I had to purchase a +4 inch wind screen and then added 5 additional inches To stop buffeting. Should have bought the wind deflector. Now that I have it I have lowered the screen 2 stops. My only complaint is that if you have it in your line of sight this not as optically clear as it could be if it were thinner. Otherwise, this is one of the most functional products you will ever purchase. It can be switched between bikes making it even more functional.

Cracked the screen installing. Fail!!!

Reviewed by Jim Whitmoyer from San Diego , CA (2.17.2015)

I bought this for my 2014 R1200GS after trying a Puig screen that wouldn't stay put even with the wunderlich arm. This is a great addition for touring, but I have a couple of issues. The first one is that when installing, you have to be very careful or you'll crack it. The instructions say torque to 3nm, but I just went with feel. It cracked about an inch, so drilled a small hole at the end of the crack and filled with superglue. It looks like crap. My second issue is that when riding off-road it really is a little tall. I find myself looking around it when riding rougher terrain.

Vario Wind Deflector on 2014 BMW 1200GSA

Reviewed by Wil from Asheville, NC (12.23.2014)

Even with the windscreen at its highest point on the 2014 BMW1200 GSA, my head was in the turbulence of the airflow coming over the windscreen. (I stand 6'1" tall). So the standard GSA windscreen (not the smaller GS windscreen) was not tall enough. I purchased this wind deflector to help keep my head out of the turbulence. It was a very easy install. I have the tinted BMW GSA windscreen so I got the tinted wind deflector. Its not quite a perfect match in darkness of the tint--but not much different. I also ordered the larger deflector (the "rainbow" shape version). It looks fine on the bike. The only thing you need to be careful of-- is that the adjustable windscreens found on the 2013- GS/A models are not a very stable windscreen. At high speeds they bounce around quite a bit. With this extra wind deflector, the windscreen bounces a lot more because of the increase surface area of the windscreen and wind deflector. I might have to invest in the Wunderlich Screen Reinforcement (Part Number: 43520002) to help stabilize the windscreen. Overall, I am very pleased with the product and how it has performed. No more turbulence and a lot more quieter ride. I would recommend this part for those who are suffering from air flow turbulence.

Absolutely amazing!

Reviewed by Frank Angelone from Lawrence , KS (10.4.2014)

When I first ordered this deflector I was a little concerned about the probable cost/benefit ratio. However, after installing this little gadget I was blown away by its effectiveness. I ride a 2014 r1200gs and I just couldn't find an optimal position for the stock screen. I figured that I was probably headed down that dreaded road of trying out half a dozen different windshields before getting it dialed in to my liking. With the Vario deflector I'm able to get clean/calm air flow and still retain the cool looking stock screen. It's one of those few times when you get to have your cake and eat it too. Great product!

Best Accessory I've Ever Purchased for a Motorcycle

Reviewed by Bob D. from Glencoe, IL (8.8.2014)

I'm embarrassed to leave a gushingly positive review for such a simple little widget, but the darn thing has been a small miracle for me. I have a 2012 Triumph Bonneville SE and have been trying for over a year to find a reasonable level of wind protection for longer highway trips. Three windscreens later, I got a "pretty good" result with the multi-adjustablea Rifle SoloShield X, but I still hoped for better. By adding the Wunderlich deflector, I got pretty close to perfect. The air now flows very smoothly and just where I want it and I can adjust it as needed. For those concerned about price, yes it is a simple device, but elegant in its simplicity, and the craftsmanship, in both materials and assembly, is impressive. It is one of those mechanical items that when you hold it in your hands and work it through its range of motion you immediately know it is well made. I'll be ordering another for my second bike. Very happy to have discovered this product.
