I just installed the front section on mine. Looks pretty good. I will note that this kit is standard on the r1200rt police.

Surely it's NOW that you should be fitting it.

I have a standard civilian model RT and also have a 2016 RT-P that came with the kit installed on it. I can tell a big difference when it is raining with the amount of road spray and water on my feet and lower legs. I have been meaning to get the kit and install it on my other bike as well.

It does not affect air flow in any negative way. It was designed by BMW for the BMW R1200RTW.
It has a positive effect on airflow because it reduces turbulence around the shin and ankle are of both the rider and the pillion.

For winter and rain protection on my 2007 R1200 rt I bought these several years ago.

http://www.wunderlichamerica.com/motorcycle/8600375-377.html

I give them an A+ for keeping your feet dry and diverting cold air. Easy to R&R when it warms up. I leave the brackets on all year long.

I also added these http://www.wunderlichamerica.com/motorcycle/8600312-373.html to divert air off the arms. I give them a C+ when used with a stack windscreen. I think they

are designed to work perfectly with the Marathon windscreen. It is wider and fills in the gap.

I might buy the marathon screen this year.

Very easy to install (ten minutes) if you leave the bracket in place all year long.
