Anybody tried the Laminar Lip on your R1200GS or GSA waterhead?

My experience on the GT was favorable.
Before installing, I set up a bench in front of bike, nose high, with a strong fan.
Then put tell tales on screen, moved LL to various positions.
Interesting to see the effect of a slight position change.
Figured out what worked best wrt what I wanted, set the buttons and enjoyed the change.
If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

If you do add the LL, you will need to add a brace to the wind screen. if not, it will wobble at speed. Get one that braces both sides of the wind screen.

I very much liked the performance of the Laminar Lip that I had on my departed 2003 K1200GT and the one I had on my departed 2008 K1200GT.
Very effective, without having to put a HUGE screen on the bike.

Same goes for my departed 2014 RT LC.
Although, on the RT I thought LL offered a recycled 2013 RT Lip at the time. Could be wrong. It didn't fit very well, but still worked just fine.

They look a bit "tacked on".. because they are.
Oh well...
Pretty is as pretty does.
