Thumbs down low air

The air deflctors seem to work here in Florida,of course our air is very well pre-heated! Your thin air should really flow thru!!

Thumbs up Deflectors

I bought the deflectors to push the heat away from my legs (I live in AZ), worked great but plastic shield cracked within a week. ordered a Billet set from Cycleops and they are the best. they also look great as the gloss black blends into the bike. You have to have factory set to get the mounting points as the Cycleops deflectors do not come with them. A must for me and well worth the price.

That is the first site I have seen with Victory aftermarkets. The deflectors look good. Does the wind move them? I can't get the OEM deflectors to stay tight enough.

Smile Deflectors

They only send the deflectors, you remove the plastic shields and replace them with the Metal deflectors. If your attaching points are slipping now then these new deflectors will not fix that.

Don't be afraid to trighten them as necessary to hold as fast as you want to ride. The set screw will solve your problems. Some leave them a little loose so they can adjust them with their feet (fine with mine, but if you want your plastic ones to break that's the way to do it... go ahead... so you can buy mine that much sooner!), or your may have just been set light from the factory. Try it and see. You'll find too that mine actually flow more air as they don't deflect from the wind like the plastic ones do.

Question to CycleOpsUSA

CycleOpsUSA - Will you be selling the fasteners/mounting hinges soon so we don't have to first purchase the plastic set just for those?

Hey there Cowboy (damn, that sounds just plain wrong coming from another man!),
It's actually a lot cheaper for you to go that route if done correctly.
I have no intention of making the hinges because they're too expensive to do in smaller quantities, being 4 totally separate bases, and with the cost of all the different molds to do the casting, the machining and welding of the mounting parts and all that, with the relatively small market (from a manufacturing standpoint)it's just not worth it to do them here in the USA (Vic's are done in China by Kuryakyn) and I have no intention of doing them since there's a cheaper way out for you guys anyway. Victory can afford to make 10,000 sets of them in China. I can't afford that kind of volume, now would I ever go outside the USA for any manufacturing as anything I make, I make here in pure red, white, and blue.
The plastic parts of the OEM kit are the least costly parts in the kit, with all the money for the kit being in the hinges themselves. What you do is go to http://www.surdykemotorsports.com or any other online 20% off Vic dealer and sign up your e-mail there. They give 20% off on all OEM parts, and more often than not free shipping as well. Now keep in mind that $200 gets you the entire factory kit icluding the plexi wings. As so many guys just want to replace a broken clear one the wings themselves they can quickly and easily can be sold for $25-50 each (better sold in singles) to someone on this forum or others to someone without the resources for a new kit. at $50 each, you end up getting the hinges for only $100. Is it a hassle? Maybe to some, but if I were to make them and have to sell them for $200 or so, there's no difference. At least the way above gives you $50-100 back on the purchase price, ending up significantly cheaper in the end. I have spent lots of time looking for hinges to use, but the Vision's unique fairing shape doesn't allow for the fitment of anything else I sourced out.
I hope this helps.
