Default continued from "heat & buffeting"

heat and buffeting

While I wait on the fabrication of the mounts for making MS deflectors rotatable on top of the highway bar. I had to play with my idea...
I used the GL1800 mirror wings to get an idea of how the setup will work. The pictured deflectors are difficult to rotate and are smaller than the Memphis Shades deflectors but they gave me a good indication of how the final setup will work.
I'm happy to say, having a deflector on top of the highway bar SERIOUSLY cuts down on high speed buffeting. Also the felt heat was never too bad during the entire time with them "up", I could have rode around without issue. But with them in the "down" position I had free flow of air and was completely cooled when moving. I'm excited to get the Memphis Shades on now, I think I finally nailed a solution. More to come

"down"


"up"
