Default Anyone using the lower wind deflectors?

Hello Team:

Installing lower wind deflectors will be enough to stop the buffeting?


Any suggestions about this ones:


Thank you very much.

I don't know about those, but I have the Vic ones and like what they do for me on my XR.

Those you have pictured along with a windshield that fits your height will solve 90% of the buffeting issues. I have those with a Madstad bracket setup with the stock XC shield (started with a Ness Flip shield 98% percent solved). Works great for me at 5'10". I don't like the look of the Madstad brackets so I am going to sell them. I have ordered a 12" long ride shield to put in it's place. I'm gonna sell the brackets for $70 when the new shield arrives if anyone wants them. The stock shield does not go with, I am keeping that.

Can I use both at the same time? the lower wind deflectors on the forks plus the Fairing Air Deflectors?

No those fork mounted deflectors will interfere with the fairing deflectors. Okay, let me be specific, its possible to use both at the same time but you will not be able to adjust the fairing deflectors and the fork mounts will be angled back some. It might be possible to trim the lower portion of the fairing defectors to work around the fork mounts but you'll have to take a lot of material off making them less effective.

And....You don't need to. One or the other will solve most of the problem.

I have the deflectors you have pictured here. They flat out work. Re- direct the flow of air from up under the fairing around you & smooth the flow nicely. Will cause you slightly more heat due to the fact they block some air but not bad at all.

Don't have a cc so I don't know. Was thinking of this the other day.
If you have some Duct tape please try this.
Take a strip of Duct tape and put it from one fork to the other just below the bottom of the fairing.
Basicly what I'm trying to say is I don't think the bottom of the fairing comes down far enough. So with one or two strips of Duct tape running from fork to fork might stop the buffeting
