Default Change to wind protection.


This is the full setup that I use for wind/buffeting control. The "GL1800" wings mounted on bars actually work well with the fairing deflectors to control buffeting. That said, there's a big problem....they are ugly and don't look right on my bike. I've been dealing with it because of the frustration I had last year with the heat issues causing me to give up first my Goody's fork mounted deflectors, then the awesome Vic hard lowers. This setup worked and was flexible so screw it...until now.
Now that my overheating cats are gone, I've been scheming and keeping and eyeball out for some wind control that works and matches the bike. I can't spend crazy money on something either, which rules out the Goody's, Ness, Vic fork mounts or Vic hard lowers.


I came across this pic(in a driving light post) a few days ago and picked up on the deflectors right away, I contacted the owner, who was very helpful(thx jaak). Turns out he's using Memphis Shades lowers with the clamps tucked under the fairing. He says they work great and are inexpensive. I did some investigating and found vindex1963 using them in a little different setup. I was on this like a fly-on-poop and ordered up a set last night for $81 shipped. I ordered the shorter lowers, like the ones in the pic but they are so inexpensive if I want a change I can just order the longer type like vindex has, using the same mount bracket.

Hopefully by next weekend the Nor'easters's weather mess will be out of here and I can report on how they work, with pics of course.
Jaak, vindex1963 and HowardGNelson like this.

I think I tried the Memphis shades first. Too bad, I think I still have everything for them and you could have had it for cheap. I should find the stuff and offer it on here

I have wonder if the CC faring was say 3 inch lower or longer in the bottom front if it would stop the buffeting.
Even though if you tuck some Duct tape and ran in from fork to fork just below the bottom of the fairing would that stop the buffeting

Comes in a lot of colors, you know (e.g., 8 Colored Rolls Duct Tape Bulk Pack Arts Crafts Wallet Creative Repairs Set USA - Walmart.com ), so it could look pretty nice.
