Default Fairing Air Deflector vs Windshield

What would be a solid first step?

New windshield for sure . The fairing winglets will help minimally , they are primarily designed to work with the Victory Hard Lowers .

Mags is correct. Ensure the windshield you buy has a "flip" on it. I only have experience with my Ness shield... However I really like the looks of the klock works units. I hate tall windshields as they lose the sleek look of the XC. I have the fairing winglets and they do work in the open position to redirect smooth air, and minimize dirty air.

I feel the same on the windshield! What winglets do you have?

I just pulled the Klock Werks (with a flip) windshield off my XC because I was getting a lot of buffeting above 60 mph... Replaced it with a Madstad unit--brackets and windshield and have all but eliminated the dirty air. I have no other winglets or shields on it. Just my 2 cents

Madstad is hideous though... I am too fucking vain. I hate looking silly.

Thanks for the input! Is the madstad a windshield or just the brackets to make the stocker stick up high?

I feel bad agreeing but they look awful. I'll take my windvest windshield and fork air deflectors anytime.
