Buffeting is a real issue on the XC. For me, the deflectors helped, but didn't cure the problem.

The factory close outs worked perfect, but aren't that prctical when it gets warm.

Cee Baileys has my bike now, ans hopefully they will design something that will work better.

My suggestion is to go to Laminar LLC I know someone who put this on their StreetGlide and it has worked wonders (under $100)

Well, their price is good but they only have one size shield, and no recurve.

I sent an email about other sizes, etc.

I was never a big fan of these add-ons. They look like you broke your shield and put it back together with some bulky screws. But if you don't mind the looks, I guess it could be a cheap way to get your shorty a bit taller.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

I have the Laminar on my VStrom, and it does help, although I am not crazy about the looks (VStroms are so goofy looking it doesn't really matter though).

I find that if I use my tall shield (which I have to look through rather than over) it cures the problem. However, I don't think it looks great either, and is awkward in the rain (not that it rains much in SoCal).

I do think the XC has the worst buffeting of any bike I can remember, even worse than my RoadGlide.

I talked with Joe at CeeBaileys a couple days ago, they are in process of making lexan deflectors to mount in between the crash bars, and also a differrent design recurve windshield. Sure hope they are successful.
