V92TC Wind deflectors using HD chrome
Well I have been looking for fork deflectors for a while and couldnt make up my mind to try the HD chrome deflectors I had been eye ballin or go with the plexiglass that seems to be more prevelant. Found a set of HD's on EBay to experiment with so thought I would post the results here for those to look at that might be interested.
Look. Overall, I am happy with the look and the deflection. I was and am still a little curious about moving them up to the top bolt which I would need to drill two holes to make in each deflector to make them work but I think that might even give a little better deflection as it gets the top closer to the shield and also not quite the large bite it is taking at the moment. I like the angle and that it is not plexiglass. Should team up real nice later on with the fairing I am hoping.
Wind managment is awsome. I use a shorty and wind noise took a SIGNIFICANT drop as well as buffeting. Very little air coming up the chest now from the tank and when legs next to the tank much less drage.
Pressure on the forks. It could be me but I have always noticed (and read as well) that the TC was a little squirrley on the lean when up at speed a bit more and I swear this one S curve I roll through every day to work seems more stable today for some reason. Could be my imagination but I wonder if the buffeting I used to get was contributing to my uneasiness. Not sure.
Install time. 30 minutes start to finish drilling 1 hole for the center hole which was used by the lower QD bolt from my screen. I had to englagre the bottom bolt hole for the fork bolt. The top bolt was the upper to my shield quick connect so no englargment there.
Please over look the appearance of the chrome on these deflectors. 20 bucks on Ebay because I did not want to goon up a set of $100.00 deflectors then not like how they looked or fit.
Hope someone finds this info useful, if you need any more details give me a shout. Lovin my TC more and more every day! hehe
