I have a 2012 CrossRoad, OEM windshield, OEM seat. I'm 6'1" 32" inseam. I get a fair amount of helmet buffeting at highway speeds..60 & up.

Opinions, suggestions, experience ......to correct it ? It's not horrible , but I have a trip planned to Oklahoma and I'm thinking it might just become very annoying after 2000 or so miles?

Thanks, Ron

Welcome to the site.
I have little buffeting on my XR, but I have the victory fairing and the fork mounted lowers. If you don't have them, I would highly recommend the fork mounted lowers.
Have you held your hand out all around you while riding to find where your wind is coming from?

Exactly...however I am considering a fairing. Just not sure which one. All I want is a shell & shield. Yeah I know I could go with an old HD take off, & fab up some mounts...BTDT...but I'm gittin' lazy :p and would like to have a manufactured to fit...so to speak.

not sure which one is a good one either, but the flip or any other cross country windshield only fits the cross country fairing.

I ordered a taller windshield with built-in lowers from Cee Bailey for my 2012 XR. I'm 6' 2" with a 34" inseam. I get a bit of buffet, but certainly not to the point of being tiresome. They pricing is very good. You can get it tinted and they fit directly into the existing hardware. I went with the 23" with a Light Grey Tint and Built-In Lowers. That configuration is $200.

Good Luck.

Thank you...so do you now look over the shield ? or through it ?
I like the looks of that shield shown..and the price is reasonable.

Robb, he has a cross roads, not a cross country. I am also 6'1" tall and I chose the OEM short windshield mainly because I thought it looked better. The plus side for me is that I only get minimul buffeting because it think the shorter shield is cutting out the turbulent wind coming from under the gas tank.

Wide Open Customs has the nicest one I've seen for a XR!
You can see some on this forum or google them.
I saw a vendor selling them at a bike fest I was at in April and they had one on an XR there.

I thought all those had the stereo speakers & such in them ?

I'll check closer, maybe they have a stripped down model ?
