    Put one of those $25.00 air deflectors on my ultra. The one that attaches to the front forks below the gas tank, glad it was free (christmas gift certificate). Doesn,t do anything. I guess a new windshield will be next. Maybe a recurve, I,ve read good things about em.

    I put the air deflector on my RK and I did notice a difference in the turbulence coming up and over the tank. If you ride for a while with it and remove it, you'll see the difference.

    Front wheel air Baffle, I adapted it to mine. I find a great difference in the amount of buffeting I get in the chest and face. Clear lowers help also.

    Mine works well to stop air from coming over the top of the tank.
    I ordered a CV 8" recurve and we'll see how it works on the buffeting.

    I put one on my Ultra and while it didn't stop it all, I could definitely tell a difference.

    Yes, SE.
    A noticeable increase in stability when crossing the longitudinal joints in the road
