    I just picked up an 02 FLHTCI and I was considering the chrome fork lowers...do they help or is there a better solution? I am not really wanting to go hard lowers on the crash bars so suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am really just looking to keep the wind from blowing up into my chest & face some.

    Get the nylon ones from HD. They work great both when cold or raining and on and off in a snap. Approx $60.00 when I purchased mine 5 years ago...

    I had the fork wind deflectors on my old Road King and they really work great, look a little funny but work great at keeping wind from coming around the tank and hitting me in the face.

    I had the fork lowers and the fork baffle on my '86 FLHTC. They do help, but they are not as good as the hard lowers. JMO.

    I think you can only get them in chrome now days. The black ones blend right in.

    Here some options on fabric lower. The ones I have are quick connect. I originally tried the non nylon ones but found the snaps and fit difficult.

    I agree with Lorne, dbmg and Wrenchin. The soft lowers work well, on and off in just a few seconds and store easily on the bike and take up no space.
