Klock Werks Windsheild

I currently have a 10 inch HD windshield.

Will the inner fairing rub on the Klock Werks windshield like it does on my 10 inch HD shield?

I like the height of the hd 10 inch and don't want any higher, but hate the look.

If the angle on the KW is different than the HD the length measurements aren't comparable as to true total height. So should I get the 8 inch or 12 inch KW?

As far as the height comparison between the HD and KW, I have no clue. I ran the stock windshield for the 100 miles on the way home from the dealer and tossed it in the trash.

As for the klockwerks rubbing, I have the 8" KW on my bike and have no rub/wear marks what so ever. At first I installed the rubber trim on the bottom but that didn't even last long enough to install all five screws hated the look. But that's just me, and I'm off a tick or two anyway I have just about 5K miles on the bike and windshield and no whistling or rub marks. I'd say find the height KW your looking for and enjoy the miles spent being it

Q, I use it as my everyday shield, it's really not as bad as most cats say it is I'll be shaving the screws and painting it to match the bike at some point so it's definitely my 100% everyday shield


Laxin, were not talking about what you got in the nightstand drawer LMFAO
