KW 12" too short, need options

Hi everyone,

I bought a KlockWerks 12" Flare over the winter, and I am finding it too short. At low speeds the wind is hitting me right in the forehead, and on the highway I am getting a lot of head buffeting & wind noise. I ride an 06 with the stock seat, and I am 6'1".

I don't want the madstad or baggershield. I am looking for something with more style, and less than $200.

Thanks,

Guy

I'm in the same boat. I've got a 12" KW that I had painted on the inside gloss black so it looks really good on the bike but I'm 6'3". With the stock seat it's bearable but not great but with my hammock seat it's starting to get annoying with the buffeting. The mad stad is starting to grow on me but haven't convinced myself to by one yet.

Thanks for the info. I have been looking at them. $50 for shipping on top of the price makes me think twice.

It is the light smoke one. I will hope to find someone to trade a cee baileys or wind vest before I put it up for sale. I will let you know.

Why dont you check out the KW 14" Flare? I am 6', and ride a 2013 FLTRU with stock seat. I am really happy with it.

I thought about that, however by the time I include shipping & exchange I would be in the $300 range, and that is about $100 more than I want to spend.

I am leaning towards a Wind Vest or a Mako in a 14".
