Klock Werks 2015 Windshield feed back?

Been following the windshield thread for the 2015 RG. See a few "its in the mail or due on the porch at anytime. Looking for rider experience. don't want to start collecting windshields, like before. No word from Madstad.

Thanks

I ordered one from Eastern Performance, I Have had it on my RG for about 3 weeks.The one I installed was the Sport Flare. Works great, less wind and helps with the noise. Hope it Helps.

Thanks, mind sharing which one you purchased, and size.

I got my Sport Flare on Wed. night after a 320 mike ride with the stock shield. The stock 15 shield is better than the stock toenail shield from previous generation RG's. I also have an 09 with a 14" TRSSC Cee Bailey's shield that I really like.

Fit and finish were top notch, literally a 2 minute changeout for the new shield. I t does come back closer to the rider which helps with the air flow. It also covers the screen a little more which may help with the sun glare.

As commented on the KW thread there is some vibration of the shield on decel but accel and at cruise it is rock solid. I am 6'1 with 34" inseam and can see over the shield with no problems. I bought the dark tint which is similar to the stock HArley tint. You could see through it if you had to. I can see the pavement about 50 feet in front of me which is about the same as the Cee Bailey's on my 09.

The airflow is perfect for me. I did a 5 mile quick test with just a ball cap on, cruised at 70 and went up to 85. Very little airflow around the top of the head and ears. Interesting all the airflow is coming up beside the tank. When I keep my legs close to the tank there is absolutely no airflow around the head. Relax the legs a little from the tank and the airflow tries to little the hat/helmet with slight windnoise.

I went out to Bike Night her in AZ last night and wore my half helmet. Cruising in the highway at 80 the helmet was very still.

I can definitely hear the stereo better at 60 and even at 80mph but the washout of the stereo is killing it for me.

I will def keep the windshield and am happy with the purchase.

I got my 14" sport flare last week and couldn't be happier with it - performs exactly as posted previously - well worth the investment.
I demoed the 13" wind splitter from HD and even though it was a great improvement over the stock "no shield", the Klock works is a great improvement over the HD - looks way better as well! Dark tint for me as well.

Talking true height

Could someone measure the height of the shields from say the risers (if they are still stock) the pic looks like they have different angles and im not sure how they are measuring them. Im trying to figure out line of sight and whether to get it dark or tint....thanks

I measured from the top of the speedo housing and it was exactly 12" for the Sport Flare.

I have a system sitting on my desk ready for a test fit, I'm just waiting for someone local to bring in a bike.
