GAD wind deflectors?

Hi, anyone with a RGC try these? Did they make any difference? Also do you know if theye wii fit with my Lindbergh mustache engine guard? Mfr. said they should since they are not mounted to the guard, but to the fairing. Thanks

I only have the Lower Triple Tree Deflector... Honestly I cant tell if it really makes much of a difference or not.. Maybe just a little less air coming from under the fairing..

I'm using the GADS with my Buky Engine Guard with no clearance issues. Added Sanchos Wings over the winter and have had a couple of opportunities to ride (before our current cold weather came in - snow flakes yesterday for crying out loud!) and I think the combo is working very well. With the Buky engine guard I had to give up the HD paddles on the OEM guard.

Thanks. I ended up getting Harleys wind deflectors that go on the engine guard. It fits fine and offers some improvement.

I use both HD crash bar baffles and GADS in the summer when I remove my lowers. They help .

I have HD's dog dish in the same location and agree, it does the least of all the other deflectors I have.

+1 ^^
I did the same thing as Gary.
When it was getting up over 100 degrees I took off the lower fairings and put on the Gads, I use the HD crash bar deflectors all the time. The Gads did help some with buffeting but not as much as the lower fairings do. I do get a lot more air flow around my legs with the Gads on then I do with the fairing lowers but when it is 100 to 120 degrees out you need all the air flow you can get.

+ 2, when I take off the lowers they make a difference. I've had Sancho's deflectors since I can't remember, they help as well.

Thanks, so do you thing the GAD's are worth putting on in addition to Harley lower air deflectors? Is it worth another $40?
