Thumbs down Klockwerks GARBAGE

My windshield got broken while at the Iron Horse this past bike week. The next day, I went to the Klockwerks trailer at Destination Daytona and the salesman said the Klockwerks windshield of the same height as the Windvest I had on would give me better wind protection, let me hear my stereo better and give better handling. I was dumb enough to believe him. What a mistake. I can't hear the stereo at over 50 MPH, I have been getting hit with bugs and can't wear my favorite glasses because the wind blows them off my face. To make matters worse, when I get off the bike, my ears are ringing from the wind noise. I wish I never wasted my money.

I agree with you. I had one on my 13 road glide and it was ok but not what i expected. Just put a long ride shield on my 16 and that is night and day and yes i tried klockwerks on my 16.

My experience as well; the 8" KlockWerks shield funneled air into my face (hello turbulence, goodbye glasses), however, the 8" WindVest shield done a better job deflecting that air.

Klockwerks GARBAGE

My 2010 had a 12" KW on it when I got it and it was the first thing to go. Buffeting was horrible and I went and purchased a WV right away.

Windvest 10

The Windvest 10 on mine works fine on my 15. Very few bug get to me. The 9 didn't work as well as the 10. But anything is better than the factory. Why did they even put it on. There has to be a lot of them sitting on garage shelves.

Man I got to tell you, the 14" Sports Flair has been great for me.
I can hear my tunes and zero Head buffeting.

I don't get buffeting but would prefer a taller shield than the 14". Would be nice if they came out with a taller sport flair

I couldn't agree more. My Clockwerk's windshield is one of the best mods I did to the bike. No problem gearing the radio at all unless it is particularly windy and I am moving really fast (which is all the time.)
