Hell's Foundry brackets and plastic wind blockers?
I've searched the appropriate threads and while this question has been asked, no one has answered. Thought I'd give it another go.
I eliminated the fairing support and am using Hell's foundry support brackets and I also have a Buky 1.5" engine guard. I missed having the plastic HD wind blockers so the other day, attached the blockers using zip ties to the bar (because of the difference in bar size, they won't clip on) and cut slits in the blockers so that they could fit thru the Hell's Foundry supports and attach to the bike (if you can picture that)?
Took it for a run last night - wow, super loud wind noise from the front of the bike at 60-75 mph but it did cut down on the dirty air. Wind noise too severe to enjoy ride.
Any other options you guys might have up your sleeve other than removing the wind blockers? BTW, I also have the inner fairing support which alone, did not do the trick. Needed the added support of the HF hidden brackets.
