Purchased A New Klock Werks Windshield

Purchased a new Klock Werks windshield for my new 2015 RGS.
I ended up purchasing the dark smoked Sport Flair.
Man I have too say it is fantastic.
They are made to perfection.
A perfect fit on this new bike and zero head buffeting.
Looks great as well.
Here are a few pictures on my bike.

I bought the same one from Eastern Performance, made an offer through Ebay for $200 and they took it. I am still not sure how I feel about the look, I prefer the shorter one. If it functions as I hope it will I will take that over the way it looks.

I like it. I've got the same bike & have decided on that shield as well. Just not sure on the tint. Is there much wind noise at highway speeds? The 12inch Windsplitter I have is ok on the buffeting but is louder than I care for. Appreciate any input.

wind noise

I also have the 14" sport flare in dark smoke (same color as the stock). The wind noise really varies a lot - in certain wind conditions it is still very noisy. I just put on some crash bar wind deflectors that a friend of mine here in SW FLA made - they are form fitted ABS and just slip right on and what a difference they made! I am looking for lowers - just keep missing the deals out there…
back to the windshield - I tried the harley wind splitter first - and the Klockwerks is by far better… That being said - there are some circumstances that you still get some significant wind noise - putting on the lower deflectors - all gone - all of it!
Now just need to find some lowers that I can put speakers in!

Do you have a picture of the deflectors, or a link to where others can purchase something similar? I am looking for something to stop the wind noise, but don't want a full set of lowers.

I don't have any wind buffeting at all with my new shield.
I tried the Windsplitter and didn't think much of it.
As far as wind noise, it's a motorcycle and I expect there to be's a little bit of wind noise.

Man, that looks nice. I'm heading out next weekend to hopefully order my 15 RG special and I'm going to have dealer swap out the shields. I had a windvest on my 2011, worked awesome but this Klockwerks looks way better.

After reading this thread, I went and ordered one (Dark Smoke Sport Flair)from Eastern and yesterday after work it was on my front porch (about a week and a half to arrive). Installed it last night, and I definitely like the looks and quality. Now if our North West rain would stop for a day or so, I will take it out for a test tide.
