Klock Werx Vent Screens

I'm considering a set of Klock Werx Vent Screens to filter the '15 RGS's bug chutes. I'm just waiting to get stung by an angry bee cruising through the side vents. Is any one using them, are they worth it, any added wind noise or whistling? Let me know your thoughts and the pros/cons to this product!

I've been eyeballing those as well. Wonder how well they stay in.

Hell no don't spend the money on them. A guy on here is selling ones for around $30 shipped. I made my own for mine and 3 other sets that I've given out. I have a template you can trace to make your own if you're local. That $75 for a couple pieces of perforated aluminum is just nuts.

I haven't seen close-up of them but they didn't look like they would be tough to duplicate, and I was actually leaning toward making my own too. Template would be great, thanks! I'm in Canton also and it will probably be a rain day project after I get the new pipes and rear tire on the Road King. I could PM you when I have the materials.

If you're going to the Flight 93 run this Sat, we can take care of it there. If not, I can try to catch up locally some night. This week after work is out though. The wife has training out of town and I have doggie duty plus I've got training up in the Cleveland area so getting home before 7pm will be a challenge.

Unfortunately, I can't make the 93 memorial trip I have another commitment. I was there 3 years ago and it was still under construction, and 30 is a great ride through the mountains. I'm not worried about it this week, current project is switching my Road King over to true duals. Rear header cracked and that was all the excuse I needed! Hopefully we can connect next week sometime.

I bought a pair of the ones Major99 made. They work great no additional wind noise or whistling. Nice tight fit and they do a pretty good job of blocking most bugs. With real big juicy bugs some bits will get by, but that's not to bad.

Arrow Vent screens

I am searching for some vent screen that matches the Air cleaner screen. Anybody have any ideas on locating such a beast.

Thanks for the info. I can handle a splat or two!

I searched stainless mesh and a bunch of products came up that look similar. Maybe a local metal supplier or weld shop could point you in the right direction if you don't want to order online.
