I need to get the insane amount of wind out of my face when Iím riding with my 18 glide with the stock windshield still on it. I find that having the top vent open allows for more laminar air flow, and Iím for the feeling of wind flow when riding of course, but itís more obnoxious with the stock shield.
Iím 5í9Ē - 5í10Ē if that helps to compare to you all who have had this same issue.
Thanks hopefully the thread catches wind no pun Intended
my '18 FLTRX has the same issue. i put a 16" light tint Freedom Shield touring windshield on it but even that didn't stop the wind in the face.
the wind comes up under the tank and goes right up into my face. i always run all 3 vents open because that's not the problem and they add stability on the highway.
i've tried all types of fairings and wind deflectors and nothing really helps above 70 mph other than fairing lowers combined with the kuryakyn wind deflectors.
the next time you're out on the highway tuck your knees tightly into the gas tank and then open them up. you'll see where it's coming from.
i've gotten into the habit of wearing ear plugs and a helmet.
doesn't help with grass and tree allergies though.
just something to think about before you buy a tall windscreen. i like them tall so i can duck down for cover in rain or birds or road crap.
if you don't want a tall one for that protection, just get a shorter klockswerks "for style" and be done with it.
