Negative Pressure After Windshield Install 16 RG
Hey guys, I purchased a LRS 12" Stingray windshield for my 16 RG and I have installed it and I am now experiencing a ton of lower negative air coming up around the tank or so it seems.
The windshield seems to fit my height and riding posture very well, I can see over the top of the shield without the top edge getting into my view and I really like the look of the 12" height, it fits the bike very well.
After riding in most conditions (slow speed, freeway speeds, night ride and foggy morning ride) in the past couple of days I am experiencing a good amount of negative air pulsing around my gut and chest area, this did not exist with the OEM shorty shield.... I also have a set of Ebay lower fairings installed on the bike, I have tried all combinations of air ducts being open, closed, partially opened, partially closed, top vent open, bottoms closed, top vent closed bottoms opened etc etc etc. Nothing I do with the vents will make it go away.
Has anyone else experienced this ? It seems like the re direction of the air with the new windshield is pulling air up from below the tank.... Will the little air defector scoops fix this ?
I was thinking about making some shims to put behind the windshield to change the angle the air comes off the windshield at. Im no aero engineer but my initial thoughts are that this would help as I know the aero package on these Rushmore bikes is very very good in stock form.
Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.
