Purchased LRS 14" Thresher for 2017 RGS to replace my 15 Harley Wndsplitter. I liked the Harley shield but did not provide enough protect for my wife on the back.

I like the Thresher and it blocks more oncoming wind and is great for the passenger BUT I am not getting a whole lot more wind coming up from below the tank. I am guessing it's from more blockage in front and a larger low pressure zone behind new shield. I do have the Harley deflectors that are on engine guard. Any easy solution to decrease wind from tank area coming up from bottom across my face?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Thanks for input, I have those in use already and they helped with the previous shield for sure. It may be that the 14 inch shield just drafts too much air away and pulls from the tank area more.

I had a 14" LRS on my 09. I bought the paddle deflectors and IMO they did nothing. I took them off. They're still floating around here somewhere.

I have a 14" Stingray and have bought many screens from James for my biker friends.

I cannot figure out the differences between the thresher and the stingray from the pictures and James has confused the situation further by telling me that they are made on the same mould!!

can someone who knows both screens pleasse give some clarity??

Thanks

You can see in the pics of the Stingray above how its wide at the bottom then "cut out" fir a sportier look. The Thresher is wide at bottom all to the top. No cut out.

Looks great man !!!!
Can you do me a favor and give me a measurement of the rise/height of the windshield from the upper vent. Rite now my sport flare is around 4.5 and I want something 2 inches higher for winter. I was going to order this in a 15" last week.

Thanks
