Greetings all,
I have had the wind deflector kit installed on my 2017 Road Glide Special since new, and I just added factory hard lowers this morning. Has anyone had this combination and worried about excessive heat? I haven't ridden it like this yet. and will take off the deflector kit if the engine is going to run too hot.

Me too! i just put lowers on last month, had the engine guard ones on for years no issues, even removed my Sancho's wings now. Don't need them anymore no buffeting at all.

Wind deflectors

Greetings,
I'm referring to the wind deflector kit that attaches to the engine guards, HD# 57000510. After installing the hard lowers, I felt the engine heat that was absent without the lowers. I took the wind deflector kit off, but no difference in the heat. The catalog doesn't warn about using the wind deflectors with the lowers, although some reviewers do. PS, I do like having the lowers installed; much less updraft.
Thanks for feedback.

Thanks BB Bomber. I'd just as soon put them back on rather than put them on the shelf with the growing pile of unused parts live.

Nice looking bike. Do you have the wind deflectors that attach to the engine guards installed too?

Road Dog, I went with the factory lowers. They went together fine and function properly, and I like the set up a lot. I saw lots of folks liked the aftermarket ones, but there were also those who had complaints.
