    I installed .0.1 in Jan '18 and still run it. PM your email address, give me a couple of days to get round to downloading a copy (work interfering with play) and I'll send you the file (Lowestoft).

    I have a 5" Freedom Shield, it's thicker and far superior quality to HD's Windsplitter. It works most effectively with the vent open.

    It's the same on my 2015, another annoying quirk of Harley's electronic system- like not displaying current time on the Satnav -and no way to change it.

    I'm about the same build as you and have 12" Nitrons on the rear - brilliant. Fitted 1" lowered Legend Axeos on the front last winter - now even better.
