    Klock Werks faring windshield yea or nay??

    So the windscreen that comes on the bike is really worthless other than looks. I have looked at all windshield out there. The Klock Werks style looks by far the best to me. Just would like to hear other folks experience. HD is a no go and Memphis Shades just didnít look that good on FLHXS to me. I like all the curves on the KW windshield. Just chime in with any experience. Narrowed it down to KW and freedom shields but really not thrilled in the looks of the freedom shield but understand they have excellent customer service. Thanks in advance.

    I have a 6.5" on my 17 SGS, I really like the pocked it creates, I get no buffeting, looking over the shield (I'm 5'7") like the looks. Only con is there is distortion when you look thru the screen, and the white lines on the road kind of "wave" as you ride which is distracting until you get used to it.

    The Clockwerks worked Just "OK" for me. I prefer the Clearview Shields out of CO., Less buffeting.

    It works great for me, I tried several brands and Klock werks shield works the best. All my rider friends are happy with theirs also, I am able to hear my music flying down the freeway with my somewhat loud exhaust as I was not able to before.

    I guess we are all different. I tried a Klock Werks windshield and the buffeting was horrible so I tried to test a taller one and the salesman told me it wouldn't help so I moved on. I do have their magnet phone mount and really like it. I then went with the Clearview for a couple of years. I have switched to the LRS long ride shields and they by far are the best for me. Running a 9 inch recurve and it works really good. Biggest suggestion is to test ride the windshield before purchase if possible or use the test and return some offer.

    I'm looking to upgrade my windshield. Again. "Upgraded" from the stocker to the H-D smoked 7 inch wind splitter. It's better, but still not good for me. I'm 6'2" and ride with a H-D half helmet. My Wife wears a 3/4 helmet with a face shield and says she noticed a difference between the stocker and the 7"... Me, not so much. My man Paul who is the owner of Street Rider of Reno, is about my height, and rocks a Street Glide, recommended The Klock Werks windshield. He told me that he and his lady rode from Reno, through Yellowstone and back, and this is the windshield that he recommends... He says that this is the only 'shield that he's tried that has been wind tunnel tested. Just curious, of all the folks who've posted an opinion, how tall are all Y'all? Because that will definitely make a difference... That said, TomA, We should get together for lunch and a ride, Brother... I lived/ worked in Battle Mountain for a year and a half, running Barite ore from Slavin Canyon down to Baker-Hughes... I loves me some Battle Mountain.

    We should get together and visit maybe next time I'm in Reno. There are a couple other members you should meet that live in Reno also. Go check out Long ride shields LRS shields in Sparks they will let you test ride the windshield before purchase. If you don't like their offerings you don't have to buy. They make the windshield right there also and have some seconds they will sell and you can't tell the difference. I'm 6-1 and I'm using their 9 inch recurve and I have their 9 inch extra wide for 2 up or cold weather riding. Slavin canyon is only about 7 miles from my house were you working for Degerstrom ??

    Put a KW 8.5 on my 2019 EGS (ok its not a Street Glide) and got to say it is hands down a more comfortable ride.

    It's a street glide just stripped down a little. If they would give you the option of the 114 they would sell a lot more I'm thinking. The electra glide started the street glide so the same and for the mod guy's it would make things more simple.
