Foot air deflectors
« on: March 12, 2015, 10:15:50 pm »
Just reread the 2013 Trophy review from Rider Magazine online and it says the Launch Pack included "foot air deflectors." Yet they've never been mentioned in the air flow discussions. Did anyone who got the Launch Pack get those or was Rider mistaken? 

Thanks.

I think that Review is wrong -
Not heard of "Foot Air Deflectors"
being offered on "our" Trophy model,
although they were[/] available on
the previous Trophy 3 & 4 models.

My bike (launch model) has little black winglets by your feet.  Are they special or on all models?

Are you talking about the black rubber bumper type strips?

They are standard I think you will find.... They probably do have some effect on airflow but I can't think they have much.... At least not enough to call them foot air deflectors

Well if I had known there were foot air deflectors I wouldn't have even needed the test ride!!!!!  I would have just bought it sight unseen!  :156: :156: :008: :008: :745: :745:

I know of at least one of our members that bought their Trophy without taking a Test Ride.

They didn't get cold feet when completing the deal !  :745:

Now all our hot feet members will be asking Coconut for instructions on how to remove the foot air deflectors.  :156:
