Adding Air Vents
« on: December 27, 2015, 04:35:41 pm »
I don't think I would have seen myself complaining about wind protection/air deflection that was too good on any motorcycle, but here I am. 

I really enjoy the wind protection the shield provides, especially the reduced noise when the screen is up. But, when it is up you are essentially without ventilation. 

Has anyone here put any thought and effort into installing some sort of vent or deflectors to channel air into the cockpit - say at chest/gut level?  Maybe some sort of adjustable winglets at the side of the shield, top of the mirrors or something?  I've seen in my forum search some talk of cutting the screen (including a pic of a hole cut in the lower portion), but I am not too fond of losing any of the available protection.  Any ideas folks?  :084:

Hey Phil, try searching Goldwing winglets and or wind deflector kits, seems to be a few to choose from there. Let us know if you come up with a workable solution thanks

I think Baker Air Wings would work if you are willing to drill some holes.

I am now using a Cee Bailey windshield and feel I get more air to my shoulders.

Thanks for the link, the video is a masterpiece; he has one of those most boring voices.  I bet he is the CEO of the company and was horrified at the price of a professional voice over and said; " I can do that ". :110:

Good on him to keep the price down and help send me off for my nap!

Love, light and peace,

Dave

Luckycharms, thanks for the pointer. And Atrophy, thanks for doing the leg work on this. I'll call Bruce Baker. Looks like you guys have a solution.  I do have a question for you Atrophy; have you put them on top of the mirrors? I suspect it wouldn't look too hot, but just curious if they'll fit there too. Thanks!  :821:

I am new to big touring bikes and was shocked how hot I get on a nice 85 degree day.  My other bikes are a delight but I am sweating big time behind the fairing on the Trophy.  Not quite ready to modify a very good looking bike quite yet.
