Pics of aeroflow high screen + airgards on the bike

Here are some pics for those interested. This is the tall version, it is taller and wider with about 2" allround the perimeter. Don't know how it works, will let you know. Doesn't look good, especially lower side of the winglets but that's it, I did not ordered it for the look but to cure the noise in my helmet.

Let us know how well the setup works.

I have just their shields in place, both clear as my radar detector sits behind them. Your darker one may be easier to clean and won't show water spots as bad as my clear one does. It's a pain trying to clean between them. I dismantle them if I want to clean the spots off.

I didn't get the side-shields as I wondered about their looks. Maybe the clear would have been better on yours? The dark ones may look best on the darker painted bikes.

difficult to say if it looks better with dark or clear airgards. personally don't like any of the damn things. anyway dave, is your break lever touching the right winglet when steering left totally? this is what is happening here and have a problem moving the bike in tight spaces. will check how it works today.

Screen just tested. Noise and turbulence is gone. Huge improvement. Money well spent.

I have installed the windscreen but have not installed the shields yet. They look pretty good to me.

Dave, where did you get the clear turn signlas. They look really good.

I'm not Dave, nor do I play him on tv, but you can get the clear blinkers at Pirate's Lair .

Be aware that you need to drill a small hole in the bottom of the turn signal housing so they won't collect water. I love the way it makes the bike look!

Thanks Grif. I just went and looked. I was wondering why they are so expensive, then I saw that they are the whole housing, and not just the lens cover.

Thanks for the tip on the water build up.

I guess I forgot to say how much I like the look also. I am surprised at how much better such a small thing can make to the appearance.

OK, I found just the covers (I think)here , but dammit all to hell!!! I've been lusting after those stoopid Vario levers for a long time, the wife is at Port A, so I ordered them.

You have to have an amber bulb to be legal and they are a real beyotch to find. I wanted to have a couple of extra laying around for Murphy.

Hornig was the only place I've been able to find them and with currency conversion and shipping, IIRC, the ended up around 40 bones.

But, they do make the bike look kewl
