Small wind deflectors??
« on: February 25, 2015, 01:44:08 pm »
Have seen C14's with small clear plastic wind deflectors installed and curious where those are available??  As the operator I don't have any wind problems at all with the bike but passenger does complain a bit about it and perhaps these would help??  All feedback appreciated.

I had the Bakerbuilt hand wings and took them off after truly testing them bare handed. They let too much wind pass.  The ProjektD wings look like they would fill that space better although I have no personal experience with them.  I'm not sure either would help your passenger much.  You might need a bigger windshield.

Both products are for '08-'09 only.   2010-newer have higher mirrors.    Baker built has other wings in case you didn't mean the hand wings.

There is no such thing as too much ammo, unless you are on fire or trying to swim.

I have the Projektd wings, and they help keep the wind off the hands a lot. Not sure how they would help a passenger out, though.

I think he might mean the clear plastic deflectors shown in the video of the 2015. Attached to side of bodywork.

Do a forum search for Pope wings.  John designed a home made version.

Anybody have experience with these Baker Air Wings??

In the cold temps, the top of my legs seems like the most vulnerable part of my body to the cold wind.  Looks like these may help.

I have a bigger windscreen and some hand wings which keeps my upper body well protected.

Same here on the Kawi ones.Work great.They definitely push the air away from your legs when it's cold.I've ridden mine in 24 degree weather and warm enough legs.

I have the middle set, which covers the knees and upper legs. I can't get the lower set on (that goes down in front of your feet) because the Canyon Cage. Its sitting on my bench still bagged up.

The ones I posted above are fairly new, and I will eventually get a set.

I am pretty sure the Baker wings do a better job than the Kawasaki ones. They are wider, have far more coverage, and can be tilted. So in summer you can direct engine heat away from yourself, and in winter you can block cold air.

Hey JR - Could you post some pictures of the Baker wings on your C14?  I'm especially interested to see how they mount, and how they fit with your Canyon Cages.

Thanks,

MW

I had to make a cut at the bottom corner where it contacted the Canyon Cage, so it will pivot. The cut isn't very much, doesn't change how they work.

He said that he was getting the "Kuryakyn Longhorn offset in black" in this thread: http://forum.cog-online.org/index.php/topic,44714.msg296029.html#msg296029

I also have Kuryakyns. Go to the link above for more info.  :great:

I ended up not getting the Longhorn Offsets. Turned out just using the 1" clamp and the peg itself puts it in the right place for me. The actual peg I used was the Trident ISO Dually Black with the male mount attached.

I found the black 1" clamp on Amazon, and got my Kuryakyn peg there too. If you need it, I can go back into order history and get the exact link to it. Assuming they still carry them.

Anyone have a photo of the Rivco pegs and 7/8" clamps on an '09 C14?  I would like to be able to fold them in behind the Canyon Cages when not in use.

If i had longer legs I could have moved the clamps forward, and maybe the pegs could have been "inside" the cage when
folded up. I'm not worried about it, a drop isn't going to hurt them.
