Wind management
« on: October 20, 2021, 03:37:59 PM »

I have a 2021 CVO Street glide. I am getting a good amount of wind coming up toward me on both sides of the gas tank. If I press me knees against the tank then no wind. If I relax my legs and let them sit naturally the wind blows up. Enough wind to lift up my shirt if not tucked in.

My bike has the chopped engine guard no lowere fairings.

This is my first bike with no lower fairings in a few years.  Did the lower fairings previously block this wind?

Any ideas? Thanks

Yes lowers make huge difference with wind management. I added them to my Road Glide even after Harley said it couldn't be done.

This works well on a Batwing as well;

Hey thanks for the reply. Yeah I tried one of those Triple Tree wind deflectors. It helps some I think. I just had no idea that the lowers deflected that much are coming up on either side of the gas tank. I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it without lowers after having them on my previous two bikes. I love the look without the lowers but the wind is getting irritating.

Yes sir, we've been spoiled. I had lowers with speakers on my 2011 CVO Street Glide prior to this bike and thought I would be ok with the killer looks of the 21" wheel and that sporty looking chopped engine guard on this one....... Not so much.

Damn it must be close to time for my eye exam. I first read that as SKIRT.

They are designed that way, to lift our shirts and show off our 24 pack abs
