Buffeting problem and back rest
« on: November 20, 2020, 09:46:52 AM »

Hi all,

First post since joining so please be gentle  ;D

I just got a 2020 CVO SG and am loving it. The 2 issues I need to fix are:

1) I've had surgery on my lower back and it's weak, so I'm gonna need a back rest. Does anyone know where I can get one and how it attaches as there's no 'slot' between the rider and pillion seats as there was on my old Electra Glide.
2) I'm 6ft tall and am getting a fair bit of buffeting. It's not bad, but it's like it's shaking my eyes out of their sockets at anything over 70mph and it's giving me a chitty headache after about 15 mins! I was thinking of putting a slightly taller screen like a Klock Flare on, but not sure if that will fix the issue. Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance for the help  :)

CVO backrest works amazing and I recommend freedomshields.com for your new windscreen. Fantastic product that is equaled by his customer service. Both products are top notch. The other necessary upgrade is moving your passenger pegs up front to be used as highway pegs.

Nice.  Thanks.  Couldn't tell (or didn't look hard enough to find) an illustration showing that for sure at the manufacturer's site.

What adjustable foot rest are there? I bought some from Harley but they don’t move and my wife would like to have them tilted up so her foot won’t slip.

I referring to the pic with the tourpac up from the normal two up mount to what looks like a mount on the fender where the passenger seat would normally go.

Ok. I didn't post a picture of a tour pack but after looking I see the picture you are referring to.

They make 2 mounting brackets for a detachable tour pack. 2 up mount and solo mount. The 2 up mount uses the 4 anchors on the docking hardware. The solo mount uses the front anchor and the top of the shocks.

The frame mounted setup works nicely.

Any idea where I can get fairing deflectors for a 2020 CVO SG? There seem to be a lot on eBay, but I doubt most will fit and be of sufficiently good quality for a CVO. Thanks in advance @tekslk

I went from stock shield (4") to 6" (on dealership reference) didn't work. went  8"(as several have mentioned. not too high ( can just look over top edge) & I'm 6'. freedom would also be my choice & they will help you decide with height.
