http://www.craigcentral.com/bikes/vsbuffeting.asp“I am 6' tall and have a 34" inseam. The stock windshield was not terrible but I wanted a little better. I added 1" spacers and longer bolts between the windshield mounting bracket and the fairing. This moves the shield out farther and lets more air in between the shield and fairing. The result is 80% better for a cost of under $6. IMHO, it looks better then the Madstad bracket and is much cheaper. Of course there is no adjustability. But it is a large improvement over the stock mount!!”
Thanks to SCraig for summarizing many of the buffeting solutions posted at Stromtrooper.com at the above web link and thanks to whoever came up with the above solution(in quotes) since I have now installed this solution, but with the windscreen in the highest position to compensate for my 6’5” height. The result was a surprising improvement.
Using the stock windscreen, 4 longer bolts, 4 1” nylon spacers, and 4 washers that would fit into the recessed holes on the mount(all purchased from the hardware store) was all it took. I removed the cover on the back mount since it did not want to stay in place on the highest setting the way I have it mounted.
PLEASE NOTE!!: I make no guarantee of the safety or reliability of this thing as I am still evaluating it. All I can say at this point is that it appears sturdy at 65mph and that I’m really enjoying the improvement. Try it at your own risk.
P.S. It has been over 2 months since I originally posted this and have seen no signs of safety hazard whatsoever. I've had the bike up to 90mph several times and have seen no signs of cracking, loosening, etc. Still pleased with the performance, too.
