Sorry Roy, should've been clearer - I've got the deflectors already (they're awesome!) but I'm curious about the Mirror Extenders you're using...
Great job Cal. May I ask what are the dementions OD these deflectors and how far you've bent them out?It is winter here and after reading this thread I went out to the garage and found a piece of Acyrlic that was left over from a boat windshield I had previously made.
I believe it is 1/4" It was easy to form with my heat gun and cut with a jig saw.
The fasteners came from an old Cee Baileys bag of screws and spacers. I had to cut the spacers in half as you can see from the rough cut in the photo.
The small black spacer had the correct shape to fit in the fairing of the DL.
All in all about a 1 hour job.
Second this.I'm 5'7" with a 30" inseam. I am running the stock windscreen mounted in the highest position. I am also running the stock mirrors, but they are mounted on Richland Rick's mirror extensions.
I've been running this config for over a year. I purchased and installed Mimo256's Augustus Deflectors. This past Saturday was my first ride with them.
Wow, zero buffeting. Mimo265 nailed it.
My ride Saturday was mostly gravel and fire service roads, but I did hit a bit of interstate ( up to 80mph ). I was amazed at being able to hear not only the engine, but the chain, and the tires roaring ( Shinko 705's ). Once I met my OCDWill and we ventured off the pavement I removed my ear plugs as they were no longer needed.
I'm short at 5'7". On the interstate, when I crouched down about 2", the cockpit was silent ( even with my helmet shield up...crappy DS helmet that is very loud - but vents very well in the hot, humid Atlanta temps ). When I straightened my back, it put my helmet right in the air stream. Enough to full the vents and keep me nice cool.
Best ( and cheapest ) mod to date.
This is really encouraging... I'm 5'9' and 30 inseam, too. I have my stock screen in the highest position and have stock mirrors. My deflectors are on the way. :smile2:Second this.
As of last weekend, I was running the Givi Airflow and Adventuretech mirror extenders and still experiencing enough buffeting to be dissatisfied. I'm 5'9" with a 30-in. inseam. I ordered the Augustus deflectors three weeks ago on a Sunday and they were in my mailbox four days later. Excellent turn around time. After a longer bout of rain, I mounted the deflectors up yesterday and went for a three-hour ride. Wow! What a difference. There was almost no buffeting. I say almost because I was also testing out a new helmet with a visor, but still, the buffeting was almost entirely absent. I had my face shield up at 70 mph and was catching no wind at all. Not smart, I know, but I wanted to "see" it for myself. Thank you, Mimo265! You've created a tremendous product and changed my riding experience.
