Lower Triple Tree Wind Deflector For Harley Touring Bikes 2014-Up

1winddeflectorAnother weapon offered by Küryakyn in the battle against wind buffeting. for ’14-later Harley-Davidson® Touring models redirects airflow passing between the forks downward to reduce turbulence and noise levels behind the fairing. Sturdy stamped steel construction in chrome or satin black finishes delivers a clean and functional addition to models unequipped with a factory deflector.

    I put the HD one on my 2010. Wasted my money. This one is probably just as awesome.

    No issues with lift? Wonder what sort of testing these things got? They fit and it’s chromeable??
    Wing tunnel time??
    I am curious how that placement would or could even effect buffeting? Especially at helmet level?
    What theory was applied there?

    Wind tunnel – hey you need an edit function

    @RM The theory is sound, (not saying these will work) and it’s nothing new. Kneel in front of a bike with a fairing or full shield and you’ll see the air you move through gets directed up & to the sides as it hits the fairing or shield, while air just below is pretty much undisturbed right up until it crashes into the front of the gas tank. As your bike’s fairing/shield deflects the laminar flow of air up & outwards, it creates a low pressure area behind them just as dropping a big flat rock in a still pond makes a temporary “hole” in the water that gets filled by water crashing in on all sides. With a shield or fairing, much of that air fills the “hole in the air” comes from below since it’s the shortest path compared to the air that was thrown up & out to the sides. That air circles back around and gives long hair, sweatshirt drawstrings and beards something to do-like fly forward and dance. Anything you do to airflow from below will have some effect elsewhere, that’s why the “walrus tusk” fork-mounted deflectors and Baker Wings do such a great job. Want to get rid of ALL buffeting? Get rid of your shield and run shoulder-height apes ☺

    If my memory serves me correctly…I think my older Electra glides all had this deflector. I just checked my “11 Road King, it does not have one.

    richards i bought a used front end for parts and it came with a black steel version of this item

    Hey Everyone,

    Once upon a time not too long ago, these were stock items on most baggers. They Worked, then suddenly these stopped as a stock item and were offered on the wall of chrome at your local HD Dealer.

    They Work, but there is nothing new here, they work, but one you will see.

    Lift? Really? It’s not a Freekin Wing Dude, it’s a simple deflector that does a simple assist in air movement job.

    Please don’t over think this stuff….

    no issues and no need with road glides.

    @ Steve Carr-

    I think Woody’s brings up a valid concern about “lift.” Bat-wing bikes definitely get uncomfortably “light” in the front-end at high speeds, when passing a semi at normal freeway speeds, or in a cross wind. And of course “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” If the baffle is pushing the air down, the air is equally pushing the baffle (and the front-end it’s attached to) up.

    I certainly don’t think that small baffle is going to provide a whole lot of lift on one of these behemoths but it may contribute just a tiny little bit to that “light” feeling which I personally believe is one of the leading causes of the dreaded “bagger wobble” when in the hands of inexperienced riders. I’ve seen far too many times where one of these bikes will get “light” in the front-end and an inexperienced rider will “white knuckle” the grips. This transfers, and greatly magnifies, that motion through his arms and across his shoulders. Next thing you know, that bike is shaking and twitching and getting all kinds of crazy.

    I teach newer riders that if it does get “light” or start to feel “squirrelly” in the front-end to “just let go.” I make sure they understand that when I say “just let go,” I don’t mean they should literally let go completely. I mean they should ease off the throttle and open their hands, keeping their palms on the grips and a very loose grip with their fingers. Over the years I’ve had several of these guys come back to me and tell me that their bike got uncomfortable, and where it had in the past wobbled badly, they remembered to “just let go” and the bike straightened itself right out. In time, they learn to “keep a light hand” and stop it before it ever gets started… or more accurately, they learn to “keep a light hand” and not BE the cause of the wobble.

    I’ve seen you posting for several years so I’m going to guess that you’ve been riding a long time and that you, like all experienced riders, “keep a light hand” by nature and may have never even given it a second thought. And I definitely don’t think this is the only cause for the dreaded “bagger wobble.” We all know that poor alignment, worn parts, etc, are all contributing factors it but it absolutely seems to happen much, much more often on bat-wing bikes than on Road Glides or Road Kings. Same frame, same suspension, same drivetrain, only the fairing is different; and they’re the only ones that get that “light” feeling. I know some of the makers of “flaired” windshields for bat-wing bikes even claim the added down-force provided by their windshields reduce that “light” feeling. I’ve never ridden a bat-wing bike with one of the “flaired” windshields myself so I can’t say how much they may or may not help.

    Please know I’m not trying to argue with you in any way at all, but do me a favor and give it a little thought and maybe let me know what you think.

    FWIW, the amount of lift a part like this could generate at 100mph would be measured in ounces, maybe a pound. Whether or not the gas tank was full or if the rider had a big breakfast or not would have more affect on the front end pressure. What we’re talking here is just gently tweaking the path of the airflow of a miniscule % of total airflow passing through/around the bike.

    MSP Dan, I’ve found laying down (weight transfer) works awesome too and very quickly I might add. It is hard to do this fighting every instinct because the bike has become “unruly” but it does work. I’ve ridden 1000’s of bikes during my years wrenching. laying down forward on the tank works when the “wobble” happens. Doesn’t work w/tank slappers though but then again, slappers generally happen at lower speeds and are easy to control. There is an old video out there on the net teaching the technique.

    I’m curious how lift got started on this thread.

    In Woody’s excellent description of the whole deal, lift from this wind deflector was not even mentioned.

    Steve Carr brought it up as in a response to someone, but I am not sure who.

    Anyhow, my “Buell Garbage Wagon” (85 FLHT) has one of these stock, and yes Harley quit putting them on sometime in the twin cam era, but kept selling it as an accessory.

    H-D bean counters saving the MOCO $$.

  13. 13 Dec 17th, 2015 at 12:32 pm

    My 02 FLHTPI has one.

    Speaking of off topic, what are the chromed metal triangular tabs w/large opening behind the turn signal (just below them in picture) for? I don’t recognize ’em.

  15. 15 Dec 17th, 2015 at 4:29 pm

    I thought they used to come standard on H-D’s ??
    Oh, well, if you need it you’ll buy it
    If you don’t, you won’t
    Pretty simple !!!

  16. 16 Dec 17th, 2015 at 5:30 pm

    I agree that any added lift would be almost negligible, Woody but there comes a time when a single straw is the one that breaks the camel’s back. And with a new rider aboard, the tiniest little bit of added lift could be enough to send them into the white-knuckle panic I talked about above.

    Shane, I learned “just let go” when I was trying to learn to road race on the ill handling bikes of the early 70’s. The “just let go” part I learned and learned well. The road racing part, not so much.

  17. 17 Dec 17th, 2015 at 5:52 pm

    @steal your face-

    For some reason, when I saw Steve replying to someone about lift I thought he was replying to Woody.

  18. 18 Dec 17th, 2015 at 5:54 pm

    @Woody, the triangular tabs are for tie down straps to hook through H-D part # 93500011

  19. 19 Dec 18th, 2015 at 10:43 am

    @ msp-“single straw is the one that breaks the camel’s back” brings to mind with a smile, Hunter Thompson and “The Edge” but in truth, if this little appliance is ever noticeable to the camel, it wasn’t long for this world anyway 😉
    @Dekkeron, thanks. Cool concept. If done with some forethought and taste, it would be nice to have these included on every bike/make the way jack points are on every car. Aside from all the trailer queen jokes and tirades, anytime I’ve have a tire I couldn’t plug & limp back home with, my bikes have looked really good on the rescue trailer. Only the luckiest or lowest mileage bikes manage to make it through life without a single trailer ride in my experience, not to mention the times I’ve brought a trailer along to look at a bike(s) just in case I found something(s) “I just had to have”.
