Air Deflectors

Post by wilsonrcky » Thu Jul 01, 2010 4:17 am

Would like to know if air deflectors help deflect the heat from the engine away from you? I have looked at the Dragon Wings and some others.

I've got Baker Wings on my bike, and they make a huge difference. In summer, they bring cold air in toward you, in winter, they deflect it away from you. I don't know that they deflect engine heat so much as take it away with the fresh air stream, but they do make a tremendous difference.

I sure agree with our Wing Admin, they are worth there money. They sure work great in cold weather & hot for the operator.
I don't think they help the passanger that much, but I have seen posts that said they have.
I will keep mine on for sure.
