This is my first time on this website and form. I really enjoyed finding how to change the fuel filter on my 1985 GL1200A Aspencade.
Now i would like to know if anyone knows where i can get the Wind Deflectors for the fairing? Please send me a copy of your answer also to my email if possible. Thanks

Hello and welcome to the forum.
I know of only one company that makes these deflectors and they do have them for GL1200's.

Yes : Here they are :
at $51... and JCW is having a zero $ shipping thing this month, too !!

http://www.jcwhitney.com/wind-deflector ... 027y1985j3

but a word of warning, no matter which ones you select... There is an incredible amount of force on these plates, when fully deployed , at speed..

After several years of driving around in hot weather in fifth gear ...lol...
( as in probably un-lawfully fast ,,, grins )
mine started to crack the plastic where they were mounted... from all that wind force .

These devices were not a part of the engineers original design, and the fairing is fairly thin there..

I repaired mine with a set of "T-nuts" imbedded epoxy, over a small 1/8 plastic plate and fender washers ( all epoxied inside the fairing ) . This required slightly longer bolts than standard .

Your Wing is a quarter century old, and the plastic probably has started to decay, a bit..

It would be a shame to install these, and have them crack your nice fairing...

I think its called " Preventative Maintenance "
Good luck !

Great post and most grateful for the link for the deflectors. Anyway you would be willing to share a photo of your repair? Or is it all behind the fairing and I didnt fully understand?
