When I bought my new 950T a couple weeks ago, I had the dealer change out the stock 16" windshield for the 18" option which is probably the best fit for me (I'm 5'10" in that I can see above the shield but the wind is kept off my face and glasses. However at highway speeds - 60+ I get enough top-of-the-head buffeting to make reading highway signs clearly at distance difficult. Assuming a person has a windshield, do the lowers significantly reduce the buffeting I've described? I'm thinking of getting the Memphis shades lowers as the cost with clamps is cheaper than Yamaha. But if the difference is marginal I'd rather spend $100 on something else. Your thoughts? Also I'm thinking of getting a Clampbuster throttle assist to ease wrist cramping in my throttle wrist on long rides. They're only about $10 bucks and easily adjusted or removed. Anybody use one of those?
I have finally decided that the MS fork deflectors really work. It took me a few rides to feel the difference because the first couple tests were really windy days. I have now got up to 75 mph multiple times with air so smooth, I didn't even realize I was going that fast. Wind still hits the top of my helmet, but that's because my shield is only 17" (and slim). It hits my helmet when I'm going highway speed, but does not knock my head around anymore.
I need to find my cramp buster. Loved it on my FZ6, but these grips are fatter. I think I'll need to buy the cruiser one. I'm pretty sure they make two different ones; for sport bikes and cruisers.
I don't think you would regret buying the MS fork deflectors. They work.
