Touring wind screen

been years since i last posted.........still have my 2013

? being when Yamaha touring screen is ALL the way up..............its perfect in height

i can see over it especially when it rains

yet what iv always noticed is the turbulence comes from

the gap at the level o the handlebars & mirrors ( 10-12 inch gap there )

most noticeable in the winter !!

IS there a Screen that blocks that gap ????

the Touring is NOT the widest nor the Largest screen

Hi Road Dog,

Pretty sure that the gap is designed (using wind tunnels and such) to minimize disturbance created at high speeds (once you are traveling at high speed it's not as simple as sitting in front of your household fan and holding something up to block the air)

I'm sure others with more knowledge will be along shortly.

I don’t have that problem. Blocking the tunnel in the “beak” of the bike does have some felt effect, though. Several of us block that when the weather gets cold.

No commercials. No dictators.

I agree with Red Rock. If there isn't any way for the pressure in front and behind the shield to equalize, the turbulence will be unbearable. For instance, the latch holding open the vent on one side of my Road Glide broke (as Harley stuff will do) and at speed it felt like someone was very quickly slapping me on the side of the helmet. I had to take duct tape and tape the vent open until I can get it fixed. I have a V-Stream shield on my '13 and notice turbulence mostly when the wind is coming from the side, not from the front. The turbulence from the front is the worst when behind a truck with an odd-shaped load, like a bulldozer on a low boy.
