I'm 5'8 and the 6.5 inch spoiler windshield does a great job at cutting the wind and allowing me several inches over the top of the windshield. I almost feel no wind when I'm behind a semi at highway speeds and the buffer on the front end is gone that I was getting with a flat windshield. I definitely recommend this to anyone buying a batwing fairing.
Installed this on the Memphis Shades Batwing...perfect fit...easy install...great look.
I'm 5'9" and this 6.5 inch spoiler sends the air up and 'just' over my head. If you are a little taller you might want to consider the 9" tall spoiler instead. For me this one works great and I actually look over the top edge of it by a couple of inches. The Batwing and the Spoiler are a few inches shorter than the OEM Yamaha windshield that I replaced and the whole thing looks and works WAY better.
Very happy that I got the spoiler and would not even consider having a flat edge for any reason.
I had already purchaced the Memphis Shades Batwing Fairing and was very pleased. both with fairing and always Dennis Kirk's fast service and always shipping the items orderred, not a fill in like another we won't mention. have to be nice. back to the windshield, I replaced a clear flat shield, also from DK with the smoke spoiler windshield. Looks are awesome. Can't understand how a short shield with a forward curve is quieter and protects better, but I'm retired and bike alot, not an engineer. Thanks DK
The Spoiler windshield is of high quality and installed easily. I still get some buffeting but I assume that will vary from person to person. I can see over the windshield. It was installed on a MS batwing fairing, 2005 Road King, and I am 5'11. Overall a great product.
MEMPHIS SHADES PUTS OUT A GREAT PRODUCT AND I REALLY LIKE THE LOOK TWO LITTLE THINGS THOUGHT THE HEAD LIGHT OPENING COULD BE A LITTLE SMALLER FOR MY BIKE (HONDA VT1300)AND I HOPE THEY WILL MAKE A 12" SPOILER WINDSHIELD
