Anyone know how to stop the air that blows through the gap on my heritage between the headlight & windsheild. Seems to always blow right in my eyes

I never noticed that on mine. Maybe it hit me a little higher or lower. If it would have been in my eyes, I am certain I would have.

Typically, with air flow issues like that, subtle things can make a difference. You might try altering the pitch of the shield ever so slightly. If that doesn't work, a different style trim ring on the headlight might cause the air to flow differently.

You might even try edging that curve with some rubber edging. It might break up the air flow enough to keep it from being a bother. It'd be a cheap experiment. If it looks like a$$, I know that they make it in chrome.

This is the stuff I am talking about.

Duct tape?
Change the bazel on the headlight so it looks recessed, the airflow will miss the slot.

Pretend that it's built-in air conditioning in the winter and a heater during the summer :)

Before spending time and money, are you sure that is where it's coming from? Try stuffin' a light jacket down there and take a ride. Sometimes air will surprise you.

If you have room try putting a tool bag there on top of your light. Could also notch out the brackets so the windshield can sit closer to the headlight. Just torch out enough for the threaded part of the bolt to go through and the head will still tighten down.

X2....unless you've tested and proven that is where the air is coming from, don't go cutting or bending anything. It also could be air coming up over the tank from around the forks. And a set of chrome "fangs" mounted on the front forks could help. I'd block a few different places with temporary fixes and make sure you're positive where the air is coming from.

get a piece of heavy cardboard, and cut it so it fits tight around the headlight, then a can of spray foam insulation [the expanding stuff that swells WAY up] spray the crap out of the whole area.
Yeah, it'll look like SH!T , but it will stop the wind :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

Harley chrome wind deflectors (58125-09B), a simple windshield/tool bag and headlamp visors solved all my problems. Good luck!

Stunning ride Classic. Looks very nice. My next Harley will look like that.
