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.
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.
I have a heritage and just replaced my windshield with a Long Riders windshield (http://www.longrideshields.com/Default.asp). It has a slight curve at the top which eliminated not only air in my eyes but also head buffeting. Never thought about the air coming from down below.
BTW I went with the 18" I am 5'9" and have stock seat.
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:

Is anyone else experiencing difficulty getting parts and accessories thru your dealership?
I planned on having some work done over the winter, while the bike was in storage.
Parts I ordered the end of October are still on backorder!

Anyone on this forum installed a Screamin' Eagle 120R racing engine in their bike with the RX upgrade? Did you find it would only run on racing fuel, or could you tune it to run on premium pump gasoline?
I know we have had tool threads in the past. However, after using the search function I found it very difficult to locate the essential information.
This thread is intended to be very easy to find via search so lets please keep 90% of the posts tool related.
