KDPeffley said:I One of the most annoying things about it is the wind noise. I hate it.
Proper windshield size and placement is more of an art than a science......and the specifics are a little different from one bike to another.
The solution often is a tall shield angled back a bit AND lowers.
Look at touring bikes, like the Goldwing or Road KIng.
You need to use your hand(s) to find out where the offending wind is coming from: over the top, around the sides or from the bottom.
There will always be some light turbulence from the top and sides but the worst often comes up from the bottom.
If you are comfortable with your balance:
On a smooth, flat, empty road, about 45 MPH or higher, take both hands off the bars.....and it that works OK (still going straight), then cross your arms in front of you about the bottom of your rib cage. If that elminates most of the "bad" air, you need some combination of lowers.....or a fairing. That test works better with a throttle lock. You can do it one arm at a time if you aren't comfortable with "hands free".
