Fairing

This guy mounted a Harly Davidson fairing on his 01 V Star classic.

Windshiels buffeting

I have a tall vstar windshield assembly and no matter how I adjust it I still get buffeted unless I crouch below the shield. I would prefer to not look through the windshield at all, but in order to reduce the buffeting I have to look through the top 1 1/2 of the windshield. I am 5'9 so I dont think that it is my height. I have tried changing the angle on the windshield but that does not help either. Is there anything that can be done? Does anyone know if these windshields are designed to be looked through and not over? I am ready to take it off alltogether.

Also, has anyone attached the batwing to a vstar and how is the buffeting?


Thanks

Buffeting

I have a stock Silverado windshield on my 1100 Silverado and have it adjusted to the highest hole, the buffeting for me comes all from below, somewhat like a hurricane, Santa brought a set of lowers I hope to get on when the weather here turns something better than artic, friends tell me that will help a ton, I don't know, they say the lowers did a world of good for them, anxious to find out.

Lowers

Lowers were the answer for me on my V Star and my Stratoliner. There is low pressure behind the windshield and air comes in under it and turns up. Was OK below 65 MPH but at highway speed my glasses would shake. On the V Star I used Yamaha's chromed lowers. On the Stratoliner I used Buck's Lowers.

I've seen the Memphis Shades batwing and as just a fairing it works, but is there anything available to mount speakers and radio in? I wish I could find something like teh Windjammer I had on my KZ 1100 Kaw several years ago.

Thanks for the link. This is exactly what I'm looking for, and more.
Not bad, just over a grand with stereo with bluetooth!
