hellcat on a V Star 650 Custom
Just got my V Star a few weeks ago and am loving it. Only thing is the freeway riding, I feel like a sail - all that wind pounding my chest takes the fun out of it. Fortunately, I'm mainly doing the local foothills at speed of 50 max.
Anyway, I bought a Memphis Shades Hellcat and took it out today for the first time. Before, "head buffeting" was an alien concept. Now I get it. And it seems to start as early as 35mph and gets worse from there. I tried four different positions, at the limits of the adjustments, and could not come close to eliminating it. Maybe I'm too tall at 5'10", I don't know.
Would it be better to angle it sharply (45 degrees) towards the rider, or a more upright position? And how close to the headlight should it be? I've seen recommendations of 3" above headlight. That seems unlikely, and at any rate, hard to do with the hardware that came with it.
Anyone try a Hellcat on a 650?
Btw, before buying, I read hundreds of hellcat reviews (yes, hundreds!) on the hog forum, and although a few mention the problem I'm experiencing, most people seem to love it.
