RallyRaid wind deflectors combined with T7rally windscreen adjuster.

I have recently fitted the T7Rally wind screen adjuster along with the Rally Raid side wind deflectors. I just had it out for a short run got up to 115km unfortunately it is a reasonably windy day so my initial assessment is hampered by the gusty wind. That aside I found with the adjustable screen fully extended along with the side deflectors I did notice a considerable reduction of buffeting on my upper chest as well as my shoulders. So my report is that the 2 combined initially are a marked improvement on the OEM setup. I am sure it is not going to be perfect but it is an improvement. Once the wind has died down and I can go for a reasonable ride along the freeway I will give my final opinion of them. Cheers all, Allen

Hey guys, I took the bike out for a good run today, a perfect day for a ride and so here are my analyses of the wind screen lifter and deflectors. I had my peek helmet on with the peek fully forward for wind effect. I am happy to say that with the screen at the top of the adjustment I had no wind at the helmet. I placed my hand on top of the helmet and lifted it about one hand higher before I felt the full brunt of the wind. I found the deflectors moved the wind away from my chest and it was hitting my shoulders this was a much more comfortable scenario for highway riding. It’s not perfect but a big improvement for me. Cheers all.

I have been looking at the deflectors as well as a taller screen- couple of questions for you. How tall are you and are the deflectors/windshield powerbronze? Also how tall is the screen? Thanks!

After a few rides now I have come up with what I think is my final assessment of the wind deflector and the adjustable windshield brackets. I have found the deflectors work a treat and the adjuster does to a degree, the problem I have found with the windshield adjuster is that if it is lifted to its fullest height the effect of the protection is negated by the gap at the bottom of the screen and the headlight. My conclusion is that it works reasonably well until it is at full height. For me it is a working alteration but when I will be planning long term and long distance riding I more than likely will purchase a one piece touring shield. For one or two day trips this setup will suffice. I hope this is of some assistance to you all, cheers Allen.
