From my experience, she won't be disappointed.

Memphis Shades also markets a product for $40 they call "Fork Deflectors", their part number 2350-0143. The mounts are sold separately. Do not confuse these with their "Lowers". The deflectors are much taller and measure 14"X5". I was curious why they say these did not fit a C50 so I tried to contact Memphis Shades. I tried several times and never received a response from their customer service department. I guess they were all out of town to receive an award for customer service or something.

Anyway, I decided to contact the technical desk at Dennis Kirk. I have ordered from these folks before and have always been pleased. I asked them if the hole size and hole centers on the deflectors were the same as their lowers. The guy at Dennis Kirk said he would have the warehouse pull a set of each and he would measure and get back to me. In less than 30 minutes he called me back saying they were identical. I ordered a set of deflectors and the Memphis Shades mounting kit for their lowers, their part number 2321-0038, from Dennis Kirk. The total was right at $96.00 plus freight.

They fit and work well. The pictures show them on my 2007 C50 with the Memphis Fats 21" screen and Cobra bars. They have eliminated almost all buffeting. Your height, helmet, posture, seat, windscreen, and general demeanor may yield different results.

For what it is worth.


Thanks! Ordered these today! Can't wait to install and test!

Finally got to test this out today...perfect weather in the DC area. Works wonders!! Even the Nolan N104 helmet didn't sound loud at all I assume due to air being funneled away from my head. Great item!

Warning for anyone installing lowers. They will require you to install chaps on your bars. First time I went riding on wet roads with no rain falling I found my shins and feet getting wet?????? Problem turns out to be water thrown up by the front tire, sliding down the lowers, dripping of the bottom and right back to my feet!!! Chaps will be ordered soon for my trike. Lowers have been installed.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

'05 Honda VTX 1300R Champion trike Kit. Mustang Seats and Backrests, Kuryakyn ISO grips, pegs, floorboards, shifter and brake peddles, Cup Holder. Universal passenger arm rests, Wolo horn, Vista Cruise, Shark 600 watt stereo, ShowChrome Risers, lots of chrome.

What a great thread! I bought the MS lowers mounting hardware on ebay some time back, and was waiting for a good deal on the lowers. Now I know I will order the fork deflectors instead, based on this new info. I have a MS Alley Cat windshield now, though untested since it came after winter hit. I already tried Big Shot and Pop Top, trying to find the right height for me. I think these deflectors will be the bomb.

This looks like it could be a big improvement over my va lowers, which I always thought looked great, but didn't make much of a difference in buffeting for me.

Will this work on a 2003 Volusia with OEM windshield? If it does I'm ordering it as soon as I get confirmation.
Thanks
