    I also have them...about 2 years. Eliminate wind buffeting? No. Help? A definite yes. I also installed DK wind deflectors and tank lift. This was before the JES fang install.

    I have been fighting high-speed wind buffeting on my freewheeler since I got it. I first tried the wind deflectors from DK which did basically nothing. Then added the wide version of a clearview Shield. This helps a bit but not a lot. Yesterday I received my JES wind deflectors. These helped a ton almost completely eliminates the annoying part of the buffeting very happy with the product.

    Hey Peter- Any update on using the JES fangs and any added issues from higher motor temperatures? I'm with you.. DK deflectors not much (to their credit, they mention results may vary) I've got same results so far. Considering the JES fangs... but I'm concerned about the uptick in motor temperature. Thanks for any insights!

    Nothing new to report. Product works great and the chrome is holding up fine in salty Florida. Occasionally I measure my oil temperature after a long ride by pulling the dipstick and sticking a digital probe in the sump. No difference after adding the fangs. I recommend them 100%

    I finally got a decent ride in this week and have to say the JES deflectors do their job. It may be the combo of the tank lift and the 18 recurve windshield with them. I dont know how much Ive increased the engine heat, but Im just gonna go with it.

    Just out of curiosity, are yall running them year round or removing them in summer?

    I run them year round, but I also have the Cool Master cooling fans.
