FXST Detachable Motorcycle Windshield

Learning To Work On A Motorcycle By Christy This journey started at Space Coast Harley-Davidson, March 2024, one sunny Saturday morning, where I test rode and bought my 2023 FXST Softail Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Years ago, I owned a Sportster and recently have been riding one, but I felt it was time to go to a Bigger bike, so I did. While I had been riding the Sportster with a windshield, I realized it was a definite must to have on my Softail and couldn’t ride without one. Riding on the east coast, there are times when it’s very windy and I feel the windshield protected me.

Getting Klocked

The Original Flare Windshield I have 2019 Street Glide Special, I love the look of stock OEM short windshield but it was not functional for my ride height. I did a test with a 7-inch Wave windshield, and it still was not doing the trick. It was time to quit screwing around and go the source of the original flare windshield. Klock Werks has an innovative patented design. It features “hips” at the outer edge of the shield that re-route the air to add downforce to the front of the bike which improves stability versus a stock wind shield. The “flip” at the top of the Flare™ is designed to kick the air up and back clean, less turbulent air for the rider and passenger. The windshield is made from hard-coated polycarbonate material for added durability. I’m also hoping to get a little more sound clarity from my Boom GTS system riding highway speeds.
