    In an attempt to divert the cold winter air around me . . . . I found that ZG1000 lower cowling guides will mount to the upper and lower windshield mounts. Part# 13070-1171 LH & 13070-1172 RH.

    Yes, it looks like big Ears . . . But it works great . . . Diverts the air around you very well!

    Does the cowling guides reduce buffeting cause by the wind screen? If so please describe the before and after effects at speed.
    Thanks

    Actually, my tank bag seemed to eliminate the head buffeting . . . Plus, I cut the hump out of my seat so I could scoot back further on the seat.

    The main difference is reducing the air coming around the stock windshield. I sit pretty high in my seat (where the hump was, which is thicker) . . . You may need to shorten your windshield if you are getting head buffeting. Or, try moving your tank bag forward or back.
