Rated 4 out of 5 by Truedog Much less buffeting
I purchased this windshield with my 2014 RK and so far (only 400 miles) I am pleased. I kept the stock windshield and have tried both. I hate looking through a big piece of curved plexiglass, so in that respect this one wins, hands down. I also experienced much more head and helmet butting with the large windscreen. With the Windsplitter, it's necessary to experiment with the angle of the vent, but once you find the right angle, buffeting is greatly reduced and I really don't feel like the wind is blasting me in the face. My previous bike was a Buell S3T so I am used to a lot of buffeting and wind blast, so this is a huge improvement for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JaxRider Perfect for full-face helmet riding; could be better secured
The OEM Road King windshield is too tall for me and creates severe head buffeting when riding in a full-face helmet. The height and aerodynamics of the wind-splitter (especially with the vent open) are perfect in shielding my torso with minimal buffeting. In fact, the wind is totally calm behind the windshield at 70+ MPH. I highly recommend this product.
The only drawback is the same that with the OEM Road King windshield: it just sits there on rubber grommets with no locking pins or securing bolts. You have to have faith that it will stay put (and it does) but I worry it would be very easy to steal - it just lifts off the mounting hardware. H-D should consider providing some sort of securing bolts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by maddog360 I do like wind in my face
This came standard on my '13 Road King. Good wind protection on long highway trips with the option of wind in my face. I like the overall "aero" style of the shield and tinted color, but don't care for the "mail box" look. It does what it was designed to do in my opinion. 5'9" and this shield is at the maximum overall height for my taste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Aaflank Good News Bad News
When I got my '08 CVO Road King I immediately replaced the stock 11" smoked job. It was useless. Since then I've used a 16" clear windshield but it produces terrible helmet buffeting at highway speed. Based on the recommendations of the HQ guys at the 110th, I purchased a wind-splitter. The good news is that airflow turbulence is significantly reduced. It also makes the bike feel even more open since you don't really look through anything. The bad news is that it puts a LOT more wind in your face. So you either have to ride with good wrap-around sunglasses, goggles, or a full-faced helmet with a shield. I opted for the latter since I wear glasses and the combination worked very well at highway speed. I was able to ride comfortably at 75 mph with almost no buffeting and pass trucks without getting beat up.
