Rated 5 out of 5 by TommyB Oustanding windshield
My 2012 Road King has extensive upgrades and few are better than this windshield. Harley must have spent some good R&D time in a wind tunnel because it certainly handles the wind nicely. I am still figuring out the effect of the slot on the buffeting but it does work. I typically run 75-80 on the interstate and I am very pleased with it at those speeds. At 65 mph I get more buffeting than at higher speeds but not unmanageable.
To top it off I think it looks almost as good as it performs. Looks wise it is a vast improvement over the standard shield, at least to my eye. It is much closer to a Street/Road Glide look and experience as it is lower and your head is above it. For me it breaks just below my nose when I am running my Mustang solo seat and a bit higher when using the stock Harley seat.
I typically ride without a windshield and since putting this on I have had no desire to take it off. I highly recommend it.

I took my first ride with the Wind Splitter windshield today. I must say I did not think it would stay on but it DOES. Follow directions when installing .The vent for wind direction works well once you get it adjusted as you ride. If you like wind in your face this is the windshield for you. No Head buffeting at all to mention but a lot of wind noise under the helmet . This will be the perfect windshield for around town for me. I much prefer my 22 inch high windshield if I am going to ride on the High Speed highways, simply because there is no loud wind noise and better face and eye protection.

Looks great. Solid construction.
I was very surprised that it simply "pops" into place without any latches or other securing devices. While I was concerned it would fly off, no issues.
Finally, it really needs an option to somehow lock it onto the bike. Somebody can simply pull it off and walk away. Come on Harley...I challenge you to create a locking latch so you can get another $50 from me. I'll spend it gladly.

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.
