Rated 5 out of 5 by SnackDaddy Mission Accomplished! Reduces head buffeting, quiets rider bubble
After reading all the mixed reviews, I didn't know what to expect. I still had the stock 8 inch windshield on my bike. Demo'd the 10 inch Wind Splitter, and I instantly noticed the quieter, non-head buffeting rider space. In fact, while riding highway speeds, I tried to lift my head as high as I could (safely), by standing on the foot boards and raising up about half way before I could get even close to the slip stream of the turbulent air. I'm 5ft 8in, and my eye level is still about 3 inches above the top edge of the windshield. The one inch "line of distortion" that everyone talks about so much was right there, as commented on by so many, about 1-2 inches below the top edge, where the windshield curves. But for me, that distortion represented about 5 feet of actual roadway, and it was located approximately 3-4 yards in front of the bike. ***Who rides looking down, right in front of the front wheel? I was so impressed, I returned the demo windshield and bought my Wind Splitter then and there. Looks great on the new Batwing Fairing as well !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by v4bob Great windshield!
I recently purchased this windshield for my Tri-Glide. It does an excellent job of reducing wind noise and buffeting. At 5'9" I can easily see over the top of it. Yes it does have some distortion at the point where it curves, but I don't find this to be an issue for me. And have quickly gotten used to it so I don't even notice it anymore.
I'm sure this can be a problem for some riders if it is in your line of sight. But that is why H-D has the windshield demo program so you can try it before you buy it.

Being a taller rider (6'4") The stock windscreen on my SGS threw the wind right into my face. I decided to do the dealer wind screen demo to see which wind screen worked for me on my bike. The 10" Wind Splitter was the first screen I demoed . It was perfect for me. It throws the bulk of the wind over my head leaving just enough air movement to enjoy being on my bike. I like having some air moving around me, if I didn't then I would get in my truck and drive around. Its a perfect balance with this wind screen.
Also I highly recommend taking advantage of the free wind screen demo at your local HD dealer. Its free, they came out to my bike and installed the demo screen, and when I purchased the new screen they came out and installed it as well for no charge. Great program.
One negative is that I would like to see this wind screen available in a darker tint.
