Road Glide 12 in. Wind Splitter Windshield - Light Smoke

Part Number 57400271


Finish / Color: Light Smoke



In the world of functional performance, size does matter. After all, it's simple to understand that the larger the windshield area, the greater the amount of wind deflection. The Wind Splitter Windshield is a great look for all Touring models and is shaped for the perfect combination of effective air flow management and “wow” styling.

  • 12" Light Smoke
  • Sweeping design complements the shape of the fairing and the inner dash panel, and adds height over a traditional low-profile wind deflector in the center where it counts
  • Shape decreases wind noise and improves your ability to hear the motorcycles sound system
  • Rich smoked finish does not interfere with your forward view, and looks great against any paint color
  • Easy-to-install and features a center-mount Bar & Shield medallion for a distinctive finishing touch

Road Glide 12 in. Wind Splitter Windshield is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit & finish - works well I've had this windshield on for over 10K - I've had several on my previous Road Glides - this one works very well - looks good - good quality - I've had no issues with distortion - does an excellent job eliminating wind buffeting - I'm 6'5 have a Lepera Daddy Long Legs seat so I'm set lower and 1.5" back from stock - for me this windshield is the perfect height with that set up. I'm pleased to have finally been able to find and use an HD windshield of such quality / design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for a guy 6'5" It keeps the wind from smacking me right in the face lot better than stock for that purpose and really dose not effect the look of my bike.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Optics I had this exact same windshield in the dark tint on my 2010 Roadglide for five years, and loved it. This shield in the light tint was full of muti colored rainbows and halos way to distracting to be safe. Returned for a refund.

Interfere with 10" Klockwerks Kliphanger Bars?

Does anyone have any input on whether this windshield will interfere with higher bars?
Asked by: Srebo80
Hey Srebo80, Unfortunately, we can't validate fitment for any type of Aftermarket parts. You may want to see your dealer on this one. Thanks! Rockstar883

Does this interfere with the Chizeled low handlebars and tribal mirrors?

The mounting holes for the mirrors are such that they have already crashed into two aftermarket windshields when turning. The stock windshield is useless and you cannot hear the stereo above 30mph without some better wind deflection.

Size of stock winshield on a 2016 FLTRU?

What is the height of a stock windshield on a 2016 FLTRU? I saw the answer to one of the questions was that this 12 inch wind splitter is 4" taller that the windshield of the 2015 Road Glides, but they did not have an Ultra in 2015. Thanks!
Asked by: Stryke1
Hi, The height of a stock windshield on a 2016 FLTRU is 14 inches. Thank you for your question.

When is Harley Davidson coming out with a 12" wind splitter windshield in smoke.

I like the style of the H-D 12" wind splitter windshield but I'd like a darker smoke color instead of the light smoke which H-D currently has. I do not want to go out and get an after market windshield for my 2015 FLTRXS.

Does the 12' windsplitter for the 2015 Road Glide deflect air as well as the 15.5''?

Asked by: Huey
Hi Huey, Thank you for your question. Naturally, a larger windshield will deflect more, but some people may like a lower windshield depending on high high up they sit. I can not say one will be better than the other. I would highly recommend you contact your local HD dealer to demo the windshield on your ride. That is the best way to make a choice. Thank you
