I've really gone the full circuit on these windshields. First, the stock shorty windshield had the air hitting me high on the chest/throat.
Then I put on the Laminar Lip and it raised the airflow to hit me in the upper face. Wearing the helmet on the highway I couldn't feel the wind but it was fairly noisy. No buffeting at all.
Next step was the Kawasaki +4 windshield and it pretty much duplicated step 2......uh....maybe a little lower, like on nose and cheeks.
This morning I added the Laminar Lip to the +4 windshield and that brought the airflow up to my forehead. Just running up and down the isolated street out front I wore a baseball cap and the air was hitting it right on the bill, so with a helmet on, I doubt I'll notice anything, "but" I haven't had it on highway yet. Adding that Lip on my own with no help, I had to get a bit creative......
Just to keep us all on the same page, I sat down against a wall with my lower spine as close as I could get it, tipped my head back till it touched the wall, then used a carpenters square to mark the top of my head. From floor to mark is 37 5/8".
I'm concerned about the stick-ums on the Lip. Since it's so cold here now, I used a hair dryer to warm the surfaces and give better adhesion. Experimented 1st with the digital temp gauge and the thing is like welded on.
I'd say it works, so I had at the Laminar Lip and thought I had it pretty good....but look at the adhesion of the left side stick-ums. I think it might be best to go ahead and redo those 2, but can I use them over again or do I need to use new ones ??.....or can I trust them as they are ??
I also koostum-ized my dash panel with a cheap wristwatch and temp. gauge. 3M makes a super tape that's s'posed to hold 20# per square inch. That oughta be sufficient.
