A Few Tricks To Choose A Klock Werks Flare Windshield

One size of windshield will never fit all riders. Same with all Klock Werks Flare models. Too many windshield heights for many models. So you need to know what will work the best for you. Below their own vertical height measurements you can use as a reference.

Klock Werks set up a test pilot program with dealers allowing customers to try the windshields at no cost and no obligation. But, if you can’t get to a dealer, how do you find the right height? When choosing a Klock Werks Flare Windshield,it is suggested that you look over it. When you know where you line of sight is, you can make an educated decision about which Flare height to purchase. Klock Werks shows how to measure your line of sight.

“The ability to see over the windshield not only gives you the clearest view of what’s ahead of you, but it also puts your head and shoulders in the sweet-spot of the air managed by the windshield,” Jennifer Bainbridge, Klock Werks Lead R&D explained.

To find your line of sight, you may need an extra hand! Sit on your motorcycle and try to recreate your usual riding position. If you slouch often when you ride, take that into account. With a ruler or tape measure, have your helper measure vertically from the center of your stock windshield. Be certain the measuring device is straight as possible. At what measurement does your line of sight lie? Now that you know, choose a Flare with a vertical height that is LESS THAN that measurement.

If you ride two-up frequently, consider your passenger’s line of sight. You may want to choose an option with more coverage. Please note, choosing a Flare based on your line of sight does NOT guarantee the best overall air management possible. This method, while 95% accurate, cannot recreate the actual experience of riding. Use locator at Get Klocked to find a dealer nearest you. You may also choose to have your Flare installed by the Klock Krew at a rally nearest you or test drive a Flare on your own bike

    Great advice from a great company that sells great products. I sell a lot of Klockwerks shields and use one on my own bike.

    I’ve been running Klock Werks Flareshields since they came out with them and they are the very best. Others are just cheap imitations that don’t work nearly as well.
