Windshield works great for my 6' frame, not sure if it will be tall enough for my rider. Arrived on time & in good shape, easy to install. The bonus is that it works with the HD 3 pocket fairing pouch.


I'm 6'1" and this windshield really helped out at highway speeds for me. I was concerned with my vision being blocked at first but after riding I am happy with it. Great product!


I'm 6'1" and this windshield really helped out at highway speeds for me. I was concerned with my vision being blocked at first but after riding I am happy with it. Great product!


Second one I owned for a different bike. Love it I feel it displaces the wind perfectly.


Purchased due to buffet from stock shield. 6'2" rider and tried two different helmets, wind buffet is just about gone now. Quick install. Con- With the 8.5" shield, view is distorted if trying to look through the plastic, forcing me to look around shield.


Shipping was spot on, installation was easy. Looks are great . Does what they say with pushing wind up over you and her. It has a slight vibration at low rpm's. Will try to remount shield to see if it will cure the problem!!


I tried the HD windsplitter and it was a good product but still had some head buffeting. Also, I am 6'4" and had to get a 10" model and I noticed some vision distortion while going up and down hills. The Klock Werks 8.5 works perfect. Went for a ride with 25 mph gusts and my sunglasses never moved once. Very happy with this product. '16 SGS FLHXS


Excellent windshield! Great for riders 6'4" and under.


Looks great and works great! A nice look with adequate protection.


Excellent windshield. It's the perfect height and looks great on my Tri Glide.


I am 6' 2" and ride a 2014 SGS. I have a LaPera Daddy Longlegs seat and have recently installed this 8.5 klockworks shield, everything finally is right with the world. Have tried the 7" HD windsplitter with bad results. Great windshield I highly recommend if you are in the 6' 2" range. any shorter and you will not be able to see over the shield, not a good thing with the recurve. Perfect size and looks great.


I through this on my 2015 street glide and it is perfect im 6'3" and needed a little extta


2016 Tri Glide. 6'1" tall rider. Works fantastic.


Fantastic, I've got a 2017 street glide cvo , my music hard to hear over 70/75 mph. I put the 8.5 inch screen on today and music very loud at 85 plus. I'm loving this screen . Off to spain from UK in two weeks and really pleased I got this screen on .


Beautiful fit perfect


Well things didn’t work out so well for me. I got the Klock Werks 8.5 Dark Windshield. I’m 6’4 and ride a 2017 CVO Limited, was told by everyone the 8.5 would be just kright for me. Put it on and rode 100 miles on street roads and I-95, actually it was more windy with the Klock windshield then my stock shield. Could not return it cuz I put in on the bike, so my fault live and learn. I guess I just sat up to high above and the 8.5 was too low.


Wasn't real happy. Had a lot of flex and vibration right out of the box. buffering seemed to be worse. After 1000 miles the windshield cracked at all three mounting points and yes it was mounted correctly. JP was great about exchange. Hoping I just had a bad windshield and the new one will be better


Great for around town, moved up to the 11 1/2 for long trips tho. I’m 6’1”.


This windshield does everything that they say it does! Plus when Brian Klock himself is at J&P's open house selling the product means alot.


A little hard to see through but, for the most part a great shield.


This windshield works flawlessly! It lifts all the air up and over my head.


I tryed the 6.5 looked great but I was getting some wind howling past my ears. Then I got the 8.5. Huge difference in just 2 inches. Works great in rain also you have to lead forward but it blows away all those stinging rain drops. Highly recommend. I am 6' tall and ride an Ultra. PS. The bike is much more stable at high speeds.


I am 6' and ride an Ultra Classic with a low Corbin seat. I tried the 6.5" From Klock and it worked well but I was getting a wind howling oast my ears. I went for the 8.5 and what a huge difference. wind is about a foot out to the sides of me ears and above my head. Fantastic in rain just lean forward and forget about the stinging rain on your face. Also the bike is extreemly stable at high speeds. and I can use my T-Bags. Best windshield I ever had.


I replaced a 6 1/2" Klockwerks on my 2009 Ultra Classic. I am 6' tall and this does deflect quite a bit more air at highway speeds. It doesn't do much for rain though. In most riding situation, I still look over the windshield which I like.

I love it looks great and does the job


This thing has been awesome! Would absolutely recommend this windshield to a friend.


The windshield does everything I had hoped for. Keeps more of the wind off me and still allows me to look over the top of it for better visibility.


easy install, works like advertised


Very happy with this windshield. Works great and was easy to install. Klock great job.


Seems like good quality but it won't fit with my 18 inch apes on a street glide. I'm hoping the 3.5 inch will work. This piece swoops back (toward the rider) significantly over the inner fairing.


Doesn't block as much wind as I thought it would, it does look great though.


Removed a 3-1/2" off my Street Glide and installed this one. This w/s really moves the air over my head. Running 80mph with no air moving my head around is great.


Rode for about 200 miles after installing the Flare windshield. It is an excellent upgrade to my Ultra. It installed in 15 minutes. I would recommend this windshield.


Excellent wind deflection for driver and passenger. Easy to install.


Works as advertised. Low enough that vision isn't obstructed, yet will keep the majority of the wind off your face. Got it just in time for winter riding.


Works better than stock up to about 75 mph, after that you can't tell much difference. But at lower speeds it's great. Very pleased with it and the fast shipping.


Easy installation, works as advertised.


This screen works great does what it is claimed to do but it is a bit hard to look over or through. I am 6ft2 and I probably should have opted for the 6 and1/2 inch screen instead but over all I am happy with my purchase.


Excellent windshield. The 8.5 in height is low enough to see over, but high enough to deflect air flow over my head (5'8" tall). There is some distortion looking through the windshield, but is not distracting when looking over windshield. Easy installation.


stops the wind buffetting that my stock windshield caused on my streetglide, still low enough to see over with out obstructing my view, my stereo actually sounds louder, I also think it looks better than the stocker as well.

this windshield does as advertized. the only thing I don't like about it is that looking through it is a little blurry...


great service and product.Helped with buffeting and higher speed stability.


Excellent, product easy to install, found the best price for this product from JP Cycles. As a Canadian customer I found the shipping charges a little unreasonable.


I had a stock Harley windshield before and experienced helmet buffeting. This shield directs the wind up and over.


Awesome fit. looks great.


Easy to install, works great !


love the look not sure if it lives up to my expectations but I like being able to look over the windshield than through it.


This is a very noice windshield. I enjoy being able to see over the top yet the contouring keeps the wind out of face. Well designed.


Depends on the height of the rider, it can be difficult to see through the windshield.


Excellent,does what it was designed to do.


Windsheid is solid. A little dark at night but I love it.


Product is a bit too tall. Top hits right in my line of vision. Otherwise I like the windshield.


I can see over the top now and it still blocks the wind. Hard rain still requires my helmet shield.


Arizona is a no helmet required state and if you want to ride with just a baseball cap you can--and with the Klock Werks 8 1/2 Flare windshield it does not blow off.


Actually was an easy install and works great


I had a 6 1/2" Flare on my street glide and the air hit me above the eyes. It wasn't bad until I put a helmet and then the air pushed up on the helmet making it uncomfortable. First ride with the 8 1/2 was a big improvement. Air goes completely over my head now. Also wind noise is reduced considerably. I am 6' 1" and the windshield is about at my chin. Can clearly see above it. For those who say it hard to see through, all I can say is it's not designed for that. It should be below your line of site and it will perform well. You should be looking ahead, not down.


I purchased this windshield for my 2006 Electra glide. What a difference this windshield makes; the wind noise is reduced and the bike send more stable. Definitely worth the money.


Works great! I am 5'10 and ride a 1999 ultra classic. Beautiful addition to the bike.


Very nice shield. I should have purchased the 10" as the 8 1/2 isn't quite tall enough to deflect all the wind. Other than that, i really like this windshield.


Absolutely LOVE this windshield. I can see over it with no wind buffeting AT ALL. Completely lives up to what the salesman in Sturgis said it would do. Does not restrict nighttime visibility at all. So much better than my previous 13" Air Blade.

Sgt Kuffs

Great product and good service. I am 6'-1" tall and the buffering for me has been reduced to almost nothing and I can easily see over this windshield.

Anthony C

Very nice windshield. I replaced the windshield I had. It was just a flat 10 1/2” windshield. I had to actually look through it. I can look over this one, and it does a little better. It adds better looks to my 09 Street Glide. The only thing I find that’s inconvenient, is getting into the outer pockets of my Tea Bags. I’ve been putting small things in the outer pockets. Other than that, no complaints.
