do lowers help

I am looking to stop the wind in m face from under the windshield. I was thinking about these National Cycle lowers. Does anyone have experience with lowers on a 750 Shadow Aero?

I don't have any but have been considering them. A lot of guys say they really help with cold air and wind buffeting. Even up to your helmet area.

Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window.

I like them on my Spirit for colder weather riding. They cut down on the wind coming up off your knees and are just plain warmer in the winter.

If you try them out please give us a review. High speed buffetting on my head is my complaint.

I ordered the Memphis Shades version since the others needed their windshield. I'll review them when I get them installed. Hopefully they fit OK.

I've got the National Cycles Cruiser Shield and Chrome Lowers on my 750ACE. The shield is slightly tilted back and tall enough that I'm just looking over it when riding; the lowers aren't adjustable. Both the shield and the lowers look factory....... very, very high quality items.

As far as wind buffeting, this set up is good up to about 70mph with little or no buffeting of the helmet.

Here's a couple of pics:

I installed them on my 08 Aero to help with buffetting. It seemed to help a little bit but it just seams the helmet I have only likes wind coming full into my face. I do think they helped keep air off my legs and eliminated some of that wind from below. I recently adjusted them to fit better with my batwing. When we get some decent weather, I'll try to snap a pic.

Well I went for a ride. It was 52 degrees out. These things worked great. They keep a lot of wind off my face and helmet that came up from below the windshield. They keep a little wind off the knees as well. Iím very happy with them.

I got them from Dennis Kirk in Minnesota. They were $105 including tax. UPS shipping was free. They shipped same day and I had them 2 days later. Great service.
