    Car weather stripping from auto parts store will be quick and easy and fairly inexpensive. Get the rubber, use tape to mark where the fairing sits, pull the fairing and use the adhesive side to mount to the dash top. Probably want something just slightly thicker than the gap as you won't want too much pressure pushing back, putting sheer tension on the plastic clips in the fairing could make for a bad day.

    The gap is cricled. You can see a little light shinning at the top of the cirlce from the head light opening.
    And a freshly killed Cicada on the new windshield.

    So right now I don't have the windscreen on, and I have no buffeting issues at all. Would putting the windscreen on the bike really push so much air down that it coming back up causes so much buffeting? I don't feel the air coming up from the bottom either.

    PS, in the context of a XR = no batwing

    There will be a little pushed down but it's the meeting of the upper air flow and lower right at your forehead that likely causes the buffeting. It's odd, normally don't hear about this issue from XR with fork mounted stock windshield. Either way, it's air speed that comes up around the front of the tank and inside the legs/thighs mixing with that which comes over and around the windscreen. I notice that no matter what windshield I have, if I put closeouts on the highway bars I have zero airflow anywhere around my face.

    Damn. I'm already not a fan of the windscreen and the only reason I even consider putting it on is to help with fatigue in the long hauls. Maybe I'll look into some closeouts. Thanks for your advice

    @Dragsterman8 - is it for a Vision? I’d be interested if it’s the light smoke color

    Thx. Saw your profile that you ride a Vision. Didn’t think to look at the forum section (typically just read the “new posts” and don’t always see the specific forum it’s in).

    14" . Smoked? How tall are you? How much of MY money would it take to separate YOU from the windshield?
    ;)

    Ride safe,

    I kept the stock tall shield that comes with the CCT, tried a few other but that works best for me. I do not look through it but that has never been an issue for me in the rain.

    I have three of the LRS shields hanging on my wall. All three of them are the same size.

    The first one had a huge wave in it. I complained, and they sent me a 2nd. This one still had a wave, but it wasn’t quite as bad as the first one. I complained again.

    The president or owner of the company contacted me and said he was going to make one himself and if I had any problems to let him know. I received the third unit and, while it was much better than the first two, it was still defective. By this point I had given up.

    I did go with the Madstad and I have not looked back. It’s not the most attractive option, but by far is the most functional one.
