Klock Werks, a motorcycle aftermarket manufacturer, famous for its patented Flare Windshield (that WRN Editor Genevieve Schmitt has and loves) is now making its popular and functional windshield available for motorcycles without fairings.
Non-faired bikes such as the Harley-Davidson Road King, Softail, Dyna, even Sportsters and Yamaha V Stars, can get the same performance and style with bolt-on ease that the original and patented Flare Windshields offer riders that have fairings on their bikes.
What’s so special about the Flare?
The Flare (reviewed here on WRN) is an original windshield of its kind that surprises riders who try it with not only how great it looks, but also with how well it performs. The innovative design features “hips” at the outer edge of the shield that re-route the air to add down force to the front of the bike. This creates stability superior to riding with a stock shield. The “flip” at the top of the Flare is designed to kick the air up and back as “clean,” less turbulent air for the rider and passenger. This translates to less “bobblehead,” when a rider’s head bobbles around from all the wind blasting her or him.
The Flare is manufactured from hard-coated polycarbonate material for added durability. “The Billboard Flare was designed specifically for bikes that don’t have fairings. We took the same concept and tested it with a variety of bikes and different heights of riders to achieve the same performance and style goals we set for all of our Flare options,” stated Brian Klock, president, Klock Werks. The Billboard Flare is a replacement shield, designed to work with factory mounting brackets and hardware.
“We didn’t just stop with the replacement windshield! Next we designed a version of our popular NAVBag to work with your non-fairing mounted windshield and factory mounting brackets,” shared Laura Klock, vp and marketing director at Klock Werks.
The NAVBag (reviewed here on WRN) is a multi-functional windshield bag that is available for use with your Billboard Flare Windshield, and other non-fairing mounted windshields. This innovative water resistant bag features a powerful magnetic closure and a special compartment that securely displays your GPS, cell phone, or other device behind a protective screen.
The NAVBag has dual accessory cable ports, and a large storage capacity for your personal items. Mounting is simple and utilizes the top center-mounting hole on the windshield.
The Billboard Flare Windshield and NAVBag are currently available at KustomBaggers.com, and at Drag Specialties dealers.
