    Good morning all:

    I bought my 2005 Road Star Silverado back in September to celebrate my divorce being finalized. Had the court hearing, then left work and went and bought the Road Star. I've been on motorcycles, street and dirt, off and on most of my 55 years. I had three other motorcycles before I bought this one, but they were joint property and had to sell them in the divorce.

    Anyways, I love the bike as it's the largest cruiser I've owned. Very stable at speed on the highway and looks great. The only pic I have of it is in my avitar.

            That is a nice looking bike. How do those chrome fork deflectors mount? I have a set that is cracked that I may need to replace. But not sure if I can find the same ones again.

            That's a nice scooter you got there, Bubba.

              Brad_G - They mount directly to the windshield bracket. I like them as they keep road debris from smacking my shins. I figured they were stock.

                Nope not stock equipment. Could you share a pic of how they attach to the OEM bracket?

            • #9
              Brad_G - They are fastened by 3 bolts, 2 of which are the bolts holding the quick release windshield.

                Thank you for the pics. I've seen them mount on a Harley and they mount up high like yours do. The ones I have mount with two bolts in the area where you have one. It's where the Yamaha lowers are designed to mount. But the chrome part looks identical to yours outside of the slightly different mounting.

                I'm not 100% sure, but to me it looks like they are reversed. If you swap sides it would put the fastening bolts on the bottom and hidden from view. Or at least that's how I mounted mine.

              Looks like an all stock very nice midnight Silverado. Good choice.

                                I’m new as well and saying welcome. I received a warm welcome and thought I would do the same. I have the identical bike. 55k miles and still rides and runs great!
