                How much better is a fairing at stopping buffeting than windshields is it some what better or like a lot better, my vstar 650 classic with a 18 inch windshield was no problem at 70 but im getting beat up by wind on the roadstar at 70 and its windshield is 23 inches, i just don't understand why, im either going with medium wider windshield with lowers or the fairing this winter, i just need to figure out what's better

                  Different.... It feels about the same as far on top of helmet area. Goes above head/helmet. Seems to protect hands a little better from cold air.... Not as tall as windshield but seems to protect as well. I Do get some head shake at 90 mph steady that I don't get with windshield or without either windshield or fairing. It's not just surface area... I think it's overall width/cross section as well as weight (quite a bit heavier than windshield. When I have hands at risers and bring them back I feel turbulence But not evident when riding normally at any speed....air must come under/around and "pool" between my chest/belly and riser area.

                    So with a batwing you do not need lowers to stop buffeting?

                      I think lowers would also be good.... I've never had them on a Road Star. I rode 400 miles and started at 33 degrees ended at 50. Legs were pretty chilly.

                        Fork mounted lowers won't do much for your legs, it's mainly for waist up air flow and to improve buffeting. For your legs you want lowers that cover the engine guard.

                          I have only the tall regular width silverado windshield on now, i guess I'll try the medium wider windshield and add lowers, the turbulence is coming up from the sides of tank and hitting the sides of my helmet the fluttering wind noise is right at my ears, drives me crazy, i just can't ride with ear plugs, i use the exhaust sound to know shift points so that's not an option, and even if plugs stop noise it won't stop the slapping

                            I couldn’t carry anything in my shirt pocket till I added lowers.
