    Thank you, RedLdr1 for posting the wind deflector installation guide. Installation went flawlessly. I might be able to wait two hours before taking flight.
    Have a great holiday weekend.

    These deflectors look really good...with my heated gloves and the larger windscreen should make for good cool weather riding which is what I intend with this bike

    Maybe someone could post up a couple of good sized pics from different angles of a red NT with them. thanks. more interested in the look from a distance than detail.

    Like so with the deflectors installed.




    Also - how difficult or easy to install the lower cowling?

    See Here for how they look on the faster Silver NT.... If you "click" on the photo you can enlarge it.

    MacDoc, the OEM undercowl isn't really too hard to install. The instructions suck and the radiator hoses touch the support bar, but that's not an issue. The most anxiety producing part for me was drilling the hole in the lower cowling.

    I avoided that by using industrial Velcro; it has lasted three years of cross-country use with no issues.

    I also avoided drilling a hole by using velcro (after reading about that option on this forum) and it has not been a problem for me either

    Well, as far as I can remember, I didn't have the wisdom and experience of the Forum when I installed my undercowl. Best I can remember, I was the first person to put the stock undercowl on. And I'm not bright enough to think of Velcro as an alternative to a hole and the Honda rubber expander.

    I have no regrets about drilling the hole. I don't think I'll ever take off the undercowl. On the off chance that I buy a replacement NT, I'll spring for the a new undercowl from David Silver Spares.

    was just looking at the wind deflector kit.

    Just a note that came up ...looks like the Wind Deflectors will not work with the wider windscreens like the Parabellum I just bought.

    Glad I know that.

    It depends on where the windshield is wider. If you think it won't work with the wind deflectors there is a good chance it will hit the mirror stalks. That was a problem with the first generation Cee Baily windshields.
