Wind Deflectors For Feet?

Does anyone know of a way to block some of the wind around the foot/lower shin area? Maybe something that could attach to the radiator cover or even to the foot pegs?
I have forward controls because I'm 6'5, but having the feet forward really makes the wind tiring cruising 70+.

Any other suggestions appreciated as well. Thanks!

These bike are tough for us tall guys! What forward controls do you have? I just put on a set of 4" extended controls from altered state design, I love them! Interested to see if anyone has any ideas for a deflector on here? Cant imagine they'll look very good though

Only thing I can think of would be getting a set of crash bars and putting some lowers on them. Might help.

I'm not a tall guy but at highway speeds I just use the rear pegs.

You don't have to be tall to have wind problems. I had problems with the wind blowing my feet off the stock pegs.

I solved the issue by installing floor boards. Go ahead and snicker but it worked for me.

I have the same ones! Love them, but the feet blowing off gets hard for long times on highways. I took the passenger pegs out so that's not an option. I wonder if there's a way to just install a second set of pegs in the middle for the highway

I've thought about that too but that would totally take away from the look of the bike

I did the same using full size adjustable ISO Boards. After the install, the rear brake pedal to me is in ideal position, like it was made for it. I really like having the ability to move my legs and feet around in several positions and locations, it makes long distance rides a breeze.

the radiator side covers on the vrod muscle are wider and stick out further than the ones on the vrod and night rod. I wonder if they deflect more of the air flow away from the feet

Floorboards are the key to your problem.

Kurykan also sells switchblade style pegs/ boards

Use these pegs and I'd be surprised if your feet blew off-- they're kind of serrated on the gripping surfaces.

You want the 45 degree version.

Love 'em.
