Has anyone made or does anyone make some type of heat deflectors to blow the heat from the radiator away from the rider when the fans come on? if not whats your thoughts about the idea.

My thoughts are.......It's a motorcycle and it gets hot.If you want cool then ride in a cage and hit the AC button.

My 2005A came with factory airconditioning. To get it to work properly, I have to pull in the clutch, shift into first gear, increase throttle while slowly releasing clutch then shift as normal. The AC works better in temps below 85 deg.

Yesterday it was kind of hot here in Jersey. Only when stopped do you feel anything from the radiator. Otherwise when moving it seems fine. THe fan may direct the air in that direction to disipate the heat from other places. I don't know if it would be a good idea to deflect it in another direction.

I thought that was the best part of riding the Vrod. Stopped at a traffic light during the hottest time of the day, in the summer and have the radiator fans kick on. Feeling the warmth of the engine washing over you. Man, it doesn't get any better than that...

I got that with my 05 also.
