Does anyone have a Kuryakyn or Airmaster rear airfoil and if so, do they improve the air turbulence for the passenger?

No offense. This thing is so UGLY who cares if it works. If your wife is bitching about buffeting get a full face helmet, move the windshield up, get Baker wings and if that does not help. Drive a car. It is a motorcycle expect wind

We have one on our trike and Becky says it's staying. Helps with the bobble head. Charley

I have one on my Trike, and Tammy says the same as Charlie's wife.
Ugly as sin but seems to work, and ya know what they say: If mama is happy every body is happy. :yes1:

Cussed and discussed on here several times.
My humble conclusions:
1. Ugly-at least get the clear one if you proceed-doesn't show up as bad as the smoked one.
2. Way over priced for the lower or no benefit of installing one.
3. Very hard to get the backrest on after installing the "thing".
4. Bike cover no longer fits.
5. If your passenger is short-some benefit may be felt. Taller than that(my wife is 5'8"), no difference felt at all.
Mine finally went in the trash! What a waste of good money!

I bought one for $119.00 and tried it.
Flexed alot while I was by myself.
I had my wife get on and she said it didn't make a difference to her.
I took it off and sold it for $39.00.

I didn't like it from the time I opened the package.
Black on my White Trike look terrible and covers didn't fit.
