I got a set of the Tulsa Hot Foot wind deflectors today, I was a little disappointed to see that they are held on with two small springs. Do the springs actually hold these things on or should I put them on with zip ties?
I been usin Tulsa Hot Feet for two or three seasons, in all kinds of weather all all kinds of speeds. If you got em put on right they won't come off till you take em off. Th springs don't hold em on, they are held on by slippin em under th front cowl & puttin th slot around th front crash bar. All th spring does is help hold th Hot Feet in position. Hot Feet are well worth th money IMO & work as advertised. Also, Alan of Tulsa Ent. & his wife are GOOD Folks. :mrgreen:
I bought a pair of hotfoots and they have worked well at keeping my feet warm. The easiest way I found to install them is slip the front part in behind the lower cowl and get the slot hooked over the crash bar, then hook the spring to the exhaust cover and the last thing is to engage the hook to the bottom of the exhaust cover. Less than one minute for each side with no tools needed. I used to use a pliers to hook the spring before I discovered the secret.
I don't have a twist tie or tie wrap holding mine on and I don't have a problem with them at all other than I scrape them all the time. I acutally have a hole worn in the middle of the left one :shock: . Looks like I'll be replacing them about every three years or so :wink:
