They are good but need some modification

so much like the other review here i have a 86 GL1200A
the hardware to mount this is VERY substandard so here is my recommendations
When you receive these take the time to tighten the deflector to the mounts. then head off to the hardware store and spend roughly $12 to purchase new hardware for mounting to the wing.. Purchase some machine screws washers and rubber washers as well and then a decorative bullet nut for mounting Drill the hole to match your screw size and put it all together and tighten everything up. After trying to use the supplied hardware i was so frustrated but once i did the above i was very happy.

yes no
cheap hardware

I bought these air deflectors to combat the intense heat coming off my 87 Aspy in the summer months .
I was a bit skeptical of the strength of mounting with just 2 bolts on the edge of the fairing, but properly installed , these things are awsome !
Lots of huge air directed just where I need it.
The wings themselves rate a solid 5 stars. Keep in mind that my 87 does not have a lot of room to spare on the fairing edge , so these are as big as you could expect to mount there .
My only complaint is with the cheap hardware to mount These require a drilled hole and an expanding anchor , that sadly is a cheap china imitation that will only cause frustration as you try to turn them and strip out the threads as they randomly mush/break off.
I consider myself as quite handy , and am lucky to have an industrial supplier to get the real thing .
It may be out of order to mention other companies ,
so try to find " steel rivet nuts for plasics".
Even these are a bit of a trick to install .
If the moderator allows , I can report back with the name of the supplier /part # and instructions
