Could this be a possible solution to the high speed wobble?

Hmmm...

Someone needs to test it out. innocent1

Perfect match to fin's helmet :p

Wonder how it will react in strong side wind and into dirty air behind or passing a semi trailer on hyway :confused:

Looks like a good way to cause a problem at high speed/high wind/tractor trailer situations to me.

Of course I have never tested it.

But I'll leave the testing to others...

Though it says the radiator still gets enough air, I'd be concerned about that.

Sure. But that's not a real world situation. That is fighting a 25 mph cross wind or getting buffeted by a semi's turbulence at 80 mph.

What happens then?

Maybe it works. confused1

But something tells me that's wishfull thinking.

I wouldn't be.

On the 2001 Iron Butt Rally, guys riding up on the Haul Road duct-taped card board over most of their radiators to protect them from getting clogged up by the cement-like mud up there and the bikes didn't overheat.

The ones that did were us yo-yo's that DIDN'T cover our radiators and let them get clogged up.

:eek:

There he goes again, "The sky is falling...". You crack me up

I don't think it is large enough to matter, Echo. I mean, the bike itself gets buffeted already in those instances, yes. But that little, tiny protuberance wouldn't matter much.

I can see why it works better. It is a small surface splitting up the air and funneling it around the bike (which has more surface area). Since it is being funneled around the bike, less turbulence and less drag (plus, less air into the wheel well area).

I might just try one.

I was thinking that two small protuberances (similar but smaller) on either side of the bike just in front of the opening under the seat might be enough to disrupt the air there and suck the hot stuff (that hangs around our calves) away from our legs. Thus, decreasing the heat we feel.

The WAVE!
