Forkshield to get rid of turbulence behind screen...testing
« on: January 13, 2021, 03:43:44 PM »
Some of my friends have Africa Twins and two of them have bought the "SWEGOTECH Forkshield " (https://www.swegotech.com/Forkshield-2020-Honda-Africa-Twin-CRF1100-Adventure-Sports-stop-helmet-wind-buffeting.html) and says..... turbulence gone.

Found that interesting and build myself a test forkshield to my 800 XCA. See pictures. The weather outside is snowy and cold so I have not tested it yet. Hope the weather will be better in the coming weeks and then I will testdrive and come back with a review.
Is there someone out there  already having tested the same set up?

I like that, keep us informed please.
Would it look better matt black possibly?

Took what I had in my trash bin for the test set up. Like to use plexi when testing as you easily can see where to drill and saw. If testing shows product to be good I will use dark polycarbonate sheet later on.
It's still snowing outside.......
