COOLING DEFLECTOR WINGS

MADE IN THE USA!
By
DK Custom Products

 

 

FEATURES: 

  • Made from American Steel
  • Durable Black Powder Coat Finish
  • Reduces Rider & Passenger Buffeting
  • Re-Directs air on to the engine for better Cooling
  • E-Z BOLT-ON INSTALL - DOES NOT REQUIRE REMOVAL OF TANK
  • E-Z Install, Step-by-Step Instructions included
  • Made in The USA

 

The functions of the Cooling Deflector Wings are:

1.  Reduce the air coming over the top of the tank, around the sides of the tank, And between the upper & lower fairings.  

2.  This results in a reduction of air hitting the rider and passenger chest, which reduces buffeting/helmet & glasses bobble.

3.  Redirect that air to flow over the engine for better cooling.

We have consistently seen engine temperatures reduced by 8-15 degrees with the CDW's.


These mount up easily at the front tank/frame mounting point on each side.  They are adjustable to get the best redirection of air for you.

When ordering, use the drop-down to let us know whether you have a Harley Trike or a Harley 2-Wheel Touring Model.  This way we can send you the correct CDW for your Ride.

 

Most baffles and deflectors that reduce rider and passenger buffeting also reduce air flow over the engine, making it run hotter. 2007-Up Twin Cams already run too hot during the warm weather months.

With some thought, some curves and bends, & many miles of testing various prototypes, we developed the CDW's that -

  • Reduce Buffeting
  • Are unobtrusive when installed
  • Increase air flow, cooling the engine, resulting in better engine performance & longer engine life

 

This is an EASY install - 10 to 20 minutes! 

 

FITMENT:

All Tri-Glides, Freewheelers and FLHXXX (with or without Tank Lift) 

 All 1999*-Up 2-wheel Touring Models (with or without Tank Lift)

 ***Important Fitment Note for 2 Wheel Touring Models:

 -Fits 05-Up with Lower Fairings

 -Fits 99-up with NO Lower Fairings

 

Patent D828,252

 

"Who knew something so small would make such a big improvement, Thank you!" -Anthony

 

"Hello I am very happy with your air wings, they look much better than Harleys. Oil temp down about 5 to 8 precent.Thanks." -Steve Harshbarger

 

 

"I ordered a set about three weeks ago for my '14 Ultra Limited. First, I want to thank you for the extremely fast shipping. Second, the wings cured my buffeting problem.

I have a $650 Shoei helmet that I couldn't wear because my eyeballs were shaking so badly that I couldn't focus on the road, but not any longer. Great product! Thanks!" -Stephen

 

 

"Had the stereo coming through the helmet speakers, and I could definitely hear it better, and could hear the wife on the intercom much better.

Much less noise under the shield. I was actually able to knock the VOX back three notches without it kicking in and out off of my mic...

So we're well pleased, noticeably less helmet bobble, I used to get a lot, and an unexpected improvement in using the front intercom." -Nate

There are two different style CDW's-

1.  Fits HD Trikes with a tank lift and looks like this-



2.  Fits Trikes without a tank lift and all 2 wheel Touring models (with or without a tank lift) and looks like this-



The reason for the different design is that on all two wheelers, and Trikes without a tank lift, there is less clearance room, so the design is a bit different (and smaller) to get everything to fit.

They both have a "wing" to them that extends out past where the air is that would cause buffeting, this wing is to catch extra air and direct it down onto the engine.

The purpose for designing these was two-fold:

1.  Redirect air onto the engine to cool it down.  This happens 100% of the time and is good for an 8-15* reduction in engine temps (regardless of design).

2.  Reduce buffeting.  How much it will reduce it is dependent on dozens of factors.  How tall you are, what kind of seat you use, how you sit/slouch, foot/leg placement, type of helmet, etc.

Here are a few photos, side by side, for comparision-







btw, the one made for the two wheelers/trikes with no tank lift, will also fit on the trikes with a tank lift.

They also work well on bikes/trikes with no lower fairings.

I don't know what much this helped with buffeting or temps. I did 4 things at once. new windshield - tank lift, new seat and the deflector wings. Although they were somewhat conspicuous, I removed them for aesthetic reasons. (Posted on 9/14/2020)

Deflectors Review by Oz Walds
I bought the deflectors the same time I bought the 1.5 inch deluxe tank lift. My way of thinking it just made sense to do this at the same time, tanks up and I am looking for more air over my cylinders this was a great addon.

Another Great Product. Review by TerryThrTrollKiller
Since June I have installed the tank lift, floorboard relocation kits, trike shocks and lift kit, oil filter relocation and oil cooler kit and last, but not least, the cooling wings. I am a happy camper now. I always loved my trike but now, I’m in love with riding it. It is much cooler, no more scorched legs and the ride is fantastic. These cooling wings top off my upgrades and ate well worth the price. Carry a socket snd adjust them until you get the sweet spot. (Posted on 8/25/2020)

Not great Review by Paul
Engine dropped a couple degrees as per my tuner, but I run 210 to 230 most of the time. They did not do anything for wind buffering.and that's what I was looking for. The wind between the lowers and bat wing hit me in the face, I love the wind but not how my sunglasses jump around.

Sounds like you could benefit from adjusting the angle of the CDW's. Give a call or an email if you would like some assistance. (Posted on 8/18/2020)

excellent products Review by Petrus
Tanklift and deflectors work perfect for me. No more buffeting to the helmet and the ride is much more quit.
Also, at the moment its very hot in the Netherlands and after a 2 hour ride on the highway at 120 km the oiltemperature did not come above 115C [239F] and that is without an oilcooler. So the tanklift helps with the cooling aswell. Also no need for midframe deflectors to keep the heat away from your thighs.
Very happy with both products. (Posted on 8/13/2020)

Effective Review by Jeff in Tucson
I ride in temperatures well over 100 degrees in the Arizona desert with my 2012 Road Glide. The custom motor is quite the beast at 113 ci and 130 hp / 127 tq. Things get cooking fast down here! With the tank riser kit, plus the rear deluxe lift kit, and the cooling wings, I'm easily seeing 10 degrees less, sometimes more, on really hot days. Even during questionable speeds on the highway in the heat, passing grandmothers, Corvettes, Mustangs and Kawasakis, the oil temp has never gone over 230. At regular cruising, it's more like 190. Ah, life is good. (Posted on 8/5/2020)

I just installed DK Custom wind deflectors....and man what a difference they make!

Did better than I expected........ Review by MickeyFee
I was hoping that they would deflex the wind and rain from coming up from between the lower fairings and fairing. They do great at pushing wind and rain down and away from my face, and eliminated all wind buffeting.
Bonus points for mild engine heat reduction and keeping my legs a bit cooler also.
Very pleased with the results! (Posted on 7/4/2020)

These wings are great for redirecting the air that would be flowing over the tank down towards the engine. Helps to cool the engine and stops the air from hitting the rider. With less turbulence around my helmet, I can hear the bike better and that’s always a good thing. (Posted on 6/1/2020)

Deflector Wings work Great! Review by ZooMan55
Super easy to install, and they make a big difference. Noticaeble difference in the way the air comes up over the tank, or doesn't any more.

Hoping it has a similar effect on blowing heat from the engine down and out. I'm riding a Freewheeler trike and it does get warm. Haven't used these in the heat yet, but hoping. (Posted on 4/14/2020)

Awesome felt improvement Review by CAM
Put the wind deflectors on my 2017 Tri-Glide with the deluxe tank lift. The installation was quick and easy. About a 15 minute job. What a felt difference in reduced wind buffeting between the fairing and gas tank. Nice not having as much wind hit you in the face and chest. The felt heat coming off the side of the engine onto the rider and the passengers legs was reduced to almost none. Great product, nice fit and finish. (Posted on 3/26/2020)

Definite Improvement Review by Matt E.
I put these on my 2020 Ultra Limited to go along with a 10" Freedom Shield. I had tried a couple of other fixes for head-buffeting / wind management (various windshields and air-deflectors) but hadn't quite got it as good as I felt it could be based on past experience with my previous bat-wing fairing bike (2015 Street Glide Special with fork fangs and a Freedom Shield). The Freedom Shield was a step in the right direction after first trying a Klockwerks Shield but it still wasn't good enough. I considered adding a customized set of Harley fork fangs but was leery of what they would do to my engine temperatures (Limited has lower fairings). I haven't tried to measure engine temps with these DK Custom Deflector Wings (I don't see how they could do anything but help lower temps) but they definitely lessened the turbulence in/around my face and head. Based on memory alone (not necessarily all that reliable) I don't think these cut updraft quite as good as Harley fork fangs, but they are a close second and definitely won't hurt my engine temps. I give the Wings two thumbs up. They're definitely worth the price of admission. (Posted on 11/7/2019)

Worth the buy for street glides Review by Michael
So it is definitely worth it for buffeting alone. I am 5'10 and ride a 2015 FLHXS with a klockwerks 6.5. This was added after the clock werks and did more for buffeting than many other buffeting mitigations.

For heat. I tested it in similar conditions at highway speeds and say maybe a 2 degree run temp drop, however cooling down to that point seemed accelerated so I think it is worth the buy. (Posted on 8/8/2019)

A product that does it's job well Review by Michael O.
I installed these during my installation of the tank after putting the ThunderVolt 50 plug wires on my 2017 HD Freewheeler trike.
On my test ride, I had an immediate improvement in head/helmet buffeting that could be felt on the highway. My temp. reading showed a 10-12° improvement & coupled with DK Customs 1.5" tank lift, a 20-25° overall temperature reduction.
Thanks for another great product. (Posted on 7/10/2019)

Not Sure.... Review by Carlo
Just returned from a 2500 miles road trip in Europe (Spain and Portugal) I am from the UK.
Fitted the Cooling Deflector Wings before I went.
1. Product well made and easy to fit (I had to use the supplied spacer but no problem).
2. I have an 2018 Ultra Limited Low.
3. It was a really hot trip...the weather in Europe is exceptionally hot at the moment...100 - 110 degrees.
I do not know whether the CDWs actually helped to keep my engine temp. down...I did not measure it but I had no problems.

4. I bought the wings primarily to help with head buffeting. They may have helped a little but I am not sure how much. I still had some buffeting so they did not eliminate it. (Posted on 7/5/2019)

I have rode my 2016 H-D Tri-Glide Ultra and checked the temperatures are under 200 degrees without the cooling deflector wings the teperatures are usually over 250 degrees. I recommend these cooling deflector wings. (Posted on 7/1/2019)

Good so far Review by Chet
Timely delivery, hardest part about install was getting them out of the packaging ( someone went crazy with the tape); I combined this with a 1" tank lift. So far, they seem to be working, a little less air coming over the tank and it feels like I have less heat from the engine. All in all, a good product that does what it says it will do.

I am really impressed at how these work. I never really enjoyed going highway speeds because of the buffeting I would get. Plus since I have a 2006 model, I have a 5 speed tranny. I do have an oil cooler but at the rpms it takes to get to 75 or 80MPH, The oil cooler doesn't do much. 2 problems solved for 50 bucks! Super easy to install as well. (Posted on 6/18/2019)
