DK Custom Cooling Deflector Wings CDW Harley Touring Bagger Trike Tri-Glide Freewheeler Better Air Flow Reduce Buffetting






DK Custom Products




  • 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 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! 



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

"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.

Customer Reviews

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)
Really helps control air flow Review by dr gary
The air wings catch their coming over the pods and channel it over the engine. It helps cool my legs from the engine heat. (Posted on 9/16/2019)
Air deflector Review by Sao
Seems to work fine fast delivery like always. Great product thanks!! (Posted on 8/30/2019)
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)
Excellent Review by FJM JR
Unreal how much these reduce the buffeting. I can hear my stock speakers now. These along with the deluxe lift kit and Love Jugs make the bike run much stronger. Very happy with these products. (Posted on 7/30/2019)
wing deflectors Review by tony
I felt improvement on the wind coming up from the triple trees and aloing side the tank. great product. (Posted on 7/20/2019)
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)
review of the air deflector wings Review by Judi
I ordered your air deflector wings for my 2014 Tri Glide. I called customer service with my questions, who gave me great service and made sure I had the right set coming my way- and it came very quickly! Very happy with the results of having them on. (Posted on 7/4/2019)
Engine Cooling Review by mark7352156
I have a tank lift kit and added the cooling deflector wings. The riding outside temperatures have been over 100 degrees. 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)
great Review by Mac
these are great as everything you do to cool engine help a lot would hope every one put them on great job Dk (Posted on 6/30/2019)
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. (Posted on 6/22/2019)
Awesome Review by Joel
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)
They work as advertised Review by Wings
The wings definitely move some air over your engine I think they are a useful addition (Posted on 6/4/2019)
OK Review by Mike
The product is well made and delivery was fast. Unfortunately I could not use them on my 2017 Road King Special because of the windshield I have installed. No way of bending the wings to fit. The issue is when I turn the handle bars from side to side the wings interfere. (Posted on 5/8/2019)
Very nice Review by Thumper

Thank you! (Posted on 6/21/2018)
Well Made and effective Review by Dean
Great idea, that works. Very easy install in my 18 Tri Glide and they helped. I am pleased with products I have purchased from dk and recommend them. (Posted on 5/31/2018)
Great product, glad I bought them. Review by Roger
Put them on my 2013 tri glide. Huge improvement in updraft around the tank. Still have a little from the sides of the tank. Considering the tank lift. (Posted on 5/9/2018)
John Review by Smithc810
They work! (Posted on 3/12/2018)
sa-WEET! Review by -Vince
I have a 2015 FLHTCUL, and added the cooling wings this past spring. They are absolutely THE TITS! Noticeable reduction in head buffeting. At under fifty bucks and a 5 minute install, they are the most cost effective comfort mod I've made.

Good for airflow Review by Red
Sharp product, good fit and finish. Helps to redirect wind down to the engine where it belongs, not up in your face. I run without fairing lowers, and these don't get in the way or look out of place. (Posted on 7/25/2017)
