    Anybody wanting them can paypal me at buddyrich@ebmc.com.I'm pretty confident y'all will really like them come colder weather. I'm also getting some lower wind deflectors ready that are twice as wide as the Yamaha ones. They should help break the wind off your shins a lot more in the closed position. I'll post some pics later.


    Did you get the lower wind deflectors finished yet?


    TIA

    Curious if they also block any of the wind noise, make it worse, or stays about the same?

    I am making the knee blockers now for those who want some. Takes me about a week after you order them. This week I am in CA for 4 days so that will delay any orders made this week by about 4 days.

    They don't change the amount of wind noise you hear as far as I can tell.

    Cool! I'm very interested. Can I see a picture of the lowers you're building when you get to it? How much for a set of each? Do I need any hardware to attach the lowers? 100 degree weather? What's that?

    The replacement lowers are just that. They are only for replacing the plexiglas on the Yamaha Wind Vents. You will need the hardware that comes with the Yamaha Wind Vents

    BuddyRich: I just sent you $$ via PayPal (I'm smpst46@justice.com) and am looking forward to getting the wind blockers just in time for the falling temperatures here in Pennsylvania. Thanks, in advance!

I made mine up 4 years ago and was happy I did every time it got cool. Mine cut about 90% of the wind off my knees
    These are available in Black or smoke. I will make them in smoke if anyone really wants them like that but they will have some distortions because of the heating and bending

    I would like to have a set of "Knee Wind Blocks, They are 35.00 a pair which includes shipping". Pay pay sent to buddyrich@ebmc.com.

    OH YA! Black please

    My "knee wind blockers" arrived today.

    Very nice workmanship.

    Now if it ever stops raining, I'll get to use them.

    Anybody that ordered these heres some pic of what they look like installed. Remember, The tall side goes inboard. The small block goes underneath to keep upward pressure on them.Any of you that didn't get that small block of polyethelene let me know. Or you can use some thick foam or sponge. Just velcro it so the airfilter doesn't suck it in if it gets loose. Also you'll see a red line in the pics.
    It shows how the edge should kind of line up. Not exact but like that.
    Also BE SURE to clean the underside of your lowers with alcohol so the Velcro will stick good.

    Thanks

    I got mine in the other day, but they didn't look like they were lining up right so I didn't put them on yet. How thick is the block you are using? I have the stuff to make that here, and now that I have seen your more detailed pics I will get them on.

    Thanks

    Cliff, make it just thick enough so you have to squeeze it in. Use some velcro to get them to stick. After a year or so the stuff usually get compressed so you have to replace it. The polyethylene (stuff you find computers shipped in) is stiff enough to push up, but will still compress if you hit something with that lower fairing.

    Got my set and I have to say that they make a HUGE difference. I finally got to try them out for a short ride and was very pleasantly surprised. These are a must have for anybody who rides in cooler temperatures. It will be money very well spent.

    Good enough endorsement for me! PayPal payment sent for a set. Thank Buddy!
