Wind buster
The new Police Graphics Windscreen by Drag Specialties presents a snarling K-9, border patrol images, a SWAT team in hot pursuit and a huge “assist-protect-defend-U.S.A.” shield in its center. Designed as a way to honor those who protect and serve, these are OEM direct replacement windscreens in what’s known as “optically perfect” construction. Built from a durable, custom-molded premium Lexan polycarbonate, they each receive an FMR hard coating that gives the screen 20 times the impact resistance and abrasion resistance of standard acrylic, making it highly resistant to fading or scratching (though not actually bullet-proof). They come in two heights, 6″ and 8″, and fit 1996–2011 FLHT/FLHX Harley models along with all H-D FL Trikes. Made in the U.S.A., they carry a suggested retail price of $99.95.

Breeze control
The new Ventilator Detachable Windshield by Harley-Davidson incorporates a set of adjustable wings that vent the airflow to a rider’s preference. Fully opened, the Ventilators direct the air across the rider’s chest and while in the closed position, maximum protection from the elements is achieved. The windshield can be detached completely and easily reinstalled in just a few seconds. A Compact design is available in 19″ and 20″ heights to fit many Sportsters, Dyna and Softail models (prices range from $424.95 to $474.95). A 21″ King-Size version is available for 1994-and-later Road Kings and a number of Softail models ($374.95 to $424.95). See an authorized Harley dealer for exact fitment details.

Ring of fire
Adequate illumination is invaluable to safe motorcycling—and when it comes boxed in a stylish package, so much the better. Cutting a path to better visibility is the new HedLED Headlight System by Rivera Primo. These headlights are available in three distinct designs, each offering an integrated LED ring around the lens perimeter that can be used as turn indicators or running lights. The “Mighty Magnum” (9″ long) and the “Mini Magnum” (7″) are each 5 3/4″ diameter headlights that feature a H4 halogen bulb rated at 60/55 watt and a three-bar lens, surrounded by a ring of 12 LEDs. The “RFB HID” is a true High Intensity Discharge system measuring 4 1/4″ diameter by 10″ long. The LED array is embedded in the bezel and provides a truly retro shape. Prices vary; not legal in all states.

Back in black
As we all know, flat is just so… well… flat. That’s why Küryakyn first developed their line of curved license plate brackets to fit the Street Glide and Road Glide. To update the unit, Küryakyn has dipped the original product into a vat of dark evilness and the result is their new Gloss Black Curved License Plate Mount. Installation is a simple bolt-up operation, requiring no drilling or modifications. The mount retails for $79.99 and is available to fit 2006-2011 FLHX Street Glide and the 2010-2011 FLTRX Road Glide models.

Beat the heat
Coming to the aid of overheated Softail owners, the new Mid-Frame Air Deflector provides some much-needed relief during extreme duty riding and in severe temperatures. This airfoil attaches to the frame under the nose of seats on 2008-later models (except Rocker and Rocker C), surrounding the rear head and shielding the rider from excess heat as the airflow is redirected down and away from the seating area. Retailing for $74.95, the kit includes all necessary mounting hardware.

Keeping baby beautiful
For the last 25 years, Wizards Products has been churning out their popular line of cleaners, waxes and polish and simplifying the cleaning day chores of countless fastidious bikers. To celebrate such a momentous birthday, the company is introducing three new additions to their extensive list of products. Their new Shine Master provides tough poly-acrylic protection and is used as a wax replacement, swirl mark removal agent or show glaze. The new Scratch Remover goes a little deeper in removing minor scratches and blemishes and is touted as a safe alternative to harsher rubbing compounds. And the company’s new Bug Release is chemically designed to remove bugs and their nasty residue by neutralizing acidic proteins common in flying road pests. While strong enough to remove bug-goo, it will not strip off wax or polish.
