Hi all
Does anyone have wind deflectors fitted to there chief dark horse or chief classic?
I am told the brackets that come with these deflectors need to be fitted with the light bar or drilled and cut to suit.
Is it not possible to buy a set of deflectors that will bolt straight up to my blinker brackets ?
The part number I am refered to is 2880786-463
Cheers

The JESCustoms deflectors bolt to the two bolts you see on each side of the fork covers. They don't need the light bar.

So it seems you cant buy them oem to bolt straight to the blinker brackets. You need to purchase the light bar oem as well.
I find this a little strange.

That's what it looks like, but I've not seen the OEM fitment to see how easy it is to modify.

I went for JESCustoms.

Yep, I ordered through the website. It was a year ago and I don't remember how long it took, but I can't remember it being a frustratingly long wait.

I bought the plain steel ones and had them powder coated, that cost a bit, I think about $120/150 or so for both. It seemed expensive at the time but the result was good and the expense gets forgotten soon after they go on the bike. The powder coat guy explained all the steps in the process to make sure they are properly cleaned and a have good surface to take the powder and I was happy with what he charged once I knew the work involved.
