I finally purchased the 21" screen for the Springfield and it has made a huge difference.

However I do still experience some buffeting at highway and freeway speeds and have been told that it is more so due to air coming up from under the screen.

Do any of you run lower deflectors and if so can you notice a difference a difference between when they are installed or not.

I put JES Custom lowers on my bike and the turbulence around my helmet disappeared. I don't know if any particular shape is better than any other, but getting rid of that air coming up beside the tank makes all the difference.

I have the stock screen - it was included up to 2018 bikes - but take it off for summer around town.

I made my own which greatly reduced the turbulence

I have the stock screen and installed Freedom lowers (on OEM brackets) on my 2017 SF.  

It made a huge difference, although as Kim said ^^^ I also take the screen off often to feel the summer breeze on town rides.

I have bought the Indian lower wind deflectors and they have made a massive difference. With the taller screen (I'm 6'6") I can ride for hours on open roads with no buffeting at all.

Definitely money well spent.

I took advantage of the "discounts" recently offered by Indian Motorcycle stores and purchased the wind reflectors for my 2018 Springfield.  Went out for a test ride yesterday and the annoying buffeting has vanished. Thanks for the advice guys!

I am sure you will be able to order a pair.

They seem expensive for what they are, but are worth every single penny.

All they said was No when I asked if they had them,,  I imagine they have lost a bit of interest in customer service given the dealership situation.
