I added aftermarket ones to my gen1 TEX. On my bike, they cut the wind traveling up the front of the fuel tank that hit my shoulders and reduced booming wind noise across the bottom of my helmet.

I nearly sold my MkI due to the buffeting it was that bad and ended up cutting the screen down until it got to an acceptable level but I now have a 2017 XRt and the refinements to the aerodynamics around the screen are worth the change alone. There are plenty of options out there to add defectors and plenty of discussion on here about them.

Worth the money on a Mk1. Can't say for the other versions.

Powerbronze ones.

I already put my 2 cents in on this subject, but will just say I think they're well worth the money spent. :028:
