I have a serious buffeting problem. I am 6’ 2” and have a v star 950 with stock windshield. I have put a lot of money into this problem and still have no resolved. Let me also say I know the buffeting is coming from above and not below. I tried a 1300 windshield, which is taller then a 950 and still have the issue of air smacking my forehead. I just installed a laminar lip and that helped a tiny bit but +70 is a headache. I am running out of ideas and wondering if anyone has any solutions. I should not have to get a windshield that I have to look through. I am going to be installing a vent in the windshield here soon. Hopefully that will fix it. Thank you for any suggestions.

Can you, have you played with the tilt of the shield?

I had a 950 and put over 30,000 miles on it. the worst buffeting was with a full helmet. Try this. Next time you are out on the road put your hand down towards the front of the gas tank. The wind is coming up from below. I put some shields next to the forks and it stopped it. There use to be an outfit that made them along with some brackets but I know of several people to have made their own. I now ride a 1700 and had the same problem so I put some on it and that takes care of the problem.

You are right,wind comes from below. The OP needs to put his left arm across his chest,when at speed,and watch the wind go away.
