Another Aeroflow question

All, In my ongoing quest to reduce the buffeting to my head, I'm looking at the Areoflow system. Since they are not answering my emails, I'm going to you for help.

I have the Big Mak shelf on my '07 GT, will I be able to keep it with the AF?
I like to have a bit of air on me going thru towns, will I still get some air at slower speeds?

Thanks for any help!

Re: Another Aeroflow question

I have the aeroflow. You can always lower the windscreen to get some breeze. As for the Mac shelf, I don't know. I haven't tried to mount one.

Phone Aeroflow. They are far better at returning phone calls then they are answering e-mails.

Unfortunately, my hours don't match up well with theirs very well.

Thanks though.

FWIW

I have always phoned.
Not because I'm I-T challenged, but because I had detailed questions and wanted to talk.
'04GT / purchased A-F and was VERY PLEASED
'07RT / purchased, never installed, returned. Bike is for sale
'08GT / purchased, received, not yet installed

Very happy with their customer service.... nice folks

The problem is that my hours don't match up with theirs. I may just have to go back to a RT.

Thanks though.

I have an Aeroflow (high) and Big Mak shelf, and a laminar lip on the top of the aeroflow.

yes it all fits, but you won't be able to use the Aeroflow laminar flow gadget.

I fitted a laminar lip because at 6ft 1", I found the Aerolow just a little low for my liking.

The screen drops low enough for air flow and looking over the top.

When it gets hot here, I may take off the gards and the lip

Re: Another Aeroflow question

ksrob, I have an aeroflow (tall) with the guards, but do not care for it. I went back to the stock short wind screen. would you be interested in mine at a sharply reduced rate?

Re: Another Aeroflow question

I've fitted a CEE Baileys +2 +4 screen to my 07 GT which provides just the right amount of protection for myself and the copilot. I am considering the Aeroflow aeroguards to add even more protection.

Can any provide any feedback on the usefullness of these bits of kit?
