Side Deflector Kit ?
on: April 11, 2013, 08:59:54 PM
Just wondered if anyone had fitted a set and if so, what are your thoughts ?

The blurb says they offer more weather protection, anyone know if they're worth it ?

Daft as it seams they do work for me and  imo they give a nice line to the panels, ,so its Honda and it works... They do the same job as the 'ears ' Ford fitted to the rear quarter windows of the Sierra  many years ago  to stop the crud enveloping the rear of the car...

Yes i had them fitted to my CT when new which was only a few weeks ago, they are nice looking while being subtle & discrete. The riding experience is comfortable but as i have had them from new i've not ridden the bike without them to see actual difference. Also had the taller Touring Screen and being 6'2" i get very little wind buffeting from front or sides of bike. Its a dream to ride  :008:

Thanks Jacob. I presume it's a Honda part? What do they cost?
