How to Choose a Klock Werks Flare Windshield

Klock Werks has launched its Find Your Flare program.

One size does not fit all! Klock Werks developed a variety of windshield heights for many models so riders can find a fit that really works. Find the right Flare for your stance with new vertical height measurements.

If you can, always “Try It Before You Buy It!” Klock Werks set up a test pilot program with dealers all over the world that allows customers to try the windshields at no cost and no obligation. This is the best way to find what works for you.

But, if you can’t get to a dealer, how do you find the right height? When choosing a Klock Werks Flare Windshield, we suggest that you look over it. When you know where you line of sight is, you can make an educated decision about which Flare to purchase according to the vertical height of each shield.

Klock Werks Shows How to Measure Line of Sight

Klock Werks shows how to measure your line of sight.

“The ability to see over the windshield not only gives you the clearest view of what’s ahead of you, but it also puts your head and shoulders in the sweet-spot of the air managed by the windshield,” Jennifer Bainbridge, Klock Werks Lead R&D explained.

To find your line of sight, you may need an extra hand! Sit on your motorcycle and try to recreate your usual riding position. If you slouch often when you ride, take that into account. With a ruler or tape measure, have your helper measure vertically from the center of your stock windshield. Be certain the measuring device is straight as possible. At what measurement does your line of sight lie? Now that you know, choose a Flare with a vertical height that is LESS THAN that measurement.

If you ride two-up frequently, consider your passenger’s line of sight. You may want to choose an option with more coverage. Please note, choosing a Flare based on your line of sight does NOT guarantee the best overall air management possible. This method, while 95% accurate, cannot recreate the actual experience of riding. Use our dealer locator at getklocked.com to find a dealer nearest you to “Try It Before You Buy It.” You may also choose to have your Flare installed by the Klock Krew at a rally nearest you or test drive a Flare on a Harley Davidson during the Legend Suspension Performance Tour, starting date to be announced.

Official 2017 Daytona Bike Week Build: Klock Werks Flare Windshield

The 2017 Official Daytona Bike Week Motorcycle is accumulating quite the pedigree of parts. The tried-and-true stock Harley Ultra formula looks much sportier thanks to the Paul Yaffe Bagger Nation touch, including a Chupa Rear Fender, Super Stretch Saddlebags, and Razorback Gas Tank. If getting upgrades from one custom bike building legend wasn’t enough, it’s also got traces of the incomparable Arlen Ness in its design straight from Arlen Ness Enterprises red hot 10-Gauge line of parts, the front seeing the addition of 10-Gauge Hot Legs and Fork Boots while the engine, tranny pack, and primary all don 10-Gauge covers. The 2017 Official Daytona Bike Week build is now not only starting to look the part, it’s running like a top thanks to an RPT Air Intake, Power Port Dual Headpipes, and Race-Pro 4” Slip-Ons from Cobra USA.

With the likes of Yaffe and Ness already associated with the bike, it’s only fitting to add the name of another custom building heavyweight to the mix – Klock Werks. The company’s Flare Windshield is one of the best on the market, with an aerodynamic design that’s been tested in wind tunnels. It’s got the “Flip” at the top that reduces turbulence on riders and “Hips” on the sides that routes wind away while adding downforce to the front end. In our opinion, it looks pretty darn sharp, too. Klock Werks is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2017, and you don’t enjoy that type of longevity in this industry without manufacturing quality products.
