K1600BGA Stability - Surprising Results
Today I replaced the stock windshield on my '19 Grand America with the windshield that used to be on my GTL.
It is an Aeroflow GTL Hybrid Aeroscreen with the flared top X-tra Tall. It is the largest lexan barn door they sell for the GTL.
I fully expected the much larger shield to make any instability of the BGA worse. But the exact opposite happened. The bike is much less twitchy with the big windshield. I mentioned in a previous post that the bike is also less twitchy 2-up. Today, with the big windshield and 2-up, it was as stable as any Road King or Goldwing.
I think the twichy-ness originates from the top case, and the bigger windshield helps direct the air over it (just my guess).
I don't have any financial incentive to help sell Aeroflow screens, just reporting what I found out.
