    Considering getting those for my Springfield. But at a price of 249.00 for a metal bracket and small piece of plastic seem a little steep. My question is do they help enough for me to pay that much for them?

    At the recommendation of several forum members on a couple of posts, I put a set on about a month ago on mine to make riding through the rest of the winter season more comfortable and they made a huge difference.
    Well worth it for me, especially at night or early morning when the temperature here has gotten down into the 30's a few times.

    I have them too. Almost completely stopped the wind buffeting but still allows air good flow.

    Yep, price is steep (as with all Indian accessories) but I've seen some for sale on this forum at reduced prices if you want to wait.

    I have the ones from Jescustomaccents.com on my 2015 Chieftain, they cut down on wind buffeting and direct the air inward towards the motor.

    I bought the Indian deflectors and I am glad I did. I didn't like the look of the other "corn picker" design deflectors.

    If you have a Springfield Stereo System (solely consisting of Concert Audio Lids on the saddlebags), there are a must IMO.

    Can ride up to 90 MPH and still hear the sound system with the bottom deflectors ON. Without them you are limited to about 70 MPH before the wind obliterates your music.

    Had them on my 14 Classic for 2 years. Along with the tall windshield. Never take them off. makes a big difference on the freeway. I also prefer the looks of the Indian ones.

    Style-wise, if I still had my Chieftain, I would get the JES. But with my Springfield, I like the look of Indian's better, and they are effective.

    I bought the clear but yes, that's them.
    If I remember correctly there's just two hex head screws per side (they include 4 slightly longer) and a snap in wire tie holder that holds the turn signal and passing lamp wires removed and reinstalled in the deflector.
