Handlebar wind deflectors

Postby Hikinghomer » Sat Jul 03, 2010 11:42 11

Ok, here's my thinking: Car manufacturers make similar models so they can use similar or same parts. Along this line of logic, if Yamaha uses the same type of bolt for their ATV's that they use on their motocrosss bikes that may be also used on a Majesty, why wouldn't I be able to install a handle bar wind deflector?

Next time I get down to Great Falls, and talk to the dealer I bought my scoot from, I will find out if this is viable. I know there have been alot of questions from others here at this site concerning this issue. I'll let everybody know what the results are.......unless of course it has already been done.

I think the biggest obstacle would be the plastic cover over the Majesty's handlebars. If some of that was trimmed back (shouldn't be very hard with the right tools), I don't see any reason it wouldn't work. Just make sure you're going to have enough clearance with the windscreen when the handlebars are at full-lock.

Think HippoHands, they look goofy but sure work.

Like Patrick wrote, think something like hippo hands, or one of the many other similar products if your intent is to keep your hands warm. I use a "Ducks Unlimited" ATV product that is similar to the hippo hands, and cost me only about $20.

I also bought the hand guards for my Burgman 400. I'm not sure they really do much good though. I did at first...but I think it was just trying to find some improvement to justify the expense.

They would do a lot of good though, if you were going off-road through a lot of brushy trails... ;)
