So the trike I just bought (Gl1500a) has air deflectors mounted on it. They attach by the fairing pockets and are about 6 or 8 inches square. (I think, haven't measured them) Anyways, one is broken. Should I try to find a replacement plastic? Just remove them? Upgrade to a taller version? What are people's opinions about them? Having never before owned a bike with any actual wind protection, I'm not sure what to do. On my KLR, wind is just a part of the ride.

Are they in flat planes, or are they made as an arc?
I've remade the ones on my '85 1200 a few times after my boot hit / cracked one in cold weather. Easy to make from tinted plexiglass, I get it at glass shop in 1/8" plates. Use band saw to cut or scribe & snap … propane heats to bend. .
The 1500 trike has them too, made of like 3/16 red tint plexiglass with a gentle curve. Luckily never broke one, …. yet.
I like them in hot or cold weather.
