Anyone happen to have a windsheild vent for a 1500 laying around? I see one at Cyclemax for $38.00 but I'm hoping someone has a used one.

The problem with used is the lever often breaks off at the vent control from age, brittle plastic, so you would be wise to just spend the $38 for the new one. Your choice though. I have a broken one in storage.

Yeah, know what you mean. Went to the garage and I couldn't feel any air coming from mine either. :)

Hey peanut I agree. There is some air flowing thru.and with this black bike and the summer sun. I can use all the air I can find. I've got a fantastic member from this board who replied and is sending me a used one(thanks jim).

Don't wast your time buying it ,you can't feel the air from it .
That all depends if its down to the speedo, then you won't feel it.
I bought a V-stream that has the vent hole cut at 5"(at the bottom of the vent) above the speedo at the lowest windshield point and I get fresh flowing air on my face that I feel real good, Much better than the last shield(Markland) that was on the bike where it sat on the speedo and I never felt any air from it, If buying a new shield that they cut them low, order it w/o the hole cut and cut your own hole up higher.

same vent just up higher.:readit:

This is a low mounted vent and the higher on my V-Stream windshield.
That 5" higher makes a lot of difference in the air you'll feel, or not.
