Honda's Wind Deflectors
« on: August 10, 2019, 09:04:11 AM »
Has anyone put the Air Deflectors from Honda (08R71-MGZ-J80) on their CB500X? Could you tell a difference in wind and rain? Are they staying on (only has glue to hold on)? Inquiring minds want to know, in other words, are they worth $129 bucks?

I bought mine because I saw them for sale 'used' and decided to give them a try - re-attached 3m double sided tape and fitted them - I noticed a difference straight away - nothing like as much wind on your knees - they do make a difference too in relation to rain but will Not keep you dry obviously - It is surprising how such small deflectors do work - but they do.
How much You have to pay or are willing to pay is over to you.  :002:
I have crash bars on too which the deflectors fit snugly behind to assist keeping them on - there are provisions to screw into them from inside the fairing though it is quite fiddly. Hope this helps you make your mind up . :002:

I'm curious about these too. Thanks for your opinion, denislordm. OP, if you are going to buy them, it looks like RevZilla has them at $117 with shipping included--the cheapest I could find, but still a lot for what you get.

I fitted these deflectors about 2 years ago and the do work,
I only got them because they were very cheap a fraction of
Hondas price , I would not have considered them at retail price ,
They do look quite good a nice piece of trim.
