Want Flare? Go Klock Werks Windshield.


Wind Tunnel Tested…Rider Approved. My review of the Klock Werks Flare Windshield. 

Shortly after I bought my Indian Chieftain, I was contacted by one named #BrianTheBobbleHead.

Brian Klock inquired to see if I would be interested in putting the patented Klock Werks Flare Windshield to the test and possibly joining thousands of riders all over the world who have become “bobble head” free.

My quest for “bobble head” freedom. Here’s my story…

The vast majority of traditional motorcycle windshields are all function and have little to no coolness about them. They tend to be high, rounded window panes. Yes, they redirect wind but look quite ugly doing it. Some models actually come with a blurred vision option.


TYPICAL LOOK OF A STOCK WINDSHIELD…Rounded, window pane styling. Some, even obscure vision.


The basic logic behind the Flare’s design.

Based on my experience over the past one thousand miles on my Chieftain and 2,200 miles sporting The Flare on my Victory Magnum Ride to Sturgis, I can tell you that the Flare windshield design has both great looks and function…it really does keep wind and rain spray away from your head preventing that buffeting (“bobble head”) sensation. Here’s how it works.


The “flip” at the top of the Flare Windshield, literally kicks up the air driving it back over you in a clean, less turbulent wind flow.

The “hips” at the outer edge of the shield help to re-route air and appear to add some downforce to the front of the motorcycle which helps to improve stability.

Easy installation.

The Flare Windshield installs easily using stock mounting hardware and maintains stock windshield height adjustability. The Flare is available in two heights with tint, dark smoke and black color options. Short windshields have a height of 10″ and the tall option is 12″. Click here to see how the Flare Windshield sits on a Victory Magnum.

Here’s my Bottom Line folks…#EliminateBobbleHead.

Brian and Laura Klock run one of the best motorcycle-related enterprises in the business. I’m a fan of their products and the Klock Werks Team.

Its go Flare Windshield I say when you want touring comfort and to add custom styling to your bagger. The Flare not only looks great, it performs even better than I had originally expected from a low cut windshield.

Plus, their products are made in the USA.

“From all I’ve seen and heard from fellow riders, they too like the Flare Windshield from Klock Werks. They all say that it looks good and offers superior wind management function regardless of the bagger they ride…Harley-Davidson, Honda Goldwings, F6Bs, Yamaha Stratoliner, Victory Cross Country and Magnums and Kawasaki Vaquero/Voyagers.”— Motorcycle Marc

    Thank you Nic…I have the 8 inch Flare on my Indian Chieftain…very happy with it and its wind management. Looks cool too. – MJB

    Hello from China! This is a very cool windshield.
    The info you provide on this web site has helped me tremendously. Do you know if I can order this windshield online and delivered to China? Thank you for all of your time and hard work. I am going to start my own blog based on your design.

    I am very disappointed in the Klock Werks Flip windshield. I have an Indian Roadmaster and got the 12 inch size. In my opinion, the stock shield works better. I still get buffeting with the Klock Werks even when raised to the max.
    I am 5’6″ and at max height the top edge of the shield is directly in my line of sight – not good. With the stock shield raised to the max, I get more protection, less buffeting and can look directly through the shield (rather than through the top edge).

    Unfortunately, Klock Werks return policy does not apply to products once they have been opened and installed. Oh well, live and learn not to rely on others’ reviews.

    Hi Dave…thank you for sharing your feedback on the Flare. Sorry that it does not meet your needs.

    Please contact Klock Werks directly and I am sure they will refund your money. They are the absolute best when it comes to customer satisfaction. Contact their Customer Satisfaction Pro, Weston Frank at 605-996-3700 to “Get Klocked” right. Let me know how it goes.

    Thank you for reading my blog Dave. Ride Safe Out There. MJB
