The Barkbuster Storms with LED turn signals are installed. I'm happy with the final result.

However, I guess my windshield is not OEM. It flares out at the bottom on each side. The result is that in tight turns the Barkbusters make contact with the windshield at the flare-out point. I can't turn my front wheel all the way to the left to lock it. And I can't make any tight turns, right or left, without the handguards making contacting with the windshield. I expect this would have happened with any handguards.

I will have to cut out a piece about 2"x3" at the top of each flare, on each side of the windshield, to enable full turning and ensure no handguard contact.
