Our SWEGOTECH ADVENTURE SPORTS FORKSHIELD got installed and tested by the legendary Kyle Bradshaw !!!
"I've been riding with this Forkshield for three days now and I gotta say it's a GAME CHANGER on this Africa Twin... The noise was so annoying and irritating... A SWEGOTECH Forkshield is the answer to this Buffeting Noise... I am not hearing that whap-whap noise that I was getting before I installed this Forkshield...
As you saw in the installation video just four screws to remove and replace and that's it... The risers still have a 100% movement for functionality... Super, super simple, it looks really good, it's well made, it does the job and comes with all the hardware you need.
So for 40 bucks I don't think you can go wrong!"
CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO HERE:
Watch the video until the end to see Kyle riding the Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sports up a mountain road between all those stuck cars (starting 10:30min mark). That's highly entertaining like all his videos.

I was riding my mates 800 GSA and a demo 12GS Rallye last week and felt a rush of air up through the forks just like the AT has. Yet no peak buffeting was felt and Iíve concluded that itís more down to the angle of the front of the AT/screen than what comes up through the fork tunnel plus the AT seems narrower at the front which may be why Honda sell those extra bits of wind deflection add ons.
Saying all that, whatever works for you, go for it. Iíve found my satisfactory set up, good luck finding yours.

Ordered mine yesterday ! Went out for a ride and noticed buffeting from around 65mph upward (loud booming and ringing noise in helmet) if I put my left arm and hand over the gap it stops this noise significantly. So I'm sure the deflector will help.

So, 08R74MJPG50 is the OEM part # for the Honda "upper wind deflectors"
Around U$150 for two pieces of molded black plastic and some 3M double sided tape seems a ⸮bit steep⸮. I'm looking at either fabricating my own, looking for a 3D model (I got access to a 3D printer) and attaching it either with the double sided tape or using a threaded insert rivet for a cleaner, more permanent look. Will post a new thread asking other members that might have used it to see if it's worth all the work.
Random angry man rant: I'm originally from Brazil and have lived and ridden there and in Europe. The first time I felt that we in the US are like a Developing Nation was when shopping for a cell phone and how limited and crappy the options here are compared to elsewhere, including "official Developing Nations with Emergent Economies". Now, trying to get accessories for the Africa Twin, I'm getting the same bad taste in my mouth. We are either a second thought for the manufacturers or (my only opinion after a few beers) we are getting systematically screwed. Please convince me that the wind dynamics and their ridiculously priced solution were not put there by design?!?!?!
