Has anyone mounted a set of the leg extension fairings to keep wing and elements off your knees while riding? Also where did you get them from?

Many thanks,
Don

I'm sure there are some posts about this - I have them and they make good weather-protection even better.
The Honda ones are available in the UK but are expensive, especially if you have to have them sent overseas.
Other members will have information about other makes.

Have a trawl through this lot:

I have the ones made and sold by Nelson Boll in Pennsylvania. His email address is petropete@dejazzd.com
$19.95 shipped. Simple, pretty easy to install, and well worth the low price
IMHO.

+1 on Nelson's deflectors. I had the Honda ones on but cracked one in four pieces and didn't want to pay the silly money for then. Nelson's are an easy fix. He also threw in some deflectors for the handlebar grips which work a treat. They have also survived the scoot going over on it's side without any damage to them.
Get them you'll love 'em.

Cheers,

Ditto to both matthew and tarmacburner2.

I have Nelson's leg deflectors and love them. Easy-to-install flexible plastic which are sized properly for the Swing. Mine have also survived a spill or two without any noticeable effects. I highly recommend them.

Thanks for the link Mike. I was going to look into buying a set last year and got busy and forgot about them.

I also installed Nelson's leg and hand deflectors, they look good... but I did have to trim the hand deflectors to get a good fit. Waiting for a break in the weather to test drive. The black on red is money and they give the Swing
a broader profile to approaching traffic. Economic upgrade.

I, unfortunately, bought the ones off of ebay that the guy was selling for Reflex and Silverwing scooters. What I got was a roll of cheap plastic lawn edging that I would have been embarassed to put on the scooter. Got soaked for $29.95 (at least it was free on the shipping).

Ed W, they work a treat!

Or you could put the Honda deflectors on if you can get hold of them. Here in UK they are about £105 + postage from Honda Dealers.

Ucwinters, the lawn-edging flexible plastic is pretty much what Nelson provides, except they are cut to fit the Swing and have holes punched in them to align with the floor mats' rubber tabs. They should also have installation instructions. I think they are excellent - unobtrusive, yet robust.

Ucwinters.....I agree with MarkB.......Nelson's material is flexible but when installed it does protect the Rider better and it does accent the Red Swing.

It it an economic upgrade so all in all it is a plus for me .......who rides in the land of wind and cooler climes....where mucho dinero is saved on buying cooling vests for summer heat Smile

It looks like Nelson used to use a better looking "edging" but switched to the current due to shipping. I like the idea, but it does looks a little ehhh. I will try it out since I purchased it, but I will look for a better alternative and use his as my guide for the markings.

Could you supply a link for the UK supplier for the deflectors? I'd emailed David Silversparrows but they no longer stock items for newer m/c's and scooters according to their response.
