To get you started, below are a few terminologies and their descriptions that you will see often in the kits :
- Accessory Bar - The Accessory Bar is designed to fit onto the Windshield Adapter Kit and also a stabilizing pole between the two adjustable brackets. It allows you to position your GPS/Phone/Accessory in the ideal position with minimum distraction from your view ahead. It also provides excellent weather protection for your accessories in this position. Made from 1/2" or 3/4" Diameter made from Stainless Steel or Black powder-coated alloy.
- Baffle Screen - The forward positioning of the screen is intended to help relieve air pressure built up in front of it. This means that some air does flow up between the screen and the cowl. In the colder months, this air may be unwanted so the screen baffle eliminates this and also offers additional protection from rain/snow, etc. The baffle is designed to rotate to any position you require and can also help fine-tune the elimination of turbulence and wind noise - especially useful if carrying luggage and/or passenger. There can be a slight increase in turbulence behind the screen at higher speeds with the gap totally blanked off. Made from Stainless Steel and available in a brushed-finish or Black Powder-Coated.
