The Right Shield for Every Rider

May 9, 2016

Over the years, the original and patented Flare™ Windshield has taken the market by storm and the momentum this high quality shield has amassed has only increased. Every day, Klock Werks is thrilled to hear how the Flare™ has changed someone’s ride, and they want to bring that same great design to as many riders as possible.

Enter the Flare™ Windshield for Yamaha! Klock Werks has fitments for Yamaha Stratoliner Deluxe with a factory fairing or any Stratoliner outfitted with a Yamaha Deluxe Fairing Kit. It is available in 8.5” and 10” heights in Tint and Dark Smoke. The air management experts at Klock Werks recommend that you look just over the Flare™, not through it, so if you need help determining which height is right for you, be sure to contact the team!

You should look just over the Flare™, not through it!

“I’m 6’-3” and have been using the Flare. I really like it,” (gjearne) said. “I have no problem with wearing a baseball cap at highway speeds. The Flare™ sends the air over the top of your head really well.”

The  Klock Werks OE Replacement Flare™ Windshield will fit any 98-09 Yamaha V-Star 650 / 1100 Classic! So, even if you don’t have a bike with a fairing, you can still enjoy the same performance and style with bolt on ease! With Klock Werks’ patented “hips” on the side and a flip at the top, shields have been wind tunnel designed and tested to produce the same amount of additional down force as the original. Real world testing and computer simulation also produced heights that will work for most riders. Heights listed are measured from headlight opening to top of shield.


“The Billboard Flare was designed specifically for bikes that don’t have fairings. We took the same concept and tested it with a variety of bikes and different heights of riders to achieve the same performance and style goals we set for all of our Flare options,” stated Brian Klock, President, Klock Werks.

Klock Werks always seeks to make parts that look great, make sense, fit right out of the box, and are made of the best quality, right here in the USA. Klock Werks Flare™ Windshields are available online at or through your local Drag Specialties dealer.
