When i bought my Wing an extra windshield was included. The spare has the vent in it. What are the pro's and con's of the vent. Hate to change it and find out that there was a good reason for not changing it.

I personally like the vent for summertime cooling. the cons are a loss of vison area. I wouldn't want one without the vent myself.

+1 on Mark's comment. I learned something about mine last night when using the chamois, the vent is actually never closed completely, ther are louvers in the very top of the vent that allow a small amount of air movement when in the closed position. Reduces buffeting somewhat I reckon.

I have a Memphis Shades non vented model. I've never had one with a vent so I cannot comment on them. I do open the vents on the bike to bring air flow back towards me.

I leave the vent open just about a half inch all of the time. It really does help with the buffetting. Of course in warmer weather I have it open all the way. Conis it lets some rain and condensation blow back onto your face.

I love the vent, it is low enough that it doesn't get in your line of sight. The only draw back is cleaning underneath it, no big deal you just have to raise the windscreen up.

I live in upstate NY. Normally not hot like the southern states but when it hits 80+ here, it's nice to be able to open the vent and get some air blowing on you. I am glad I have the vent.
