Thinking about getting lowers to stop that annoying blast of air that flows up from the tank/seat.

Zzman, they are effective, but the design and size of the lowers has to be taken into account. Hopefully, the first set you purchase will be satisfactory.

I made my own, low cost, perform great. No more (very little) air coming up to the face.

Did the same when I got the bike. I refer to it as "riding in a cone of silence." Very happy with the combo.

Lowers do help a lot to eliminate buffeting. I got these from a guy who was manufacturing them out of his home shop (called "Irons In The Fire") and marketing them to Vulcan riders, but I think he's no longer doing that. No website anymore, but they work great.

Not a big fan of the looks but a big fan of the functionality. First bike I had with lowers was my 2010 Nomad. First really hot weather took them off thinking I would appreciate more airflow. One ride they went back on, added a set to my Drifter because the Nomad had me spoiled, and now adding a set to my Mean Streak as well.
