    I am also considering these (Ebay seller.........looks like the same product)

    My main worry is dirt and grit getting between the deflector and the top edge of the panel and causing paint damage.

    I think there is clip on YouTube about that deflectors - apparently they are rather poor quality and need to be drilled prior to fitting.
    Found it - from 6:18

    I have this ebay wind deflectors and im happy with them! Without them i felt a wind streem around hips and lower stomak spetially when cold weather condition!  Both this wind reflectors and side panels madeones  different for better! SC76 mod you do not have to drill anything!  SC70 you have to drill!

    Yes, you are totally right.

    I am just not a fan of transforming motorcycles to a car by adding more and more additional stuff like that but this is only my personal preference and I guess it is doing its job well.  :002:
