Not sure if this is what you are wanting, but look though the site and they have 2 types of side/wind defectors and replacement parts also.

The forces on "WindWings" are quite significant...
and those forces increase as the cube of your velocity. In addition your fairing plastic is about 25 years old..and not as strong as it once was...

so.... Be sure and fasten those "wings" very securely ..

Mine were starting to crack the plastic... so now they are mounted
with machine bolts through the plastic into 1.25 fender washers and then into epoxy fastened T-bolts .
One of the fender washers had to be cut down a bit to fit in the confined space.

I was thinking the same thing when I put them on my 1100. I took a piece of flat welding stock, drilled a couple holes in it to match, and mounted that on the inside, so the wing was braced against the length of that piece of metal, instead of putting all of the force on two little bolts.
