Default Upper wind deflectors rub lowers

The clear upper wind deflector on my bike has started to rub the hard lowers. It's just on the left side when I turn the bars hard, usually parking lot maneuvering. Plenty of space on the right, rubbing on the left. I reckon I can take the bolts out and try to slide the left side lowers over and tighten them back up but has anybody else experienced this?

there was someone a while back that bought his bike that way new. yes you need to loosen the hard lower mount and push it out again and retighten. its very clear in the instructions how to do it or they will rub, i might still have mine, but wont have time to look till tonight.

Here's what I think is the original thread on this, from two-and-a-half years ago: https://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=12057

I tried to keep an eye on the clamps -- periodically making sure they were tight -- during much of my first season. Didn't help, as the clamps moved anyway. Then, I wrapped stretchy, stick-to-itself, tape around the crash bars, underneath. This has done the trick for more than two years, no further adjustments necessary.

I describe this in pics and captions in my gallery, currently at http://www.billanddot.com/victory-xct/#26 and the next pic. I've copied those pics below.
