Wind deflectors - Witch Doctor's. Highway bars, there are a couple of after marked places that make them and Witch Doc's can probably help you with them. Goggle search.

That I'm not sure of, perhaps someone else can chime in on that.

Check Facebook sale groups and eBay. Highway bars the round style and forged bars. The latter are a pretty penny.

Are you trying to get rid of the helmet bobble effect?
Here is what I use:
253246


253243


253244

253245

Looks too simple, but it works on my bike.
One on each side mounted to the Cheese Wedges as shown with 3m dual lock mounting tape.
Kydex was bought on E-Bay. ~$7?
“3m dual lock” ~$5? E-Bay or some Walmarts.
It is important that the Kydex does not touch the tank.
A 5/16 - 3/8 inch gap works well.
I‘m using a Madstad windshield if you’re wondering .

If this mod works for you, blame Pain who used to frequent this forum.
He did the research, I just copied his solution.
If it doesn’t work, your out $15 .

First I've seen that idea.
Your cheese wedge doesn't fly off with all that stress?

No, haven't had any issues.
I doubt there is much actual air pressure there, that close to the bike, as it moves forward through the air, but haven’t really checked. Or may have checked initially and then forgot I had when there wasn’t much pressure present. Don’t really know.

The cards just redirect the flow of air passing under the tank that apparently rises up where the tank narrows trying to fill the low pressure area behind the fairing causing the turbulence and pulsing. (Helmet bobble)
Or something like that. The deflectors have a very subtle effect. Just stops the helmet bobble. Other than that there is no effect on the air management of the bike that I can tell.

Interesting. Between madstad, hard lowers, and side deflectors I don't have noticable head issues. I'm afraid to manage wind too much then I'll be cooking in the sun so I tolerate a bit of turbulence.

If you do remove your hard lowers and it does give you bobble issues . Try this fix. No promise, but it might work for you.

What are side deflectors are they something you added? My bike came as an 8 ball, not familiar with what came on the tour stock.

IndyVictory has a XCT so I suspect he means the clear plastic pivoting stock wind deflectors mounted on the lower part of the fairing.

Yes, the goal was to achieve less turbulence hitting my head. Its lifting the German helmet causing a parachute effect which grows tiresome quickly on long cruises at highway speeds.

I know I have a taller windshield from factory, but not sure which it is. Im the 2nd owner.

I have the Witchdoctor unpainted set for $199 ordered. Hopefully the site was accurate with inventory.

Anyone know the paint codes/names for the 2015 Red n Gray magnum?? I want to get them painted ASAP.
