Standard m5 thread, length - depending on your spacer thickness, I used 25mm, flange button head in stainless to keep it neat.

My Augustus deflectors worked so well on my 2012 that I added them to my 2013 as well. My wife says she now has no buffeting at highway speeds anymore (but still hates the highway). VERY pleased with the results and they look cool too
How or where do I go to purchase Augustus deflectors?

Just tested the Augustus Deflectors, they really help. Between those and my givi screen, I am really enjoying longer trips much more.

Wind Deflectors my way

After about 3 different variants I have settled on a final design. Attached is a template if you choose to try and roll your own......

1. Roughly cut out patterns
2. Spray one side of pattern with 3M super 77 aerosol glue
3. Apply pattern to Acrylic sheet (Note: leave protective static cling on Acrylic, apply pattern on top of protective coating)
4. Rough cut around template with a rotary tool like a Dremel
5. Carefully sand (I have a 1" upright belt sander) away material until you reach the template outline
6. Hand sand the edges and drill hole
7. Peel off template and protecting coating
8. Heat and bend mounting offset
9. Heat and bend concave radius

I used 1/8" Acrylic sheeting and a heat gun to form.

Finally fixed the buffeting and noise issues. I bought the V-Stream touring windscreen for my 2012 dl650a, which got rid of about 70% of buffeting and noise from the wind. I am able to see over the top by about 2". I saw a used MRA touring auxiliary screen on Ebay, won the bidding, and added it to the top of the V-Stream. That took care of the buffeting at the top of my helmet, adding a good 3-4" of calm air (I am 6'3"). Next, I bought on Ebay a couple of add-on windscreens/spoilers that are supposed to clamp onto the top of the existing Suzuki screen, but I added them to the lower sides of the V-Stream. They were about $20. a piece, and are adjustable. They won't work well on the stock windscreen as the clamp is very large and the screen has creases which distorts the view. I already had the black plastic side Augustus winglets and mirror extenders. I drove the 650 up to about 84 MPH with no issues, but it's a little more sensitive to wind gusts. I also have to look through the MRA screen, which has not been a big issue so far. You can adjust out most of the reflections, and the MRA is well made and sturdy.

Deflectors + loose headlight screw...need help!!

Received the deflectors and installed the left one, no issues. But the right screw on the headlight was free and kept rotating (I had some insurance work done and looks like the dealer messed it up) so I had to force the screw out. And as seen in pics out came the washer and the nut too. dont even mention the damage :( I can live with it if I can install the deflector.

Now, if I try to put the nut and washer back, the nut wont fit in the whole inside the fairing.

The nut is M5 0.8. is that even right? maybe that was the reason the screw kept rotating?

Does anyone know what is wrong or how to fix it?

thks

Well, I did a silly thing and sent payment via PayPal to Augusta for a set of deflectors. Now seeing how long it's been since last mimo was on, suppose I'll be the Guinea pig to see if he still makes them. Dropped an email as well but haven't heard back yet.

Haven't heard back and nothing in the mail. Suffice to say, I dont think the deflectors are any longer available from mimo. Now to get to making my own.
