Bajaworx buffeting

Installed bajaworx and worked great for around town riding. No good for me at highway speeds however, lots of noise and buffeting. Took it off and problem solved... Any others experience the same?

Exact same experience here with the 305 kit... Enjoy it, but not sure if I would do it again after taking the mpg hit. 13/42 gearing alone would have suited my needs better.
