I still think some of the awkward little turbulance comes from the bottom sides and travels up. I made some 'wing' attachments for the stock 800 shield and it made a big difference. I might mock something up for the D3 and see if it makes it even smoother.

I've got some different fasteners ordered as an alternate to the slightly knurled round plastic tightening knobs. I'll post a report when I get them and if they work I'll post where I got them from. They're about $1.50 each.

Oddly enough i'm almost preferring the lower position on the highway too.
