Yep, it was me.

This is the fairing as it arrived, totally untrimmed.

Trimmed it down to this, as you can see it's the same as above but I trimmed down the width of it and added the air duct to try to stop buffeting.

Still getting far too much wind noise and, following experements with and without the air duct and with/without an airbox behind the duct to channel the air up I gave up on the duct and blocked it off. Also trimmed some more hight off the screen.

Even with the further reduced hight I still have more wind noise and buffeting than with the stock screen so I will have to try some more variations. Suffice to say that bigger and higher isn't always going to result in quieter and less wind. I'm happy with the "Rallye" look of the fairing but it hasn't turned the Adventure into any more of an Iron Butt tourer than it was
