For those of us here of the DIY persuasion, here is a link to a horribly translated Japanese post for making your own SW wind deflectors.

You're gonna have to use your imagination here, but I'm sure that you'll get the basic idea

Hope this inspires someone.

I used Google Translate:

Japanese to English translation

Bonbi Recommended for those who like me say I buy high-side visor 付Ketai.
The total cost is less than 3,000 yen. Time is 2 hours.
Also available in color. But unfortunately no silver.
Durability has been tested in the fall is Sukabu (laughs). Reduces the body stick to the wound.
The larger market and made impossible (high canopy effect.)

Materials
Polypropylene (PP) plate 1mm thick, 900 × 900 ¥ 980
PP plate with scissors is soft enough to be processed.
Aluminum tape (PP in order to look great and body plate junction) ¥ 100
Tsutomu Tsuyoshi sided tape (Seriously powerful, indeed Daiso) ¥ 100
Automotive door molding (PP This soft, the stronger the plate.) ¥ 600
Clip code (for fixed visor) ¥ 200
The cut-size paper do I print to rely heavily on the second full-size photo.
I'm okay with such third photos? You might believe that
130 km per hour highway driving rain - no problem about 90 miles an hour.
So I'm still trying to secure half a year. Also passed inspection.

Comments selfish fish
The idea is to use code like the clip!
Commercial side of the visor will also more than 10,000 yen. Of course, I hope the design is pretty good price.
If you like your own, try to challenge Why not?


It makes sense - sort of!

I did not post this in the How to because I have not sourced a materials list yet. Once it is a kit I will move it there. For now it is for your reference only.

At one time there was a set of leg air diverters made by 3Brothers. They were made out of a substantial rubber material, at first like I was going to make a pair because I thought they look great and (if they worked) would be quite functional. Being a little impatient, just just ordered them up on Ebay for around $49 bucks. They were very easiy to install and after five years are holding up well and work perfectly. I usually leave them on all year, but sometimes I take them off at the heat of the summer for more airflow because they do block a good bit of wind and (water)! They are no longer are available but with a little creativity they would be easy to make. I've included some pics of mine to give you an idea of whats involved.

Kinda late to this old thread but I fabricated similar wind deflectors using black 4" rubber base board material from Home Depot (comes in 4' lengths) and used a 10" hacksaw blade for the "support bar". The support bar is kind of springy and keeps the deflector from folding-in at freeway speeds.
