Bought these a while ago and finally decided to look at fitting them.
The kit comes with 2 pathetic little studs to hold the Deflectors in place!  I know that they are attached with the adhesive strips but if that was to fail for any reason, I doubt that the 2 little studs would be strong enough to hold them.
The engineer in me says use half a dozen self tapping screws.
The question to those that have fitted them - What did you Use?

When I received mine, I thought the same thing.
I settled for a SS sheet metal screw at each end, and used the adhesive tape as provided.
It's worked without any issues since last year.

They will definitely help with the trouser flap! Smile

I've had mine on my scoot for a year now. I followed the installation instructions to a 'T', and used only the 3M adhesive supplied, as well as the single 'stud' that goes on each side.
I can left the adhesive to 'cure' in the warm summer sun for a day before riding the scoot and have had not troubles at all. Here in the Canadian prairies where we regularly get winds, sustained at 35 kmph with gust to 70, I not had any issues. I've also ridden at speed near 180 kmph for extended periods of time and have had not issues at all.

Mine worked fine with the adhesive strips, just make sure that you do it in warm conditions and give the adhesive time to harden.  The plastic stud is removable so that you can take off the body panel it's fastened to when needed.

One of my plastic rivets keeps working loose, so I'll be using a s. steel self-tappers top and bottom.

The self adhesive strips have held fine. In fact, they would be the biggest problem if I ever needed to remove/replace the deflectors.

Hi, I've seen them on eBay. Just wondering, are they any good after fitting them on. They are very expensive £109.00 . I wanted to be sure they are with the purchase and not just for looks. Thanks

One of the few add-ons which really are of benefit - worth every penny.

That's the impression I got. Just purchased one of the last two sets I could find online: Ebay item 161965937250
