Piwoslaw - your observations regarding the ventilation slots are correct. I have cosidered closing them off, or redirecting the flow toward the cylinder head to aid cooling, or to the base of the screen to improve the airflow over the top of the screen.

At the moment, I have no problem with either of these issues. I think the vents help to equalise the low pressure area behind the fairing as I can feel no significant buffeting, also I will probably be glad of the ventilation when the weather is hot.

I don't want to do anything which might adversley affect the useablility, it's no use having the worlds most streamlined motorcycle if can't be ridden on the street, or overheats after a fast run. There are compromises that have to be made with regards to efficiency against useablility.
