Apply 2 layers of masking tape on the convex surface, mark a line below the 'duck-tail' (on a Gen 1) which causes the buffeting & saw it off. Owners do this kind of stuff all the time.
If you don't like it yet, saw it off even shorter.
On a Gen 2 there is not much lip or 'duck-tail', but enough height to shorten at least twice. 3 times if you also trim the pointy fairing parts off.
Your bike, your way.
