Foam rubber wind damns, How in the heck do you install these where they stay?

Install them from underneath the front of the fairing

They are a push fit, you don't need to glue or tape them. Fit them from the bottom and push them up, then check at the top that the cables and wires all run freely.

Sorry, I should have said something... I had no idea how to actually solve the problem the Duct tape was just a joke, and I meant to edit to say that someone would be along shortly with an answer...

I used the tunnel fillers for a while, but stopped using them because they pull the cables too tightly.

Would they work better around the cables if they were thinner?

I am thinking about making a set, I have some old junk foam rubber here, should be easy enough to cut to shape to fit.

Are they actually worth bothering with? Do they cause any problems like getting wet and holding water where we don't want it?

My reason for using them is more to stop road junk than wind rain, though for cold weather stopping wind might be good.
I have several times road through new construction where there was loose tar "pellets" and somehow got hit in face.
All I can figure is the stuff came up around the forks somehow since the way I was hit it should not have got past windshield.
Still not sure how it got past my rear fender or lower extension to come up though fork opening though?

No Joke that's my favorite tool. When I was in the Navy we called it 3000 psi tape. It was on everything like paint.:ROFL::ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:

How do they interfere with the cables? There are no cables anywhere near mine.

They rubbed on the throttle cables on mine. No big deal, I just trimmed a piece out of the foam.

What the heck is with all the animosity. The guy asked a question about his 1800, and I answered.
