Now to see if they make a difference.

thanks for help.
If the wind deflectors are installed correctly then there is no need to drill and zip tie anything. I put on and take off my hd wind deflectos in seconds and I never drilled or put any zip ties on the deflectors and I been using mine for over 2 years now.

You've done them right - for some bikes, and it has something to do with the tank safety recall, the bolts are too big so the small clamp doesn't clamp on. I did what you did - drilled a hole then zip tied it on, and it is nice and snug.

1. I could not find anything the clamp would go around. The tab on the tank is too big. The bushing between the tab and the frame is also to big. The rubber cap on the head of the bolt is about the right size however it does not stick out far enough for the clamp to grab onto it. I Took it off and tried the clamp on the bolt itself but it would not stay. so I slid the deflector closer to the tank and let it rest on the bushing. and then zip tied it. It is probably a little further forward than intended, but it isn't going anywhere either.

2. In the picture linked in post 14 I can see the clamp going under the rubber cover and attaching to something. On my bike everything between the cover and the frame are to large for the clamp to go around. So I just let it butt up against those parts. I don't think it is going anywhere.
