Well, I haven't made any more progress on identifying and eliminating the wind noise on the Majesty.  But I did get a mount for my GPS set up and I added some much needed mirror extensions.  The GPS mount is based on a RAM ball mount that attached to the tab on the handlebar.  The mirror extensions are exclusively fabricated for Yamaha and others that use a left-hand thread on the right side.

My GPS mount is similar. I use the ball mounted to a round plate and screwed in the center of the handler bar cover. I use either the long or short ram type extension piece, and super glued a ball onto a plate on the back of the GPS. I tried those extenders for my mirrors, and while they helped, I wasn't happy. I made my own. I also added a piece of lexan, about 3" wide and 4" or 5" long  on each side of the windshield. Since I do quite a bit of super slab riding, they really help push the wind out away from me when at speed. Mine is a touring windshield. I also made some handshields out of some small "L" brackets and lexan, and bolted on at the bottom of the brake lever, utilizing the nut. I shaped the lexan, by heating it carefully. I needed those when I'm up north and riding in cold weather. They really help.  You can also buy some online, but I'm  ̶c̶h̶e̶a̶p̶  frugal!

On MajestyUSA there are complete directions for mirror extenders based on pipe nipples and taps. It might take some looking,but I looked those up for someone else, possibly on this forum. I made some when I had my Majesty. Hated to see that bike go.
