For what it's worth, I only find the flex to be evident during REALLY high winds. This weekend was probably the windiest conditions I've ever been in, and that Calsci and MadStad were riding point in a gale, basically. In violent crosswinds I'd see a tiny bit of flex. Once I turned south - 70mph into a 20kt headwind - well, it was miserable for me and every component on the bike, actually.
I don't really find it to be untenable though. I think securing a little foam in there would probably help a bit with overall vibration. There is a harmonic or something that makes the shield vibrate at idle - really annoying buzzing sound but that goes away past 2K on the tach.
