First, put a washer on the underside of the mount (below) the slots/hole for the well nuts. No chance slipping through that way. In fact, MadStad mounted mine and that's what they did.
As far as buffeting... N model? seems more complaints for un-faired. You mentioned height, but you need to play with angle as well. I am on a faired and have the angle all the way down and even ended up putting shield in shortest position.
Also check where buffeting is coming from. May be coming from below and hitting you coming up. Move your legs around, move back, forward... change sitting position and try to locate where most of the buffeting is coming from.
Not sure if effective on the N, but the MadStad helped me so much for head on wind, I started to get buffeting from underneath which is why they now have "lowers."
