roof rack question

i have the oem base support system for my car. I have a fairing but the adaptor that goes around the rack is too small to fit around it. Anyone know where i can find one that will fit? Thanks in advance

a quick google search yielded some results of ziptie'ing it

and some others drilled holes through the base support and fairing support brackets to bolt them together

Unfortunately this comes up offen. There isn't a larger size to fit out racks. This is just one of those things you need to get creative with.
