Has anyone been able to locate the vent or canard side light replacements or were they one offs?

Lots of random carbon bits here: http://one-jp.com/seller/dmknk120/lots

It was tested in 300 km speed close at my vehicle, but the front of the ground feeling has increased considerably
LOL!

Nice find on that Japanese site. Lots of unique and interesting styling and aero bits.

canards are interesting and somewhat obscurely not primarily to create downforce on the front axle
but rather to smooth the air flow past the wheels and reduce drag/vortices
