Windshield Loose?

Postby rabbott5 » Tue Nov 01, 2011 5:34 pm



I picked up a nice (only (9000 miles) used 2008. I have noticed a problem with the windshield. No matter what height the windshield is at, the right (throttle side) seems loose after it is locked down. Any ideas on what I should be looking for before I remove the front cover?

I too have an 08, and mine was loose also on the right side. I figured the PO had done something to it. I recently bought a windbender shield and during the installation process, I found the screws holding the right side was simply loose. Bet if you popped the cover and tightened down that screw, you would be a happy camper.

Well I found the problem. When I pulled the front cover off, I found that the cam lock was out of place. At the pivot the bracket is suppose to be in a slot. I pulled it apart and reshaped the assembly so it would fit properly. In the service manual it actually makes a reference about the part fitting into the slot. Any way, problem fixed.
