Windscreen Slips

Post by NJViking »



Greetings all,
Just got home from my first real ride on this bike, and have found a number of issues that I'd like to address one at a time.

3. The windscreen won't maintain the set height and will gradually slip down on both sides. I believe the screen is original.

Any thoughts?

Thanks John,

That's perfect!
Do those screws live behind the mirror boots?

Yes
Those screws are under the rubber mirror boots and plastic trim rings

I recommend putting blue tape on plastic trim parts so not to scratch them while working close to them
Don't ask how I know

Figured I should put step 1, more pictures more help
Or so I think

Have fun
Take Care

Thank you my friend. I see now the mentioned trim ring.

I just went down to the garage to do a seat-of-the-pants check on lever preload, and there is pretty close to zero on both sides. This will be a quick fix, next time I have my toolbox out.

-Cheers
