think i have found the problem  they drilled center holes to big  the screw  just  falls thru it so it will not support  the shield even with washer in place  be on the phone to  calsci monday

The only thing that grabs the shield is the plastic washers. Mine is the same. Just tighten them to 4ft lbs. then put on the brackets and tighten to 4ft lbs also, and ready to go.

I have bolted three different CalSci windshields on my C14. I used the factory plastic washers without any trouble. Although the holes were a little large. But I think it allowed for easier fitting on the bike.

Yes, stock plastic washers work fine.

Interesting that it's 4 ft./lbs. for the bolts holding the windshield onto its frame, but only 13 in./lbs. for the header bolts.

talked to mark yesterday  re my calsci ws  its appears  that  the kaw is .210 thick his is about .187  so with this difference in fact the screw will not tighten down with factory washer he also stated that  the thickeness is un unusual with  the kaw  shield and has found them thinner,at times in the area of .157 he then said  perhaps needs to send new washers with the  zg1400 shields
