Windshield wobble
« on: June 30, 2019, 12:32:03 am »
Ok, I guess I should have paid attention to the OEM shield before swapping but I am running a Puig touring screen with the air deflector on top. I like it a lot but it seems to move quite a bit even full down. I have checked all the hardware and its tight as well as the two frame mounts that are notorious for missing nuts. Any suggestions? Im more concerned about the stress its putting on the mount more than the shield itself...

Did you check to see that the black rubber gaskets are both in place.  Sometimes those fall out as you're fitting your screen and fiddling with the hex bolts.  If the black gasket/grommet is missing you will get movement of approximately 1/8" despite all the bolts being tight.

I will double check those thanks.

Did you get this fixed?

I too have a puig and I noted this on another thread back in January.

Only issue found is that the Puig is thinner compared to stock in the mounting area.  I had to place 1&1/4 inch diameter 1/8 thick rubber washers on top 2 holes underneath rubber washes already there.  I needed to put 7/8 inch diameter 1/16 inch thick on the other 4 holes in order to get the windshield tightened down properly on the brackets.  I picked the washers up at Lowes.
