Put me at the top of the list!
What's the damage?   Maybe I should have asked first ;)
Thanks!

Depending upon cost, I'd be interested in this.  I just moved to a much larger Cee-Bailey's windshield and at freeway speeds it's a bit spooky.

The only problem I've had re: the windshield brackets is the cheesy plastic pieces that Kawasaki used for mounting the windshield.  Where the screws fit into the holes, then through the windshield itself, is a thin plastic hole.  This hole I found on mine, had enlarged itself, probably from vibration, so the screw heads just went all the way through the hole.  My cure was a 3/8" metal washer, that has a rubber grommet attached.  I placed the rubber side against the plastice bracket, and ran a screw through these, into their normal mounting holes. This basically holds the plastic bracket against the windshield in a similar fashion to stock.

Ill make a few of these and see if they sell. Im working on a couple other projects right now. Plus September is a busy riding time. So itll be oct/nov. Its only the middle piece that connects the 2 sliding brackets that we're talking about.

Just suffered the fate of the broken bracket
Please advise how far this has progressed and are you in a position to offer for sale ?
Many thanks
