Mine did the same.  Only thing I did was get in habit of holding the windshield button WHEN you turn engine off.  It will stop shield in that position.

Get a different windshield. You'll thank me for that suggestion on your first ride! ;D

Advance Sport Touring sells 2 inch pullback raisers. No interference with windscreen using those.

Cheers...

Well that's the set I am using and it interfered with stocker.  Switched to CB and not hitting.

I have theirs 2 inch pull (not 2 inch raisers) back and clearance is OK. Things are strange, indeed!

I have these also and no problem with windshield clearance.   
Could you slightly bend or turn the brake fluid bracket for clearance...I don't remember how it is made and I'm not near my bike for reference.

I have 2" risers from Helibars.  The stock windscreen when fully down will barely touch the clutch reservoirs when the handlebars are turned to the extreme right or extreme left position.  This does not cause any problem.  I recently installed a Puig touring windscreen and it does not touch the reservoirs.
