Ditto on no good step-by-step tutorials. Found some threads with pics if that will help.

Search for "windshield AND dennis"

Here's a pic from his post that might help:

Here's a couple of pictures a bit closer. Hope these are of some help. Not the best pictures. My camera is held together with the handyman's secret weapon since I dropped it twice at the last club ride. Crying or Very sad

I left everything kinda loosey goosey until I wiggled it about where I wanted it and then tightened everything.

Anyone want to write a tutorial on this? Smile

Also: I added "windshield install" to the thread subject. Might attract more relevant views.

thank you.
two questions: does the long end or the short end of the elbow bracket go to the mirror set-up?
the rubber round things, the ones with the hole through them, do they go through the holes in the windshield? and if they do, how did you manage to get that accomplished?

1. The long end "attaches" to the windshield and the shorter side connects to the mirrors.

2. Squeeze and force. I put mine in the wrong way the first time... Popped them out and did it again.

somebody did do one in 06. I am trying to remember who. It was a female from Virginia or the midwest. It was an excellent one.

edit: here it is (thanks sunshinen)

Just put mine on last week. The nut and bolt that are wrapped seperate (the bolt has some extra welded goop on the top) are for the throttle side.

Those photos from DennisD are a big help! And like he said, get everything in place with the nuts and bolts snug before cranking anything down.

Before I squooshed the round rubber thingys into the windshield I shot them with a little WD40. Got an edge started and pushed and turned it in. That was the hardest part and it really isn't bad.

A member was kind enough to email me a PDF with the diagram for mounting the windshield.

I've uploaded it here.

Thanks Eric. I used to have one of those. Someone recycled it so I'm going to save this one on the puter.

that diagram is awesome. Maybe we could have reinstalled the screen on the 06 last winter if we had that

Wow! Was this thread helpful! My windscreen came with very minimal instructions. Pictures really help!

When we installed mine we had a 6 inch crescent wrench, the phillips screwdriver from the tool kit, 4 slightly inebriated Peaseys, 3 more deeply inebriated Peaseys to watch and offer "advice", a light on the other side of the driveway (it didn't occur to us to move the scooter closer to the light until the final tweaking phase) doing this at about 10pm on a lovely early summer evening.

It is amazing that we got the thing on and mostly straight! ROFL

So, when you are out there in your driveway cussing a blue streak, think of me and know if we can do it, you can do it too! Smile

Added to FAQ. Hopefully someone would be willing to write up a concise guide? That'd be pretty sweet!
