Anyone have pictures of how you aligned yours to body? Pushed it back as close to light as I could and tried lining up top curve of plastic with headlight.

Getting close to brake line for disc brake on right. Could push it back a bit further.

Malossi shows the brackets mounted the other way around on their site…

I looked at the picture also. To me it looks like black plastic brackets are mounted with screen mounting screws toward centerline or inboard. You can see the rounded edges of plastic brackets instead of flat edge that's going around mounting bar.


The instructions could have had at least one clear picture or diagram.

Malossi photo shows the metal brackets below the headset mounted in the opposite orientation.

I meant the metal brackets underneath. You have the plastic mounts like in the photo but the metal ones the other way around resulting in "squeezing" the screen…

Got them moved other way.

Still trying to decide if I should be closer to headlight. I would need to reverse mirrors and try moving to riders side instead of wheel side. Would look closer to mirrors in Malossi picture.

Pulled mounting bars upright a bit, technical term, to remove a bit of squeeze, looks better.

Also replaced 30mm bolts with 35mm SS socket head cap screws. I couldn't fit lock washer on 30mm screw that came with it and used medium strength loc-tite. Now I have lock washer and loc-tite.

Put about 20 miles on, windscreen has air hitting about middle of full face helmet. Interesting putting hand up and feeling air stream and knowing that air isn't hitting you in chest any longer.
