Hello,
I am new to the forum. I recently started riding my GT L 200, 2006 again and ordered a Vespa windshield from S.I.P in Germany. I have it but the rods don't fit into the holes on my Vespa. I am either missing a part on the Vespa or they sent the wrong fitting. I will attach photos.
Any guidance will be much appreciated.
Tom

You appear to have these sleeves left behind from a previous owner. You're probably going to have to open up the headset to extract.

You might find that they're stuck, hence the reason they are still in there. We get inquiries on a fairly regular basis about sleeves stuck in the headset. Often, some creative solutions -- or just brute force -- are necessary to get them free.
