Pics and/or tips please, mine arrived today and not sure I'm as mechanically confident as you.
I'll be fitting at the weekend :)

Trust me that is the first and last time in my life I have been called mechanically competent!!!  :005:

It really is easy to fit, when you offer it up to the bike it is easy to see how it fits (instructions are clear) and it is just a matter of a bolt either side to hold it on and screw in the sticky out bit ( see!!) that the spring attaches to. Dont forget to put grease in the bushes so it goes up and down easily ( I use copperslip but thats just my personal preference).

The tricky bit is getting the springs on as they are strong but if you use a very long screwdriver for leverage it should help then bobs your aunt fanny and off you go!! :306:

Sounds like I'll manage then.
Copperslip sounds good to me, loctite on the bolts or not?

I did put loctite on the bolts but thats just me with a belt and braces thing although I am sure they would be fine without it.

Fine and sunny this morning
Will order a stand I think, they look good quality and good price compared to genuine!
Would you be interested in a touring screen wedge?

I just bought a powerbronze one.
What type is yours? could be convinced as though the pb is great
I still catch some windlblast to the top of the helmet (funnily enough
about 12cm higher than on the standard - same as the additional
screen height) I note that some have a flip and the pb doesn't
