Hmm - Dilemma

Okay - so I put on my new Calsci XL windscreen - and wow perfect. A little big, but when touring/cold weather - it is the perfect screen. I really think the cutout is key to stopping the turbulence as when I put my hand over it the turbulence comes. Night and day difference. FYI - the Large Vstream is for sale if anyone wants. I do put the Aztec spacers on for moving the windscreen out so my radar detector and my iphone mount do not hit the windscreen when turning.

OK - here is the dilemma: I noticed the windscreen moving some, so when i got home i was investigating where the nose of the front fairing connects with the headlights - BAMM - the tab is broken from the fairing, hence there is nothing in the rubber pad. It is hard to explain, as I didnt even knew this connection existed. The OEM parts manuals don't show how these two parts work together either. If interested, look under the nose of the fairing from the side where it meets the light housing in the center - you'll see it. It seems underneath the nose fairing there is a little tab that slides into the rubber pad to keep the fairing from boucing around. The tab on the back of the fairing is broken. I know the install of the windscreen didn't do this, maybe it came that way from the factory or maybe when i dropped my bike in the garage and the windscreen support broke - this happened at the same time? T

Sh.. - now what? :confused: A new front fairing is around $564 and the rubber pad is around $5 (for a pack of 5..weird) That fairing is going to be a bitch to get off as just changing the windscreen support took a while due to that bottom bolt.

Any ideas? Double sided tape and call it a day?

I'm going with "dropped it in the garage" for $100.00 Alex. :) Six hundred for a fairing sounds like you're getting off easy, I lost a screw (same ones that hold all the body panels) changing out my headlamps, a replacement cost me $7.00 for one stinking screw! :eek:

I'm not sure by your description what tab you're referring to but if its out of sight how about an aluminum backer riveted to repair it, also there are plastic welders, check the yellow pages.
got any pics of the new screen?
