Yep, as Spencers696 said it definitely should come with the bike. Make sure to get it from your dealer. You also should have gotten two plastic spacers/washers for the seat in case you want to remove the cowl.For those that have taken the micro windscreen off your 696/1100, where did you get the plastic instrument panel cover to cover up the wires?
yeah, mine were zip tied to the instrument panel cover. and also the two screws for the cover WERE already screwed into the instrument panel..
They are just two plastic trim washers that go under the fastener for the rear cowl if you run without it. Black plastic, beveled, about 20mm across. When delivered mine where taped inside of the instrument cover.
correct. you remove the brackets to make room for the cover and there are two inserts that the bolts that hold the cover on screw into. IIRC they're M4's not the M5's the fly screen ones use.Does the instrument panel cover not screw into the same holes as the fly screen? It looks like the fly screen is held by 4 screws, and the panel cover by 2. When the fly screen comes off, what becomes of the bracket it's screwed into?
on mine, the two bolts were already in the holes that you'd use for the instrument panel cover. yours weren't in there?OK...who was the brilliant engineer that didn't use the same size bolt to hold down the instrument cover and the fly screen? I had to go get some new bolts to fit the inserts for the cover.
anyhoo...I think my 696 looks better w/o the fly screen.
