    You need the rubber grommets that go in the holes in the flyscreen. That's really all there is to it, pop 'em in (wet 'em first).

    It was not without a few setbacks, like packing up camp in pouring rain.

    But it all got better

    The windshield is a Slipstreamer Hellfire SS-24V

    http://www.slipstreamer.com/Product/Sport/sport.html

    I have modified it to work with a set of Palmer Brackets, It needed just a little trimming in a few places to fit properly

    [​IMG]

    To get the correct angle on the shield I needed to put the lower mounting points behind the Palmer Bracket and the top screws are on the outside of the Palmer Bracket

    I made some bushings out of rubber and used that to allow the Hellfire mounts to attach to the crossbar. This eliminates most of the low RPM vibration.
    One mistake I made was to cut the side tabs down in length, i should have left them long, You can see in this picture the part that needs the clearance

    It works great and I have no buffeting, very smooth air behind the screen

    Hog Rider,

    I also noticed your windshield cracking around on the lower mounting hole of the palmer brackets. My windshiled also cracked around the same place.

    I did that when I was fitting the windshield,:huh I was putting a bit more tension on it than it really wanted when I was figuring out the original layout.

    The good news is, the crack has not grown in the years of use.

    Broken belt! Fortunately I was only about 20 miles from home. The belt had about 37,000 miles on it, so I'm not complaining. I'd just pulled onto a highway and was accelerating moderately hard in first. About the time the engine hit the torque peak (maybe 4000 RPM?), it let go.

    Thieves made off with my bike during a thunderstorm last week. (A little Buell irony.)

    Gone, but not forgotten. Lots of great memories in the last 7 years.

    Ouch. Mine let go about 1300 miles from home in June. Thankfully Erik made it easy to change.

    Also - sorry to hear about your disappeared Buell, Roostre. Thieves suck. Hopefully your next ride is even half as fun as the Ulysses :)

    I lost mine last week, but only ~100 miles from home so not that big of a deal. I carry a spare when touring, but not on local rides.
