    I bought an R1100 GS without a screen and am going through the motions of mounting one. I'm a little confused on how it mounts. It looks like the guy had shaved down part of the bracket(the silver one that runs underneath the headlight). I just ordered one of those today.

    The confusion is what goes on now before the windshield. I saw something that kind of looked like a partial melon that goes on there. Could anyone help me with clarifying what that is? Also, if anyone has a set laying around, I'll gladly buy them from you.

    thanks, yeah that piece number 2 is what I’m missing now. I’m not sure what that 6 is now. I’ll have to keep looking. Thanks for the pic

    6 is the knob that you use to loosen the windscreen so you can adjust it. The bolt opposite it threads into it.
