  • Torque specs for windshield.

    Are there any specs on the windshield through bolts? Hate to crack my new to me Clearview when I mount it. I was thinking a little blue Loctite wouldn't hurt either.

    Nothing specific in the manual for the windshield.

      If you use loctite on the bolts make sure you don't get any on the windshield, the solvents in it will attack the plastic.

    My CLYMER Manual simply says Tighten Bolts Securely .

        I would use the TQ chart that is posted above. Tq specs are for the bolt size not the object being bolted down.The object being bolted has been taken in consideration during the engineering process when the bolt size was calculated.

          I do not remember, but don’t the acorn nuts bottom out?

              Yes they do, normally, but that depends on the bolt length. Remember, there should be weatherstripping tape between the windshield and the mounting frame. I think 20 ft/lbs is a bit much....maybe 20 inch/lbs? The blue thread lock (Locktite) is a given, especially with a V-twin.

                I was thinking FP meant the two large bolts that attach the mounts to top of triple tree... If he means brackets that hold the windshield itself then 3/8 and snug... Prob 5-10 ft lbs

                  Yeah I believe he's talking about the bolts that hold the trim and brackets to the shield itself. It does use a rubber like liner between the chrome and shield so I think the values from the chart would be too tight IMO.

                    There should be some black plastic spacers for the oversize slots in windshield that I supplied in a bag with directions. These spacers should be a bit wider than the windshield thickness and prevent the bolts from clamping down to hard on acrylic.

                    I installed a new windshield on my Eluder, it called for 2.9ft lbs, but they were nylon screws. I would think 5ft lbs, (60in lbs) should be about the right torque for 6mm SS bolts.

                      Hey, thanks. As you probably surmised by now, I haven't opened it yet. Today or tomorrow I will.

                    Sounds like a good solution!
