    OEM Folding Windshield

    picked up a OEM folding windshield today. drove around with it up and first thing i noticed was how much heat was coming up around the parking brake. guess i will have to reread Massive's post on adding more to the heat shield. So far I really like the windshield the only complaint I have on the windshield its was the little rubber boots that you mount on the hood. I cannot get them to stick very good. Any suggestions on what i can use to make them stick better? It came with double sized 3m sticky strips. will add a picture below of what im talking about. i dont have them lined up on both sides right now. will make sure i get them matching when i find a better way to keep them in place

    You may have to drill a small hole through the rubber cushions and screw or zip tie them to your hood cover.

    And use silicone, i.e. Marine Goop to seal the holes.

    Beware, my brand new, dealer installed Yamaha windshield would not go back up enough to fasten; would not go under the roof. This was in 95*+ heat after sitting in the direct sun. Once placed back in the shade it worked fine. Of course, there's no way a sane person would run with windshield up in the heat..lol.

    Those adhesive pads have stuck really well to anything we've put them on, so this is confusing. Was your surface cleaned really well with alcohol or dish soap? It looks like there's spray polish on your plastics...I could be wrong about that, but it would definitely keep them from sticking.
