My brackets are channel down. The back and the front seem a little "off". I am going to try to loosen up all of the mounts to the rollcage and see if they just tightened them up wrong.
I just cropped some pics to post.
It really does look like the back of the roof is just the center mount. Not sure about the front, but if the back is squeezed in, the front could bow in some.
I tried to straighten it out.
I think mine is warped.

Mine are channel up. Everything works although I have a bow in the roof on the passenger side. I think it's more of a roof problem than the brackets. Super ATV windshield barely clears it but I have enough adjustment room to make it work

Our roof was crooked from the dealership. We had them order a new one and everything is good now. It's hard to see in this picture, but it was bowed down in the middle. Dealer said that some of the roofs were coming from the factory that way.
Mine was also and still is. I just never worried about it
I recently trailered mine and noticed the center roof seemed to be flapping excessively. I looked and as crazy as it sounds, I have no brackets installed at all. In fact the cross arm is installed backwards so there would be no way to mount the brackets without turning the cross arm around as the holes are facing backwards. I suspect the dealer installed it wrong and didn't want to correct it and just the left the brackets off hoping I didn't notice which is exactly what happened. I wouldn't have known if not for this thread. So I went to the dealer and they had two X2s sitting side by side. Unbelievably, one had brackets installed channel down and the other had them installed with channel up. To me channel down looked correct with the front roof line even and horizontal. The channel up install sagged in the middle as the brackets were pulling the center of the roof down and you could really notice it in my opinion. I ordered the parts and will install channel down and see how it looks after I correct the cross arm. I don't have a windshield so I don't have to worry about it fitting tightly. Needless to say I'm not too happy with the dealer for a variety of reasons but I won't be back to these guys in the future. One question for the experts is there any issue with loosening and re-tightening the roof screws holding the clamps in place? Thanks
2019 X2 SE. Channel legs are up. Roof line is perfectly straight. OEM full windshield fits nice and tight.
