    Ok I have fitted my drivers screen, woop. The only problem is that it rubs on the front rack slightly. Wally, on the bottom of the headset there are those fixing nuts which you mount mirros and screen to. Can you tighten these up to raise the yogurt of the screen?

    What's yogurt got to do with owt?? Laughing

    I assume it's that pesky predictive text and you meant height?! I actually had mine attached with two bolts going down through the headset base and a pair of gudeon pins as spacers. You could do the same with some copper pipe chopped to the required length, or use a pair of the long cylinder cowl spacers (M8) from a P2, or if they're too short use the longer T5 type.

    Oh and upload a picture and all mate!

    Yes hieght. I fixed on with two bolts through the mounting nuts on the bottom of the headset. But one side is slightly lower and rubs. I think if I tighten these they will go further into the headset? Thus raising the highroad that the screen is fixed at?
