Remove your stock windshield. Remove the stock grommets from the stock windshield. Transfer the grommets to the Calsci windshield. Attach your Calsci windshield using the stock hardware.


BMW G650GS 2011+:

First adjust your clutch and brake levers. Your Calsci shield will interfere with the BMW levers at full steering lock unless they are adjusted correctly. Although this can only happen at parking lot speeds, it's still a nuisance. Loosen the screws that hold the clutch lever to the handlebars. Sit on your bike with your normal riding posture. Extend your fingers on your left hand so that they are comfortably straight out, following the line of your hand and forearm. Rotate the clutch lever about the handlebars until it is just barely touching your fingers. Now tighten it up. Same thing for the front brake lever.

Now adjust your mirrors. Move the mirror so that it is in the center of the adjustment range on the end of the mirror stalk. Now loosen up the mirror stalk at the handlebars and turn the stalk until the mirror is pointing in the right direction. If your mirror stalks are turned forwards and the mirrors turned back to compensate, the mirrors will hit the screen.

Remove your stock windshield - this requires a T30 Torx driver. Move the four aluminum spacers and four rubber grommets from your stock shield to your Calsci shield. Mount the Calsci shield using the stock screws. As soon as the screws resist firmly, they're tight.

Remove your stock windshield - this requires a T30 Torx driver. Slide the aluminum spacers into the four rubber grommets. Install the upper two mounting screws first. On the top two holes, use the included 30mm screws. You have a 1/4" spacer and a 3/8" spacer. The longer spacer goes on the right (throttle) side, the shorter spacer goes on the left (clutch) side of the bike. The metal washers go between the aluminum and plastic spacers. Use the included 25mm screws on the bottom two holes to attach your new windshield. Place the 1/8" nylon spacers between the shield and the fairing.


BMW F650GS 2001 to 2004:

First adjust your clutch and brake levers. Your Calsci shield will interfere with the BMW levers at full steering lock unless they are adjusted correctly. Although this can only happen at parking lot speeds, it's still a nuisance. Loosen the screws that hold the clutch lever to the handlebars. Sit on your bike with your normal riding posture.

BMW F800GS / F650GS:

First adjust your clutch and brake levers. Sit on your bike with your normal riding posture. Extend your fingers on your left hand so that they are comfortably straight out, following the line of your hand and forearm. Rotate the clutch lever about the handlebars until it is just barely touching your fingers. Now tighten it up. Same thing for the front brake lever.

Attach the two support buttresses to your windshield. Use four supplied 5mm x 20mm stainless steel screws with a SS washer on each. Put the screws through the windshield from the front on the outer two most holes. Put a rubber washer / spacer on each screw at the backside of the windshield. Place the support buttresses on the screws. The bent flange on each buttress goes towards the middle of the windshield, and the buttress angles downwards and outwards towards the bottom of the shield. Now place a SS washer on each screw on the backside of the flange, and place a SS nylock nut on each screw. Tighten all four screws. These should be tightened firmly, leaving no loose play in the buttresses, but not to the point where the rubber washers / spacers are significantly distorted.

Remove your stock windshield. There are two black plastic "L" shaped brackets connected to the fairing, remove these from the fairing. There will be two small brass square collar nuts and two screws that held these to the fairing, put these away, we won't be using them. Take two 5mm x 20mm screws, four steel washers, and two lock nuts, and put the L brackets back on the fairing. Don't tighten them all the way yet. Attach the Calsci windshield to your bike using four stock Torx screws in the remaining four holes. Now use the two remaining stock Torx screws to attach the support buttresses to the "L" brackets. You'll have to spin the "L" brackets a bit to get them to line up. Now tighten everything up. Optionally remove the two lower Torx screws from the front of the windshield. You may now use the additional two mounting holes in the support buttresses to change the angle of your windshield.


BMW F800S / F800ST:

Remove your stock windshield - this requires a T30 Torx driver. Place supplied foam tape on your instrument cluster to pad it from the windshield. Use the supplied Philips screws to mount the new windshield. The metal washers go on the screw first, then the rubber washers go between the metal washers and the windshield. These should be tightened firmly, but not to the point where the rubber washers are significantly distorted.


BMW K1300GT / K1200GT:

Remove your stock windshield. Attach the new windshield using the stock hardware.


BMW K1600GT / K1600GTL:

Remove your stock windshield, four Torx screws and two plastic covers. Attach the new windshield using the stock screws and the stock plastic covers.


BMW R1150GS:

Remove your stock windshield - four Torx T35 screws at the sides. There are four Torx T10 screws on each side of the windshield holding the black plastic fittings onto the shield. Remove all eight screws and the four fittings. These pieces are marked internally "L" and "R". "R" means throttle side.

Attach the support buttresses to your windshield. Use the four supplied 5mm x 20mm stainless steel screws with a SS washer on each. Put the screws through the windshield from the front. Put a rubber washer / spacer on each screw at the backside of the windshield. Place the support buttresses on the screws. The bent flange on each buttress goes towards the middle of the windshield, and the buttress angles downwards and outwards towards the bottom of the shield. Now place a SS washer on each screw on the backside of the flange, and place a SS nylock nut on each screw. Tighten all four screws. These should be tightened firmly, leaving no loose play in the buttresses, but not to the point where the rubber washers / spacers are significantly distorted. Attach the black plastic BMW fittings to your CalSci shield.

Now slide the windshield / front bracket combination into the bike. Place the four T30 screws through the buttresses and thread them into the fairing. Get all four adjustment screws partially in, then tighten all four.


BMW R1200GS 2004-2012:

Remove your stock windshield - two Torx T20 screws in the front, and two large adjuster knobs at the rear. Be careful with the hardware, there are lots of pieces want to fall out and get lost. We need all these parts. The black nylon covers snapped onto the stock windshield are held together with three snap prongs, visible from the inside of the windshield. Gently pry open the snap prongs with a pocket knife or pen, and the two pieces will fall off the windshield. These pieces are marked internally "L" and "R". "R" means throttle side. Keep everything in the correct order and on the correct side.

Attach the support buttresses to your windshield. Use the four supplied 5mm x 20mm stainless steel screws with a SS washer on each. Put the screws through the windshield from the front. Put a rubber washer / spacer on each screw at the backside of the windshield. Place the support buttresses on the screws. The bent flange on each buttress goes towards the middle of the windshield, and the buttress angles downwards and outwards towards the bottom of the shield. Now place a SS washer on each screw on the backside of the flange, and place a SS nylock nut on each screw. Tighten all four screws. These should be tightened firmly, leaving no loose play in the buttresses, but not to the point where the rubber washers / spacers are significantly distorted. Snap the round plastic rear mounts to the octagonal holes at the rear of the buttresses. The narrow portion goes forwards towards the shield. Slide the aluminum flanges into the round plastic mounts. Finally, bolt one of the lower front mounts to the windshield. The straight rod points in towards the center, and the sloped part angles upwards. Do not completely tighten the bolt, we need just a little free play for another minute.

Now slide the other front mount piece into the support bracket on the bike. Tip the windshield forwards and slide the windshield / front bracket combination into the other side of the front support. Now bolt the other front support to the windshield. Get everything lined up, and tighten both bolts. Rotate the windshield back until the support buttresses are aligned with the mounting slots on each side of the headlight. This windshield is designed to be used in the upper position, although it's ok for you to tilt it backwards. Place the two screws through the buttresses and thread them into the flange nuts. Get both adjustment screws partially in, then tighten both.


BMW R1200GS 2013:

Raise your shield to the highest setting. Remove the black plastic wind deflectors and the clear fly shield from behind the lower edge of your stock shield - four T25 torx screws. Remove your stock shield - four Torx T25 screws holding it on. The four screws are facing backwards. Put your Calsci shield on using the stock mounting hardware. Optionally attach your supplied headlight protector using the double-stick velcro. Line it up carefully, you only get one shot.


BMW R1200R:

Our windshield requires the BMW touring tall shield bracket (#71-60-7-699-573) or (#77-33-7-714-440). It will not fit on the sport shield bracket (#46-63-7-697-210). Install the tall shield bracket according to BMW's instructions. Our shield bolts onto the BMW support brackets. Optionally use Bales Tech spacer to tip the windshield back a bit. Some people have reported that they prefer the windshield like this. Note: The curvature of our shield is different than the BMW shield. This is one reason why ours works better. However, the fit to the BMW support brackets is a bit strange.


BMW R1150R:

Our windshield requires the BMW touring tall shield bracket (#71-60-7-685-197). Note: The curvature of our shield is different than the BMW shield. This is one reason why ours works better. However, the fit to the BMW support brackets is a bit strange.


BMW R1150RT:

Remove your stock windshield. Attach the new windshield using the stock hardware. 


BMW R1200RT:

The RT windshield has to curve to form to the brackets, which takes a day or two. It's important during this time that the windshield be at about 50 degrees or above, or it will crack. If it's going to get cold at night wait until it warms up a bit before mounting it.

Remove your stock windshield. Attach the new windshield using the stock hardware. Put the center two bolts in finger tight. Next get the upper and lower two bolts threaded. The Calsci windshield does not perfectly match the curvature of the mounting brackets, but it will form to the brackets in a few days. Now alternate between the top and bottom bolts, slowly tightening and warping the Calsci windshield into place. Don't over-tighten the bolts, these are not motor mounts.


BMW S1000R:

Using a Torx T-25, unscrew 3 screws holding fly screen to bike. Remove rubber grommits from the fly screen and insert them into the CalSci shield. Insert and start bottom bolt. Insert upper two bolts and start them. After all three screws have been started, proceed to tighten them all to 5 inch pounds. If you're having difficulty getting screws started, wiggle the plastic cover a bit.


Buell Ulysses:

Remove your stock windshield. Depending on the year of your bike, it either snaps off or you have to remove the front fairing piece to get to the nuts inside. Optionally remove the four rubber stock windshield mounts from your front fairing. Remove the top four screws on your front fairing piece. Place the Calsci windshield in place. Use the four supplied ¼" nylon spacers between the shield and the fairing. Use the supplied 1¼" screws and washers to hold the windshield in place. The washers go between the screw heads and the windshield. Two aluminum spacers go into each rubber grommet, then the screws through the spacers. Don't over-tighten the screws. Use a bit of loctite instead.


Can Am BRP Spyder RS:

First adjust your clutch lever - the Calsci shield will interfere with your clutch at full steering lock unless it is adjusted correctly. Although this can only happen at parking lot speeds, it's still a nuisance. Loosen the two T30 Torx bolts that hold the clutch lever to the handlebars. Sit on your bike with your normal riding posture. Extend your fingers on your left hand so that they are comfortably straight out, following the line of your hand and forearm. Rotate the clutch lever about the handlebars until it is just barely touching your fingers. Now tighten it up. Remove your stock windshield, four T30 Torx bolts. Hold the Calsci windshield in place. Replace the four T30 Torx bolts. The Spyder is very sensitive to screw position, so this will be easiest if you get someone to hold the shield for you while you put in the screws. Don't tighten any screws until all four are in place.


Can Am BRP Spyder RT:

Start your Spyder and raise the windshield to the highest position. Turn off the Spyder. Remove the chrome covers on top of your stock windshield, two T30 Torx bolts at the back of the windshield. Pull the top of the covers forwards away from the windshield about 1/4", then the covers slide downwards about 1/4" and pop off. Go slow and be careful to not scratch your windshield. Remove the stock windshield, four T30 Torx bolts. Remove the aluminum spacers from the rubber grommets, then remove the rubber grommets from the stock shield. Transfer the rubber grommets and spacers to your Calsci shield. Screw the Calsci shield into place. The Spyder is very sensitive to screw position, so this will be easiest if you get someone to hold the shield for you while you put in the screws. Don't tighten any screws until all four are in place. Then replace the four chrome covers. Place the lower tab on a cover into the lower windshield slot. Slide the cover carefully up so the cover bottom hooks on the windshield, then the top will snap into place in the upper windshield cutout.


Can Am BRP Spyder ST:

Raise the windshield to the highest position. Remove the black covers on top of your stock windshield - 3mm allen wrench for the screws and you'll need an 8mm wrench to hold the acorn nuts behind the windshield. Screw the Calsci shield into place. This will be easiest if you get someone to hold the shield for you while you put in the screws. Don't tighten any screws until all four are in place. Don't over tighten - wrist tight only.


Ducati Diavel Strada 1200 2013+:

Remove your stock windshield. Transfer the Ducati rubber grommets from your Ducati shield to the Calsci shield. Mount the Calsci shield using the stock hardware. This is not a very easy fit. Two hints: 1) put a little vaseline or WD40 or spit on the screws so that they don't bind to the rubber grommets while you're putting the windshield in. 2) The windshield support brackets must be lined up correctly. The brackets have a bit of play in them, and the Diavels we have worked on had these brackets off by a little bit. I recommend you loosen the top two screws holding the brackets about a turn each, install the windshield, then tighten the screws.


Ducati Hyperstrada 821:

Insert the supplied rubber grommets into the holes in the windshield. Remove your stock windshield. Place a translucent white cap holder on each screw head.

Insert the supplied rubber grommets into the holes in the windshield. Remove your stock windshield. Put a 1/2" aluminum spacer into each upper grommet, and the 3/8" spacer into the lower grommet. Optionally place a translucent white cap holder on each screw head. Put a stainless steel washer on each of the supplied ss screws. The large washer optionally goes on the small screw - this is important for touring windshields. Hold the windshield in place, and attach the lower 20mm screw, tightening it to 4 ft-lbs. Run the two 25mm upper screws through the grommets, and thread them into the windshield mount about 5 turns each. Now tighten the top two screws. The spacer and screw will be at a 15° angle to the grommet, the washer holds everything in place. Optionally pop a black screw cover over each screw head.


Ducati Multistrada 1000:

Remove your stock windshield / fairing combination - four screws underneath the fairing, behind the instruments. Place a translucent white cap holder on each of the four supplied screws heads. Put a 50mm screw through the upper hole on one side of the windshield. Use one of the black plastic wedges, thick part up, to space the windshield out from the mounting cup. Use a 45mm screw on the lower hole. Use washers and nuts on the screws to fasten it. Same thing on the other side. 4ft- lbs max, wrist tight only - too tight = cracks.


Honda CB500X:

Remove your stock windshield. Remove the two rubber screw thread covers from the top two screws. Remove all four screws. Get all four screws started first, then tighten all screws to 3 ft-lbs - wrist pressure only - Do Not Over tighten!

Be careful to keep track of what goes where, there's lots of little bits. Remove the 9 rubber grommets from your stock shield. Put the rubber grommets onto the corresponding holes in the Calsci shield. Loosely attach the chrome lower struts to the bottom most holes on the Calsci shield. The locator tabs point outwards. Make sure the square head bolts are in place on the top holes. Hold the chrome mounting bars in place, front and rear. Use the three 8mm Honda screws to attach the front and rear chrome pieces to each other, making sure the bolts from the chrome lower struts are in place. Now reattach the windshield to your bike.


Honda NC500X:

First take off the rubber thread covers on the back of the top two screws. Remove the four screws holding on the stock windshield. Place a translucent white cap holder on each of the supplied stainless steel 25mm screws, then put the screws through your Calsci windshield. Install the Calsci shield, 4ft-lbs max, wrist tight only - too tight = cracks. Snap a black screw cover over each screw head.


Honda NC700S:

Remove the four screws holding on the stock windshield. Install the Calsci shield with the stock hardware. 4ft-lbs max, wrist tight only - too tight = cracks.


Honda NC700X:

Place the supplied clear 3/4" by 2" spacers on each pair of screws, between the windshield and the bike. Each spacer is made of three pieces of plastic taped together - don't cut the tape. Get all four screws started before you tighten them. 4ft-lbs max, wrist tight only - too tight = cracks. Optionally use a supplied 3/4" washer and nyloc nut on the back of each screw, behind the Honda mounting bracket, to secure them more firmly. Do not use these nuts to pull the windshield in tighter, they're only there to that the rubber well nuts cannot fail. If you over tighten this windshield, it will crack. Snap a black screw cover over each screw head.


Honda NT700V:

Remove the rubber windshield bolt covers - pry them off from the middle edges. Remove the four bolts holding on the stock windshield with a 5mm allen wrench. Use the stock mounting hardware - two hard plastic gaskets, four 5mm Allen bolts - to mount your new windshield. Stretch the rubber bolt covers over the plastic gaskets. You may have to fuss for a minute to get the rubber lined up nicely.


Honda ST1300:

The ST windshield has to curve to form to the brackets, which takes a day or two. It's important during this time that the windshield be at about 50 degrees or above, or it will crack. If it's going to get cold at night wait until it warms up a bit before mounting it.

Remove the windshield bolt covers. Remove the four 8mm bolts holding on the windshield. Keep the rubber gasket in its place. Place the Calsci windshield against the mounts, and use the stock hardware on the top two holes. The Calsci windshield does not perfectly match the curvature of the mounting brackets, but it will form to the brackets in a few days. Push the bottom of the windshield into place and use the stock hardware to warp the Calsci windshield into place. Don't over-tighten the bolts, these are not motor mounts.

Kawasaki Concours 1000:

Remove your stock windshield. Attach the new windshield using the stock hardware.


Kawasaki KLR:

Remove your stock Kawasaki windshield - it's held on with four screws and four well nuts. Remove the well nuts from the stock shield. A bit of spit as lubricant will help. Put the well nuts into your Calsci shield - again, a bit of spit will help. If you're having trouble with this, you can thread a screw into a well nut and use the screw to push it in. This will stretch the well nut and make it fit easier. Slide your Calsci windshield into place. This is a bit tricky, but if you take your time and don't force things it will slide in. Replace the screws - don't over tighten them. The longer screws are for the bottom holes. You may have to reach inside the shield and grab the well nuts to get the screws started. It helps to have a child or small woman handy to reach inside. You may optionally use black spray paint on the inside of the windshield - use several strips of 2" masking tape to protect the windshield. Mask off from the bottom of the vent to the top of the windshield. Lay the windshield down on some newspaper, and spray from behind with any brand and color of acrylic lacquer, your choice of gloss, semi-gloss, satin, or flat black. Allow the paint to dry. It will look fantastic from the front.

Remove your stock windshield - four 4mm allen screws. Attach the new windshield using the stock screws and optional black screw caps. Don't over tighten, 3 ft-lbs is enough. We left very little clearance between the shield and the brake fluid reservoir. If your handlebars were incorrectly assembled at the dealer and were rotated forwards a bit, there can be a conflict. Check that your handlebars are angled slightly back compared to the fork tubes.


Kawasaki Versys 650 2007-2009:

Remove your stock Kawasaki windshield - it's held on with four screws and four cap nuts. Under your stock shield there are four rubber grommets that protect the shield from the metal mounting brackets. Leave those in place. There are three mounting positions for the shield, you may choose any of them. Bolt up your Calsci windshield. Swing your handlebars to full lock. If your mirrors hit the shield, loosen the mirrors where they attach to the handlebars. Adjust your mirror stalks so that they don't quite touch the windshield, then tighten them up. You'll have to adjust your mirrors when you get on the bike.

Remove your stock KTM windshield. This is your chance to clean up under there. There are creases on the fairing about 1" to each side of the headlight. Put a strip of black electrical tape over the top 4" of each of the creases. Mount your Calsci windshield. Be careful - it's easy to push the rubber well nuts into the fairing, and then it's very difficult to find them. Use the two supplied 30mm screws and two 12mm white nylon spacers in the top two holes, with the spacers between the windshield and the fairing. Put these in first, but only finger tight. Next use the two supplied 20mm screws to secure the bottom of the windshield. The Calsci shield only uses the top four mounting points. Finally optionally use the two supplied 16mm screws to hold the bottom two well nuts securely in the fairing. Do not over tighten any of the screws, you'll destroy the rubber well nuts. These should be taught, but not engine mount bolt tight.


KTM 990 SMT:

This is a two-person job, you'll need someone to help. Remove your stock KTM windshield. Use the two supplied 5mm x 16mm screws to attach the support buttresses to the top windshield mount.

Now place a SS washer on each screw on the backside of the flange, and place a SS nylock nut on each screw. Tighten all four screws. These should be tightened firmly, leaving no loose play in the buttresses, but not to the point where the rubber washers / spacers are significantly distorted. Remove the aluminum spacers and black rubber grommets from the center two holes on your stock windshield, and transfer these to your Calsci windshield. Using the supplied 5mm x 16mm stainless steel screws, a SS washer and optional black screw caps, attach the windshield to the center plastic holders on your Tiger.

Yamaha FJR1300 2013+:

Remove the two 3mm allen head screws behind the windshield on the bottom facing down which hold on the painted screw covers. Pull the bottom edge of the covers outwards gently about 1/4" (6mm).

Get all six screws started before you tighten them. 4ft-lbs max, wrist tight only. Too tight = cracks. Optionally use the six supplied stainless steel screws to replace the stock nylon screws. After the windshield is mounted securely, place the two sticky- backed vinyl paint protector strips under the windshield's outside corners, to the left and right of the vent, where they're nearest the paint. When the windshield is in the lowest position, at very high speeds the shield can flex back into the paint. The vinyl will make sure there are no scratches.

Optional windshield rake angle: With the windshield removed from the bike, unbolt your windshield mounting arms. Use the supplied 6mmx35mm screws and 6mm spacers in the lower two holes to rake the windshield back. Or use the 6mmx35mm screws and 6mm spacers in the upper two holes and the supplied 45mm screws and 18mm spacers in the lower to holes for a larger rake angle. For safety use the supplied 6mm nyloc nuts on the bottom of the screws to make sure they never come out. See the on- line instructions for pictures.
