Well took delivery of my 06 Midnight Strat today. ( see my new members intro. post for the story behind the bike)
The bike came with the stock Yamaha windshield loose, as for one reason or another ( unknown to me) there were
no quick release brackets on the bike. There was a guy on CL selling these brackets-off his 07 Strat and I bought
those today. He attached them to the bike for me. When I got home I tried to put on the windshield, but found that
the bottom part of the brackets, attached to the windshield were much to small to fit on the brackets attached to
the bike. So disappointed and also out $100. Why would this not fit if they were both OEM brackets ? or at least I
was told they were off his 07 Strat. Could it be his Strat perhaps had a Memphis Shades shield ( or similar)
Anyway attached some pics of my windshield brackets-not quite sure what purpose these pics will serve !
I did not take pics of the bracket on the bilke-already put the bike in storage. Anyone have any idea's as to the
best next step ? I cannot ride without a shield-don't enjoy it.
