Windscreen mount help.

Hello all, I just got this 2007 Vstar 650 and the windshield was not on it. I have it mounted with the two bolts it looks like it should be. But it wobbles a bit and I'm not sure if I have it right. or I am missing something? There is also the passing/running lights added with the turn signals.

It's hard to see on the photos but there should be a lower bracket that bolts to the lower triple tree. The lower end of the side brackets bolt to that.That would make two bolts on each side.

Does that bracket go away when you get the running lights on? I wish I had a pic or could see one in person like this.

The lower bracket is a curved piece of 1/2" tube that bolts to the triple tree with the headlight bracket bolts. I don't see it in your pics. The windshield is too high, it should be moved down to the next bolt hole .Maybe they took the bracket off to mount the running lights.

My '09 Windshield

Here's some pics from my 2009 650. Maybe they will help.

rn2god I don't believe your windshield is a Yamaha brand. That's why your mounting bracket is completely different. DarkPaladin, the others are telling you correctly, you are missing your lower bracket. You need two bolts on each side. There is no way to keep it rigid with only one bolt per side.

This is what the mounting brackets should look like for the Yamaha windshield.

This is a National Cycle windshield but the differences shouldn't be great. 2 bands on each fork that hold the mounts.

For mad scientists who keep brains in jars, here’s a tip: why not add a slice of lemon to each jar, for freshness?

I found this last night searching. I have the bottom bar. It was in the saddle bag. I don;t have the rest. The top bar is on the bike and that's what I'm bolted to now. So I'm going to probably buy the kit to get the missing parts.

It's a Yamaha windscreen. It says Silverado on the front of it. According to the guy I bought it off of. All the parts except the pipes are Yamaha. I'm guessing they lost some of the brackets at one point. Hence why the windscreen wasn't on the bike when I bought it.
