The brackets should attach to your triple tree and attach the windshield to the brackets. YouTube has videos on various installs.

The top bracket is bolted up under the top tree and uses the bolts for your riser's ,(pic1) and the bottom one uses the bolt the hold the head light (pic2) the shield bolts to the side straps.

Googone or any non-solvent based fluid will work. When I mounted the fairing on my 950 I mounted the brackets first, then attached the fairing.

To remove the stickers a product called GooGone has worked well for me. There will be a lot of opinions of this but to protect from bugs and dirt from building up on windshield I keep mine waxed with regular car wax and works really well.
Do not use any strong chemicals on it. My windshield will tilt some forward and aft as the top bolt holes are elongated. For me with windshield tilted slightly aft there are less turbulence. The angle of my windshield is just about the same angle on the front forks. I'm sure the height on the windshield and how tall the rider is will very the angle some. Just play with it to see wants works for you.

Regular car wax and rain-x is what I've used for the windshield on my fairing with great results. Excellent suggestion lesblank.

The hardest part is braking the bolts and/or the nuts loose holding the riser's
