RX3 Windshield Installation
RX3 Windshield Installation

We’ve had one or two queries in the last few days about installing the windshield on a new RX3. Gerry and I thought we’d take a minute to show you how to do that.

For starters, you’ll find it easier to install the windshield if you unbolt the headlight. You don’t have to disconnect it electrically; you only need to unbolt it and let it hang out of the way on its harness. The headlight is secured by two 6mm Allen bolts (one on either side of the headlight). Just remove these and let the headlight hang down.

The windshield is mounted to the windshield bracket with six sets of fasteners. Each fastener set consists of a rubber grommet, a steel spacer, an Allen bolt, and a shouldered washer.

Insert the grommets in the windshield and put the steel spacer through the grommet with the shoulder facing out (forward) as you see below.

After you’ve done that, position the windshield on the windshield bracket and put the Allen bolts through the steel washer. The Allen bolt head should face forward (as you see below).

Next, install the shouldered nut on the opposite side of the windshield, as you see below. You may wish to use a dab of locktite to keep the nut from backing off, although I’ve never seen this happen on any of our motorcycles.

And that’s about it, folks. If you have any questions, give us a call and we’ll do our best to help you.
