Fixing the windscreen

Hi guys new to the forum

I had an off quite a while ago which damaged the fairings on my FZ6. I started replacing them gradually but life got in the way and I've only just got back to doing it again.

All the damaged fairings have now been replaced but I go to put the windscreen on and there doesn't seem to be a way of fixing the windscreen in the holes? The holes aren't threaded so there's no way of tightening the screw to fix the windscreen down. Was there supposed to be some sort of bungs in these holes or something?

It was a while ago when I took the windscreen off to change the cowl so I can't remember!

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the photo - it helps my explanation. It just happens I’m wrestling with the installation of these on my 2005 FZ6 also.

The 2 empty holes next to the mirror stalk (on both sides) are supposed to hold small rubber bushings that are molded around a threaded brass fitting at the lower/inserted end. Each bushing gets pushed into a hole and then accepts a short screw fastening the wind screen to the fairing.

These rubber mountings isolate bike vibration from the screen.

In total there are 4 rubber bushings and their screws, and a single screw (no bushing) at the lower, front point of the screen that completes the attachment to the bike.

I need to replace my set because the bushings have deteriorated, so post any source and part number.
