Hello everyone...
I am thinking of ordering a Clearview Windshield for my 2010 650 Executive. My question is - how difficult is it to replace the stock one? I have approx. 4 thumbs :)

Can you use a Phillips screwdriver? ;)

Okay, not hard to do. But one trick you must remember... When reinstalling the four rubber grommets back into the new shield, MAKE SURE to put their expansion screws in first. You will NEVER get then back through the holes without the screws in place, they just mushroom out and won't go in. The screws keep them from mushrooming, and you can just pop them right in.

If you're tempted to pick up a hammer at any point in the installation process, you're doing it wrong. Don't ask me how I know.

Just be patient with the CLearview - I found it was not quite as bang on for the holes as the Givi.

You do need to deal with the grommets. A helper might actually help :D

Thanks for the advice - luckily my next door neighbor is a retired auto mechanic and I am not too proud to yell for help!!!

I found the instructions a bit sparse tho of course they made sense AFTER the fact. :rolleyes:

The issue I had was getting the bolts in all together....had to flex the shield a bit
Been perfect ever since.
Great screen.
