If you screw up the plastic fastner at the bottom center of the windshield (such as not being able to figure out how to open it), replacements are under $2 at the dealer (I keep a few in my parts bins), but many (including myself) use a plastic zip tie instead on that particular connection, since it can be pulled tighter (IMHO) than an used plastic fastner will and it's a cheap, effective solution. It's also a connection that's not visible from the outside of the bike.

Only other advice: Do it during daylight over a clean work surface, and be careful about not loosing the rubber mounts on the windshield.

Cheers

I just replaced my windscreen and did not have to remove the mirrors. To put he rubber gromets back in, I sprayed it with rust check (it was handy) so they slid in easier. Good luck.

Thanks you all, finally got it done. Tried to change the front turn signals without removing the fairing, but in the end it was easier for me to take them off. Hey Junior, your right about dropping that rubber grommet down inside. I kept that in mind as I was working it and just like golf the thought becomes reality. (Note to self, one dope slap earned). Lucky for me I was able to shake the side of the fairing enough the little bugger tumbled out. Got just enough time for a quick ride, thanks again.
