Woohoo! It's on! Now granted it's not a fancy $100 mount kit, it's a little redneck, and it cost me a whole $5
After spending some time in the garage last night looking at different possibilities, I decided to take it to the shop where we have real metal working tools to make things a bit easier. So this morning I strapped the shield to the 900 and headed for work. 6am, 40 degrees, and about a 20 mph wind, chilly 15 mile ride to the shop.
I figured I'd tackle the bottom mount 1st. Using the factory lightbar mount pionts was a no go, the bottom of the shield hit the blinkers. No problem, move up about 1.5" and drill new holes. Now in the 1st post you'll see the pics where spacers would be needed, didn't really want to do spacer thing, wait a minute, I'm in a metal shop, take the brackets off the shield, fire up the press brake and make the bend a bit tighter, bottom mount done-
On to the top mount. The top holes on the shield bracket lined up with nothing, except maybe the handle bars, hmmm, that just might work. Made a trip to the local hardware store picked up 2, 1" clamps with rubber isolators, a piece of 1/4" all-thread and some nuts, washers etc for $4 and some change. Top mount done-
Now for the ride home, it was still 40, still a 20mph wind, but now it was raining as well. Oh well, I dressed for it and it was a good test. The shield is very solid and works pretty good, some slight buffeting on the top of my head, but no wind pressure on my chest at all, very different from riding without a shield. It'll definitely make winter riding more comfortable, but come spring it's probably coming off. I prefer to feel the wind, not hide from it, but I'll gladly hide to extend my riding season, lol!
