Windshield screw options

My 2004 FJR needs some windshield screws the plastic ones have broken is there an option at the hardware store to replace these plastic parts that you could steer me to.

they are plastic so they shear off in an accident I think. If they are breaking they are probably too tight

Check McMaster Carr. They will probably have them, but you might need to buy way more (a bag of 25, for example) than you need. Iíd just suck it up and go to the dealer.

When I was a track-a-holic on my R1 & R6, I used to think that the FJR was an old man's bike. Then I got one and absolutely love it. Hey...wait a minute!

You are probably right on the first part, but itís interesting that I have owned quite a few other motorcycles that have windshields and the FJR is the only one that has not had steel screws.

As to the second part, you are probably right in what you said, but my problem is that the heads strip easily - meaning where the Phillips screwdriver fits.

1. They are indeed designed to shear off in an accident. Better to break screws than decapitate the rider.


2. If they are breaking or stripping you are over torqueing them. The spec is in inch pounds, it will feel like they are not tight enough.


3. Bike Bandit or Ron Ayers for decent prices and fast shipping if you don't want to pay your dealership. I ordered more than I needed so that I always have spares on hand.

Never run out of ideas, traction, and real estate at the same time.

I believe all the Gens use the same windscreen fasteners.

I have only had one break, ever. And I think that was fatigue from having been removed and reinstalled so many times. I got a handful of extras (OEM). Having spares is like a talisman to keep primaries from failing.

You should replace the screws with exactly the same part number. They are engineered to sheer and protect the windscreen mechanism from expensive damage.

Yeah, having a set of spares is a good idea. I would actually recommend to put them in a little bag and throw in the glovebox or under the seat. If a mishap happens on the road (i.e. unlucky bike drop or hitting windshield against something) and the screws break off you would be very glad you have them.
