Windshields

I have been looking to replace the windshield on my 2012 FJR with the touring windshield. However no dealer seems to have that year windshield in stock. Everyone has the 2014 on up. My question is there any difference in the the 2 windshields? Other than the FJR logo on the bottom of the newer windshield? Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe any 2nd Gen windshield would fit?

I found this:

Yes, the 2006-2012 (known as the Gen II) are all interchangeable in windshields.
Many people, myself included, love the VStream/National Cycle one.

Thanks Greg, I was hoping to stick with stock, and after the windshield debates on here I rather not start another one. lol

The touring one is taller and a bit wider, so there is more to it than just an added logo.

Actually my concern was the mounting holes for the screws and the brackets. I understand the width and height difference that's why I wanted it for better protection. I wanted to know if the newer ones fit the older models.

Gen3, Gen2 and Gen1 all have unique mounting schemes.... not interchangeable.
Perhaps you want to consider a deflector on your existing windshield, it does improve things a lot without trying out a bunch of windshields. I'm a convert.
For Gen2, many liked the Cee Bailey's but no longer available.... V-stream is a good option IMHO.

Sorry I’m slightly off topic but where might one find replacement screws for a gen 1 windshield? I’m not sure if they’re any different than the others but I just wanted to clarify. I seem to have lost one and I believe they’re plastic. Thanks.

Maintain universal balance

They can be ordered at any dealership or online distributor. This is one of those items that I keep several on hand. I'm always adding little things like these to orders just to have them.
