6. See Figure 8. Position lower switch housing beneath throttle control grip. Install two brass ferrules (56508-76) from kit onto cables, seating the ferrules in their respective notches on throttle control grip. The cables must be captured in the grooves molded into the grip.
7. Position upper switch housing over the handlebar and lower switch housing. Route wire harness conduit through recessed area at bottom of handlebar.
8. Loosely fasten upper and lower switch housing screws.
9. Position brake lever/master cylinder assembly inboard of switch housing assembly, engaging tab on lower switch housing in groove at top of brake lever bracket.
10. Align holes in the handlebar clamp with those in master cylinder housing and loosely fasten lower screw and flat washer. Position for rider comfort. Beginning with top screw, tighten screws to 60-80 in-lbs (6.8-9.0 Nm) using a T27 Torx® drive head.
11. Torque lower and upper switch housing screws to 35-45 in-lbs (4-5 Nm).
NOTE
Always tighten lower switch housing screw first so that any gap between upper and lower housings is at the front of the switch assembly.
12. Adjust throttle and idle cables according to the Service Manual instructions.
WARNING
Be sure that steering is smooth and free without interference. Interference with steering could result in loss of vehicle control and death or serious injury. (00371a)
13. Remove cardboard insert between brake lever and lever bracket.
  • Cables should not catch on headlamp hardware or pass in front of headlamp.
  • Cables should not catch on turn signal mounting hardware or turn signals.
  • Cables should not catch on fuel cap or fuel gauge.
  • Cables should not catch on speedometer or tachometer.
  • Be sure cables are not pinched between the frame and/or forks.
  • Be sure clutch cables do not pull tight when handlebars are turned fully to the left or right fork stops.
WARNING
Connect positive (+) battery cable first. If positive (+) cable should contact ground with negative (-) cable connected, the resulting sparks can cause a battery explosion, which could result in death or serious injury. (00068a)
  1. Connect the battery cable, positive (+) cable first.
Assemble Clamps to Windshield
1. See Figure 10. Remove windshield sub-assembly from packaging and place face down on a clean, soft surface with mount brackets facing upward.
2. See Figure 12. Remove both clamp and hardware kits from packaging, and separate similar parts in preparation for assembly.
3. See Figure 11. Assemble clamp assemblies and hardware stacks.
WARNING
The cupped side of the Belleville (cone) washers must face each other and sandwich the windshield mount brackets at each mount point. Failure to orient washers correctly can reduce windshield's ability to break away in a collision, which could result in death or serious injury. (00422b)
4. One clamp at a time, with clamp facing upward and inboard of windshield bracket (2), tighten shoulder bolts (1) enough to hold clamp orientation to windshield during mounting of windshield to motorcycle. The bolts will be fully tightened later.

Install Windshield
NOTE
Keep front wheel straight to prevent brackets from scratching fuel tank.
1. Make sure all four clamps are in the "open" position, then bring windshield (with clamp side away from you) to front of motorcycle.
NOTE
The Lexan® windshield is fairly flexible and can be bent to spread the clamps away from the headlamp to ease installation to the motorcycle. Take care not to scratch the headlamp housing with the clamps while positioning the windshield to the fork sliders.
2. Straddle front fender and check to verify that throttle cables are positioned between the clamp pair on your left (as viewed facing the motorcycle, holding the windshield), and will not be pinched by the clamps. Center windshield around the headlamp and seat clamps onto fork sliders.
WARNING
Pinched throttle cables can restrict throttle response, which could result in loss of control and death or serious injury. (00423b)
3. Starting at bottom (either side) with shoulder bolts loosely threaded, close each clamp, noting that clamps self-align to fork sliders and to each other.
NOTE
Do not tighten shoulder bolts beyond the recommended torque. Over-torquing may cause the clamp to twist on the fork slider, yielding the clamp jaw can occur.
4. Make sure that shoulder portion of shoulder bolts are fully seated in each windshield bracket location. Torque each shoulder bolt to 60 in-lbs (6.7 Nm).
5. See Figure 12. Install windshield bracket edge trim piece (7) to protect against abrasion of throttle cables. The trim should be mounted between clamps on right-side windshield bracket, pushed all the way up to upper clamp mount hardware. Turn handlebars fully to left and right fork stops to confirm that throttle cables move freely.
NOTE
If interference occurs, adjust windshield as needed until proper clearance is obtained. Have experienced Harley-Davidson service personnel correct any problems before riding with this accessory installed.
Remove and Store Windshield
To remove windshield, open four clamps, in any sequence, and reverse installation procedures found in Steps 3 and 4 of Install Windshield subtopic. Take care to not scratch headlamp housing or fuel tank as noted during installation.
When storing windshield, place in a location where windshield clamps will receive the greatest protection. Keep from locations where the windshield may be bumped or dropped. Do not stack anything on top of assembly.
Prior to re-installation after any storage period, inspect clamps and hardware for fastener preload and cleanliness. Each clamp should have a pair of rubber gaskets in the clamp saddle that mates to the fork slider, and should cycle open and closed freely.
CARE AND CLEANING
NOTE
Sunlight reflections off inside surface of windshield can cause extreme heat build-up on motorcycle instruments. Exercise care in parking. Park facing the sun, place an opaque object over instruments, or adjust windshield to avoid reflections.
NOTICE
Polycarbonate windscreens/windshields require proper attention and care to maintain. Failure to maintain polycarbonate properly can result in damage to the windscreen/windshield. (00483d)
  • Do not use benzene, paint thinner, gasoline or any other type of harsh cleaner on the windscreen/windshield. Doing so will damage the surface. Do not clean Lexan in hot sun or high temperature. Powdered, abrasive or alkaline cleanser will damage the windscreen/windshield. Sunlight reflections off of the inside curvature of a windscreen/windshield can, at certain times of the day, cause extreme heat build-up on motorcycle instruments. Exercise care in parking. Park facing the sun, place an opaque object over the instruments, or adjust the windscreen/windshield to avoid reflections. Do not use benzene, paint thinner, gasoline or any other cleaning agents on the rubber bushings. Doing so will damage the bushing surfaces.
NOTICE
Use only Harley-Davidson recommended products on Harley-Davidson windshields. Do not use harsh chemicals or rain sheeting products, which can cause windshield surface damage, such as dulling or hazing. (00231c)
NOTICE
Do not use benzine, paint thinner, gasoline or any other type of harsh cleaner on the windshield. Doing so will damage the windshield surface. (00232c)
  • Do not use benzine, paint thinner, gasoline, lubricants (including Armorall®), or other cleaning agents on rubber bushings. They will damage bushing surfaces.
NOTE
Covering the windshield with a clean, wet cloth for about 15 minutes before washing will make dried bug removal easier.
