I'm 5 foot 10, stock screen is fine for me but at your height I would suggest adding an MRA spoiler to the stock screen rather than getting a new windscreen completely.

Too late, i went with the Puig, fitted it today and it's quite a bit taller than stock, will be testing it out tomorrow.

Try to swap the left and right hand side bolt.
I had the same problem with the right hand side.
After swapping the bolts, it's all good.

Cheers

Can you explain how that helps?, i might be a bit stupid here.

Do these bolts come with the heed bars or are they the engine bolts reused.

The HEED bars come with their own bolts/spacers and it seems that the spacers are location specific.

It was installed by the local dealer and assumed that the RH & LH spacers that came with the HEED bars were the same length.

I was wondering why the RH side bolt stuck out and it made riding uncomfortable.

I then checked the instructions and emailed HEED Poland and they advised me to swap the spacers.

Please see attached my email correspondence with HEED and the installation instructions. Email addresses were removed.

Take note of #5 & #8 on the installation instructions.

Hope that helps!

Are there listed torque specs also?, can't find instructions to DL.

Will i have to loosen other bolts before i tighten these back up?.

From what I can remember no other bolts had to be loosened.

HEED doesn't provide the torque specs.
I used the specs provided by Triumph which was 48 Nm if I remember correctly.

Send me your email via PM and I'll send you the pdf file for the installation instructions.
