Screen screws issue.

I've heard that when replacing the screen on a standard AT there is a problem with the screw holder falling down inside the head nose cone.

How do you overcome this if you want to replace your screen but not lose them ?

Any help much appreciated.

Don't take the lower ones all the way out. The holes in the brackets are keyway-slotted, you just slide them down and pull them out.

So remove top bolts, loosen lowers ones, and slide downwards with screen and the screen comes off still with the lower bolts attached ???

After buying an inexpensive packet of spare screw holders (barrel nuts) I put two in each slot. Now, the upper nut cannot slide down and drop into the cavity.

This happened to me and it was a huge pain! I had to take all the fairings off to remove the front cowl and retrieve them. When replacing them, I put a strip of tape underneath each one to prevent them from sliding down.

When I removed my nose cone to get to the 12V Aux plug a barrel plug fell out. Couldn't for the life of me figure where it came from. Then when replacing the screen I lost on of the barrel plugs into the nose cone. All I can figure is that they did the same thing when the put the bike together and I got an extra that I ended up needing!!

I wish I had read this before attempting to fit a new screen on Sunday!
Very pleased that forum had a link to the YouTube vid for removing the front fairing and plastics. At least I was able to corrosion proof all the connectors and bolts in there while I was at it!
