Straighten the Windsrcreen

I have 2003 K12GT that tipped over. The tall windscreen caught a parked car on the way down. The windscreen is bent inward on the right side. It looks like the right-side arm that adjusts the screen position pushed in. Do you have suggestions to straighten it out? Thanks DG

Re: Straighten the Windsrcreen

Hey DG, sorry to hear about your troubles.

This is the forum for the newer Slant/4 GT bikes, which have a different windscreen mechanism.

You might have better luck in the Other K-Bikes Discussion forum, or the K1200RS/GT (Classic) forum at K-bikes.com, where they know a little more about the Flying Brick RS/GT bikes.

Good luck.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: Straighten the Windsrcreen

I think that a hair dryer blown on the windshield until warm woudl be a start. Stick it in a home made frame and bend it back slowly. Leave in position until the windshield cools down.

Am guessing, but my windshield is also bent and this is the procedure I plan to use.
