But apparently my Laminar was made to have the air gap, and without it being accounted for - and without upper braces to hold the wind screen up (which Laminar winshields do not come with) - the windshield just flexes backward.
My Bama fairing on the TT has a gap and that makes it work as well, if not better, than the bigger Givi on the DR...
