I'd hate to think of the dual lock failing at 100 mph. Has anyone with a lip experienced it comeing off at speed?. Maybe add some dual lock on top of what is supplied? Or is there no more surface for additional DL?.... Captain, I'll be eagerly awaiting your evaluation.

I've had one come off at speed on my ST1100. I happen to be looking at it just as it was letting go. Being very lucky I actually caught it with my left hand as it popped off and pulled it down into my lap without loosing it.

This was my fault. You will all learn, hopefully not the hard way that these 3-M buttons are good for just one try. If you start moving things around looking for the right spot and using the same 3-M buttons each time you too will get to see the LIP let go and sail high above you head and disapear behind you.

What you need to do is find the sweet spot and then install all new 3-M buttons and then leave it alone. And as mentioned ther is a cure time for the 3-M buttons. The ones on my GSA have been there for over 2 1/2 years.

I installed mine at 60F and got on the freeway 10 minutes later... I'll keep a hand up all the time ready for a save, and place an order for some 3M dual lock worry beads!

I've had one come off on a serious washboard dirt roads. I now remove the LL prior to going into the dirt. It was not the Dual Lock that failed, it was the adhiesive between the dual loack button and the windshield. I install "new" buttons after that.

just curious.

I think your going to find that ducking down brings it in closer to you.

For the ST1100 Andy made a Shield LIP combo. The windshield was not as tall as stock and angled back bringing the top of the winshield 5" closer to the rider face. With the addition of a LIP it was and IMO the best setup for the ST1100. Smooth,quiet, and almost zero turbulance. All this while still being able to look over the top of the windshield. I'll swear by it and would not ride without it for the 6 years that I owned the bike. First thing I did when I got my GSA was to stop by and see Andy at Laminar.

Now that I know exsactly where it needs to be on my stock shield I have been tempted to do away with the 3-M buttons. Make up some spacers/buttons from black teflon, drill a couple of holes on each side and install some flush fasteners. I've seen this done. The one on my GSA has never come off yet but this would make sure that it would never happen.
