Well I was on the fence about this for a while. Went to order it and found out TT was going to charge me 140 bucks to ship it! Screw that. I went down to my local accessory store and they said they could get it at half that. Reluctantly I bit.
Thinking on it overnight I decided "what the hell was I thinking, almost 900 bucks for a wind screen". Called first thing and canceled. "no problem", they said, "Thats a lot of clams". Case closed.
Yesterday I get a call that even though the part was canceled it showed up. Rather then the shop paying shipping back and a restocking fee they made me an offer I couldn't refuse.
Got my fairing sitting there now. Hope its as good as you FF's say!

And if you want stock shield height, you can go:

In the flesh, I really like the look. Gives the bike a mean attitude for sure.
Due to the holiday, I have yet to test it.

huge impovement

First ride out with the TTD3 screen today and what can I say..........It was a huge improvement. The first time I was able to ride with my visor up.
I found that with the screen low and forward was the best position for me but high and forward worked well also.

Can't wait to see were I go tomorrow.

Need help with install

Request some advice from people who have installed the windshield. Left over from the side attachment points of the original windshield are these two square pieces (one on each side), with internal threads, that stick up from the fairing. They appear somewhat impossible to remove without damaging the fairing. My common sense tells me the D3 bracket is supposed to lay flat, since they gave us some protective padding, and with this square piece in place, the flat base to the D3 bracket doesn't touch the fairing at all, except at the point where it would be attached to the squares.

So my question is, did you all thread the bolts through the square piece, and then put the washer and nut on the bottom side? Thanks for any assistance/advice you can provide.

Eric

I tried both and like the oem square brass nuts best. Leave then in and use them instead of the supplied TT bolt. This will also keep the bracket off the painted surface as well as give you more of an support area on the fairing.
In my opinion.

Eric, could you throw some shots up of the nut and other important connection points for those of us who haven't ordered a D3 yet? Touratech's instructions sheets aren't the best. Thanks

Thanks for all of the guidance out there. The suggestion for the rubber washers now makes complete sense to me. Will pick those up tomorrow and attempt a highway test prior to burning down the neighborhood with fireworks. Thursday, I am having my 12K maintenance done, installing TKC 80s, and then heading up to Labrador and Newfoundland for a two week trip.

Have a happy fourth of july everyone...

Also: Those plastic knurled nuts will vibrate loose in quick order. Watch them and take the nylock nuts with you in case you loose them.

If it matters, those brass nuts are only pressed into the fairing, and the fit on mine were pretty loose...loose enough that if I were to bolt down something like in the above linked picture, it would rattle around.

I'd reccomend using a bolt and nut like the BMW touring screen uses at that spot, or at least put a big rubber o-ring around the brass nut or something.
