Just bought a used MG windscreen on the web. The small one.

The screen comes with two brackets but I don’t understand how to mount it on the bike (dashboard area). May be the seller forgot to provide additional screws or nuts.

If some of you could take a picture of this it will help me.

Thanks !

If I recall correctly the mounting brackets go under the upper triple tree steering clamp. I'll shoot a pic later on how I've mounted it on my bike. I'm not sure if there are existing bolts there that you have to reuse or if there should have been new bolts included with the windscreen.

Thank you for the pics.

Now I understand how it works but I still don’t understand how the bracket is tight on the triple tree. I have to check that on my motorbike.

The factory kit includes cap head screws and schnorr type washers.
I had my doubts over security and added a drop of medium thread lock.

Shouldn’t need any nuts.
On the underside of the 1200 top yoke there is 2 threaded holes. The cap heads screw into the holes and pull the brackets up tight to the underside of the yoke as shown in the first photo.
In the UK 1100’s were offered a different style of screen as an MG option.
