    While riding yesterday I noticed the windshield had more viberation than normal when I looked at it the inner fairing nut had pulled out. Any suggestion on how to secure this nut back in place to stay

    If the barrel type nut is still OK, Epoxy it back in

    Happened to me as well, Harley has a over sized barrel just for that reason.

    I super glued mine in a few years ago. I have R&R windshield about a dozen times with no problem. Don't overtighten, 19 inch lbs. is good. Harley makes threaded insert repair kits if you want.
