    I ordered a new F4 windshield which should be here on Tuesday. Are there any tricks I should know to change this out, or is the process fairly straight forward? It doesn't seem like it should be too complicated.

    I put one on my Heritage last week and love it. Just take your time and lay out the bolts as you take them off a few are longer.

    I replaced my windshield on my '09 Heritage a few weeks back. An electric heat gun will help break the glue loose on the brackets. Take your time & pay attention to the different bolt sizes & you'll be fine.

    I've been looking for a windshield for a year now. I need a stationary shield for a 1997 Heritage Classic. Can't find one anywhere.

    I just received my new F4 winshield. I thought it would come with glue or strips to put between the metal and the windshield. Am I missing something?

    I installed the windshield last night. It went very well and all looks good. Very nice product. Didn't realize how bad the old one was until I took a ride with the new one.
