Givi 755 Mounting

I know some folks around here have a Givi 755 windscreen, and I am hoping to get a little feedback in regards to the mounting of said windscreen. My issue is that I can't seem to mount the windscreen in a position where the windscreen is completely on top of the headlight (this is with the 919 specific mounting brackets). The way it is mounted right now, the front portion of the windscreen is over the top of the chrome headlight rim, resting on the actual headlight itself. I have gone on numerous highway runs and everything is completely stable (nothing shaking or anything). Is this a common issue with the 755a? It is not causing any type of problem, I am just curious as to why I cannot find a bracket position which positions the windscreen on top of the headlight instead of in front of it.

I will check how mine is lined up in the AM. I think it is on top of the headlight though. The only problem i have is a vibration problem sometimes. It makes a ticking noise because the brackets are banging up against the headlight assembly. Do you have the right brackets? If not I have a set sitting in my closet they sent me 2 when I ordered them.

I had the same problem with the ticking/ vibes at certain RPM's with my windscreen. A couple of these at the points where the windscreen contacts the speedo fixed it for me. You could put a couple where it hits the headlight too. Got them at Lowes.

I am pretty sure I have the right brackets. I ordered form twisted throttle and made sure to also order the 919 mounting kit. I remounted the windscreen this morning and was able to get it over the headlight assembly (just barely, the front of the windscreen is now resting on top of the chrome headlight assembly housing), and after a test ride I did not notice any vibration or anything. It is still not perfect for how I want it, but if I play with it and maybe even bend the brackets a little I think I can get it pretty spot on. Thanks for the help.
