Givi Windscreen/Honda VFR
Click any image for a larger view.
Installing a windscreen (windshield) on the Honda VFR is fairly easy. It doesn't take many tools, and can be done as quickly as 10 minutes. You need to be careful putting the smaller screws back in since they are at awkward angles and easy to crossthread.
There is also some slight bending of plastic body parts, and that needs to be done very carefully.
Start the job by pulling back the rubber mirror covers, and removing the bolts. I seem to remember that these are 10 mm bolts. There are arrows in the metal plate under the mirror base that point up and forward.
There are two screws to remove in the black trim inside the cowling.
When removing the outer screw, put one hand on the outside to oppose the force from the screwdriver. In other worsds, don't push on any plastic parts that might beak. Don't stab yourself.
My bike had a stock replacement Zero Gravity windscreen. Here is what the inside of the cowling looks like with the black plastic trim/retainers removed

Rear right mount. This is just plastic out here. I think the captive nut that the screw goes into is metal.
Here the Zero Gravity SR is laying on top of the Givi D190S. The Givi is much taller and has a Euro flip.

This is the Zero Gravity that came on my bike. I think it is a SR stock replacement, and not one of the ZG racing screens.

Taken from the front, this is the front (outside) right part of the VFR cowl.

Outside, front, center detail.
Outside front center, from the top. Just so you see what the gaps are like.
From the inside. That tab hanging down from the mounting tube is where the front trim screw goes. This is a funny location, so the screw is easy to cross thread.
Front inside. Another detail view.
Outside, right, looking forward over the new Givi wind shield.

Front, rear, left windscreen detail. This is the Givi, but both windscreens are the same here. Fit and finish are great on the Givi and the Zero Gravity.
Outside (left?) mirror mounts. The windscreen is behind this the red plastic of the cowling.
