I don't know a trick, but offer sympathy. One of mine was so tight, I rounded the Philips head. Then got a flat screwdriver in, and the screwdriver tip bent (twisted) then another broke before the screw let go.

Good luck.

something that might work, spray thm with some penatrating oil or wd40. take a punch ( drift pin) or screw driver and tap it moderately so that you dont cause damage. keep tapping if a few times and try to loosen, you may have to repeat it several time to get it to work. tap it as hard as you can but not too hard that you break something. good luck

Had the same problem on mine, ended up using a roberson tip (square)#2 and tapping and twisting at the same time. Seems the last person in there had re installed using some blue lock tight. Good luck.

Well after soaking them for 2 days,I used a screwdriver on a 1/4 drive rachet and broke 3 of the 5 loose, the other2 spun & turned from the back so I wedged 2 flathead screwdrivers in to hold it from turning and finally got them broke loose.

Another 15 min. job turned into 2 days:X:X.

But I do like the new windsheild and the Wife says it is Much better on her:clapper::clapper:,so it was all worht it.

Thanks for the help guys.;)

I had the, I guess OEM Stock Windsheild it is a little scratched up, not bad at all, & not the reason I changed it,

I bought the Slim Streamer TALL from Cyclemax because the Wife said on the Wing she was getting too much wind and she would rather ride the other bike......

so I could'nt have that,we took a ride last night and she was pleased,I did'nt like how far it comes back but do like everything else about it and if please's momma it please's me,I have learnt that in 21 years of marriage. :D

well you're right about mamma. is the windshield the same as the tulsa tall. i have that one on mine and the little misses says she gets a lot of wind. i, like you try to please but i dont know if the shorter windshield is the answer. on my 1985 1200 that was not a problem. i think the 1200's windshield was more straight up than the 1500.

I had to use a mini grinder to cut off the head of one of the screws, what sonofagun to do. I cant figure out why they tighten up so much. I put mine on myself and I didnt make it that tight and sure enough it was way to tight to take off with a driver... I put some anti seize on the screws the last time I had it off, hopefully that willl ease my pain...

Not sure if it is the same as a tulsa tall,all I know is the wife said the wind hit her in the face with the oem and our first ride with the new one she said it is not in her face but hitting on top of her head.

I had it adjusted all the way down on that trip,so I adjusted it up all the way and we were gonna take it for a spin this evening,but company showed up.

So we will see tomorrow if it hepled it anymore ,I'm sure it will.

what are ya gonna do with the old windshield? I just "restored " the windshield on my gray 1200. Came out nice and clear but I noticed a lot more of the the refraction (forget what ya call that) effect. it was a mess before. the black all peeled off too and I had to tape that off and spray it with rustoleum gloss.
