2016 r1200rt windshield issue

Post by Macr1200rt »


[color=var(--yt-spec-text-primary)][size=var(--ytd-user-comment_-_font-size)]Here's one that has me stumped. 2016 r1200rt 70k miles. About 3k miles ago I noticed that my windshield has about 1/2 inch of slop when it is up 3/4 to full. Meaning it doesn't extend all the way. I have pulled everything out, cleaned and lubed everything, i.e. control arms, springs, brackets etc. I have noticed that the motor hesitates for a quick second about 3/4 up and that's when the slop starts. However, it does not do this without the weight of the windshield on. I have recalibrated with the GS-911 several times (with shield on) but it doesn't fix it.    Dealerships say they have not seen this problem. Has anyone else experienced this?[color=var(--paper-button_-_color)][align=center][color=var(--yt-spec-text-secondary)][size=var(--yt-link-font-size, 1.4rem)]Show less[/color][/size]
