Bent fairing bracket
Years ago my '03 K1200GT fell onto its right side and damaged the windshield and the right arm that supports it. I believe this is called the fairing bracket. The bracket was welded to repair it, and I straightened the support visually. All was well for several years, then by Aeroflow windshield broke at the support bracket level. I replaced it with a tall Parabellum; after about a year, the lower attachment point on the right support arm broke.
I'm guessing the support arm is not as straight as it needs to be, although it looks OK. Is there a way to measure the distance(s) between the 2 support arms to assure they are properly aligned? Is there another method to do this? Other suggestions?
A new fairing bracket is over $1200, and I can't find a used one.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
