At all chance that the bolt near where it was cracked was not tightened down enough? Could it have been the first bolt you installed tightend was the one where the crack occured (I'm wondering about uniformly torqueing the bolts)? Were the holes not drilled aligned with the mounting points?
Also CB's argument is a touch lame. so if I was going 80 MPH into a 40 mph headwind, would the screen be expected to hold up? I would hope CB would have asked to have it shipped back to inspect? If there is a flaw in there design there are liabilty issues. IF they are shipping stuff to Germany and the autobahn in places has no limits, one would expect there product to hold up, or have a warning against excessive pressure/speed
I dunno, sounds like CB just want you to go away......
