Broken Windscreen

Hello
I have a 2003 K1200GT.
It as an after market Airflow windscreen. Yesterday when I was riding, it laid forward onto the gauges and before I could stop the lower brackets broke.
Has anyone ever experienced this problem and figured out why it happened?
Thanks

the mount broke around the screw hole.
I am not sure if the tension spring was changed when the larger wind screen was installed. I bought the bike used from someone.
