So I notice the left side of my windshield and outer fairing vibrating like crazy as I'm getting off the interstate on the way to work. When I get into the parking lot I notice a little more gap between the inner and outer, pull on the outer a little bit and it's not secured any longer. The screw in the inner is still there. It looks to me from the little gap I can pull out that the outer fairing is broken and the screw isn't attached to the outer anymore. Of course there isn't a torx that fits on the tool kit Harley gives you. I talked to Hoosierboarder and he agrees something is very weird. I stop by his house after work because he's an expert at taking fairings off and sure enough the, I don't know what you call it, "cone" I guess, where the screw threads into is broken off the left side. It's starting to crack on the right side. The service guy at the dealership wasn't sure if ESP would cover it. The finance guy sent me the ESP contract instead of me digging through my files to find my copy so I will be reading it next to see if it is possibly covered. Haven't heard of this happening before. I could see stripping the threads out since they are plastic, but it's definitely not over torqued. I've attached picture to try and illustrate, I'm not a very good photographer, but I think you can see the issue.
