Loose windscreen bracket

Hey all,
Today I installed a new windscreen and found that the Ducati oem windscreen bracket was loose on the mounting points. The whole thing would clunk around while going over bumps. The whole system is made to flex but this didn't seem right.

OCD sets in once again. I made some little flange spacers to take up the slack. The thing still flexes because it's plastic but at least it's tight now.

I like the bracket that comes with the Puig screen as it braces the windscreen to the handlebar.

Those are awesome! Does it really make that big of a difference?

It took away the clunking but it still has inherent flex. I'd say overall movement is reduced by almost half. I also just enjoy sharing random hyper projects

It's designed to flex some, right? I always fiddle with mine but it seems to have just the right amount of flex that it doesn't contact the dash.
