Modified this mounting kit for my 750 to fit a Switchblade windshield off a 1300. Here is what I did. Purchased Metric T-Nuts, threaded rod, washers, extra 1 inch or longer bolts to screw into T-Nuts and nuts for the bolts from the hardware store. Orient the straps properly to the instructions. Always start with the bottom strap first. Take one of the bolts you purchased and screw two nuts on to it leaving no more than 1/8th inch of thread sticking past the nuts and lock them together by screwing them against each other. Screw this into the t-nuts opposite the washer like side of the t-nut. Use blue lock tight on the t-nuts to the strap bracket and follow the directions using this in place of the knob ends for now. Torque to 75 inch pounds. Hold t-nut and remove bolt from the t-nut. Cut threaded rod to the length you need. Use lock tight on threads. Use washers to space out as you need and torque the knobs to 75 inch pounds to the t-nuts.
