Default New Gustufsson install question

So I removed the useless manufacturer shield and need to know if I just wiggle the new one into place or is there any trick to it? It seems a little bit thicker.
By the way I got the Black Opaque and it is Black!! Should look sweet.

You have to remove the stock brackets first (at least on my 2013 I did).

Then just wiggle the base of the shield between the outer and inner fairing. Yes, it is a bit thicker than the opening.

You only have to remove the brackets on a tour model.

Yep, brackets on tour model only
Gustaff and Windvest, (I have both) is just a little bit tighter fit. I have to lightly tap on the top of the shield, to get it down in place

Does anyone know if the Gustafson 7" tall stock shield is shapped the same as the factory one or does it have a "flip"? That is what I am looking for, I love the height of the stock one and the look, but I think a flip up would reduce the wind just enough.

I did and the pictures don't show a side view and the description doesn't specify.

Any chance you can post pics after it's installed?
