Default Vtwin adapters fit issues??

I had my speaker adapters installed today and I have a noticeable gap between the windshield and fairing. Anyone using the vtwin spkr adapters please chime in.

The speakers look like they are sitting too high up. They are suppose to sit down and towards the radio. The speaker does not align directly if you are looking at it from the front. It's off towards the inside. I will try to get some pics up tomorrow if I have time.

I'll appreciate that. Here is some other pic's I just can't see where I have room to move the speakers down cause they are already touching the bottom of the fairing.

It appears to me that the left adaptor is not clocked correctly. the slot thats at approx 1 o'clock should be approx. 4 oclock, seen as ridding. I might be wrong its hard to see for sure. That may help some.
FYI the cut outs for the mid bridge (for HW speakers) are not clocked the same on mine, or on the web site. ?? funky.. The left one is about 90* out from the right one.

I did grind the top of the adaptors a bit to get a better fit.

what you have holding the amp in place is not going to last

I just installed a set of these this past weekend. Something doesn't look right with the way you have yours installed. I'm thinking there was a flat ground into the top of the adapters. I had to look at my instructions a few times until I was sure I had them clocked right. I'm thinking the outer top screw goes all the way through. As mentioned, the speakers will be moved to the inside and down when the adapters are clocked correctly. You can see this from the rider side.

I see a couple things that may fix this issue.

1) Looks like the erector set you used to make the brackets is to high, and may be interfering with the tab supports on your fairing. Put your fairing back on,.. and with a flash light shine up and see if its hitting on either side, up high where it seats into the aluminum part of the inner fairing. That's if you can see around that big amp.

2) Remove all that foam off the face of the speaker, so the metal part is seated against the adapter. This will gain a good 1/4" it looks like.

Looking at the second pic from the bottom, what you see is the speaker then the vtwin adapters that looks like two different pieces ( or foam as you called it) that can not be separated (it's one piece)and that's connected to the OEM bracket . Yes, the top of the adapter is touching the top of the fairing. That is why I wanted someone with this adapter to chime in cause they may have similar issues.

Can you post a copy of those instructions please. I don't have mines, I had the local stereo shop install them when I had my amp installed.
