Do I need different brackets?
I know fairing is same for the cross bikes but didn't really pay attention to the windshield until now.
I'm really a bit upset with myself when I measured this I used a piece of tape stuck where it looked good. I didn't ride far enough to really settle into the more relaxed position. D'oh.
No, you don't need the brackets that come stock with the Tour. Those brackets were only added to that model to support the barn-door windshield that came with it. If you remove the brackets, your fairing is the same as the Cross Country, and you can mount any of the dozens of windshields for that model, directly to the built-in metal strips on the fairing (the ones that the extra XCT brackets attached to).
When I ordered my (now sold) XCT, I had the dealer install -- as part of the uncrating process -- a Klockwerks Flare, instead of the stocker (because I knew the stock was too tall, and I'm a look-over rider, not a look-through rider). When I picked up the bike, he presented me with the brackets and the stock windshield, and all the bolts and washers, etc. Put them in the car, and my wife drove home and I rode the bike home.
I sold the stocker and brackets, and a year later sold the Flare and installed a Madstad system. The Flare was nice, and worked well for me, but it only works well in a limited height/torso range: too short, and you look through the curved lip, and too tall and you get buffeting. And I wanted to try something different, anyway. The Madstad works well, is available in assorted sizes, but a lot of folks think it's fugly. So remove the stock brackets, and you can try all sorts of windshields, including, I assume, different 7Juroc sizes. Try three or four, and you're still spending way less money than, say, a new exhaust system. Good luck.
