So, got my new Puig Vision shield installed. I think it looks good, but the installation brackets are pretty &?/%#!. They do the job simply, but quality of mine is bad. They have extruded drilled threads for the attaching screws, but one of mine was stripped and ruined the screw, so had to re-thread it (if it doesn't hold I can put a nut on the end with longer screw). And... using the included spacers means the shield is stressed inward too much for my liking. I made some 8 mm rubber spacers (out of 1/4" rubber fuel hose) with longer screws to attach, and fits fine and may absorb some vibration.
Normal installation should take no more than 15 minutes, if no issues with the brackets. Here is a pic of it installed and inward showing my spacers.

After my first 125 mile ride ride with the Puig shield yesterday, it shakes, rattles and rolls. Too thin, not enough support bracket. I should have got a Dart Marlin, I really liked the one on my Guzzi. Much higher quality.
