Just recently bought a powerbronze screen but still waiting on my new front nose cone arriving. Was looking at the rubber bits that that i go via pro bolt and notice they are very different from the old ones and was wondering if anyone knew how to fit them properly? I know Benji has used probolt before, maybe a bit of advice?

As you can see on the left is the original which has some groove in it so that it can grip onto the screen but the probolt one doesn't have that.

Should jut fit exactly the same... Can't see that causing any issues, if anything just looks easier to fit :)

Can't you see though that on the original, the bottom lip of the groove is there to stop the screen falling down, but because there is no bottom lip on the pro bolt rubbers then they cannot fit in the same way as the originals?

But there will be a screw going through it, that would stop it from falling out would it not?

Edit: Hmmm, see your point I think...

No more help required :)

Have figured it out on my own, such a simple thing can't see why i never noticed before. :confused:

What happens is that when you tighten up the bolt, the rubber squashes and actually creates the bottom lip on its own, quite smart really.

It wouldn't be like pro bolt to make something that isn't completely genius :p

those grooves do hold the screen in place, yes. have you fitted it yet? i don't see how the probolt fittings would work. i also don't see how they'd make any difference if they did fit, those stock grommets are perfectly fine to use.

It took me a while to get my head around it Sam
As I see it, the bolts fit into the probolt grommets and crush the unthreaded centre section upwards as you tighten to create a lip just below the screen.
Genius, really! It's probably what the stock ones look like before any screen is actually fitted...

You must have missed my post above, I eventually figured it out.

Very smart indeed but i'm assuming it's the same for the stock ones? Nobody will really know unless the get genuine ones from Yamaha.
