Instructions clearly show the top hat spaces and states "the removed parts (A) are necessary for this accessory! Think you may have been given duff info!

I think we are at cross purposes   :002:  what I  was saying is confirmed by the PDF.

The supports for the screen are probably the same but the mounting holes in the 2017 screen are larger than those on pre 2017 bikes which I'm led to believe dont have the damper and top hat spacer installation which requires larger mounting holes

I found this out whilst trying to fit a 2016 Puig screen to my 2017 bike,  :008:

I didn't know if I hadn't explained myself properly    :028:   

Seems like quite a few aftermarket screen manufacturers aren't aware of the change (as they are still marketing products as Vesys 2015 - 2017 fitment)  which is not surprising as some dealers don't know either  :008:

Thank you all for your advices. There is no doubt that you are right.
TYKE you explained very well. I did not understand the problem.
The solution should be simply to buy the collars and dampers highlighted in the attached pdf, which luckily are sold separately.
TYKE, can you confirm, please?

I've asked my dealer: the support is the same for 2015 and 2017 and new bolts and nuts for the 4 holes are in the package.
So I've ordered it. Will report if I meet problems.

Did you receive your new screen yet?  I am waiting to see if it can be made to fit a 2015/2016 bike.

Thanks.

It should arrive next week. As soon as it arrives, I'll report. Fingers crossed.

Just arrived and mounted without any problem using the collars and dampers (€ 10 circa) highlighted in the pdf attached to my previous post, purchased separately.
It's much bigger than oem. The shape is similar to that of Bmw GS.
Next week I will test it in a long ride and report my opinion.

Great! I'm really curious of your results, since I'm pondering between this screen and the Puig. Kind of feel for the Kawa though!

How tall are you?
