RE: New (to you) RT

No, the '05 has aluminum arms too.  They would break where the arm meets the
top barrel mount.  They may have beefed them up.  It took about 6 months of
riding season for my first one to break on a trip back from Vermont.   The
second one on the other side broke in the same place about 2 months later.

I really hope they fixed this.  The aftermarket ones have been holding all
this year.  I'd wait until one breaks before buying these.  Change to stock
shield if you want one replaced.  Some dealers won't do it if you have an
aftermarket windscreen on the bike.

They have, my '07 has aluminum arms where the older version I believe are
Swapped the stock screen for a Ztechnik Vstream within a week of buying the
bike and I've had no problem with the brackets or any other part of the
mechanism. That includes regularly riding well over posted highway speed
limits with the screen raised...
