    I think 5mm are the bolts that come with the original screen but the touring screen comes with 6mm bolts.

    5mm is the stock size. some of the aftermarket shields use a 6mm bolt dale

    I purchased a set, and they are outstanding. When I fitted them in place, it occured to me that this is what the Honda engieers should have done in the first place!
    I wouln't consider using anything else.

    If I ever offer the windshield I did for myself for SALE, I'll include this as part of the kit.
    hmmm...let's total this up now:
    sheet of lexan, $25,
    Dale's plates $25,
    rubber mount washers, $5,
    shipping (???), $25...
    we're up to $80 with NO PROFIT margin...
    calculations like that make you appreciate what windshield makers charge. They don't make much on those.

    Ken, I wouldn't want to say "yes" to that without trying it first, but it makes sense to me that you could because the windshield is now way more secur than it was before. If you try it, please post your results as others may have the same question.
