Windshield(brackets?)

I just replaced my broken speedo cable. I thought it would be easier to remove the windshield for room. But after I got half off, the other side was rusted together. So I broke the bracket... Is it possible to get just a bracket? Or do I replace the whole thing?

Some brackets may cost hundreds, but my new Plexistar II with brackets was under two hundred bucks. Think the brackets for it are under $40 delivered.

Contact the manufacturer and see if they sell the brackets.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Or someone might be able to recommend a way to fix/replace the busted part.

I will try to take a pic tomorrow. But I believe it is a stock windshield.- and the part I had to break was the grommet/plastic screw that actually goes into the windshield right side. Thanks for yall's help.

i didn't know that the VN750 had a stock windshield... even the KF&S shields are aftermarket.
