    Windscreen lock up

    Is there a way to keep the windscreen up with the key off? 
    I want to wash it like that,
    and are the stock speakers waterproof?
    Im not going to use a pressure washer on it. Splash maybe.

    The only way to keep the Screen up with the Ignition Off
    would be to disconnect the Main Battery while the Screen is up,
    but I have no idea what effect that might have on the electronics
    "remembering" the Upper amd Lower limit points.

    Sorry I have no idea about the water resistance of the Speakers.

    Although the Owners Handbook makes NO mention of keeping water
    away from the Speakers when cleaning, and it being reasonable
    to assume they have some degree of protection from rain
    I wouldn't recommend directing a hose towards them.

    Cheers  :821:

    The answer to the windscreen issue is no! To be honest though it only takes a couple of minutes at the end to wash both sides so don't really see it as an issue.

    I wash everything I can reach, then turn on the key and raise the wind screen to get the parts I can't otherwise reach.

    I have removed the main fuse to keep the screen in the "up" position whilst I did some work on my sat nav wiring. When the fuse was replaced a day or so later I had no problems. Maybe I was just lucky. As others have said, for washing, I wouldn't bother

    They are marine speakers so they can put up with a lot of water. On the other hand, I wouldn't try to drown them.

    Indeed, rvbobby, they are marine.
    only thing that if they are injected with water under pressure, what can happen if the membrane of the speakers is broken.

    There are two fuse boxes behind the left hand side panel. Lift the seat; there are 2 fixings holding the panel on, and I think 1 grommet. In the forward fuse box, in the number 6 position, is a 15 amp fuse labeled "Windscreen." Turn the key on, put the windscreen where you want it, pull the 15 amp fuse, turn the key off. It doesn't take that long. Or you can remove 6 fixings (4 exposed, remaining 2 under the cover), and just take the windscreen off. Probably about the same amount of time. I'll do it if I'm going to treat the plastic fairing with "back to black," or some other detail work.
