Powerbronze Tall Windscreen

Just received and installed the last remaining item (or so I thought) for my 310GS, the much-needed taller windscreen. I ordered the Powerbronze version once learning that it was the one to also be sold by Rally Raid. I like it though one casualty is that I was unable to make it work with the Barkbuster single side hand guards that I had previously installed. Between minor adjustments to the lever positions and the guard itself I was able to make the clutch side just touch... but I was unable to get anything close to that on the brake side. I even slightly reshaped the BB bar to close the gap between it and the brake fluid container but it still made contact the screen way too early and would risk breaking the screen, or worse restricting turning ability under stress. I decided to remove them and find an alternative but in a final fitting run tried to make a minor adjustment on the brake side and snapped the connector bracket! Ugh... in any case if anyone is interested in these hand guards with a broke bracket (maybe it is available separately?) let me know as they're taking up space for me. I verified with Powerbronze that their guards allow for full clearance by design and have ordered a set of them.

P.S. I should note that I have the Wunderlich bar risers installed which I assume would result in exaggerating this issue.

The screen sold by Powerbronze is different to our Rally Raid Products screen in the fact that our RR screen is specifically designed to work with Barkbusters on both OEM and our Fat Bar conversion.
We developed our screen and Powerbronze make it exclusively for us to sell, not for themselves, we tried their version and soon realised it didn't work with BB guards.
If you compare the pictures, our screen has "bulges" lower down to clear the BB handguards, the Powerbronze has them at the upper edge,

Thanks for the clarification on that. That was ignorance on my part. When I saw that Powerbronze was making the RR shield I started looking online and Powerbronze showed one available but RR did not yet have it available. So I ordered from PB. As it turned out, by the time it shipped I think the RR may have been available... oh well. In any case a valuable clarification for others considering! Tks.
