Hello all! So, in the process of removing the headlight assembly from my Windjammer, I fumbled the screw at the bottom of the trim ring that holds it in. Of course, it's nowhere to be found and nothing I have on hand seems to fit. Might anyone know the screw size and threading for that little guy? Thanks and have a great day!

did you try metric sizes, since most of the head light came from the bike it is possible it is metric

You need a thin 7/16 open end wrench to hold the thin nut that locks the adjustment knob to the shaft. Once yoy remove the knob you can remove the two bolts that allow the shell to pivot up and down as the adjustment knob is turned. The entire shell is held by just those two bolts and the adjustment shaft. Looking at the front of the fairing the left bolt is used to adjust the headlight left or right. You've got to check the beam pattern with the headlight in the shell but remove it to loosen that bolt and move the shell. Then put the headlight back in and check it again.
