Front fairing frame for 2009 Versys

Hi everyone, new here and while I posted in the into section I also have a question that I would like help with, if possible.

I just bought/traded a 2009 Versys in pretty good condition. However the front fairing/headlamp assembly points a bit to the left - maybe one inch off at the headlight. This makes the two plastic pieces on the side a little crooked and obviously the instruments are also a little off to the left. No data on what happened but I am thinking to just handle it by undoing the nuts/bolts that keep the frame of the fairing in place, it seems there are two in the front where the head of the frame is and then there is one on the right by some plastic tank. I assume that is there to keep it straight.

I was wondering if there is any adjustment to this at all, meaning if it can move to the left or right or if I have to bend something... it is not a lot but it will require different tools if something like that is needed.

Any insight to this would be helpful and greatly appreciated.

I try to know all there is to know about such a job so I know what to expect and I can prepare for it...

My bike was hit back in 2011. Didn't notice at first that the windscreen dipped a little to the left. (the windscreen brackets had to be replaced since they broke in the crash) So i got one of these off of ebay and it did the trick....09 2009 KAWASAKI LE650 KLE 650 VERSYS FAIRING STAY, FRAME, BRACKET #Y17 | eBay

I bought a bracket like the one Joe gave a link to, to replace mine (on my '08) on which I had to drill out one of those screws that hold the fairing sides ON. It's ONE of the two screws just left of the "BIG RED" sticker on the 'shield.



IF I get busy and change-out that bracket when I get back to AZ, AND you want it knowing about the drilled-out hole, you can have it for whatever it costs to mail.

Thank you very much for the link. And thank you Ed for the offer on your bracket. The pics give me a better idea of what this is and maybe I can handle it without replacing it. I will have to try in the next few days and see if I can do it. I will post back the result...
