    Yeah I don't think you would want to break that piece of glass. I don't know if the MX73 has the same windsheild. I know the rear glass is different.

    I bought one just to measure it and its short from every side, a window from japan would cost me more than $800 between price and shipping so if it does happen to brake I think im going with plexi glass for the time being.
