    My Scrooge tells me that R&G grills for 141 from ebay are very expensive ))

    The mesh was bought for 14
    ( Aluminium Renngitter Racinggitter Tuning alu Gitter 33 x 100 cm  div. Farben)

    and here is the result:
    No nuts&bolts. Only scissors and 8 cable ties ;))
    I hope it works!

     Looks good to my old eyes. It's cheap to replace if it you ever need to.  :062: :028:

    Looks great!  Can you provide basic instructions of how you did it?  mounting points etc?

    I hope that tomorrow I will do some works and can make the photos.
    P.S.
    You made the nice video about the tank bag.

    Sorry, no more photos at the moment.
    But long story shortly:
    We have 1 piece of the alu black mesh 100x33 cm.
    1. Remove right fairing and bottom plastic "triangle" frame (of exhaust pipes area).
    Note: For the easiest access left fairing could be removed too.
    2. Push the mesh horizontally  along the radiator to the coolant tank side, when stop (contact, hits to the tank as I remember) cut the mesh vertically ;) from the right side with ca. 50 mm extra.
    3. Fold the right and bottom sides. On the right side cut the small slot for the holder.
    4. Fix four cable ties on top ( for exp. to the brake pipes etc.) and two on bottom side (for exp. to the radiator holders).
    5. Put the last piece of the mesh on the exchaust pipes "triangle"  plastic frame.
    6. Top side of the mesh should be inline with top of the frame (I mean level, flush).
    7. Fix top side with two cable ties to the frame.
     8. Cut the left and right sides of the mesh, but left two "small wings"  from the bottom side and fold them. You will see the places for them.
    9. As you assemble the fairings, they will press the edges of the mesh.
    10. Fix two "triangle frame" bolts through the mesh.
    Note. If you can, on these holes put the washers (for exp. fix it with glue) between mesh and wall of the frame. In this case bolts don't tear (stretch) the mesh to much.

    That's all!
    Sorry for many letters :))

    Alex, I'm pretty sure not a single stone is going to be laid or anything like that.
    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.
