Radiator Grill and Down pipe guard
« on: July 24, 2013, 06:55:47 pm »
Fitted the radiator grill and Down pipe guard last weekend.

R&G instructions are OK but you need to use your own understanding.

Radiator Grill: comes with 2 small strips of neoprene that you cut into small strips place around the Grill to stop any vibration. There is only one bolt  no problem. Cable tie the Left hand side fiddly but no problem. Right hand side  really fiddly. put the tie thru the Grill then make it into a loop that way you can then pass the tie loop over the radiator mount. then just tighten it up as normal. IT is too fiddly to try and feed a tie wrap thru the grill and then feed it round the radiator mount. Pus the grill bracket isnt in line with the Radiator mount. Be ready to stop from aching fingers and count to 10 :745:

Down pipe guard: the 2 plastic push clips under the fairing have a screw in (plastic) this to my dismay rounded one of the screws. Managed to get it out. Used a small metal screw when reassembly.
Once the 2 push plugs are removed carefully remove the black trim.
After different attempts I found fit the Back push plug back in the fairing. loosely screw in the screw just enough to spread the plug.
Fit the guard bracket rear hole over the plug. Now the tricky part. Place one of the bolts thru the black trim and through the guard bracket then line up with the bolt hole and loosley insert the bolt. Do the same on the other side. Remember to fit the black trim over the plastic pin on the trim.
Insert the 2nd Plug in the fairing trim. Tighten up the plug screws Dont over tighten. Then tighten the 2 trim bolts.

I will send pictures in my next post.  Hope this has helped. Think it was worth the hassle but to begin had my doubts.

It sounds like the sort of work you should do on a cool day.

Yes, I need to get round to doing it before I go away.

I might see if the dealer will fit it for me when they sort out the fork seal as they are working in that area.
