Default Radiator cover install

I received my radiator cover for Christmas and figured I'd install it pretty quick.

-----------------------------------------------------------
My stock cover.



-----------------------------------------------------------
The way the cover came in the mail.



-----------------------------------------------------------
Bottom mounting holes.



-----------------------------------------------------------
Top mounting holes.



-----------------------------------------------------------
Place the cover over the stock cover. Drill out the plastic.



-----------------------------------------------------------
The instructions and mounting bolts. I ended up not using the stock bolts. I used acorn nuts to give it a different look.



-----------------------------------------------------------
Cover bolted to stock cover.



-----------------------------------------------------------
Close up of the acorn nuts.



-----------------------------------------------------------
Finally mounted.





Safe riding guys.

It looks like it is plasma cut stainless steel.

Be careful cleaning the edges as it will slice you nicely!

You may want to clean up the edges a bit with a Dremel or even one of those sponge sanding blocks just to get the burrs off. Seal it with a coat of polish.

I've been wanting one for the Valk.

Yours looks good!

Yeah it just bolts over the top. You have to drill holes in the stock cover to mount it.

I'm pretty happy with the looks of this. I think it will look a lot better when I get my cobra highway bar installed
