At least I think it was you that said about running the chrome strip on the radiator cover. I was bored, so I figured I might as well try it. I think it looks pretty good. Adds a little sumthin' sumthin' to the front. Not much, but enough to notice.

If he got the chrome radiator cover then he would need the chrome stebel.

Hey that's a nice touch. A little added bling. What did you use for the chrome strip?

Just the plain ol' roll of chrome car door stripping that they sell at AutoZone. I had some left over after doing the metal lip on my gas tank.

Interesting mount for the Stebel - I like it! Where did you get that bracket?

It's home made. It's 1/8" aluminum. I knew a guy with some scrap pieces. Luckily he had the machine to bend it too. He just randomly bent the piece to show me how it worked. His random bend was perfect for what I needed. Then I drew the lines where it needed to be cut so that it looked custom and cut it out with my jigsaw. Drilled the holes and then sanded all the edges so that they were smooth and then painted it. For the bolt, I had an extra one from the saddlebags, so I cut it down to size and used it. To mount it to the bike I just added it on to the bolt for my Cobra bars. I'm quite happy how it turned out.

you haven't had any problems with it being so close to the exhaust pipe?

It's been on for a year now, and I haven't had any issues. I guess the air flow keeps it from getting hot. It barely gets warm. There's at least 1/4" between them.
