Bought some of these to fit to my Sprint (see “Oops… post here)
On the 955 Sprint, the engine mounting bolts align perfectly with the cut-out in the fairing, so no cutting required and no fancy expensive ironwork behind the fragile plastic bits!
The fitting has taken a lot longer than I thought; there was no way that I could undo the two engine mounting bolts to fit the crash protectors. The obvious answer was to ask my dealer to do it whilst the bike was being serviced. With the fairings off and an experienced tech, it was the work of a few minutes.
Now I feel that I have finally laid my little driveway “incident” to rest.
