The mud guard looks great on my 2015GS:

Good place to put a sticker too! It seems to fill the gap between the fender and the license plate very well.

I installed a prototype centerstand skid plate from Kildala and have to say, very nice!





Better photos when I can, but very nice as always!

Does the dash plate fit on a 2010 GSA? Thinking about adding a bunch of switches ,diodes and knobs. Looks like a good place to put them.

I just bought the same Mud Guard and a few other things. For some reason I thought the Mud guard should go on with the lip tilted outward, now I'm not sure??

Question

Thanks.
If it was installed correctly, it might be an issue for the helmets hanging from the locks.

Not at all, at least for mine. The lip actually helps the helmets not touch the mud guard on the FD.

I think we are saying the same thing.
It works better for you that way.

I installed the Mud guard today.
It did not fit right, the one side was much closer to the crossover bar than the other side.
After looking things over, I saw the left side of the factory license plate mount was not seated against it's mount, it turned out that the plastic insert that the retaining screw goes though was not all the way in, so even though it was tight, it was not pulled against the bike. Easy fix.
Great product and great seller.
I found some very cool mounting bolts.[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

I installed the Kildala Radiator Guards on my bike yesterday. They fit well and are very sturdy, but, they must have been designed off a 2013 because a slight trimming of the wind deflector on the bike was needed to allow it to fit. BMW changed it mid 2014 I believe. Easy trim, and they fit nice and sturdy. They are heavy duty, and may even strengthen the support in a fall.

Remove the side panel.



Remove the wide deflector. One screw the slide down out of the slots on top.


Make sure the surface is clean. The guard has rubber isolators, but they could damage the surface if debris is trapped in there during install.


Here you can see what needs to be trimmed. You could trim the deflector, but that might weaken it. Maybe Rick will redesign that part, but it is no big deal to trim the plastic off.



Trimmed and fits great!



Now the other side. Remove the side panel. Note the tab over the lip of the radiator. That has to be trimmed. It doesn't serve much of a purpose, so I do not mind trimming it.



Remove the screw


These tabs fit into the top of the radiator mount.



How to trim the wind deflector.




Fully installed. Looks great!


Overall they look pretty good!
