Aluminum honeycomb vent screens for the 15 are done

So I've worked out the pattern for the honeycomb screens and for those that have ordered, they will be shipping tomorrow or Monday depending on the weather and my ability to actually get to the post office.

If any one wants to order some, they will ship within 36 hours of payment. These are $35 per set shipped. Pm me for PayPal info. Thanks!!

Do they come ready to install, do they come with some adhesive to hold vent in place?

I think you said on another post that they come with install instructions.
Can you post those?
Trying to decide if I want to tackle this or not.

Do you make a headlight cover similar to the offered by Trask?

This mod really does a lot for the looks of the '15 RG. Although I'm still trying to get used to the new mug, this really helps. Nice job.

Ok now that I found out you have to remove the front fairing, how much of a pain is it to install?

Not hard at all. Once you remove the outer fairing, there's a headlight trim piece on each side of the headlight that two screws holding it on. Remove that piece, lay your screens over the hole, reattach that trim piece and reinstall outer fairing. Kury has a nice video (it's linked on here somewhere) showing how to install their $75 screens. Major99 is offering a nice deal on them.

Sorry, I've been crazy busy with all this damn snow.

Yes , as others have stated, you do need to remove the outer fairing.

first, you remove the speaker grilles. pry gently from the inside of the fairing. I used a screwdriver with the end wrapped in a rag so I didn't scratch anything.
2 lower outside of the speaker hole is a screw on each side. remove them.
3 bottom rear where there are 2 screws from the inner to the outer fairing, remove just the lower screw on each side.
4 remove the hex bolt that you can see at the back of your turn signal bracket.
5 now, the only thing holding your outer fairing on is the 4 screws for your windshield. a second set of hands may be useful to hold the fairing on while you remove the screws. (I used my beer gut)
6 slide the outer fairing about an inch toward the front of the bike and hold it there.
7 grab the top vent assembly and gently pull toward the front and up, it will pop out pretty easily.
8 now you can unplug your front turn signals and remove the outer fairing.

the vent screens fit in the opening and get sandwiched between the inner and outer fairing and the trim piece that is on each side of the headlight assembly. once you get the screens in, you reverse the process and put it all back together.

The whole process should take about 30-45 minutes with a beer break.
