RG without engine guard

Has anyone removed their engine guard and fairing support brackets without causing damage to the fairing? And has anyone ordered and installed 14" apes from Hill Country Customs?

You need some sort of lower fairing support weather you replace the factory setup with a "hidden" mount or an internal, it does need to be supported or yes it will cause damage!! But it's a clean clean look with the engine guard removed



As for the bars, I can't help as I've never ordered bars from them, but I think that is where TracyB's are from

It didn't mess up the fairing but the radio skipped like a son of a [email protected]%

Don't know about the gards, but I have 16" Hill Country apes and love them. Had the dealership put them on so they will be covered under the 5 years warrenty.
