Diy 2015 rg vent screens

Made some vent screens for th 2015 rg. Didn't want to spend the money and was thinking diy project. Cant be that hard right. Went to lowes and found some shiny metal by the outdoor grill s. The metal is used to cook on. It very thin. Think I paid $4.50. Made a copy of a friend s screen he ordered. But later on took my time cutting the edges. Here are some pic.

Paint them black.



Why is that piece under the fairing crooked? Are you working on something else?

that's pretty cool but I would go one step further if you haven't already. I would go the auto parts store and by some rubber door trim to run around the outside edges of your screen so it doesn't scratch up the sides of the vent housing. Also, like someone else mentioned they would look good black.

Now all we need is for someone to post a template so all us cheap asses can print it out and make our own. I like the idea of the door trim around it. So would you have to make it a little smaller to accommodate for the size of the trim?

You will have to pull the fairing off. Then remove two Allen that hold the black trim around the lights on. The trim and the outer fairing hold it. 100 mph down the turnpike. no problem.
