Fork Cover hitting inner fairing RF speaker

just installed RF's in the inner fairing. The bolt that holds the plastic fork cover on the right side hits the speaker grill when I turn from far left to straight. Anybody else have this happen after installing RF T165's in the inner fairing?

I am going to start tinkering around trying to move the fairing to the right or find slimmer speaker grills or something. Just figured I would see if anybody else had run across it and what worked for you?

I had the same problem with the speaker grills on the Hertz speakers. I changed the bolts to button head bolts. I did t have the issue with the cover.

+1 on swapping out the stick bolts to button heads. That and you have a small amount of adjustability with the fairing.

I adjusted my fairing out a little by moving the fairing/enginge guard supports over very slightly.

I used the 'Prime' series R/F grills.
They are very thin.
Plus I mounted the 'Whole' speaker inside the fairing.
I'm going over tonite where the bike is and I'll get some pics for ya.
All these other comments will work tho.

+4 I squeezed the entire speaker in the fairing. Moved the supports out a little. Switched to chrome Allen button heads and shaved down the supplied speaker grill with a utility knife. Looks and fit great. I shaved off that entire 1/4" edge

Re: Fork Cover hitting inner fairing RF speaker

I am going to try the smaller headed bolt and moving the fairing out a little with the support bracket. I would move speaker inside fairing, but I cut the whole too far back, and speaker is tight fit already, giggidy. If those don't work, the grills will be shaved or replaced. Wish I could find a wire mesh grill like that guy on here makes for the factor location speakers. That would be cool.

Added note, a 5" whole saw makes the perfect diameter hole for the RF's. Inner fairing comes off easy...

If you have stock lower fairing support just loosen up the 2 hex head bolts a little that are around the engine guard/ crash bar you can get a lot of clearance by just pulling them out a bit and retightening.

Edit k i see you already said you would try that. probably wont need the bolts if you move the support first. yours is a lot closer than mine was though. Best of Luck

4 nuts is all. Have to pull 2 for amp bracket anyway. Label wiring connections as you pull them apart. Hole saw and done.
