Unabiker Radiator Guards
you purchased your new Unabiker Radiator Guards and
are excited to get them installed. Take just a few
minutes to read this How-To install article before
you get started. This "How-To" written by
CRF's Only member "Old Fat Guy" or otherwise
known as OFG.
1. Remove radiator shrouds.
2. Remove radiator to frame bolts.
Remove stock plastic deflector, take needle nose and
squeeze the tangs together, pull deflector off.
4. Remove wire holder from rubber radiator grommet,
reinsert in Unabiker guard from the backside.
Unabiker guard between radiator and frame, start top
and bottom bolts, make sure locator tabs on wire holder
are in position on the frame.
Take screwdriver or needle nose and remove stock shroud
Tighten both radiator to frame bolts.
8. Remove bolt from electrical bracket, you will now
remount bracket on the inside of frame, bolt will
come through from the backside (tiny fingers would
Take needle nose and bend locator tab up and back
over the frame.
10. Now, locator tab is bent over the frame, with
the bolt tight, it will stick out just a little. I
decided to use a dremel to grind the bolt down flush
with the frame, I wanted the Unabiker rear bracket
to lay perfectly flat on the frame.
Insert the provided bolts in the top, second, and
bottom holes, leave the third hole empty. (I chose
not to use the washers supplied with the kit). You
may have to wiggle or use an awl to get good alignment
on the holes.(each bike will be a little different)
Put the supplied lock nuts on, leave them all loose
until you get all three started, then tighten up.
Now you are ready to replace the shroud. I started
all the shroud bolts but the bottom, I did it last.
You may have to push the radiator rearward a little
with your hand to get the middle shroud-brace bolt
started. The bottom is a little difficult but it will
go, and it will tighten up.
12. However, I did not like the way it stresses the
bottom of the shroud, So I went to the hardware store
and bought a couple ¼ nylon spacers.
I put the spacer between the Unabiker and the shroud,
and used the longer allen bolt and nut provided.
14. Tighten all shroud bolts, stand back and admire
the new protection! Not to mention the Bling factor!!.
Now do the other side,(much easier).
Unabikers come packaged in plastic wrap protecting
all pieces from scratching. A complete bolt kit is
included, with locknuts. The instructions are pretty
good, they do not mention a couple minor things, but
are generally pretty good.
