Once installed these side covers look good and, to my eye, look stock. That is to say they look as if they belong there - and not something superfluous. But the majority of reviewers are correct: the installation instructions supplied by Wunderlich are extremely cryptic. Definitely take your laptop into the garage with you and read the instructions other reviewers have been generous enough to post in this forum. It will make your job easier if not easy. Very tight working quarters especially on the right side. "Low profile" or thing wrench heads a big plus. I had to use masking tape to help hold one or two nuts in place on the open end wrench while threading bolts. Also, despite my best efforts, I've failed at figuring out how I ended up with two small nut (not nylon stop nuts) leftover after the installation. Everything seems right and tight a couple of hundred miles later - but - it still mystifies me. Took me three hours start to finish and more that a few curse words along the way. I had the same experience as some others who tightened down the hardware as much as seemed prudent, and then still has the the mounting posts want to pivot back away from me when trying to push the rubber bushings over the round metal tops of the posts. A small dab of vaseline on the post and grommet helped this process eventually. I also had to try to use a thin (bent, old) screwdriver to insert behind the mounting post to hold it in position while trying to get that bushing popped onto the mounting stud. With patience you'll get it - but probably not the first time. Bottom line is side covers look good when finally installed but it is not a breeze to accomplish and you'll benefit from reading the instructions contained in these reviews. Good luck!

Very poor instructions. Have not installed yet. Will wait until bike is down for the winter.

As everyone has said.. the instructions are horrible. So I wrote some instructions to go with the pictures they send you. I didn't give it 5 stars because they tend not to hold in place real well. One of the three seem to want to always pop out. But they do look good. Now for the instructions: You need: 13mm OPEN END wrench Two 10mm wrenches (or one socket and one box) Several misc. sizes of torques wrenches (or course the OEM�s you remove will be a different size than the ones that come with the covers) 1) Look at picture B. Copy it exactly by putting the parts together as shown. DO NOT SKIP DOING THIS! Several parts are only slightly different. a. NOTE: The shortest bolt goes on the right hand side. The other two go on the left. The longest bolt goes with part VI. b. Every nut has a washer c. Each bolt has a washer d. Part I uses the NON safety locking nut. i. I could NOT get the washer on the bolt. There is almost no room to work on the right side bottom holder. 2) Insert the rubber grommet things. The fatter side goes on the inside. Just squish them in. 3) Take off the seat, saddle bags & side cover thing on both sides (picture F1 & P) 4) Tighten all the holders to their parts. Make sure you have them pointing in the correct direction. Look at the picture B 5) Pic G1 & G2 (right side). You will remove this bolt and replace with the supplied bolt & washer. Run the bolt in gently until it just starts to poke out the other side. Place the part I over the bolt, screw it in a little until it just starts to poke out of the part. Next you are supposed to do the same with the washer. I couldn�t get it on there, good luck. Then comes the nut, WITHOUT THE SELF LOCKING. You can continue to tighten the bolt so it catches the nut. Spin the nut on as far as you can. Then finish tightening the bolt. Then mostly tighten the nut with your open end wrench. (Now you see why it has to be open ended). DO NOT TIGHTEN ALL THE WAY. You will need to move them around to get them lines up with the holes. 6) Look at pics H1 & H2. Feel around for the bolt. You will reuse the OEM bolt here. Pull it out and reinstall with part II. Again do not tighten all the way. 7) Pictures I1 & I2 are a bit confusing because now they are looking in from the left side of the bike. Look for the brake fluid reservoir. You need to remove the bolt that�s holding it in place. Here again you will reuse the OEM bolt. Look at part III. Notice the slit. When you have it lined up right the bracket from the brake fluid reservoir slides into the slit. This one cannot move around so go ahead and tighten it down 8) Now take the side place and place it over the holder in step 7. And move the other two holders around until they line up. Carefully remove the plate without moving the holders and tighten them done. Right side is done. 9) Lest side is easier! K1 & K2 are the same as step 5 except you have more room to work with and you can use the locking nut. 10) L1 & L2 is similar to step 6 above. The holder will extend forward. 11) M1 & M2� well the pics tell the story here. You will use the longest of the supplied bolts. Again do not tighten yet 12) Now take the side plate and move the holders around until you can get all three in. This is a bit tricky!!! It will work. But the top left one will look like it doesn�t want to go all the way in. But it seems to hold it just fine. 13) Reinstall all the stuff� take a picture for your friends to marvel at� and go for a ride.
