    Side cover kit looks great, and installation went fairly well. Instructions leave out a few details(specifically where the washers go), but found a YouTube video on installation that answered the missing details. Only issue found was that the top bracket on right-side needed a spacer at the frame as it was too high up causing new cover to rub against existing cover. Left side was perfect. Wish that the kit had more glossy black finish than the current matted finish, as it would match the rest of the frame better.

    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.
    Nice Try.....but Seriously Lacking
    (St. Paul, MN) | January 4th, 2015
    The idea of this product is good but the execution is severely lacking. * Hardware is completely different than stock, requiring different tools if adjustments are needed on the road * Installation requires changing out some of the stock bolts * Instructions are ridiculous to figure out. How about some descriptions and actual explanation on how to install? * The panel color (Black) doesn't match any of the black parts of the K1600. Now you have (2) different shades of black that just looks weird. * Pushing the panels on the rubber grommets requires so much force it moves the pins out of alignment. No matter how tight I torqued the bolts this always occurred. *The molded plastic just looks weird in person.....detracts from look of bike. I ended up returning mine as I didn't feel it was worth the money. More R&D is needed to make this a good product.
    Great Addition

    Fantastic addition to the K1600. Does a great job in hiding that ugly open area. Thanks for the great product!
    Great addition to the bike

    I continue to be impressed with the quality and engineering of Wunderlich products. These covers are actually easier to install than the instructions might lead you to think at first. I had a friend who had installed them who recommended doing a "dry fit" approach, which helped a lot. It made it very clear where each bracket needed to go. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the covers are to take on and off--being held on by simple pressure on the rubber grommets. Highly recommend these as an add-on.
    Good fit but instruction are terrible

    Fit very good look nice. Instruction note that clear has to be mecanicaly incline. I do not understand why you supply allen head screw whem BMW use torque head screw and not sure they are stainles steel like the original for the price i would expect it to be.

    I have a problem with the product. One of the brackets don\'t seem to be the right one for the bike. Also some of the skrews don\'t seem to be the right skrews for the bike.The instructions are very hard to follow also.I\'ll have to contact Wunderlich to see if I can get replacement parts.I hope my next review can be better than this one.
    A very nice product!

    Thank you for inviting a review of the Wunderlich side cover set. First let me say; in my opinion these covers greatly enhance the appearance of the K1600 GT/L! As several others reviewers have said the installation instructions provided with the cover set are somewhat vague. Fortunately if you are mechanically inclined the installation is fairly straight forward. I opted to drill the left side cover to accommodate a Powerlet (BMW style) electrical connector. I use this connector to power to my heated riding gear and when not riding plug in a battery tender. If you opt to do something similar a word of caution, the side covers (at least the left side cover) is quite brittle or possibly has some internal stress remaining from the forming process. In any case the first cover I drilled cracked during the drilling process. The plastic cracked even though the material was backed up with a wooden block during the drilling process. The good news is after ordering a second set of covers (yep the pocketbook suffered but I liked them that much) the drilling process went off without a hitch. I�m having the covers and much of the other factory black plastic painted Metallic Mineral Silver to match the bike, but even unpainted the Wunderlich covers definitely enhance the appearance of the K1600.
