    Side Cover Set, Silver


    It seems that the airy look of the RT's tail end was designed to underscore the bike's lightness. The disadvantage however is that rider's and passenger's legs and feet are left unprotected from the space between the side covers and the footrest carriers. Unhindered, water sprays over the boots and up to the thighs, resulting in the rider and passenger getting soaked. Additionally, water and dirt is spread over the side covers, panniers and foot rest carriers.

    These easy to install covers complete the tail section and offer an impressive improvement in wet weather protection. Additionally, these covers add a visual enhancement by virtue of their lovingly crafted shape and close the gap to the rear wheel, completing the RT design.

    The covers are made of formed silver ABS plastic with a robust clear coat. They are nearly indestructible and very resistant against scratching. Supplied with everything needed for an easy installation.

    Not compatible with the Wunderlich rear protections bars without extensive modification.

    Also available in black. Please see the link under the Related Products tab:

    The fit is well and they look good on my bike, but I had a problem installing the spacers between the rear fairing. I left them off, but the pieces still looks great. I think if I put M6 nuts on the bolts, the spacers will fasten securely. Great engineering design!

    Goodbye Gaping Slot
    Great Product! Simple Installation! I purchased this item for aesthetics only. I'd prefer a third mounting screw, snap or clamp to secure the item and eliminate minor play at lower right rear corner of the part when installed. 4 stars - Could use a third point of security to eliminate flexability for a perfect fit.

    Fragile Part
    I have a 2009 Oil Head RT with this part. During a recent service at Bobs BMW the tech noted that these parts were falling off because the Mounting Tabs had cracked on one side and had broken off on the other side. The bottom line is that these look nice but are too flimsy to handle the service / vibration of the RT twin engine.

    Nicely designed addition
    The pieces were very nicely designed and look original on the bike. Easy install and functional.

    Expensive but functional
    These side covers complete the body lines as they should have been from the factory. The foam tape is useless, and installation is a little challenging, but they look good.

    Great item
    This item looks great on the bike and should keep the passenger feet dry in wet weather

    Side Cover Set
    Fairly easy to install and looks very good on the bike. I threw the foam tape away because I felt the flanges would take care of water and it didn't really seem to do anything. Instructions are good, I didn't remove the peg support on the right side because it had the rear brake linkage attached. the side cover slid right in. The replacement screw was difficult to line up.

    Improves Looks and Functional
    Rather easy to install - less than 30 min, looks great and not that it rains much in Arizona but it will block debris from coming through the wheel well to the back riders legs.

    Finishes off the bike
    Very easy to fit.Took me all of 1/2 hour total and they look great should have been a factory fit finishes the bike off very well.Looking at them on the bike you would swear they were put on when they put the bike together.

    Performs as described
    Too bad BMW didn't include them as part of the bodywork. The side covers do a good job of keeping unwanted water from splashing onto the passenger pegs. The foam tape provided to seal the seams seemed to be a fix rather than a deliberate part of the design. They are very expensive pieces of plastic, but they do a great job of keeping the water under the fender and they look good.

    Side cover does the job!
    Easy to install, looks good and finishes the side of the bike nicely. Loosen all the bolts shown/take off piece if you need to and it goes exceptionally well. Nice piece. Again, if instructions are a little linguistically blurry to us in English, please use better photos!
