What are these?

Postby zvacman » Sat Jul 24, 2010 10:48 am



Has anyone ever seen these before? They are supposed to be for a GL1100. If anyone has seen them and knows the placement on the bike please let me know. They almost look like they are front cailiper covers but I'm not sure.

Thanks, Z

I just checked my chrome queen and don't see those anywhere. My front caliper covers are of a different style. I believe I have seen that style on a different year's model.

I have looked all over my bike for where these might go and I am stumped. The two large bolts on the forks are too close together and probably tolarge in diameter to go throught the mounting brackets. The shape and size is correct to cover the calipers. What would happen if I remove both of the fork bolts on one side?

Thanks in advance, Z

Since you asked , I'll assume they weren't installed .. I have 2 similar on the lowers that were after market deflectors. Then again they may be for the other guys dune buggy luck!!

I don't know if the mystery is solved but I did manage to mount the unknown chrome pieces on Sunday. I'm pretty certain this isn't where they are supposed to go but they look decent so I think I'll leave them on.
