friends engine covers hitting

Postby halcombrick » Sat Mar 14, 2015 8:26 pm



im trying to help a friend, he has an 86 fuel injected 1200, he just ordered a set of used drag specialties engine covers, when he went to put the left side on, it hits the chrome whatever it is that is just under the faux tank and directly vertical of the kickstand, is it maybe a chrome add-on he needs to remove? any help would be great, thanks..rick

The only thing there that I know of is the petcock, but since my computer won't open pictures on this site I can't tell if PO added something else to it. If you put a close up of the item you are refering too someone may be able to tell you. :mrgreen:

Hard to tell - do you have a closer-up picture of the chrome piece?
