GSA Radiator Guards

Went on a group road ride today with about 20 other riders. One of the BMW riders had to pull over to the side of the road and wait for a wrecker after a rock flew through his radiator on a pristine 2-lane blacktop. I guess it can happen anywhere.

It is the Rallie X that comes with those guards, I already bought some to fit to my Exclusive model when it arrives.
I had confirmation from BMW that in the late models the guards fit straight on.

Part Numbers:
Radiator guards, left and right. 46 63 8 556 647 + 46 63 8 556 648

This is great! Can they be moded to make them work on the 2018 GSA? Or did I miss that somewhere.

Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful) is the motto of the Corps. That Marines have lived up to this motto is proved by the fact that there has never been a mutiny, or even the thought of one, among U.S. Marines.

The "All Cuts" photo shows the location of all of the required cuts from the right side guard compared to the uncut left side guard and the "Tab Cuts" photo shows the right side shroud and guard (seen from the back) mated together after the inside border tabs were trimmed (see arrows).

Looks good. I wish you would have zoomed in on that sticker. Also how did you attach the gutter guards to the radiator?
