Hello,

This is my first post, I'm based in Dublin and  I have ordered a manual CT in silver and should be picking it up next week...Im very excited and cannot wait!
In the mean time I am looking at getting a few accessories. I have the Pyramid hugger & fender extender and the R&G radiator guard. I also would like to get the SW Motech engine guard but it appears that it only fits models WITHOUT the Honda original main stand (http://www.bs-motoparts.com/Engine_guard/Engine_guard_SW-Motech_Honda_Crosstourer_12-13_i3975_10028.htm). This dosent really make sense to me. Why would the original main stand prevent the SW-Motech engine guard from being fitted? I will be getting the Honda main stand with my CT. Has anyone fitted the SW-Motech engine guard on a CT with a Honda main stand? Thanks

Padraic

Moli - Thanx for that.  My engine guard in my garage waiting for fitment. :152:
Was going to do it today, but got waylaid, fitting SW-Motech Foot Rests and SW-Motech BarkBuster Hand Guards. :086:
Hopefully get out for a ride tomorrow as weather is forecast - NO RAIN !!!  :046:


Guard will have to wait.

Keep it on the Black Stuff or Dirt - BUT - Rubber Side Down.  Else it hurts!

I'm with Moli. My setup are just the same. The only thing is, when you were to fit the bash plate, it easier to install it on a side stand. The rear of the bash plate will sit exactly on top of the double stand upper holding bar (I call it that, my vocab is not that good). But once it fit, it doesn't get in the way.

...am still waiting for SWMotech crash bar thou..  :110:

Matchip - Thanx for that also.


I take it then :  If you try to fit the bash plate with the bike on the centre stand - Bit of a Problem.


Fit it when the bike is on the side stand - No problem, and when bike replaced onto centre stand, the bash plate does not get in the way ?????   :046:

Here's what I mean...
There's definitely a contact between those two accessories, but it's workable.

You're welcome SPW999!

Welcome pgc, was speaking to a buddy on Friday and he was in the bike shop Friday morning running his hand over a new silver CT and dreaming of owning it... and I thought I might know who the owner is :028:
