    Hi, Iíve just picked up a 2018 950 and was thinking about adding this same protection to mine. Any chance you could upload some photos once installed, particularly the engine guard. Lots of the photos on-line are close-up so I canít see how it looks overall on the bike. Thanks.

    No problem, but give me some time, please.
    Next week my bike gets the 1000km service and after that i'll install the engine guard.

    Hi all,

    I have just purchased the same.

    Fitting the radiator and oil guards were no problem - very easy.

    I started to fit the engine guard tonight and have come across a question that I need answering - the Evotech instructions steps 6 - 14 show to remove three screws/studs and replace with the Evotech standoff studs but the three that you take out have 'o' rings on them, do you discard these or re-use?

    Hopefully someone here can clarify?

    I personally think you should re-use to help prevent oil leakage?

    I was planning on re-using the 'o' rings, i suppose they serve a purpose.
    But you're right, they're not mentioned in the instructions.

    Should much oil come out when you remove them?

    I removed the bottom one and quickly put it back in again.

    I installed all 3 myself on my V2S ...
    had this photo to hand ... probably too close ?

    Anyway - definitely worth doing.
