Noticed that no one had posted pix of the front reservoir guards after mounting, so:

PM me with your address if your interested.
Thanks,

This fits great, Rick used my bike for the template. It uses strong rubber coated pipe clamps for the fitting with nylon lock nuts and bolts. Since installed I have been to death valley and back up the coast on some seriously bad roads and some dirt trails and it is going strong. Nice to hear the ting of flying rocks hit the plate instead of the bike parts!

Photos from Turkey

Dear Rick,

Last week I received the TPS and brake res. cover, and fat foot from my cousin in the US, so he sent me those to Turkey with a friend. I've installed them this weekend on my '06 GSA, very simple installation, great stuff. You can see the pics..

The only thing would be for the rear brake res. cover, which touches my seat (I circled with blue). So I had to put a small sort of cushion (you can see the tiny black thing between the seat and the cover at the touching point) in or to protect the seat leather from any cutting especially when I sit on it. I don't know if it's something regarding the GSA seat (I use it at the lowest) or if normal GS's has the same problem.. But anyway, good stuff and I'm happy with them.

Take care.

Burak

Ordered the oil cooler guard from Rick... R1150GSA plate.
Nice workmanship as with all of Kildala's products.
I also have his centerstand skid plate and the autocom mount (mounts under the diagnostic plug) on my '04 Adventure.

Don't know about the 1200 install for the cooler plate, but here's how I installed it on my 1150:

Remove the 2 torx bolts on the front airfoil and remove.
Unscrew headlight adjuster completely (clutch side).
Remove 3 torx bolts (1 top/2 side) and remove plastic headlight housing.
Remove 2 hex bolts holding headlight assembly (1 each side) and slide the entire assembly out (leave all wires connected). This will provide clearance to drop the cooler guard into place. It goes in almost vertically and snaps between the oil cooler fins and fender.
Rick includes a strip of adhesive foam which I placed top center of the cooler fins for vibration damping.
Make sure the guard is straight horizontally and reinstall parts in reverse order.
Don't forget to pop the parking light back in the socket on the headlight assembly if it came out when moved. It's much easier to put in place before the hex bolts are tightened. Same advice for the threaded adjuster shaft bolt... get it seated in the nylon pivot before you put the headlight assembly in place.


20 minutes... tops. Looks great and should protect well.

I feel I can continue to bring more items to market for a great price and continue to give you all my BEST in customer service.
I will have more news to follow.

Thanks so much for the support,
Rick

GREAT SERVICE and a Great Product 2

Just a note about the product and service you get from Rick. I bought a rack for my F650 from Rick and then sold the bike before I even opened the package. Since I did not let the new rack go with the sale, so I put it up on Flea market. The first day its on, Rick pm's me to let me know I can return it for credit or a refund. I did not really want to bother him with that so I left it on for a bit longer and then Rick pm's me an asks if I can send it out to one of his customers for him. Awesome.
The 1150 Adv I got when I sold the 650 was pretty well set up so I was not really looking for much but a rear rack would be nice for it also. Got it in the mail yesterday and all I can say is GREAT. Real nice!
In this day when crappy customer service is the norm, its good to find someone that has a good quality product, and goes the extra step to help his customers out.
Thanks Rick
Bob
