Arrow OEM Undercowling Attachments

Gents,
One or more of you must have ordered this, right?

I need some clarity:
How exactly does it attach to the bike? (or) The photo is pretty clear with what's happening on the right side, but on the left side where we can't see it, does one have to use any of the existing engine cover bolts?



Thanks.

On both sides, you use the existing engine bolts to attach brackets to the bike, and then you bolt the cowling to the brackets. There is also an attachment point at the top front.

Can you change the oil filter with the under cowling on the bike without removing the under cowling first?

Thanks.

I believe you can. The cowling does not cover the bottom of the engine, which I presume leaves the oil filter exposed.

Yes. The bottom is wide open.

Two Shots, What brand of crash bars are seen in your pic of the under cowling? My SW-M bars don't fit with the OEM under cowl.

Thanks, Mo
