Fitted my engine covers.

Found there was enough clearance to fit the LHS with the side panels in place, but the RHS needed a full front panel strip.


I was impressed how well all the fasteners came off.

The LHS cylinder sits forward of the RHS one.

Quality screwed fasteners, none of the plastic push fit rubbish like on Jap. bikes.

The picture is a "Hexhead" not a "Twin Cam" but the cylinder layout is the same.

WHAT?? They're not perfectly in line?  Must be a design flaw!
