Thought I would share pics of my mesh grill. I think it came out pretty good. Hope it holds up for awhile, because I got carried away with the glue!

I have the same question cause I have a mesh piece and I have been wanting to do the same but was concerned about how to do it cause the two pieces won't be able to come apart.I would also like to see the back any chance of a pic.I will appreciate any infoLooks great! :bigthumbsup:
Just curious, did you glue it all the way around, or can you still split it at the top to install it on the bike?
K109, you're right, the two pieces will become one, unless and until you have a need to separate them. You should/can use silicone to adhere the mesh to the inside of the open radiator space...and I recommend using it all around the entire inside of the surface where the mesh is wrapped/bent to lay against the inside of the radiator shroud. First, you'll need to remove the radiator shroud, and keep it assembled as if it were on the bike. Then, make yourself a template of the open space. Lay the template on top of your mesh (use some tape to hold the template in place on the mesh), and cut your mesh 1" around the outside edge of your template, so you'll have enough mesh to bend over the inside edge of the entire radiator shroud opening. You'll want to bend the mesh so it's as close to the inside of the radiator shroud as possible, so the silicone can bond the two together. When I did mine, I first placed a spot of silicone on the top, bottom, and both sides, and let it cure a bit to hold the mesh in place. Then, the next day I placed silicone around the entire inside surface, to insure the mesh would never move. It's important to take your time, and try to avoid getting silicone on any part of the mesh or your radiator shroud that would be unsightly when it's all done and mounted on the bike.I have the same question cause I have a mesh piece and I have been wanting to do the same but was concerned about how to do it cause the two pieces won't be able to come apart.I would also like to see the back any chance of a pic.I will appreciate any info
