I finished installing the radiator and oil guard. The radiator guard is loose. Im afraid it will vibrate during high speed. Check picture. Do i put a screw on that peace? Im not trying to drill the radiator. What is the point of that hook.

I can’t speak on the BMW ones, but my EvoTech guards have rubber grommets that mount in certain places.

Ok after putting in the clips, all is well and secured. Sucker is not going nowhere. Atleast now i can remove the fairings with ease. Will come in handy when i install my akra exhaust.

Better to do it twice then possibly loose the guard or get some parts all scuffed

You slide that little rubber stopper into that grove. That then cushions the radiator guard against the radiator. The clips go from the outside going in. You line up the tabs on the guard with the tabs on the faring. The tabs on the guard somewhat lay inside the faring tabs. Then push the clips on and they lock into place. Once you bolt the bike back together the guards are very secure.
