Airfly Engine Guard Fitting
« on: August 30, 2014, 10:17:30 PM »
I just purchased the Airfly Engine guards to go on my G5 Military. However, as simple as they seem to be to fit, I can't get them to fit. Is there a secret system to line up the top, where it clamps to the frame, and the bottom metal bars? I assume that the bottom bars will be fastened either to the long bolt that goes through the frame and the front of the engine, or the holes in the frame just below that bolt. However, I cannot find any position where it all fits together, especially if the top clamp is fully aligned with the frame and not sticking out at the bottom bit of the clamp.

All help is appreciated.

Do not mess with the bolts that connect the engine to the frame.  Use the holes that are below them.

When I installed the engine guard on my G5, I had a problem with the top bar hitting the O2 sensor on the exhaust pipe.
To solve this problem I ended up putting a spacer between the frames front downtube and the top of the guard.

I don't know if it will help you but here's a link to my post about installing my engine guard.

Hopefully, these'll help a little:

I put everything together very loosely.  I also replaced the provided nuts with nylock nuts.

Thanks for the pictures Dan. That looks good. Is that a G5 or C5?

I re-read my post.  I should clarify.  I put everything together very loosely in order to get it all to fit, then I tightened the bolts.
