To install your new Custom World Left Frame Cover:
  • Loosen the Front Chrome cover.  Removal should not be necessary. 

  • Insert the Mounting Bracket left side first. 

  • Slightly tap the left side of the mounting bracket between the frame and the front chrome cover. 

  • After the U portion if the bracket is positioned behind the frame, make sure the 2 front clips line up with the mounting holes in the frame cover. 

  • Install the rear pivot bracket and securely tighten. 

  •   Tighten the front chrome cover back up. 

  • Install the new Left Frame cover.  Make sure the Alignment is correct, then tighten. 

  • You can adjust if necessary using the slots.

The end result is a very secure frame cover that looks good and can be taken off easily.

Neck Trim Installation, Custom World Part number 01-302

To install your new Custom World Neck Trim:
  • First thing, Remove the seat. 

  • Next remove the front and rear gas tank mounting bolts.  Lift tank up and slide back. 

  • Remove the plastic stock covers. 

  • Figure out proper orientation of the left and right covers.  The Tab on the new covers will be pointing towards the tank.  You will only be using one mounting bolt now per side.  The mounting bolt will be covered pretty much by the gas tank. 

  • Replace the plastic nuts with the U-Nuts provided in the appropriate position.

  • Use a little RTV to hold the rubber spacers on the back side of the neck trim.  This isn't necessary but a good thing to do, especially if you were to drop one. 

  • Custom World used to also use some double sided tape at the tab.  This isn't really necessary because it is held on quite securely.  If you do want to use something more, some industrial velcro works really good. This is helpful on the right side, in case you need to get back in there for access to your radiator cap.
