Fitting Evotech engine guard.

Post by mogas64 » Thu Mar 15, 2018 10:21 am

I see from the downloadable instructions that you use engine bolts to fix it in place, my concern is undoing factory torqued engine bolts to fit the guard ! what about oil leaks etc, anyone fitted one that can tell me how it went.


Thanks all.

Mogas, is this the engine guard your asking about. If so its a very quick and easy install. The bolt removed and reinstalled is not anything I was concerned about.

Yep that's the one, I was just concerned about taking out the bolts on the engine casing that are used to secure the guard in place, so there are no oil leaks etc and what torque do you set them at when you screen them back in?. Cheers all.

Mogas, They were not much breaking loose so I just tightened them down. :roll: No oil loss really simple bolt up and fits like a top notch aftermarket should. I have their frame sliders and installing them soon. :mrgreen:

Thanks for reply, I fitted Evotechs Rectifier guard a few weeks ago, it smartens up the underside of seat unit and covers up the open area where the Rec is.
