Does the Cycra kit make it any more difficult to access and maintenance the air filter?

Is anyone running them with radiator braces? I can't see any reason why they wouldn't work, but if anyone has tried to mount them with Devol or any other cage style braces it would be nice to hear some input.

Nothing changes with the radiators so braces wouldn't matter or make a difference. You lose approximately 35mm between both sides. As far v add graphics, you can get the big graphics company's to make you cycra cut our buy std and cut then yourself. Here's mine. I found the best fit is to use the quick turn on the top and to get the 14 bolts and clips.

I just ordered a set for my 250F. I should have them on this week. I have been interested in these for a while now but finally decided to give them a try. I already stopped using my 1/4 turn fasteners. I lost a few on the sides and went to the standard bolt again (on the sides. still running the top one). Does this same issue exist on the Cycra shrouds? Or am I the only one dealing with that issue? (It could just be my knee braces grabbing them and coming loose).

The quick turn bolts stick out allot, and barely lock down.

I've had no problems at all with mine.. I don't have knee braces that could be why. If I started having troubles I would just take the d ring part off the quick turn so I just would have to use a flat head

Mine has the Cycra shrouds, and REDLABEL graphics.  I'm not sure if it has just the shrouds (the side panels are still two pieces, so definitely not the full kit, and I doubt that REDLABEL had a kit specifically for the Cycra plastics back when the previous owner got them.  They are either close enough for government work or he could have had to so some very light trimming, not sure.  They are slimmer for sure, but it seems like you get used to whatever the width is within a few minutes and don't really notice anymore until you ride something else.

I got a little bit of time on my Cycra shrouds now. I must say I really like them. I prefer the feel of the bike now, over stock. Looks-wise I like them, mainly due to the less-square bulky look from the front. Overall I am happy with the purchase so far. They do create a little bit more noise, but I don't mind that. Here is the bike with the shrouds / graphics installed.

Me, neither, you will eventually get used to anything.  Every bike sounds different, and eventually it sounds normal.

pull the d ring part apart and it will come off the dutez fastner so It can fit in the indent in the side of the plastics.

Mine came with the 2 side bolts, which sit flush against the plastic (and have an allen head).

 

I may have confused things earlier in the thread because I was losing the stock D-rings on the stock shrouds and put normal 8mm bolts in on the 2 side holes, before buying the Cycra set-up. Hopefully that clears it up for you.

I have a 14. So when I went from the stock bolts, to the 15 D-rings, I changed the slide with the different types of threads. Then I ended up going back to the regular bolts on the side because the D-rings suck and kept falling out. So when I got the Cycra kit, the new flush bolts went right in no problem. So I assume you will need to get the '14 threaded sleeve for the supplied allen bolts to work. Also, do not use the metal eyelit from the stock shroud, as the Cycra bolt will not fit if those are used. Dunno if that helps.

I just installed my vintage yellow cycra power flow plastics on my 2015. Kind of a pain at first and a little confusing. The airbox and radiator shrouds are the most troublesome. I ended up using the D-Ring as is for the top bolt and then just removed the D part of the other two fasteners for the airbox. The new red air intake guides didn't want to stay on at first but once they were secured by my radiator shrouds it all worked out. Loving it so far. I live 5 miles from the oregon dunes so the previous stock airbox would scoop handfuls of sand whenever I fell over (which happens often). I will give some more feedback after a few rides.
