First piece of humble advice...ditch the AIS smog removal like 99% of us have.
Second, the directions suck, as their are no step by step pictures. I had some 'redos' that made me cuss when I installed more than once.
In the end though, they fit great, and I could not be happier.
IMHO, either unabiker sent you a defective or incorrect set, or perhaps you made an install mistake. Get rid of the AIS either way.

...its probably just me who is unhappy, but I am.
You're right...it's just you.
OK...more seriously...like the other dude said...if you live where you won't have inspector-nazi's poking around your ride...ditch the A.I.S. ASAP!
Removing it will not really improve engine performance but, it will clean up the front of your engine, drop a teansy bit of weight, and make the Unabiker rad guard installation much easier.
Once installed, the sucker is tough as nails and rock solid...and the bitch'n wavy design of the grill will attract the girls!
OK...so maybe it won't help you score with the babes:cry: but it is bitch'n.

I will keep playing with the guards. I machined down a post and it seems like it will fit in front of the AIS tube now.

I have wadded it up going at a fast pace and these guards are solid. Any guard that offers a 'multi- brace', that supports from the radiator to the tank should work well. You can use them with a stock tank or 3.3 gallon tank depending on the year, but will have to take off if you switch to a 6.6 gallon tank.

I didn't think they were that hard to install, I told my 14 yr old to do it.
My only complaint would be they seem like the weigh more than they need to.
XRMarty- Do you think the vents in your air box are worth the extra dirt?
