X-Head 1250 Installation Tip

To install X-Head 1250 Cylinder Guards on an R1250 GSA, it is necessary to remove the lower crash bars to provide enough working room to position the Guard.  When re-positioning the crash bar, carefully position the rubber pad riveted to the inside of the GSA crash bar in the space provided at the back edge of the X-Head. Keep the crash bars loose when re-inserting its mounting bolts, then tighten after a good bar position is set.

Prior to mounting X-Head 1250 over the cylinders, it is recommended that a coat of paste wax be applied to the contact surfaces of the cylinder head.
