Be carefull, the mesh may restrict airflow and effect cooling for the engine bu reducing flow throught the radiator and exhaust tube heat.

mesh

i bought a twin pack of mesh sheets from autozone took the fairings off and cut and shaped them, simple but finding a good way to mount it s the only brain teaser, till i thought of trying gorilla glue to the back of the black insulation. lets just say it still in place,but i can take it off and no damage to the fairings.

someone told me to use a temp rated silicone but it will take awhile to dry but when you want to take it off all you do is pill it out and then you can burn it off the mesh.
