Do your rear wheel wells have the step-down at the rear lights/wiring area?
Did the cage feet require mods for that area?

Picture would answer both questions... looking for a ribbed roof / wheel well step compatible cage.

-Thanks!

Yes, little step down in the rear!

I like that cage also and never heard off this brand. Seems to have a lot fewer bolts than the Safety Devices cage. Looks cleaner.

I don't think thats going to do much for you sandwiched between the roof and the headliner. If you get that stuff (aluminum bubble wrap?) tight between two layers it will be a heat conductor. I tried it on one of my old Ducatis under the seat and got a lecture from a riding buddy.

Did have a concern with that thought however have a local friend who used it on a Land Cruiser with fiberglass headline - Much improved!

Got the snorkel pieced together - Just need to find mounting brackets (zip tied now) for the cage and spray some black on the clamps!!!

Btw, left side wing top adaptors can be used on the right side wing - Just flip it over...Duh on my part!!!!
