These were in the trunk of the bike when I bought her. I suspect they are some sort of dressy chrome attachments but cannot figure where they go.

From JC Whitney online. They don't carry anymore but this will give an idea where they go.

Hopefully the mounting hardware was in there also! If not you willprobably have to fabricate some because they areextremely hard to find.

I had these on my 1100 and looked great. I didn't use them in the summer due to the heat on the engine. These are commonly called "motor cookers". They are not hard to install/remove if you want to. It might be hard to find a good set like these.

A few years ago they got blamed for holding engine heat and causing stators to get hot and fail, I don't know for sure one way or the other.

We have water cooled engines, air flow is not required to cool engine. The 1500 and 1800s are completely covered.

It was the stator that was supposed to fail. Yes I know well they are water cooled.

The cavers refered to as stator cookers were plastic and covered a much larger area. And in my opinion were ugly as home made sin.

I have a set of the chrome covers on my 1100. They don't hold heat as mush as they kind of channel it somehow toward your legs.

The stators on 1100's and 1200's are known to fail, with or without these covers.
