All diagrams i can find on GMPD, AllData and in the FSM show 3 bolts, one of which would be covered by the cowling.


edit:
what could this be hiding under my cowling?????
Touche

But I think it will still interfere with your brake master cyclinder. Oh well when haro gets it we'll see.

I hope it works... I have to admit I have taken it off again because I had an issue with the Master cylinder (my fault) and I have noticed how much it had improved my handling.
