BMW R9T Side Panels

BMW R NINET, BMW R9T, BMW R NINET Side Panel Covers, BMW R9T Side Panel Covers, R NINET Air Box Covers, R9T Air Box Covers, laser profiled, CNC formed, designed in the UK by craftsmen.

Please be aware these are no longer available in gloss black due to unforeseen issues, we have had to replace with a satin finish. This does not affect the performance of the part in any way.

This product is designed to cover the battery box area on both the LH and RH sides. In either brushed stainless steel or satin black powder coated finish, this product disguises the battery box and enhances the custom-ability and look of the R9T.

The biggest challenge with the design of this product was coming up with a (workable) fastening solution other than what is currently on offer from other manufacturers. (being self tapping fasteners screwed directly into the battery box, aaargh!).

What we did was to take a standard rubber lined stainless steel P-clamp, remove the rubber and attach a specialist sheet metal fastener (an M5 Rivbush). This removes the difficulty of trying to hold a nut in place behind the clamp during fitting. The P-clamps are also heavily powder coated in satin black to match the covers and to blend in with the frame.

The panels are attached using 3 modified P-clamps either side and once all the clamps are tightened hold the panels securely in place. The product also features Torx headed fasteners to maintain fastener head continuity throughout the bike.

Made from 1mm thick 304 grade stainless steel these parts offer a robust, durable alternative to the unsightly battery box area.

Allow around 20 minutes for fitting, we do recommend patience to ensure that no fasteners get cross threaded (easy to do if a lapse in concentration is allowed).

Every pair of brushed stainless steel finish panels comes with some rubber edging for fitting around the outside edge, if desired. The powder coated panels do not require this.

R9T side panels

A quality product that I am quite happy with.

Very well made.

The trick to getting the screw started in the P clamp is using a small zip tie to draw it down, start the screw, then cut the tie off.

I figured this out after a loooooong struggle with the first clamp.
