Hello,

I wanted to re-install the radiator trim cover panel (oem 46631453057) on my K1100 rs.
Unfortunately I lost the pictures of how it was mounted.
Can someone help me out, please?

Hi all,

I checked the Clymer and Official BMW servicing manual, but couldn't define the exact location of the cover (part 15 on the picture)

Doesn't fit on any part of the radiator or radiator panel

Is this the part that fits tight up against the frame just behind the headstock? It holds the wiring up and away from the space behind the radiator. The notch looks like it fits against the frame tubing comprising the headstock .

Is it upside down in the pic Rob, it faces up and site behind the bracing but I cant find a pic and realoem doesn't have a good pic either. I looked at this the other day but couldn't remember where it fitted

Yes, I think it is pictured upside down in the photo, Keith.  The hole is to allow the HES cable and temp sensor cable to come through, meaning it should be on the right side of the motorcycle.

That's what it is, exactly. Not radiator related.

The cover comes on the horizontal tubing underneath the frame, just above the air filter box, right?
And all the wiring comes on top of it.

Ok, thank you guys. I really appreciate your help.
I' afraid that it will take me some hours of cursing and swearing to install it properly.
Electrical wiring, brake lines and air filter box are already in place.
Should have lost the cover, what is missing can't be installed.

Why bother? It's not an absolute necessity. Neither of my bikes have that cover on.

Because it's proper and right.  
Don't confuse the issue by pointing out its uselessness,  you barbarian

I think the part description gives a clue. As well as supporting wiring and the large plug/sockets, it would have the effect of deflecting radiator heated air away from the wiring and the bottom of the tank. Overheating tank is a well known issue. Before I installed a fuel cooler, I once actually burned my thigh on the side of the tank while riding.

Yes. An absolute necessity I would agree. Not only heat Bill, but I think it would go a long way to keeping water and dirt out of the electrical connections. Trouble enough as it is with connections under there 🤡

I suppose you could get away with it if you were a fair weather rider tho Installation of the radiator cover panel Donald-trump-shrug-1024x551
