Rated 3 out of 5 by from Scratches on the right side I've installed it in my 2012 Fat Boy. After riding my bike a few blocks, I noted that the cover used on the left-sided rear axle nut was scratched. It happened because one of the original rear exausts (shot gun shape) inevitably touches the cover. So, I recommend you to think about if you will install both the covers in Fat Boy bikes with original shot-gun exausts.

Left side rear axle nut cover ( skull ). Would like to know trick to keep on.

My prob sounds just like hawgfans from Arkansas. I've been thru 2 covers with 1 found replaced and lost again. All were placed exactly as instructions indicated. Front two and right side, no problems. This could be a serious problem to self or especially those following behind me. I really like these covers and would appreciate any or all suggestions. Thanks. ✌️

Help with installation.

I have a Softail Deluxe and have installed all the axle nut covers on my bike. For some reason my bike keeps throwing the left rear cover off. I'm really not sure what the problem is. I installed the same covers on a friends Fatboy and he just rides and rides. Myself I've gone through 3 sets. The last ones lasting about 160 miles max. I just don't get it. Any help out there? please
