Engine Guard Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engine Guard Kit Bought this to enhance the look of my 2013 Sportster XL1200C and to protect my bike just in case. Went on in about 15-20 minutes with no issues. Looks great and I am looking forward to adding some highway pegs for those longer trips. I live in New England so I hope to extend my season with the addition of soft lowers when the temp drops. I hope I never need it to protect my bike but it brings some peace of mind in case it happens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to the bike I am very satisfied with the look and quality of this part. It went on in about an hour with no issues installing whatsoever. Take your time lining everything up before you tighten bolts and it all fits fine. I put this on my 2014 48 and it's the perfect size, not too big or small, and fits the lines of the bike how it should. I also added the Custom Harley Scripted Footpegs. I am 6'2" and have to stretch out comfortably to put my feet on the pegs. Would highly recommend this to all tall Sportster riders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Engine Guard i'm not sure what is up with Harley's part# on sportster engine guards, but according to Harley these will not fit a 2013 XL883L... After some research, I bought them for my wife's 2013 883 superlow, and they fit perfectly... I even went to the dealership, and proved it to them... The dealer only had this model in stock, and i told him i wanted to try them anyway,,, Everything matched up perfectly... Couldn't be happier...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from engine guard, sporster works great... I bought this for my girlfriends sportster and as she was backing it out of the garage she dumped it. lucky we just had the bars installed. saved the bike from damage. everything still looks great, no marks or scrapes....

Will this engine guard fit on a 2010 1200L sportster that has been modified to forward controls.

My bike was manufactured originally with mid, but th eprevious owner changed them to forward. Similar guards on other websites say it won't fit but I don't know if yours would. Please advise

Hi, can I fit forward controlls with that engine guard installed on bike

2014 superlow sporster xl388l in Australia thanks B Richter
Asked by: Bernd
Hi Bernd, Engine Guard Kit P/N 49060-04 doesn't fit 2014 XL883L. You would need to get P/N 49287-11 for '11-later XL883L models. This kit will fit with a forward control kit. You might want to double check with your local dealer for any nuances with Australian vehicle configuration that would not allow this to fit. Hope that helps!
